All students must have a knowledge of manual mode. We will not discuss how to achieve perfect exposure. Students must have a camera, preferably a DSLR. Lightroom editing is discussed and encouraged to have. There is also one Photoshop editing video.

*You can do this course with just a phone, however, it will be easier if you already have a firm grasp on photography.
