What You Will Learn
An introduction to camera functions
Your own unique photography style
- Postproduction and editing process
- Photography as a form of communication
In the days of Smartphones, Instagram and filters it sometimes feels like we are all professional photographers. While this day-to-day documentation of our lives is important and the average person already has a lot of experience taking pictures, there is always another level and a way to improve.
Photography can be an incredibly fun hobby as well as a challenging yet rewarding career choice. Although we all spend a lot of time taking pictures, there is so much to learn about how to take, edit and distribute those photographs. High School is a great time to start learning some of the more advanced techniques that can enable you to take some incredible images.
Pro-tip: Understanding these advance techniques can also help you better utilize the funtionality in your smartphone camera;
- Depth of field control
- Lock focus with AE/AF
- Adjust the ISO for better, grain-free, low light pics
- Control the shutter speed
While you can certainly take good pictures without some of this knowledge, getting these things down will give you greater consistency, range and a higher ‘ceiling’ for your pictures. Click here to read more
