Trying to learn the fundamentals of digital photography can be frustrating. Using Aperture Priority or Full Manual takes time and practice to get comfortable. There are a lot of beginner photography courses out there but most of them move too quickly, or are too basic or advanced. None give you the hands-on experience that you need to feel comfortable and confident with your camera.

In this introduction to the beginner photography course, we will cover how to get the most out of our hands-on exercises, live photography class lectures and camera functions.
Released July 2017 - We've noticed that some people learn from this course better than others. Here is a very short primer on how to get the very most out of this beginner photography course. Thank you for joining us :)
In this introductory section in this beginner photography class, we cover the main advantages of using a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera versus using a regular point and shoot or even a mobile phone. Throughout the rest of this photography course we will cover each benefit in detail.
In this chapter we focus on different components of the camera. We go through this first in the live photography class then a more in depth and closer examination at the end. Pay close attention to the discussion of aperture in the lens during both the live recording of the beginner photography class and also at the end.
A personal ask from Learn Photography Company!
This is one of the critical chapters of our Beginner Photography Course. We begin to cover the fundamentals of photography that you will need whether you are a beginner photographer or a professional. We begin using Aperture Priority and change our aperture throughout the session. The big idea of this chapter is your ability to change the aperture of the lens.
At the end of the chapter we have created a section for new photographers that covers how to change aperture as well as ISO.
In this chapter of the Beginner Photography Course, we take our understanding of changing aperture priority and relate it to shutter speed - the second fundamental of photography. Watch the entire video all the way through and test your skills and knowledge with our hands-on exercise at home.
This is probably the most fun section of the entire Beginner Photography Course. Here we cover how aperture affects your depth of field, or how blurry objects not in focus are. Watch the entire video before we give you a home based exercise to try your hand at manipulating depth of field.
This is one of the harder elements for new beginner photographers to grasp. If you have problems with this, post your questions to the Q&A.
Now that you have some experience photographing in Aperture Priority and manipulating both shutter speed and depth of field, it’s now time to control your focus. In this part of the beginner photography course, we show you how to focus exactly on your subject. Watch the end of the session for specific instruction on changing the focus points on a Canon and a Nikon.
After covering aperture priority we will now delve into the world of shutter speed priority before going to full manual. Keep in mind that we encourage our Learn Photography students to leave either shooting in Aperture Priority of the upcoming full manual after this lesson. Stay tuned till the end of this photography lesson to see at home exercises.
Now that we have covered Aperture Priority in some detail, we will move onto manual exposure for the next module. If you choose to learn either Aperture Priority of Manual, you will be leaping as a beginner into the exciting world of photography. Enjoy the next section and remember to try not to get frustrated - remember that photography is supposed to be fun, not frustrating.
ISO is the third component that we need to cover in our beginner photography class. Similar to ASA in the film days, ISO is the sensor sensitivity of the camera. In this module we will be finding about when and how to change our ISO settings and also the tradeoffs for doing so.
Photographs too blue or orange? Learn how to control the tone of your pictures through this hands on section covering white balance. After this photography section add warm or cool tones to your photographs and set the mood.
One of the most important sections in this beginner photography course is choosing and selecting the right lens for the photograph. Here we cover distortion of a wide angle together with compression of a telephoto lens. We cover specific and practical examples using both in this photography class.
The technical part of the course is now complete! Congratulations!!! We now give you some creative exercises. If you truly want to learn photography - please give these exercises a try. We put all our photography students through these exercises in our hands-on class because we know it reinforces the learning. Rule of thirds is incredibly important so don’t miss it!
Learn how to take a mediocre street scene and create a photograph that will also a lifetime. Hands-on exercise with practical examples at the end of this photography section.
Leading Lines are a fantastic tool to improve your creative photography. Stay tuned till the end and get lots of practical and creative examples.
One final creative exercise in our beginner photography course. Remember the more you use your camera, the more comfortable you will be with it. Thanks again for joining us!!!
Thanks SO MUCH for joining us! We really appreciate you choosing Learn Photography Company and taking our Beginner Photography Course :). See here for some notes about how to keep your photography going.
Photography is an expensive hobby and as you get further into it we always want new equipment. The problem is that photography equipment is expensive. Buying used photography equipment and lenses is one way to make your dollar go farther.
Here are some tips on what to look for when buying used photography lenses.
We have recorded this at the request of one of our photography students.
In this beginner photography course, we cover a lot of information about the photography lenses. However - some lenses have extra features and buttons that can be confusing that we don’t cover in the basic course.
In this lecture we unscramble photography lens jargon and go through some of the most common nomenclature and features found on modern day lenses.
You may have noticed in this beginner photography class that I do a lot of travel photography. One of the keys to doing this is to make sure you have the right gear and pack lightly. I’m able to put a full frame DSLR and 3 prime (one focal length) lenses in one over the shoulder pack.
My students here love this trick and I’m happy to share how I pack my photography bag with you.
