Intermediate Photography Course
“Urban Exploration”

Creativity is not magic. It is magical.

Intermediate Photography Course Introduction

Our Intermediate & Advanced Photography Course is specifically designed to strengthen the essential photography points covered in our 4 Sessions Basic Photography Course, and discover situations where photographers break them to achieve creativity.

Contrary to popular belief, creativity is not a talent given to a select few. It is a process and a set of learnable skills. Creative thinking often starts with different thinking. There are ways you can purposefully open your mind to a new perspective to see if it changes the way you think about and approach composition in photography.

Creating an aspiring picture requires your power of imagination, eye for photography even to the slightest details, continuous practice, knowledge of camera functions, and photography know-how. No amount of words can compete with the power of a creatively taken picture and no photographer can capture a picture without using their imagination.

Our 5 Sessions Intermediate Photography Course will equip you with a great variety of useful photography techniques suitable to be applied in real-world situations with full hands-on experiences in practical, at some of the most popular photography locations in Singapore.

Hence, in photography, the power of imagination brings the difference between photographers. The equipment used might be similar, however, thoughts on the creation of the picture in similar conditions by different photographers will produce different creative results. Creative expertise is all about combining modern theory with relevant functional abilities.

Upon completing our 4 Sessions Intermediate Photography Course, Urban Exploration, be sure you can handle most of the different photography situations you might encounter soon.
