This course is designed either as a short stand alone course (4 lessons) or as a component of a larger course (eg. certificate or diploma). Anyone attempting it should have first studied photographic practice or a similar course, to develop their skills and style. This course is not focussed on improving the photos you take; rather it focuses on your ability to select appropriate photos for a purpose, and to then present those photos in an appropriate way.

The culmination of this module is the production of a Portfolio which can be used by the student to sell themselves when applying for a job or making a presentation to a client.  The course also looks at online folios, digital slideshows and resizing images.

This is a new course!
