Beginner Photography Course:
With the rush of the beginning of the year over, it’s time to dust off that DSLR camera and explore its creative possibilities. The Cape Town School of Photography’s DSLR 1 Course is the perfect place to start. You will learn how to utilise all your camera settings to get the best out of your investment. In response to student feedback the course now runs for 7 weeks (8 sessions), making it more manageable without removing any of the key content. We’ve also increased the very popular walkabout practical shoots from one to two.

Lightroom is the best all-in-one digital package on the market. With no image editing platform quite like it, it’s an essential tool for professional or hobbyist photographers alike. The image editing capabilities of Lightroom 5 have elevated it to a single piece of software to cover all your photographic needs. Our course is designed to gain an understanding of the best workflow process and how to adapt this to your specific editing and library management requirements. We teach you how to use Lightroom and it’s features to its full capability while giving you hands-on experience of working in the application.
The studio, a magical place of bouncing light, reflectors and light tables, can seem daunting from the outside. CTSP’s workshops will demystify this space, and introduce you to the wonderful world of controlled light, as well as teach you how to use the studio in conjunction with natural light to create those magazine layouts you so aspire to.
