When all the hard work is done and your images are looking amazing, you will want them to look as good in print as they do on screen. This can often be the most frustrating part of the photographic process. You can put in all of that hard work perfecting your images, only to get prints back that are either too bright or too dark. The colours can often be totally different than what you saw on screen. Colour management is essential to ensure you have consistent colour, tone, brightness levels, contrast from camera all the way through the post production stages, right up to the final print.Sign up now!

I'm learning so much in the photography course! The lessons are interesting and fun. I love that Tom gives visual examples of the concepts and ideas being taught.
The photography course that Shaw Academy has to offer is over the top! When signing up, I wasn't sure how well it would go, if I would have much interaction with the staff, if comprehension would be an issue? Let me just say, this course can start anyone, and I mean anyone in the right direction! Thomas Woods has an amazing skill as an instructor. You can tell that he is passionate about what he does & that in turn creates excitement and passion in us as students.
If you want to expand your photography skills and knowledge, take your photography to the next level or just have a better understanding of what you have already been doing, then Diploma in Photography is for you! Diploma in Photography is a well designed and well presented course. The Information is well thought out and delivered in each lesson in concise easy-to-understand format, with good audio and visual presentation.

I am LOVING this Foundation of Photography course! I have a fancy camera and not much of an idea how to use it to take control and to take amazing photos. When I saw the Groupon I was intrigued.
I have registered with to do my Photography Course, and I have been nothing but pleased. The information is stunningly laid out and the instructors are clear and very interactive.
