Photo Basics

This course will help camera owners to deal with camera buttons, leave the “AUTO” mode in the past and learn how to shoot in difficult lighting conditions. And those who do not have a camera yet, will give the necessary criteria for the informed choice of a tool.
In our experience, 6 people out of 10 will not read the instructions for the camera. It takes a lot of time, and so little. Moreover, the instructions do not ask a question if something is not clear. And 7 people out of 10 – just delete photos that did not work out and will not look for the reasons for the “failure”. After all, a memory card holds gigabytes of pictures. Easier to reshot in automatic mode. But then the camera makes decisions for the photographer. And about any creativity, in such circumstances, we are no longer talking.
The course “Fundamentals of Photography” teaches you to shoot consciously. This is when the person who shoots can explain why the photo looks like it looks. When the photographer has an argument for each action: he opened the diaphragm, raised the ISO, added one degree of exposure correction, switched to manual mode. When you understand why you press a specific button or change the settings, you are the master of the situation. You control the camera, not the camera – you.
Since 2000, the course “Fundamentals of Photography” has been completed by 12,000 people from Ukraine and another 13 countries of the world. As graduates of a photo course, they received a training manual – a 70-page pdf-publication with materials on the topics studied. For 18 years of practice, teachers at CSF have left only the necessary information and poured “water”. E-book secures the material covered at home; this is a directory with interactive links.
After passing this photocourse, you will no longer be afraid of your camera. Shoot in different lighting conditions, build the composition of the frame, select the desired lens, put simple studio lighting schemes and experiment with the depth of field will be able to!
