Photography is easy, when you know how…
Hands up, who wants to learn how to finally take great photos, but can’t stand reading from a computer screen?
Well, let me share a short story with you, the story of when I knew photography was for me (I get the feeling a lot of you will relate to this).
I had finished up my education with a completely unrelated qualification (that’s a story for another time), and although I enjoyed what I did, I was drawn towards photography.
Trouble was though, with no time/money to go back into education, I had no choice but to study photography the hard way.
On my own, teaching myself.
I used a couple books, my camera manual, my camera (very important), Google, and a lot of hard work.
It’s safe to say that it took a few years before I was happy with my photos, but I persevered, and when I did, this happened…
One day, after a few trips out with my camera, I realised that good photography was no longer a fluke anymore. In fact, it seemed to just come naturally.
I no longer thought about my camera settings, or basic composition.
It just came naturally. That felt AWESOME.
Totally awesome. Such a boost in confidence, my photography went from strength to strength, and I’ve never looked back.
I had learned everything I needed to know, to start taking great photos on a regular basis.
BUT. It was a long time coming. I wish it could have been shorter.
And that’s why I wanted to make it easier for you, with my Video Training Course.
My video training course covers the basis of everything I’ve learned about photography – All my years of hard work, condensed into 25 awesome videos, totally over 3 hours in length.
I’m very proud of what I’ve created, and it’s 100% risk-free. Lets check it out…
My course is all about providing you with the exact knowledge that you will need to go out and start taking better photos.
Here’s a rundown of everything you’ll learn…
Section 1 – Exposure:
- What aperture is, how it’s controlled, what it affects, when we would use certain apertures, and the f/stop scale.
- How to take great photos in low light.
- What ‘shutter speed’ is, how it’s measured, when to use certain speeds, motion blur and freezing, and bulb mode.
- Creative uses of shutter speeds.
- What ISO is, how it’s measured, when to use certain ISO’s, digital noise, and how to counteract digital noise.
- How aperture, shutter speed, and ISO work together.
- The ‘stop’ scale.
- How to prioritise different aspects of your exposure.
- How to read (and use) your exposure compensation meter.
- How to create a perfectly exposed photo.
Section 2 – Your Camera:
- Metering modes – What they are and why we use them!
- When to use different metering modes, and how important it is to get right.
- Histograms – What they are, how to read them, and why they’re important.
- Shooting modes – Which modes you should ignore, and then manual mode, priority modes, program modes, which mode you should use and when, and exposure compensation.
- Focus modes – when you should use each mode and why, fixes for focus problems, hyperfocal distance, where to focus, and manual focus.
- Depth of field – how it’s controlled, along with the relation to aperture, focal length, and distance from subject.
- When to use certain DoF’s, and creative uses for different DoF’s.
- White balance and color casts – how to find the perfect white balance, fixing it in post, and understanding color temperature.
- Focal length – why it’s measured in mm, different uses for different focal length ranges, and its relationship with perspective.
- Crop factor – what it is, and why it’s relevant to you. How it changes your focal length, and lens choices.
- Polarizing filters – how to remove reflections, glare, and haze, while evening out the exposure.
- How to take professionally sharp photos – using and avoiding light, how to choose the best aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and how to make the most from your focus.
Section 3 – Composition:
- Rule of thirds – how to add depth and interest to a photo, why it’s so popular, and more.
- Visual weight – learn how to influence your viewers, so that they look where you want them to look. Grab your viewer’s attention, and keep it!
- Eye-Lines – direct the viewer’s attention again, create other compositional tools with these lines, and portray a variety of emotions.
- Balance – create a pleasing and harmonious photo, or an uncomfortable and unresolved photo.
- How to use symmetry, and evoke certain feelings, as well as how visual weight and placement pays its part.
- Single point – the most misused compositional tool! How to make a boring photo more interesting.
- Triangles – tie the frame together, to evoke a certain feeling.
Section 4 – The Next Step:
- Lens buying guide, so that you make the right purchases.
- How to start making money from photography.
- Valuable advice for your first photography job.
