Online Photography Course
This section has an ongoing photography course available for free. The photography course is organized and divided into lesson Plans. Each lesson plan is designed to present a set of information about photography that will get the 'student' on their way to taking good quality photos. A lesson plan would comprise of a few progressive articles aimed at providing just enough information that will allow the 'student' to understand a concept or two at a time.
As the 'student' progresses through the lesson plans, a new and slightly more advanced photography concept(s) is taught and so on and so forth. Similar to a classroom environment, most of the articles will be followed by practical exercises that will help the 'student' gain more understanding of the topic by providing assignments that will have them use their camera in the field.
For the more 'experienced' photographers who know or have an idea of what they are looking for, this site will also organize the related articles into categories. The Camera Gear category will contains articles related to photography hardware (i.e. the camera, flash, tripod, etc). The Camera Functions category contains articles that relate to the functions and features of a digital camera. Examples would be aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, white balance, and features like aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, etc. And last but not least, the Concepts & Techniques category will contain articles that pertain to the artistic side of photography. How do I compose a photo? How much lighting do I need? These are just some of the questions that will be answered by articles in this section.
19MayToday, I took a couple of panning shots while I was eating out with my family. I stepped outside and took photos of cars passing by the road. I put my camera on Shutter Priority Mode and set it at 1/60 sec.
Panning is a technique where you can focus on a moving object and blur the background to give the effect of movement and speed. The technique is to pan your camara and follow your moving subject so that it will be relatively focused while the background is blurred. You need to set you shutter speed at slow speed to blur the background.
