Digital Photography - Level 3

Recorded Course | 12 Hours | 7 Modules | 45 Lessons | $180 (€150, £135)

About This Course

This course is aimed at learners looking to try different photography disciplines. No previous camera experience is required, and much of the course can be taken using Program Mode. By the end, you will be using Aperture Priority in a very creative way.

The beauty of this course is that you do not need a wide range of skills to get great results, you can be a complete beginner or someone with more photography experience. Each Module prepares you for that particular photography discipline by only discussing the camera techniques needed for that specific topic.

At the end of the course, you will have an in-depth understanding of how the creative process works and how to put it into effect in all your photos. You will also be able to accelerate your learning in photography by test out all these great photography disciplines to see which ones suit you.

Six Different Photography Disciplines

Six completely separate photography topics are the exciting bedrock of this course. These range from Macro to Landscape, HDR to Dusk, Painting With Light At Night to Street Photography.

What kind of student takes this course?

This course is aimed at those who really want to push the limits of their photography, and do so very quickly.

The ideal student for this course is looking to gently ease themselves into using some key techniques and buttons that will help them improve all of their outdoor photographs. This course assumes that you have been attempting Program and Aperture Priority Modes, but not necessarily understanding why some effects work, and some do not. Our goal will be to connect the dots by showing you some simple, yet key techniques.

What past experience is needed?

Most students of this course will have only been using Auto or Program Mode up to this point. You might have been testing out Aperture Priority Mode with mixed success. The course does not require any prior knowledge of cameras or computers, and does not go into advanced modes such as Manual Mode.

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).

The course is also suitable for Bridge Cameras and high end Compact/Point & Shoot Cameras, as long as they have Aperture Priority Mode (A or Av).

All you will need to do after this great course, is get out and shoot!

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 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.
