  • This course is best when followed along with the A7RII, so it is best that you have this camera to try the techniques shown in the course.
  • You may need to know some basic photographic terms, such as "shoot," "light," and "video." If you don't, these terms are still covered in the course.

If you have recently purchased or plan to use the Sony A7RII as your primary camera, this is the course for you. Even if you've never used a DSLR before, or are brand new to photography, this course will work to build your understanding of both the camera and general photography from the ground up.

This is a relatively short course – about four and a half hours is all it takes to become a master with this camera. Lectures are 100% easy-to-follow videos, with plenty of clear diagrams that will construct your understanding of the camera dynamically. Topics include understanding the basics of photography and then building up to using the camera, menus, special features, video and Michael's recommendations.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is designed for all competency levels – from complete beginners to industry professionals.
