When you just get started with a camera in your hand, things might look difficult - and we totally understand that. We also understand that you might want to convert this passion of clicking a million images into a real business. But before we start thinking about the business, we need to learn the basics of this field in real life.

Photography is a field that would take some time and effort to master. But once you do that, it will motivate you to create more and more. If you are new to this creative field, it is alright not to know everything. No one knows it all from the start - not even the ones you would learn from. The creators we have here - who will teach photography have mastered this art over a long period of time and effort.

While you might be able to learn photography in a traditional college, it won't really be from those who have mastered their art by practicing it more and more - and even made a name for themselves around the world. In this digital age, with our shop, the creators who have achieved success in real life - in the field of photography - are the ones teaching it. So, you are literally learning from the masters!

Why should I take a digital photography course?

Learning photography online is a lot different than learning it from a school. There are several reasons why you should be taking a digital photography course instead of the regular course at a school. The first - and the most important reason - would be to learn on your own schedule. A digital course will allow you to learn photography skills from anywhere in the world in your own time.

The second major advantage of any online photography class is the free online photography courses offered by various sites. We also offer one free segment from the majority of the photography courses for free. This will help you determine if the course is right for you - before you make the purchase.

Also, you will get unlimited lifetime access to online courses. You can use this unlimited access to go through the videos again at any time - if you don't remember something correctly. Not only that, but with the online photography classes, you can choose between a wide variety of lessons. Some will teach you the basics of camera settings or camera lenses, while some others will dive more into the manual mode settings - like the Aperture, ISO, Shutter Speed, and other exposure settings.

To add to all that, you can select a specific field you want to master and get a course for that. If you want to learn about iPhone photography, you can have a course for that. If you want to learn more about car photography, there is a course for that. And we even have courses that will guide you on how you could work with brands and even earn a decent living out of that.

How can we learn in online photography classes?

The learning process for all online photography lessons will be different than the traditional ones. With the online courses, you will need to create your own schedule and commit to the learning part of the course. The first - and the most basic step - would be to stop procrastinating and get started with the course.

Once you start watching the course, you will need to practice those learnings in real life. Anything you learn from a course will need to be practiced. If you watch through the entire course without practicing it, you might as well feel the need to get back to the course to remember something.

If you don't practice photography, you won't be able to master it. Whether you are learning photography basics or shooting for a brand, you will need to practice everything in real-life scenarios. Also, with those practice shoots, you will make mistakes - but you will also get better because you will learn different photography techniques.

Practice will allow you to develop your own unique style with advanced techniques. And this is the only way you will be able to move from aspiring photographers to inspiring photographers. And soon, if you keep pushing your limits and try different things, you will also enter the field of the most advanced photographers - who will be able to teach others as well.

What are the different levels of photography courses you offer?

We know that everyone who wants to take a course will not be on the same skill level. This is why we offer courses on different levels - so that everyone can learn what they need. Let's see the different skill levels we offer for these courses in our shop.

Level 1: Beginner

Sometimes, you might need to start from as basic as understanding a new camera body and learning about digital cameras - and we understand that. This is what the beginner photography classes are meant to do. Every beginner photographer will be able to take a beginner photography course - to learn the photography basics.

With this level of courses, you will be able to start clicking beautiful photos by the time you complete them. It doesn't matter if you are going in street photography or macro photography - a beginner photography class will always help you nail the basics of the field.

While some people would ignore the basics, these basics are what help you achieve unique shots. And learning more about them with in-depth information - will always help you in the future. Once you get used to the basics, you will be able to experiment more with hands-on projects as the basics will always be there at the back of your mind.

Level 2: Intermediate

Once you learn the basic camera settings, you will expand your creative side here with the intermediate level of courses. Not only will you be able to expand your artistic expression, but you will also learn more about the technical aspects of the business in this field.

Also, with this level, you can learn more about the post-processing aspect of photography - and using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to achieve stellar results. Most beginner photographers don't consider post-processing at all. But it is an important aspect that will help you delivered better pictures.

With these photography lessons, you will get great tips on using natural light to benefit while also using different compositional techniques to achieve the best image possible.

Level 3: Rising

This is the highest level of online photography courses that we offer - and we have named it Rising. The courses in this level are specifically made for the rising photographers who already know about compositional techniques and leading lines - alongside all the different camera settings.

When you already know everything about the photography techniques and camera settings, you need to learn about the styling of a photo. By creating a unique style of photo, you are making that particular style resonate with your identity. Clicking better photographs is ultimately the result of having a unique style in the field of photography.
