Interested in improving your landscape photography skills? If you would like to learn more about the functions of your camera, how to utilize those functions to create better landscape photographs and learn the basic rules of composition, this is the class for you.
The course will focus on making the best use of camera functions to improve your images and discussing the elements of composition as they relate to landscape photography.
Weather permitting, students will have an opportunity to explore and photograph the landscape in and around Milan.
