Getting into photography isn’t as easy as simply buying a camera. Yes, that is an essential element, but just because you’ve purchased a new digital camera doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll know how to use it.
Let’s say you bought a new top-of-the-line Canon camera. You may be able to point and click to take photos, of course, but you probably won’t know how to use half of the camera’s features and functions if you’re new to photography. The intricacies of digital photography, the methods, and knowledge needed to truly put your camera to use don’t come with the receipt after all.
Like any artistic discipline, becoming skilled in photography means you’re going to need a teacher, someone who already knows everything you’ve yet to learn. Taking a course with an esteemed professional as the teacher would be the obvious solution, and a good one, though there are some drawbacks. For one, you need to fit the class into your schedule (not the other way around), and the course may not be geared towards your camera’s unique model.
Fortunately, for all aspiring photographers, there is a very simple solution: Henry’s Learning Lab. Henry’s Learning Labs provides a wealth of knowledge on all-things-photography and is available to you at all times.
For anyone who just purchased a Canon camera, you’ll be happy to hear that there is an online course entirely devoted to teaching you everything you need to know about your new photographic device.
Aptly dubbed “Canon: Camera & Technique,” the multi-week course covers literally everything you will need to know about a Canon camera. Beginning with core concepts like lenses, memory storage, then delving into styles of photography (sports, landscape, portrait etc.) and even hosting classes that focus on specific Canon models, there isn’t a topic untouched throughout the course.
Perhaps best of all, though, is the online course allows you to learn everything from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you happen to be. The information provided by industry experts is always at your beck and call, letting you learn at your own pace and on your schedule.
Don’t think Henry’s Learning Lab courses are solely devoted to Canon cameras, though. A similar workshop is geared towards Nikon cameras, and a variety of courses focusing on specific styles of photography can also be accessed with but a click of a mouse.
