With the basic lessons on “Basics of Photography” you can begin to take better photos of any subject and get more enjoyment from your photography. Below is a courses list of the “Basics of Photography” that we  currently offer.


Part I: Understanding How Your Digital Camera Works (5 Lessons)

With so many cameras available, figuring out how all the specifications and options translate into your everyday use is complicated. For our first course in the “Basics of Photography”, we learn how cameras work and make sense of what that means in terms of choosing a camera to buy and how that choice affects your photographs.

Part II: Your Camera’s Automatic and Assisted Settings (4 Lessons)

In this course we take a look at your camera’s various assisted and automatic settings.

Part III: Your Camera’s Manual Settings (7 Lessons)

In this course we take away our handicap and jump into the fun stuff: manual mode. We look at the details of shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, as well as how those settings affect your photos.

Part IV: Composition and Technique (8 Lessons)

A well-composed photograph is really a matter of opinion, but there are a few tricks that tend to result in better pictures. That’s what we take a look at in this course.

Part V: Editing Images in Post (9 Lessons)

For this final photography course, we look at the final step: editing your images. We try different kinds of techniques for color correction, touch ups, and a few other fun effects.
