Have more confidence and skill to get the most out of your smartphone to take photographs, use a single lens reflex digital camera, discuss what makes a good photograph, choose which of your pictures you want to show to people, and understand the process of photography from taking pictures to making prints.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
