All of the Essentials of Digital Photography 12-Week Online Course

In this comprehensive photography course, you will learn everything you need to know about Digital Photography, whether you want to do it strictly as a hobby or go into it professionally. An hour or two a week is all it takes to complete it in about 3 months. However, you can do it at your own pace and complete it on your own time scale.

This course includes 12 different modules, each one dealing with a different facet of photography. Each one will include an in-depth study of the material, plus an assignment for you to complete to gauge your progress and understanding, an assessment by me of the completed assignment and a one-on-one meeting to discuss any questions you might have or to talk about any areas where you personally might need or want a little more work.

These modules will be divided into 4 sections and will include the following:


• Cameras Inside and Out

• Lenses and how to choose the best ones for you

• Other Equipment including tripods, bags, other carrying and protective gear, filters, extenders, converters, remote controls, remote viewing, rain and dust sleeves, underwater protective cases, etc.


•Using Auto and Semi-Auto controls

•Going Manual

•Capturing Movement

•Depth of Field and Perfecting Your Focus

Rules of Photography:

• Composition, Framing, Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Looking into the Frame, Highlighting your Subject, and all of the things you need to know in order to compete in contests, competitions or for your clients approval.


People - Learn the skills necessary to shoot people in all environments from Newborn photography to Weddings and everything in between. Whether you want to be better at taking pictures of your own kids or you want to photograph people of any age for income, we will cover it all here.

Places - Do you prefer Landscape, Nature, Travel, Architectural, Night Sky or even underground shooting? When you complete this module, you will be ready and confident enough to go out and skillfully capture it all !

Animals - Whether you just want to get better at taking pictures of your own dog or if you are interested in doing professional pet photography, or maybe you are interested in photographing wildlife in remote areas of the wilderness, we will cover it in this section.

Things - Macro, Food, Product, and a variety of other subjects that do not fit exactly into these other categories are covered in this module.


The final week of this course and after completing all of the modules, you will be given a final exam. If you have any trouble with the exam, we will meet one on one and go over any material that you are struggling with and make sure that you have a comprehensive understanding of the material before we complete the course.

Bonus Section:

Interested in Going Pro or at least earning enough money for some new gear? Would you like recognition for your photography? Would you like to use your photography to do good in the world or to benefit your favorite charity or organization? This bonus section will cover how to get started in any or all of those journeys.

How This Program Works:

Once you RSVP for the workshop, you will be mailed an introduction as well as the first module for the class. You will then take your time and complete the module and do the corresponding assignment.

Once you have emailed the assignment back to me, I will personally go over it in detail, evaluate it, and send my assessment back to you. If you have any issues, questions or need any additional help with any aspect of it, we will schedule a time that works best for you of my available classroom times to go over the material in that session. If you didn't have any questions or issues and are ready to move on to the next module, we can skip the classroom and move on immediately to the next module. It is always up to you to choose if you want to meet in our virtual classroom each time or not.

After you have completed the 12 modules, you will be given a final exam that covers all of the material in the course. Upon successful completion of this exam, you will receive a certificate of recognition that you can proudly display or add to your portfolio. These are available digitally, through the mail or both upon request.

What You Will Need:

All you have to have to complete this course is access to email. You can use any device from a computer, to tablet, to smart phone, to public library.

It is also recommended that you have some sort of camera with manual controls. If you do not have one now, you can either borrow one from a friend or rent one (or maybe several to try them out if you are still deciding which camera to purchase) so that you can physically do each assignment as we go along.

All information will be sent to you digitally. However, you are welcome to print them out for your convenience and so you can reference back to them at any time in the future.

Hard copies of all material can be mailed to you at your request and at an additional charge to cover printing and shipping cost.

What's Next:

After completion of this course, you will be ready to take on the world of photography on a whole new level.

You will also be eligible for some of our more advanced courses that go into in-depth study into specific fields of study.
