Course Description

In this photography video course you will learn the fundamentals of correct exposure with the Exposure Triangle. Getting familiar with the Histogram Tool will let you analyse your camera's meter readings during the photoshoot and in the post production stage. The course is aimed at anyone who wants to start their creative adventure by setting a solid foundation based on understanding exposure's principles.

The course covers fixing a correct exposure with the help of the Exposure Triangle and gives you understanding of the exposure's three variables: ISO, shutter speed and aperture. It is designed to teach you to comprehend the relationship between the camera's  exposure settings and the Histogram Tool. We will look at severals examples of Histograms related to photos shot in different lighting conditions. You will learn how to intuitively analyse Histogram's data and how to use it to improve your exposures.
