|Level 1: Beginner
I just purchased or am planning to purchase a digital camera.I need help deciding what to buy. I want to learn how to expose and compose pictures properly.I don’t understand the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, so I only use my camera when everything is
set on automatic. The only flash I use is the fl ash that came with my camera. I want to make good photographs, but I’m not really sure where to begin.
|Level 2: Intermediate
I know how to operate my camera.I know how to control depth of field and how to vary my shutter speed and aperture in manual mode. I have taken a few good pictures in the past, but I can’t seem to make them on a consistent basis.I have several filters, but I’m not using them effectively. I use off camera fl ash but am confused as to how to control the light levels with my fl ash. I have started working with people as subjects, but need more help on posing. I know about post-production editing and use software to edit my images however I would like to learn more. I could use some help in improving my compositions, and I’m not sure how to take
advantage of good lighting conditions.
Level 3: Advanced
I know how to use filters creatively to give me the eff ect I am looking for. I can easily choose various combinations of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to achieve my desired outcome. I can consistently make strong images under varying lighting conditions.
I want to learn more about advanced lighting techniques and post-production. However, I am in a bit of a rut, and am looking for some new ideas to take my photography to the next level.
