Photography basics - how to use your camera: ISO speed, aperture, shutter speed, focal length etc.

In this course, I'll teach you the things you need to get started with photography. I'll guide you through the technical basics of how a digital camera works vs analogue, explain notions such as ISO speed, aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, focal length. This will make you understand the device you're working with, and enable greater control over how your photographs turn out. Additionally, you are going to learn the basics of photo post-production using Adobe Lightroom, which is the most intuitive and easy-to-use app for retouching and cataloging your photographic archive.

Throughout this course, I'll be more than happy to help you, provide guidance and answer any questions you may have in relation to photography.

Photography and visual communication for advanced beginners
Photography is a very powerful vehicle, visually and emotionally. In order not to disturb what is important in the image, it is necessary to choose the framing and the colors wisely. Even if it means retouching, reframing afterwards, there is first of all what we want to say and the reflection on the moment, quick and efficient to know. You should not stimulate the eye by too much information, and master the technique. In this, knowing the basics and rudiments for a very effective shot is important.
