Photography course - 📸 Course 4 : Light and focus


The photographer's reading of light is a key notion that allows for choices in terms of results; it enables the photographer to express his or her creativity in the same way as depth of field and shutter speed. Different modes of light measurement are available on digital cameras (matrix, spot or center-weighted modes) and this course offers you the opportunity to master them.

Focus (auto and manual) will also be on the agenda of this course. You will learn how to quickly and accurately "focus" on your subject, using the so-called collimators, as well as the different autofocus modes.

In short, this course will teach you how to:

  • Measure light using the different spot, matrix or center-weighted modes
  • How to take successful backlight photos
  • Focusing wisely using the different collimators and AF modes
  • Work on your framing from the moment you take the shot

During this course, which is held by videoconference, small practical exercises are of course planned. In this respect, please make sure that you have your device loaded and equipped with an empty image memory card. Your trainer will establish the practice according to the environment of the house / apartment.
