To have a better understanding of photography, I decided to enroll for beginner photography classes at Shaw Academy. They’re currently offering a Free Photography Course, and it’s one of the free online photography courses with certificates.
As most of you are aware, I recently purchased a Nikon D7000. One thing that can help boost anyone’s mood is having a good hobby, and photography is one of mine.
In these past months, I was able to take photos of cosplayers, portraits of my family and friends, and street art. To gain self-confidence and get an idea of how subjects feel while being photographed, I even took a shot at modeling for the camera myself.
However, I haven’t been able to really study photography in my own time. I mostly just point and shoot, having basic knowledge of the settings in manual mode.
This course, which includes live webinars where you can ask questions to the speakers in real time, will definitely give me a direction in learning more about the functions and settings of my camera and how to use them.
The course includes the following lessons:
- Lesson 1: What is Photography?
- Lesson 2: Demystifying Camera Functions
- Lesson 3: Capturing the Light
- Lesson 4: Motion and Depth
- Lesson 5: Composition
- Lesson 6: Advanced Composition
- Lesson 7: How Much Light is Enough?
- Lesson 8: Manual Mode – The Relationship Between Shutter Speed and Aperture
- Lesson 9: The Color of Light: White Balance
- Lesson 10: The Digital Image
I hope I can attend all the live lessons, so I can have more photos to share on my photoblog. I’ll also try to post about some of the things I’ll be learning along the way.
The registration is free for a limited time (23 hours left right now), so I wanted to share it with you all right away. If you’re starting out in photography and want to have interactive photography lessons for free, you can join me! Click here.
