Below are three beginner instructional videos divided into mini episodes and published on a weekly basis. Each one teaches a different skill, so you can watch ones that interest you.
Natalie Fobes “explores compositional elements that guide a viewer’s eye, including the rule of thirds; leading lines, patterns, and curves; and depth of field.” It also shows “how to work with the natural light in a room or outdoor location, and how to enhance it using reflectors, newspapers, a T-shirt, or whatever might be handy. She also shows some simple indoor lighting setups that can replicate the look of natural light.”
“Learn basics from Joseph Linaschke such as how to hold the camera, what various modes mean and when to use them, and even how and when to use the camera’s flash. There’s also creative instruction to guide you towards becoming a better photographer.”
“Each installment focuses on a photographic shooting scenario, a piece of gear, or a software technique. Each installment concludes with a call to action by Ben Long designed to inspire you to pick up your camera (or your mouse or smartphone) to try the technique for yourself.”
