July 4-6, Creative Live is presenting “Fundamentals of Photography“, a free online course given by John Greengo. Quoting from their web site:
Build A Strong Foundation For Your Photography Practice.
As a photographer, you will need to master the technical basics of the camera and form an understanding of the kind of equipment you need. The Fundamentals of Digital Photography will also teach something even more important (and crucial for success) than the mechanics of digital photography – how to bring your creative vision to fruition.
- How to bring together the elements of manual mode to create an evocative image: shutter speed, aperture, and image composition
- How to choose the right gear, and develop efficient workflow
- How to recognize and take advantage of beautiful natural light
John will teach you to step back from your images and think critically about your motivations, process, and ultimate goals for a digital photography project. You’ll learn to analyze your vision and identify areas for growth. John will also explore the difference between the world seen by the human eye and the world seen by the camera sensor. By forming an awareness of the gap between the two, you will be able to use your equipment to its greatest potential.
