    What the Course Entails: This course is intended for people who understand how to use their drone, but are new to photography, and want to learn the theoretical & technical fundamentals in order to take a great shot.

    • More specifically we will cover key theoretical concepts that will assist with composing better shots including but not limited to framing, rule of thirds and leading lines.
    • We will also cover technical aspects including shutter speed, ISO, aperture & white balance so that users can move from auto to manual mode.
    • Finally we will reveal how to edit photos in post processing in order to make colours punch and photos standout.
    • A book is given to students on the night.

    As you can imagine there is a lot packed into this session, and believe it is well worth the investment in order to accelerate your drone photography skills.
