Fall (back) in love with photography

Do you want to take better pictures but don’t know where to start? Or have you been photographing for a while, but the results are hit and miss? Photography Essentials is the course that will help you consistently get great images.

We’ll first look at the “big picture” to familiarize you with what makes up a photograph: exposure, composition, and storytelling. Next, we’ll break down the whole into pieces so you understand what each does. Then we’ll put them back together again so you know how to work each piece.

All you need is a digital camera with full manual mode. No post-processing skills necessary.
