Course Details

Learn how to take beautiful digital photographs and refine them with Adobe Photoshop in this free online diploma course.

Modern digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs) have sophisticated metering systems that automatically calculate the correct exposure settings for each photo. However, there are many situations that make you take manual control of your camera. This course teaches you how to command your camera’s ‘mode’ dial and use its shutter speed, aperture and ‘sensitivity to light’ setting (ISO) to get the perfect shot. We examine the most important types of light and white balance (WB) and discuss lens structure, prime lenses and how to properly clean them.

The course uses demonstrations and visual aids to explain advanced concepts like bracketing, flash photography, hyperfocal distance and focal length. We delve into perspective and lay out the key features of ‘matrix’, ‘center-weighted’ and ‘spot’ metering. We then break down the process of resolving distractions or blemishes with Adobe Photoshop and show you how ‘bracketing’ can improve the photograph’s overall exposure.

This course suits anyone who would like to go beyond the automatic settings of their camera to employ advanced photographic techniques. We can help you to feel more confident snapping shots and this course may represent a stepping stone to a new career doing something you love. Digital photography draws on cutting-edge technology to tell visual stories and is a vibrant modern artform, a growing industry and a rewarding hobby - depending on how you use it. So sign up to earn a useful diploma and make the most of the future as it unfolds.
