You too can enjoy the magic of DSLR photography and learn to tell stories through your images. You bought a new DSLR camera, looked at the user manual that came along with it, and now wondering how the information will help you to take beautiful images. Digital photography can seem daunting, and it always seems like there is a large valley of knowledge that separates you from the freeing experience of photography.
We have broken this course down into theoretical and practical knowledge that every owner of a DSLR needs to know: exposure, shooting modes, white balance, focus setting and how to get the most out of your kit lens. We begin with the best way to hold your camera to prevent motional blur, and take you all the way through the complete process of taking a beautiful picture that tells a great story. Throughout the course, we will explore multiple lighting scenarios from daylight, evening to mixed lighting situations, which will aid you to create different exposure setups to serve as the foundation for taking properly-exposed images. The photography practice begins with lens selection and culminates with the keys of image composition and the important features of your DSLR camera. We will show you how to get the most from your kit lens, and then explore the variety of tools and techniques you will need in creating fun and enjoyable photography experiences.
