Description

I created this course to save you the time and money I wasted looking for straightforward answers to simple questions about photography.  I wanted to understand my DSLR, know how to use natural light, and take amazing photos.  That is exactly what this course will teach you...and more. 

Whether you know absolutely nothing about photography or have been shooting for awhile, this course will give you the information, tips, and skills you need to take your photography to the next level.

Something unique about this course: You get to see how to adjust settings on your specific level of Nikon or Canon DSLR camera!

Camera Camp is a systematic series of short videos that build on each other.  At the end of the course you will literally have all the knowledge and skills you need to get out there and start taking beautiful photos.  To ensure you understand the content, I created short quizzes and photo challenges for you. 

What you will learn:

  • Understand the main components of your DSLR and how they work together

  • Master shooting in Manual Mode

  • Learn how to adjust settings on your level of Canon or Nikon DSLR

  • How to avoid grainy pixelated images

  • Use composition to create visually strong images

  • Learn how to get perfect colors in your images

  • Understand your camera's light meter to get a perfect exposure in every photo

  • Go on location to see the settings you need in a real life situation

What camera should you use?

Nikon or Canon DSLR cameras will have specific videos that show how to adjust the settings for each level of brand.  However, all the knowledge and principles are true to any camera and will give you the foundation you need to understand a camera and take great photos.  If you aren't using a Nikon or Canon DSLR I recommend you have your camera manual for the few videos where you need to adjust settings. 

What have students said about the course?

"Camera Camp has boosted my confidence as a photographer. It has given me a solid foundation. I absolutely recommend Camera Camp to anyone with a DSLR, whether you are just beginning or have been shooting for years."

- Christi

I have loved shooting with the full frame camera you recommended and have seen an improvement, but I know the result of better photos is attributed to Camera Camp. I have learned so much and can’t thank you enough for creating this site! It was a fun way to learn and has made photography much more enjoyable.

-Lance

I was given a nice DSLR as a gift which was incredible, but also daunting because I had no idea how to use it. For years just I hoped to get lucky by guessing what worked and shooting on AUTO. Camera Camp has given me the skills I need to feel confident. Justin is a great teacher and I love the way the videos are set up.
