Basic Photography - Foundation Concepts


Did you start out shooting with a digital camera and never had the time to learn about the basic concepts of photography? Exposure, understanding your basic camera controls, lens choice, camera placement and understanding the fundamentals of natural light light are just some of the concepts that will be discussed here.


The CAMERA Video Series
Originally recorded for attendees of The Mindful Eye's 2010 Weekend photography workshops, this is an excellent video series for gaining a better understanding of your digital camera's most important settings and controls. The two "Understanding Exposure" videos in this series can help photographers of all skill levels to gain a clearer understanding of the workings of your in-camera meter and can dramatically help to demystify the histogram - your digital camera's most important tool when it comes to getting the perfect exposure for each shot.
