Grow your photography practice at Longwood with this course designed for beginner and intermediate photographers. We’ll start by reviewing the basics of digital photography online to get acquainted with manual settings and will work with exposure and metering to adapt to different light quality. Then, put your knowledge to work as you team up with instructors Jon Cox and Dick Greenwood here at Longwood as they guide you through three sessions in the Conservatory. Your skills will be blossoming in no time!
