Presumably, buying a DSLR camera should allow you to take professional photos easily. But the truth is that taking good photos takes a lot more than having a fancy camera and a pair of hands to hold it.

If you have a real passion for photography but not the skills for it, this beginner course will be a rewarding experience for you. You will learn the principles of photography and earn the skills to taking amazing photos as you walk through the streets of Sydney at night. You can expect to learn to take stunning photos of city buildings like The Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. You will also be skilled in painting with light to achieve different effects using light toys (included in course)
