BETTER PICTURES, BETTER REPORTS – INSPECTION PHOTOGRAPHY
Tuesday, January 22nd, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
This course is designed to teach the fundamentals of photography so that you can get better pictures for your inspection reports. Photography is full of compromises that can make getting clear pictures to convey issues difficult. Even today’s automated cameras can be adjusted or tricked to overcome most of these compromises that are inherent in photography, and this course will provide tips on how to do this. Sharper and clearer pictures can improve the information your report provides to your clients. The camera can also be used to replace a notepad and this course will show you how. Camera features and selections will also be covered.
