Taking a digital photography course in South Africa can be extremely fun and fulfilling. This is a beautiful, vivid, and exciting country, offering photographers plenty of work opportunities and interesting subjects to take photos of.

What are the advantages of taking a course in photography?

Did you know?

  • A picture should only have one centre of interest. Other elements in the picture should support the centre of interest through diverting attention towards it.
  • Subjects should preferably be placed at the intersection of 3 imaginary horizontal and vertical lines. This is called the ‘rule of thirds’.
  • Tilting your camera slightly to create artificial diagonal lines creates tension. This is called a ‘Dutch tilt’.
