Photography Foundation

Understanding the basic set up of your camera and what automatic can do for you.

In the time it takes to make your morning coffee, I guarantee you will finally learn what to do with your camera; even if technology scares you and never been off automatic before.
This course can (and WILL) allow you to create beautiful images that you will cherish - alongside understanding your camera so that you can finally break free from the fear of using your camera incase you might break is and start creating memories with your camera.
Here are just some of the things you get when you decide to invest in The Photography Foundation:
Downloadable workbook to cover every stage of setting up your camera to taking photographs so that you save hours of research time
Video tutorial on how to confidently set up your camera using structured formats used by 1000's of people controlling their camera.
Step by step instructions on key steps that all camera users should know and live by.
The Photography Foundation is for those that simply need a refresher or if you are a brand new photographer. If you are looking to really understand your camera from beginner up then we would recommend looking at our Online Complete Photography Experience course instead.


The Photography Foundation is for absolute beginners and consists of 3 different modules ranging from absolutely easy peasy tips, to setting up your camera and understanding Automatic. This might be something you have dabbled with before, but you may be looking for more official learning and guidance.

  1. Introduction & Preparing your Camera
  2. Getting started and set up with your camera
  3. Understanding Automatic
  4. Basic Automatic Creative Modes
  5. Advancing away from Automatic
  6. Program Mode
  7. ISO and White Balance

* Please note this is part of our bigger course "The On-line Complete Photography Experience" and is the same first 3 modules from that course.
