Q). What’s the difference between the different camera skill levels?

A). We have 3 camera skill levels

i)   Anyone
ii)  Intermediate
iii) Advanced

ANYONE:  Anyone means anyone; at whatever camera skill level you are at.   It assumes no previous camera knowledge as it will either cover this on the course, or the technical side of the subject is not important and its more about tips and technique rather than how to use a camera.

INTERMEDIATE:  Suitable for people who want to take there photography to the next level.  They either want to move away from the auto modes into the Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority modes or they are already experimenting on a regular basis with these, but want to push themselves  further.

ADVANCED: This is a camera skill level where people are comfortable with their camera and understand how to control Depth of Field, and who regularly use TV or AV modes
