|Fundamentals of Photography|
Taking a good picture is a lot harder than it seems. I should know. Even when I try really, really hard to take a semi-decent one, it just turns out terribly. I try to frame it. I try to take into account lighting. I try and make the participants look their best. Yet, it never turns out the way I want it to.
I took a look at this course. Even after the introductory lesson, I already had a better understanding of photography. The gentleman who teaches the series is paid by National Geographic. That's pretty amazing. What he taught in just the first episode was a good photograph needs an interesting subject. It's not that you need a cheetah in your picture, but even when you are just taking pics of the family dog, you need to make it interesting. Great advice.
The course goes on to teach what equipment you do, and do not, need. It talks about lighting. It talks about framing, basically, it talks about everything you need to know.
The nice thing about this course is it is a college level course without the college level commitment. You can take the class whenever you want. Whatever works with your hectic schedule.
