Fall (back) in love with photography

Do you want to take better pictures but don’t know where to start? Or have you been photographing for a while, but the results are hit and miss? Photography Essentials is the course that will help you consistently get great images.

We’ll first look at the “big picture” to familiarize you with what makes up a photograph: exposure, composition, and storytelling. Next, we’ll break down the whole into pieces so you understand what each does. Then we’ll put them back together again so you know how to work each piece.

All you need is a digital camera with full manual mode. No post-processing skills necessary.

“This course has really been fun, and I have learned so much”

 

Everything is explained simply and clearly

The richly illustrated course material walks you through many case studies in different photography genres so you see examples of how to apply your newly acquired knowledge to any of your own personal areas of interest, such as photographing people, landscapes, or still life.

This easy to follow course is designed to grow your confidence and skill. Even if you’ve been photographing for a while, Photography Essentials will help you get great shots consistently.
