[Opening title] RMIT Short Courses
[Visual] Teacher standing in front of white board showing camera settings in front of a group of students, followed by close-up of teacher speaking to the camera.
Deborah Dorman (Narrator): My name's Deborah Dorman, I teach a number of short courses at RMIT. The introduction to photography level one, level two, and a people and portrait course. The courses are very comprehensive. The introductory course covers everything from your technical camera skills, exposure, and what all the bells, and buttons, and whistles do. Through to composition design, lighting. We get all ages from high school students, through to retirees.

Deb Dorman: There are some people that are looking to build a folio to go on to further education, others are just doing it for a hobby.
[Visual] Student Bob Collins giving testimonial to the camera in a photography studio
Bob Collins: I'm a full-time tradesman, but always been into videography, or anything to do with cameras. It's something to start off at, doing it for short course.
[Visual] Students taking photos in the street. Slow motion shot of students taking photos of water balloon being popped.
Bob: It can make you think whether or not I do want to push it. I knew that I had a lot of potential to get ... to look better. Within the first lesson, practiced that during the week and you can definitely see the quality of photo turned out a lot better. I've learned a lot.
Deborah Dorman: One of the things with the short courses is that there's no formal assessment. So if you feel you're going to be anxious about passing, then you don't have to worry. It's just adult education. You come, you learn at your own pace. When you get to the end of it, just to see how excited they are about photography and that they know how to get the results that they want now, it's very rewarding.
