Today's cameras put an amazing amount of power in the hands of amateur photographers, but it's not always easy to make use of it. All those buttons, dials, and settings can be pretty intimidating. In this workshop, expert photographer Joseph Linaschke helps you understand what's going on inside your camera, explaining fundamentals like what an aperture is and how shutter speed works. Learn basics such as how to hold the camera, what various modes mean and when to use them, and even how and when to use the camera's flash. There's also creative instruction to guide you towards becoming a better photographer. As you become more comfortable with your gear, you'll find that many new creative possibilities open up for you and the quality of your photography improves.
There are three basic concepts that I want you to keep in your mind, when you're out shooting. Perspective, angle, and detail. These are three ideas that will improve your photography dramatically. And what we're going to do today, over the next few videos, is explore these three ideas in detail. Now as you can see, we're going to be shooting in a garden that's, well, frankly, not that interesting. There's some nice details out here, but we're going to have to look for them. So by using these three ideas of perspective, angle, and detail, we're going to find some really interesting photographs out here in this otherwise pretty ordinary garden.
