From the very moment of its invention in the early 19th century, photography has been used for recording all important events and keeping them for the posterity. Thus, photographs are guardians of our memories. Taking photographs has become an almost inevitable part of daily life. Today, when we all have cameras, we use them to capture time at the right moment, but also to express ideas, attitudes and emotions. Of course, there is a difference in the quality and focus of shots taken by amateurs and those created by the professional's trained eye. To create high-quality photographs, a professional photographer must possess specific knowledge (when to use natural and artificial lighting; how to choose the best angle; when to apply additional processing and final touches on photographs, etc.). Certain photographers specialise in various genres: portraits, commercial photography, photographs for scientific purposes, landscapes, journalism or art photography. Whether you choose to take photos as an amateur or intend to make it your profession, this will be a welcome opportunity to learn the little tricks of great masters of photography.
Having completed the photography course successfully, candidates will possess theoretical knowledge related to photography, and will be able to use them for a creative use of photographic parametres, lighting and computer-processed photography. In addition, they will learn about concepts such as exposure, shutter, focus length, ISO value etc.

The course for professional photographers runs for two months. Instruction is conducted in groups, and the Open University's clasrooms and computing cabinet are available to learners.
