Diploma in Digital Photography
- 0 (Registered)
This is the course for you if you want to go beyond the Automatic Mode on your camera and master the art and craft of great digital photography. The Diploma in Digital Photography course begins by introducing you to the history of photography and how the technology behind photography developed during the 19th and 20th centuries right up to the technology behind the latest digital cameras.
The course then explains what each of the buttons on a digital camera does and how these functions can be adjusted. You will learn about the relationship between Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO and how to use them to get your optimum shot. Correct exposure is the key to getting great photographs and modern DSLRs have sophisticated metering systems that can automatically calculate the correct exposure settings for you.
However, there are many situations where you will need to take manual control of the camera and the course explains in detail how these three factors work individually, and how adjusting one means that one (or both) of the others needs to be adjusted also to get the correct exposure.
Advanced concepts such as bracketing, flash photography, hyperfocal distance, focal length and perspective are also clearly explained in a step-by-step manner with the use of visual aids and diagrams.
This course will be of great interest to all learners who would like to go beyond the automatic setting on their camera. Having studied this course you will be more confident in taking control of your camera and using advanced photographic techniques to get the correct exposure for your photographs.
