Q. I don’t know anything about Photography, I’m just a beginner. Will this course be helpful for me?

Ans. Absolutely, this course is for beginners. The course has been designed assuming that the participant has no knowledge/experience in photography.

Q. Can I learn everything about Photography in this course?

Ans. It is possible to learn the basic concepts in this course.

But, to master them, you will need some practice. The theory session is just an introduction to the ocean where you are about to dive in. It will provide you enough knowledge to start. You will need to practice. There are a lot of exercises in the course and if you follow them, you will definitely be able to take good control of your camera and can take great pictures.
