Photography courses

The Studentenwerk offers during the semester a total of three photo courses for different levels. In the beginner course you will get to know the basics of digital photography. The advanced course deals with the topics image composition, visual language and image perception. The photo course for advanced learners depends on the needs of the participants and is determined by their content. Here you can realise your own image ideas with the help of the instructor.  During the semester break, there is usually a photo holiday course for beginners.
