About This Course

This course brings all participants to a high level of understanding of the various modes on the camera and when best to use them. At the finish, you will be taking full control of your camera. We will teach you the fundamentals of photography in such a way that your photography quality will jump to completely new heights.

What kind of student takes this course?

The Digital Photography Level 4 - Advanced Level Course is aimed squarely at people who have been playing around with Aperture, Shutter, and Manual Modes. They will also have been finding it frustrating trying to figure out why some effects work well, and why others do not.

What past experience is needed?

Students taking this course will have been taking photographs with a digital SLR for at least 18 months and now want to get deep under the bonnet of the Camera. They also want to understand what the three key modes (Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual) are best used for and when to use them.

While not vital, it will help if you have also been playing around with flash.

Recommended Equipment

To get the most out of this course your camera needs to have Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, ideally an SLR or Mirrorless camera (see here for information on the different types of camera).

As this course covers both manual and wireless flash, it would help if you have at least one external flashgun, This is not a requirement, as many students use the flash section of the course to help them figure out what can of flash equipment to buy.

The course is not suitable for Bridge Cameras, Compact/Point & Shoot Cameras, or Phones.

COURSE OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, you will have a full understanding of the Exposure Triangle, and how to apply it to various situations. You will also have a deeper understanding of the mechanics of making your camera do precisely what you want it to do.

ASSIGNMENTS

This course sets weekly assignments, each one based on the content of that class (course content here). All images are then gently critiqued at the start of the next lesson. We even set a simple assignment for week one that you can present at the opening class, just to help get you started.

PHOTO CRITIQUES

Probably the most valuable thing while learning photography is to receive gentle and supportive critiquing of your images. Our critiquing covers composition, processing tips, prompts for what works well, and suggestions for resolving things that do not.

It is also incredibly helpful to be able to see what others have done with the same assignment that you received. We can also learn to see through the eyes of others.

This course provides both of these learning supports.

ILLUSTRATED PDF TUTORIAL NOTES

In-depth PDF tutorial notes which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of all of our courses. Lectures of all kinds tend to have an effect that lasts only a short while, particularly if notes are not supplied. We believe our handouts are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting.

As part of that philosophy, you will receive detailed notes covering the whole course that will aid learning while on the course, and in the weeks and months afterward.

We send the notes out for each week's class just after the previous one has finished (in other words, the notes for week 2 are sent to you immediately after week 1's class has ended. We do this so that you have something to look forward to each week, and as a way to keep the notes fresh.

For the final week, each student receives the full set of tutorial notes, over 100 pages in total.

Course structure

This length of this course is 7 weeks (dates here), and there is 1 class per week, on the same day, and at the same time. Classes last 90 minutes each, and build to 10.5 hours of total learning.

Class structure

Each class goes like this:

  • Students enter waiting room from 10 minutes before class starts
  • Class opened 5 minutes before start time
  • Q&A on the previous weeks topic (except for first week)
  • Critiquing of the assignment based on that lesson, including the first week (the assignment is sent to you 1 week before the first class)
  • We then discuss the module for that week (course content here)
  • At the end of each class we remind you of the assignments for the following week (which are always based based on the class module)

Live Web LEARNING

This course is delivered through Live Web Learning, where we bring a real classroom right into your home. Our state of the art TV Studio lets us interact with you in real-time. We utilize a High Def 3 camera feed to more easily show critical aspects of the essential techniques that our courses cover. This means we can quickly show you a close up of a camera button, then switch to the computer showing images that illustrate the benefit of that button.

The platform we use for our Live Webinars is from Zoom. Their free app works on all phones and tablets, as well as Apple Mac's and Windows PC's. You can download Zoom for your particular device at this link.

RECORDED CLASSES FOR LATER VIEWING

All of our Live Web Classes are recorded and uploaded to a secure Only registered students have access to the Playlist. The recordings are great for reviewing each class, but also vital for those who missed it. The link for each recording is made available the morning after each class. Please note: it is the tutor who appears in the videos, not the participants; only the voices of the students are in the recording, and individuals are never identified.

RETAKE A CLASS

While you can always watch a class you miss using our recorded classes option, you are still welcome to pick up a missed week on a future course (courses run multiple times per year). This is particularly helpful in courses where photo assignments are handed out. Photo critiques are, by their nature, very personal, so it can be valuable to get that live feedback on your images.

FREE TIPS FOREVER

Participants of this course are welcome to join our exclusive Facebook Group, where students new and old regularly chime in with answers to your photography issues. You will also gain access to our treasure trove of pre-recorded photography hints and tips, many of which cannot be viewed by the general public.

A note ABOUT OUR TEACHING METHODS

First and foremost, we believe there are no stupid questions, just questions about things you do not understand. On our courses, you will never be made to feel silly for seeking answers or clarification, that is what you pay us for.

All of our courses are designed around common photography scenarios, either ones that you regularly find yourself in, or would like to find yourself in. Our teaching methodology is designed to show you how to take better pictures in every one of them. The content of all of our courses is developed to build on the previous week's tips. This approach allows you quickly and confidently to understand how to improve every photo you take.

We teach each of our courses in such a way that the knowledge you pick up every week can be easily spread into other areas of image taking. Photography, at its core, is about shutters, apertures, and ISO, but it is HOW you bring these together for each individual shot that matters.
