Photography is not just about pictures. It is the art of recording memorable moments forever and can be a hobby, a career or an art form. A photography course can contribute significantly to the development of essential aesthetic skills.

It depends on a range of abilities and technical knowledge, and in this course, you will learn everything you need to become a better photographer
Understanding camera equipment
In the first two lessons you will learn the fundamentals of camera equipment.

You will also be taught how to choose the right lens for each photo shoot.

In these sessions, you will learn the skills you need to bring drama and elegance to your image, and will begin to learn the importance of arranging your shot to produce the most impressive image, focusing on all of the elements that make up composition including distance and angles.
Using light effectively is a vital part of photography, and this subject is dealt with thoroughly in lesson five, in which you will discover how to use a light meter, while lesson six introduces manual mode, which offers the photographer the maximum in creative expression.
