These lessons cover what to do before you ever pull your camera out of the bag. It's about scouting and connecting with the scene you're going to photograph. I'll cover my creative approach to framing up scenes and then talk about how to set up your editing software before you start actually processing images.



I'll delve into the variables that affect exposure in these lessons. We'll master using aperture, shutter speed and ISO more creatively. I will also cover the basics of RAW processing your images.

From tripods and filters to camera bodies and lenses, we'll talk about using your equipment to capture the best quality images possible. In post production  I'll walk you through sharpening, noise reduction and correcting poor exposures.



This chapter is all where we put all the lessons from the first three chapters together to actually craft better images in a variety of circumstances like landscapes, portraits and action. I'll also walk you through some of my own start to finish photo editing.
