This 10 week course can be a follow on from the Beginners in Digital Photography course and to complete the course the students are encouraged to present printed and mounted images on a chosen theme.

 The Improvers course also held in St Patricks Parish Centre, Loughboy, Kilkenny and tutored by Amanda Burke, covers what a digital SLR or bridge camera owner needs to know so that they can be creative with their photography. Some of the most common issues that face photographers starting out are such things as understanding aperture and shutter speed, metering and how light affects our photographs.

The course also covers advanced aspects of editing the digital image in Photoshop and similar applications in order to maintain quality and to decide how to enhance the original captured photograph where needed or desired.

The course is not just informative but it is also practical and fun. Exhibiting in a public place in Kilkenny at the end of it adds to the enjoyment of being with an enthusiastic group of photographers who usually end up becoming friends.
