A beginner's guide to the technical aspects of photography.

The course covers everything you need to get started, and good principles to set you up for life.

There's a particular focus on all the aspects of exposure, as it underpins so much of photography technique, but the course also covers:

  • Camera Types
  • Lenses
  • Focusing and depth of field
  • File formats and workflow
  • Colour temperature and white balance
  • Resolution and megapixels
  • The basics of flash
  • Release modes
  • Fundamentals of equipment

Each section is explained through the use of videos, with lots of detail and close-ups where required. There are are regular quizzes to test your knowledge and ensure you're paying attention, and lots of helpful imagery and illustrations to explain complicated technical issues.

Hi, I'm Tom, or "Photosmudger" as some have come to know me! I've got more than 20 years experience in professional photography, I've shot more than 100 magazine covers, have photographed all over the world for a host of commercial clients and magazines, and I've lectured at dozens of universities in the UK on behalf of Nikon and Calumet. You can see the sort of work I shoot at www.tmphoto.co.uk

Photography has been my passion since I was 15 years old, and I'm keen to ignite that passion in other people. My courses focus on practical matters that can make a big difference to your learning, but I'm not afraid to get stuck into more esoteric topics like creativity.
