Helping you take better pictures
We are immersed in a multi-media world, and pictures are a constant part of it. Many of us pick up the camera (or the phone) to participate, document the moment and create memories, only to be slightly disappointed with the results. Modern cameras are extraordinary, however they don’t work any magic. They are just a tool.
For the most part, photography has rules that you can follow to get great results. And you can learn those rules in very little time, and put them to practice almost immediately.
Don’t get me wrong: photography is an extremely complex form of art. However every artist must start from somewhere, and those rules are a good starting point.
Today you are learning. Tomorrow you might be exhibiting.
I love sharing my knowledge and learn from others as well. I have created two introductory lectures for beginners on photography and digital editing.
DSLR Photography for Digital Beginners
This lecture is specifically designed for beginners in digital photography. Aided by a well illustrated set of slides and hands on equipment, this 3hrs lecture guides the students from learning how cameras work and operate, through the details of aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and their creative application for better photographs. With Q/A sessions interleaved through the lecture, students can easily keep the pace and follow the material through the end.
This class has prompted great feedback by well diversified adult classrooms and is my best selling option for libraries and clubs that want to offer an inspiring introduction to digital photography to their patrons.
Digital Photography Workflow
This 3hr lecture is specifically designed to introduce and familiarize beginner photographers with the tools and techniques to properly apply a full digital photography workflow. Besides the projection of a set of slides, students are shown the capabilities and properties of two leading software products in digital photography: Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Optionally, a full hands-on exercise is available, which extends the lecture by 2 hrs, in which case it is suggested to split the lecture in two parts.
Private lessons for individuals and small groups (1-5) are offered on topics ranging from digital photography, to lighting techniques, to digital workflow and retouching. Also available, remote tutoring via video-conference.
At its second edition, DSLR Photography for Beginners packs all the information taught in my lecture in just about 200 pages, making it a very good companion for beginner digital photographers. Besides all the content of the homonymous lecture, the book offers additional content that guides the reader through composition examples and tips for better pictures. Available on Amazon, Google Play and other platforms.
