What You Will Learn On Your Holistic Photography Essentials Course

We believe that great photography is the ‘expression of an artistic vision with technical competence’.

Therefore, we focus on both the techniques and meaning within four main areas. This blend of Craft and Art is Holistic Photography; the philosophy of Learning to See.

The Holistic Photography Quartet

  1. Idea

    What inspires your photography? We will identify your unique vision and motivation, and enhance it by learning about relevant cultural frameworks.

  2. Light

    What it is; colour, strength, character. You’ll learn how to capture it with your camera. Creative use of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO Sensitivity. How to use custom White Balance creatively.

  3. Composition

    How to express your thoughts and feelings in your photographs. Depth of Field and Selective Focus. We cover the artistic heritage of aesthetics; the Rule of Thirds, the Golden Mean and more.

  4. Timing

    When to take the best picture; the Decisive Moment. How to capture movement, including Panning and techniques to freeze moments in time.
