This course is the next level in photography following our Beginners in Digital Photography course. Most students have already completed the Beginners course although it is not required. A small amount of knowledge of cameras, taking photographs and editing photos is all you need.

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.

Photographic challenges were set such as ‘Shape’ and  ‘A Touch of Colour’ and these were strategic in building skills and confidence.

It is a huge pleasure to see enthusiastic photographers grow in their love for photography and hone their visual and technical skills for the purpose of their own enjoyment as well as giving pleasure to others.
