Digital Photography - The Basics
Interested in digital photography? Get started on the right path with this introductory course on digital photography basics by Matt Vanacoro...
In this digital age, just about everyone and their pets can create digital images. But if you’re interested in creating truly professional-looking and high quality images, you need to understand the basic principles of digital as well as pre-digital photography. Our expert trainer, Matt Vanacoro shows you the way in this introductory course.
He starts by helping you wade through the vast morass of camera types and specifications to choose the best camera for you. Next, since there is no more film or paper involved, you learn about the best ways and formats for storing and managing your digital images.
From there, you “zoom” into the area of Focus modes and systems. Many of the principles you learn here come from the analogue photo world, but are equally applicable in the digital camera realm. The best part, these days, is that many of these functions are often automated for you now!
Next, you explore the three-way interrelationship of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Getting a good understanding of how to balance these three, is the key to being able to take great shots every time!
Matt finishes this introductory course by having a look at some additional equipment like special lenses, filters as well as professional flashes that can really take your photography to the next level! You even get a glimpse into Digital Video; one of the newest offspring of this exciting digital era of photography!
So, whether you’re an amateur photographer in the making or an analogue photo enthusiast looking to get a handle on new developments in the digital field, this course has something for you!
