    Hello,

    I took the course there before and it's quite okay since you do learn some basic technics. However untimately, photography is about practise, practise and more practise. So if you wanna save the money, you could always go to the library and borrow some books to read up and then experiment on your own.

    you can try OBJECTIV or OBJECTIFS i forgot
    another one is JMP - James Master Photography
    all basic courses ( i think) is abt 250-300

    so if you want to learn fast and on your own...take sigrd's advise...practise a lot by keeping notes.
    if you want that course thingy...go thru any one that you like...

    I think PSS at selegie should provide you with an outstanding overview of basic photography.

    Objectifs -- I think they have very good instructors there. Since your office is near there, you can easily drop by there during lunch time or after work to check it out.Currently they have some students work on display.

    Took the B&W course there. I find that the instructors there are generally younger & very inspiring.
    However, it is a little more ex the than others.

    I took the course at the Substation but I only lasted about 3 weeks out of the 10. It was very theoretical but gave me enough knowledge to then read up on things and go out there and practise. Being an Ang Moh I found it hard keeping up with the very Singlish instruction!
