Being new to the world of digital photography, and after I bought my Sony A6000, I immediately started looking for webinars in order to learn how to shoot in manual mode.
Below you will find some suggestions which I believe that can cover all the basic knwoledge needed for a newby to start with photography:
- Photography: Ditch Auto - Start Shooting in Manual
This is a free Udemy webinar that covers most of the basic stuff needed. I haven’t watched the whole set of videos, but only a selection (mainly covering the basics of exposure) and I can’t express an accurate opinion. However, it’s almost the only free webinar online and this is the reason it’s included in this list.
- Photography Masterclass: Your Complete Guide to Photography
This is another Udemy webinar. It’s current cost is 12€. It was the first webinar I started and I went up to chapter 7. It covers most of the basics, it’s very easy but the reason I did not continue was that it didn’t go as deep as I wanted. However I believe that it’s the best of this list for someone that has no idea on what digital photography means.
- Phlearn - Photography 101
This is by far the best webinar I have found so far. They offer two payment options: one monthly (14.95$/month) and a one time purchase (94.99$). The instructor, named Aaron Nace is a purely talented guy that has the ability to teach from the easiest to the most complex subject in a way that everyone understands. I haven’t finished with it yet, but I am currently in the last sections.
In conclusion, if you can afford the money and have a slight idea (in order to enjoy it even more) on what digital photography is, you should definately try Phlearn.
