Become a Better Photographer - Part 1

Take Amazing Photos on Any Camera: DSLR, Mirrorless, Compact & More

By Adobe Systems | in Online Courses

Just as a master violinist can coax beautiful music from a cheap violin, so too can an expert photographer capture gorgeous shots on a dinky point-and-shoot. Learn the art of making do with what you have, whether your standard smartphone, a Polaroid camera, or a high-end DSLR. Ensure your subjects look good no matter their surroundings, frame and compose your images to great effect, control depth of field, and much more. Because as you'll soon see for yourself: the camera doesn't make the photo, but rather the photographer.
  • Improve your photography skills w/ 5.5 hours of premium instruction
  • Work with camera settings: configure your ISO setting, use your histogram, etc.
  • Compose your images: use the rule of thirds & repeating patterns, frame your images, and more
  • Capture perfectly posed portraits, take pictures of landscapes, etc.
  • Utilize flash to effectively illuminate your subjects
  • Learn other handy techniques: take pictures of fireworks, make your portrait subjects' legs look longer, etc.
  • Pick from different camera types & work w/ different levels of image quality
Bernie Raffe is a working photographer based in Bedfordshire UK, and has been passionate about photography ever since his parents bought him his first camera when he was just 11 years old.

Kenneth Schultz set up a blog on digital photography in December 2010 and helped hundreds of new DSLR buyers with his e-book, Digital SLR Buyer's Guide. After many questions from new DSLR buyers, Ken realized that a Basic DSLR course was needed to fill the gaps in photography knowledge required to take great photos with a DSLR. After 8 months of production, EasyDSLR was launched (September 2011). Ken's "in the trenches" background gives him a unique perspective, enabling him to explain photographic principles in simple terms. For more details on the course and instructor, click here.
