Course Introduction

Getting started in the world of digital photography today can seem overwhelming. Our cameras have more buttons, dials, and menu options than any person can reasonably be expected to keep track of. However don’t be discouraged if you have failed to comprehend what they mean in the world of photography. If we brush aside the terminology and sales gimmicks, photography today is just as simple as it was 50 years ago; maybe even simpler.

To understand photography. You will need to understand the three basic elements of photography, and how they relate to each other, you’ll only be limited by your creativity and the patience to practice & once you understand how these things affect your images and how they relate to each other, everything else just falls right in to place.  Register now with us now to build a good foundation in basic photography and be mentored personally by Keith Low, Founder of Pictorial on practical field trips.

If you are looking to learn night photography as well, we have a 4 Sessions Basic Photography Course, City Discovery course which will include a night session. Both are suitable for new or pre-camera owners.

Pictures are created by the photographer’s intention; it should not be purely an end product of an editing software. Ever since Pictorial started guiding students in our basic photography course, we have deliberately disallowed our students from using any image-processing software. Understanding photography techniques via full manual level of control and not P/A/S modes, camera systems and lenses, correct usage of filters & understanding nature of lighting should be foundations of learning basic photography.

We live in a digital age where even our mobile phones can perform simple photography editing tasks, with post-processing software eliminating the need for proper photography techniques. We believe that there is a greater satisfaction in learning proper photography techniques using a holistic approach towards learning, rather than simply relying on software.

Good photography is not always about the equipment. Rather, it’s about seeing something, knowing how you want it to look, and producing it in a final art work. Making it and seeing it in the first place are what makes a photographer. The powers of observation is everything. You may call it seeing, vision or imagination but it all comes down to the same thing; the ability to envision a final result in your mind’s eye, and then to make it so with the tools at hand.
