Learn how to use your digital SLR cameraTraining in Photography Skills

Many of us own a digital camera – maybe it was a last minute purchase in the excitement of an upcoming vacation, or an attempt at taking professional quality photos at a relative’s wedding. The reality is that DSLR cameras are capable of getting much higher quality pictures than a lot people will ever achieve. An e-learning course provides a much clearer, much more in-depth understanding of available techniques and adjustments. Learn how to use aperture priority, shutter priority, ISO, exposure, lenses and much more. With courses in photography learners will gain skills in metering, white balance, or autofocus point.

Training programs are also available based on the specific type of camera or equipment being used. Find a course for shooting with a specific model by Cannon, Nikon or others and learn how to get the most out of the camera’s capabilities with a learning solution geared specifically at the camera you own.

Lighting and Flash

Anyone who has ever taken a photo can tell – lighting makes all the difference. All training courses in photography fundamentals will contain a section outlining basic lighting concepts. Many photography training companies also offer courses specific to the different uses of lighting and creating the right effect for photo.

Topics for the uses of lighting in photography include:

  • natural light and window light
  • studio lighting
  • lighting with an overhead umbrella and ring
  • layering effects
  • using strobes

Photography editing software

Retouching photos is an important skill for both professional photographers and other professionals working with images as part of their overall responsibilities. The right retouches can completely change the feel and redefine the purpose of an image.  Find a course in Adobe Photoshop, Camera Raw, Bridge, Aperture, or others. Training in photographic editing software is often organized by level of experience, moving from beginner to advanced.

Photoshop CC

Adobe Photoshop is a highly versatile tool used for editing and combining photographic images. With the right training in Photoshop there’s very little left standing in the way of a successful career in graphic design. While all Photoshop courses are organized slightly differently, they cover similar concepts, including:

  • Rendering
  • Formatting
  • Plugins and special effects
  • Tools: cropping, slicing, moving, lasso, etc.
  • Web design

Now that the image is created, how do you use it?

Learn web design and images. An image is only useful in so far as it’s properly implemented. Find a course in web design or multimedia and learn how to integrate the image into circulation on various platforms. You made it - now get it out there!
