Specially tailored
for Leica users and digital photographers

Each student works individually why you can work fast or slow and even go on holiday between sections.

The course starts as soon as you have signed up and paid.

 

You can ask questions
You can ask any question that is relevant for your current level of photography. And questions and doubts that arise during the assignments can be addressed.

Working with light
The Extension Course take off in the fact that "all photography has to do with light," which will turn out to be a large enough truth to keep you occupied for a while – because light exist in different colors, strengths and comes from many sources.

Focusing on what's on important
The extension course will make it easy to see which parts in photography is essential , and which are cool, but not even remotely essential.

One of the tricks is that the extension course covers all the stuff you thought you knew about, or you thought that the camera or your computer did automatically.

In other words, there will be things to learn and be surprised about.

How to make pictures that work
Composition is just one part of making great pictures, and it ties into timing, prediction, framing and rhythm as well as light. And we'll look at how to produce filmic storytelling in a single image.

What you can do with your talent
We will also cover the message and language of photography, your goals as a photographer and your responsibilities as a communicator and artist.

It will all make sense
The many questions that open up during the extension course - such as which camera you should use, what type of lenses, if you do things right, if you should choose a rangefinder camera or a SLR - well, those and many other questions will fall in place.

Is this for you?

Looking for excellence in photography, doing it simple, effective and the right way, being able to see and manage the magic light?

The main purpose of the extension course is to make you and not the camera the photographer. This implies that after the course you will know exactly which camera is the right tool for you and how to use it.

Those days where you went into a photo shop to buy "a camera that takes good pictures" will be over.

You as a person will know how to take great pictures with any camera.


A familiar situation: Some times it works, some times it doesn't. The course answers why and puts you in control of it.

The basics and the history
We go over all the basics of photography from early history to the ins and outs of today's advanced cameras and end up with a simple understanding of how photography is basically about light - and how to control it.

 


It's fun when you know how
This of course will affect your enthusiasm for photography, as well as your ambitions as a photographer. But mainly you will be able to focus your talent on what is in front of the camera. I've had semi-pro photographers turn professional after the course, but everyone who attends will grow and become more active with better results.

Who can benefit from this?
The people who attend the course are all ages - and range from professional working photographers to keen amateurs, to people who have just recently taken up the interest of photography again and now want to get updated on digital technology. Also a great many has as part of their job also to take photographs now and then, and this course is perfect for this.

Filling in the things you don't know
We start from the basics and up. Because while we don't want to admit it, we all have blind spots and misunderstandings in the field of photography. That goes for professionals and amateurs, and we fill those blind spots with knowledge and certainty.
On top of that we add tricks and know-how you can use immediately to improve your photography.
