Intro Course on Digital Photography from E.D. Altares

Did you recently purchase a digital camera?  Have you started taking your own photos but still lack the confidence to show them to the world?  Do you want to learn the ropes and possess the right skills to come up with really good images?

Then fret not!  This summer, the renowned E.D. Altares Photography has something in store for master-photographer-wannabees through a series of courses meant to enhance your skills in digital photo-imaging!

The first course, for beginners is aptly called “INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY”, which will be offered on May 7 and 8, 2011 at the Amandari Cove, Dacera Road, General Santos City.



As the course name suggests, this is a basic photography course that’s truly basic –   a course that will help beginners make sense of the the functions and settings of their cameras. This will give them the confidence of shooting outside the program or auto modes and incorporate more of their creativity in your captured images.

The E.D. Altares Photography INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE is a light course with enough activities to support the concepts being introduced in a span of two days.

The first day is mostly a mix of lecture and hands-on application of the topics. The second day is part portraiture photo shoot and part discussion and evaluation of the outputs of the participants.

The two-day INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY Course will set you back at only P2,500.

1. For reservations, a 50% downpayment is required.
2. The downpayment is non-refundable within 5 days prior to date of workshop.
3. Registration must be paid in full, 3 days before the date of workshop;  otherwise, your slot will be given to the wait listed participants.

    Great news! Incidentally I just bought a new digicam (not dslr) last week & I would love to learn more basic lessons para ma inhance pa lalo ang artistic shots in me. Mukhang may kamahalan lang ang joining fee but maybe its worth naman siguro, hehe.
