Hey if you are like me and are just learning about photography, it can all see very confusing. I have no idea about shutter speed and things like that. Well today I found a really interesting and I think informative free online photography course and I thought others might like to check it out as well, especially if you are like me. So here it is..

so has anyone had a look. I read the first lesson all the way thru this morning and found it very interesting and thought provoking.

There was of course the use of the golden rule of thirds, but then there were some other interesting options, like leading lines, triangles, circles and abstract possibilitys for composition. It was fascinating.

Also there were some really helpful ideas about not just seeing a possible photo and clicking, but walking around, thinking about all the options for taking the photo and I found that an inspiring idea as well. When I got to the bottom I saw there was homework to do. That you could post your photos online and send her the link and what of the listed composition suggestions you'd used and why, plus an abstact task. Wow it made me think if I want to do the homework maybe I'd better read it thru again to make sure I got it lol.

I'm excited and grateful to someone who is obviously a professional, that they are willing to use those gifts, talents and knowledge to help people like me just starting out, to be able to take better photos.

I also realised that the link I gave you wasnt the home page and that I couldnt find on that page how to get to the next lesson. so here is the home page link, with the links to all the lessons.

Cheers
Nicki

Wow! That is great! Very generous of the photographer to provide those courses free of charge! There's some excellent stuff there... I might have a go at doing some of them!

Thanks for that, Nicki!

Cheers,
Joe
