Digital Photography Courses (Two Days)
Photography Training & Coaching
If you are new or inexperienced with digital photography, Peter can teach you more than just the basics to become proficient with your camera and to improve your photographic technique.
This two day imagery course is primarily designed for investigators, journalists and enforcement officers who use digital SLR, mirrorless and video cameras in order to obtain photographic evidence.
Many investigators often fall into the trap of obtaining photographic images or video which are of poor quality and of little evidential value. Unfamiliarity of the equipment, incorrect exposure, blur, camera shake, poor focus and lack of experience causes many problems.
