It takes more than a camera to be a good photographer. But with today's smart technology and training, it's easier than ever to learn how to take great pictures. This course, designed strictly for beginners, provides for a solid foundation in the skills and tools you'll need to explore the world of digital photography.

The theory behind exposure is also introduced: controlling the amount of light that reaches the camera's sensor.


Then, it's time to take to the field and examine the rest of the factors that influence the quality of your photographs, including light metering, focus, composition, and flash. We also introduce techniques for shooting portraits and shows what you can do with an image editor in post.
