By joining this course, you'll receive a series of video-based and written lessons that will take you through the essential principles of photography.
A big mistake that people often make is to use flash or to shoot with artificial light. We'll get back to basics and learn how to understand and use natural light.
How to place your subject in the image so it looks good, how the foreground and background relate to each other, and visually how your images are structured.
Sometimes, just getting going can be a challenge. I'll give you a series of inspiring ideas for projects and exercises to help you improve your photography.
If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, you will become an agent of evil.
Words like ISO, Exposure, Depth of Field, Aperture, all those numbers on various dials… understand what they all mean!
You don't need a fancy camera to take this course! Use whatever you have and we have guides for where to find your settings.
