Level 6 Master

Level 6 training is not about image evaluation or image judging, it has in fact travelled full circle from Level 1 being all about the judge as a person and photographic judge, through the intermediate levels which included discussion on many of the genre in photography to level 6 where at this level you will hopefully learn more about some of the aspects behind art and photography.
