1. What is Photography?
This first lesson explores photographic styles and how they are used as forms of communication. This lesson also explains the process of capturing and recording. Understanding the concept of exposure, is essential to your ability to capture the scene, the way you see it. Finally we take look at the various types of cameras currently available and why you would use one over the other.
2. Camera Functions and Lenses
In lesson 2, we will look at the common functions that appear on most cameras and demystify their use. Understanding these functions will expand your creative control and open up new possibilities for your images. We also explore the most frequently used lenses and when and where they are used.
3. Motion and Depth
Controlling and manipulating motion and depth in your images will allow you to add drama and sophistication to your images. Whether you want to freeze an athlete in action or blur the background of a portrait, controlling motion and depth will expand your capabilities and allow you to explore new subjects.
Composition refers to the placement and relationship of elements within a picture. The arrangement of elements in a scene, the angle they are shot at, and the distance the photo is taken from, can completely change the final outcome of your photograph. Understanding how to explore all of the compositional possibilities of the scene will greatly improve your ability to capture the best photographs.
5. How Much Light is enough?
To fully understand how much light, you need to capture for a scene, you need a way of measuring how much light is there. Lesson 5 looks at the light meter and discusses how it can be used to understand your exposure, even before you have taken the picture and is essential to moving into Full Manual mode.

The marriage of shutter and aperture in manual mode gives you the most creative control offered to you by the camera.

This gives you an insight into the file formats available on your camera which equips you with the knowledge to select the highest quality file format and image size that best suits your purpose.
