Intermediate 102: Nature Photography

This Intermediate course picks up from where our Basic Photography left off. It will cover more technical and creative aspects for students to gain better understanding of the thought process during photo making. 
From a close-up photo of an interesting spider, to the breathtaking view of the Singapore Sunrise, award winning photographer Joseph Goh will show you how it’s done. He will share his knowledge on choosing the right equipment and how to set it up correctly to get the winning shot. 
**Please note that for lesson 3 practical, participants will have the option to enter the flower dome at Gardens by the Bay for photo taking if the entire class is agreeable. (Entrance ticket will be borne by the course participants.)
Students are expected to have completed our Basic Photography course or have good knowledge of the following:-
  • Functionalities of your personal DSLR or any interchangeable lens camera system
  • Photography foundation (i.e. you know the difference between f/2 and f/22, why you would choose one over the other and knowing when shots turn out all blurry, you can troubleshoot to shoot again to get it sharp)
  • Comfortable working/shooting with manual (M) mode of your camera
