    Program for photography course for beginners takes you a full circle. From the first theoretical concepts, getting familiar with photography technics and genre to practical exercises and finally, after post-processing, you will have a finished product ready to be published or printed.

    Photography Course Module One

    First, we find a common photography knowledge ground and lay down a good photography foundation.

    We start with some basic guidelines of how to buy and work with photography equipment. You get recommendations for software and apps if you use mobile phones.

    We lay groundwork on which all photography is built - exposure triangle - and learn everything that there is to know about aperture, ISO and shutter speed.

    Photography Topics We Cover In First Course Module:

    I.1            tips and trick for buying photography gear
    I.1.a         practicalities and limitations of mobile devices for photography
    I.1.b         practicalities and limitations of compact cameras for photography
    I.1.c         practicalities and limitations of lens exchange systems (mirrorless and DSLR) for photography
    I.1.d        additional photography related gear

    I.2           exposure triangle
    I.2.a        all about exposure time and its effects on the final photograph (rules for focal length, …)
    I.2.b        all about ISO and its effects on the final photograph (grain, dynamic range, sharpness, )
    I.2.c        all about aperture and its effects on the final photograph (depth of field, diffraction, vignette, …)

    I.3          semi-automatic and manual camera modes
    I.3.a       aperture priority program
    I.3.b       shutter speed priority program
    I.3.c       manual exposure program

    I.4         practical exercises

    I.5         in-person lecture with the instructor

    In the second module we build upon knowledge from the first module.

    We upgrade our knowledge of exposure triangle with ways to evaluate correct exposure and to influence camera choices in semi-automatic modes. We also add to our photography arsenal other settings that greatly affect final photographs.

    We take a dive into the world of focusing. We also practice different scenarios and ways to achieve sharp images and for really brave ones - take a look at how to check if our camera autofocus needs some adjustments.

    Finally, we take a small step into the world of photography composition - a giant leap in the quality and satisfaction your photographs will give you.

    Photography Topics We Cover In Second Course Module:

    II.1           influence your camera exposure
    II.1.a        other automatic exposure programs
    II.1.b        exposure compensation
    II.1.c        white balance (temperature and tint)

    II.2          ways to achieve sharp photographs
    II.2.a       AF-S
    II.2.b       AF-C
    II.2.c       hybrid and "smart" autofocus systems

    II.3.e       geometrical composition - diagonals

    I.4         practical exercises

    I.5         in-person lecture with the instructor

    It's time to put theory into practice. In a big way!

    In module three you get your very own photography assignment. With the brief and everything. Just like the pros do.

    III.3.a      what do you want to tell with your photograph
    III.3.b      who is the viewer / where will the photo be published
    III.3.c      develop your "photographer's eye" / previsualize your photographs

    III.4         submit your assignment into the review and personalized pointers/tips

    III.5         in-person lecture with the instructor

    In the last module of photography course for beginners, we finish with a core component of photography - post-production.

    We disperse potential prejudices, and find out there is (almost) nothing new in digital postproduction in comparison to "the old times". It just got MUCH EASIER and wildly available.

    We go through good practices for post-production and get familiar with the editing program of choice. My recommendation is Capture One, but you can use anything you wish.

    Photography Topics We Cover In Fourth Course Module:

    IV.1          postproduction in "good old times"
    IV.1.a       analogue dark room
    IV.1.b       examples of composites, retouching, …

    IV.2          digital darkroom
    IV.2.a       a key part of modern photography
    IV.2.b       JPG vs.RAW
    IV.2.c       colour space (sRGB, AdobeRGB …)
    IV.2.d       good, bad and ugly

    IV.3          editing software
    IV.3.a       DAM (Digital Asset Management)
    IV.3.b       RAW developers

    Travel photographer with 10+ years of experiences with (travel) photography.

    Winner of PNA 2019 and published in numerous international publications, for example Compétence Photo, Fisheye magazine, Profession Photographe, Avantura, Svet&Ljudje ...

    Teaching what I have learned through years as professional photographer is my passion.

    Travel photography is arguably the most diverse photography genre. It borrows techniques from all other fields and then you elevate the difficulty with storytelling aspect of travel photography itself.
