Introduction to Photography Course 2022

The course is conducted by experienced members of the club and guests who are specialists across many areas of photography.  It is designed to help not only new DSLR owners, but also those with some knowledge who wish to know more about using their camera.

There are nine sessions with seven classes on Wednesday evenings 7:30pm – 9:30pm. These are held in the Clubrooms at St Pius X school hall, 431 Waterdale Road Heidelberg West.

Two other practical sessions are held as a mid week night shoot at South Bank and a daylight Sunday outdoor shoot in an area nearby.

There are two assignments where your images will be constructively critiqued by our experienced members.
