This is not a course on how to use your camera or how to shoot in manual mode.
Our study of photography focuses on Light and Composition; two elements that all photographers must understand regardless what camera is being used.
All of these photography lessons and assignments are centered on seeing or manipulating light and creating proper composition techniques. As a result, every lesson can be completed using the camera's auto-mode.
These six lessons will make anyone a better photographer - starting from the first lesson!
You will be teaching your students how to create amazing photos by combining interesting light with engaging composition.
If you are not a great photographer, don't worry!
The Teacher's Guide gives extended explanations so you understand how light and composition are used to make better photos.
This 10-page easy-to-follow Teacher's Guide is your personal how-to for getting the most out of each lesson.
As a natural supplement to the photography lesson plans, you get three photography study guides for added clarity to each lesson.
These photography study guides will help your students gain a better understanding of proper lighting and composition techniques.
Additionally, your students will come to understand how their camera works and the kinds of photos their camera is capable of producing. This will lead your students into taking photos that are best suited for their camera resulting in consistently better photographs.
Night Photography Study Guide - Cameras are light eaters! Feeding your camera more light will result in sharper, crisper, brighter and more colorful photos. However, take away all of that light and all cameras begin to struggle.
The Night Photography Study Guide will show you how your camera affects your photos when you take photos in low light. And of course we'll show you what you can do to overcome not just low light but bad light as well.
Exploring Light Study Guide - It all comes down to light. There are varieties of light just as there are varieties of fruits and vegetables. Light comes in different colors and in different intensities. Light comes from different directions or only one direction or from every direction.
