Our Intermediate Photography Course is specifically designed to strengthen the basic photography points covered in our 5 Sessions Basic Photography Course, allowing you to have a thorough understanding of the essentials of making marvelous pictures. 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.

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

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.
