The days where those hoping to get into photography had to splash out on an expensive camera and equipment are over. These days, cameras are cheaper and more powerful than ever before, and you probably have a smartphone nearby with a surprisingly effective camera if you want to try before you buy. But if you want to go professional in the world of photography, you’re still going to need to learn the basics.

The Photography Basics course allows you to learn the fundamentals of the craft in as little as 45 minutes. You first learn about how your camera actually works, before moving onto how you can expose your photo properly. After that, you learn about the rudimentary camera settings and composition and finish the course with a short unit on composing better images. The technical terms included in these later sections, such as aperture, white balance and exposure triangle, may sound off-putting to begin with, but in no time at all you will have a good knowledge of what they mean and how you can use them to your advantage when taking pictures.

With well-structured lessons that will appeal to newcomers and experienced pros alike, Photography Basics really is the perfect course to choose if you enjoy taking photos and you’re looking to improve your skills.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain relevant knowledge of the tools and techniques of photography.
  • Learn about the various camera functions, from shutter speed concepts to autofocus, in order to improve your pictures.

  • Learn what the various jargon used in photography means and how you should use it to take better pictures.
  • Develop your passion for photography, with a look at turning this into viable employment

Method of Assessment:
