Fundamentals of Photography Course on DVD
Photographs are more than just snapshots. When taken the right way, they become dramatic personal statements with the power to last forever. They can transport you to distant landscapes, capture fleeting emotions, recall cherished memories, reveal the beauty of daily life, and even change the world.

With recent developments in technology, we now take and share photographs almost instantaneously through online photo albums and social media -- making this unique form of personal expression more central to our lives than ever before.

But when many of us take photographs, we simply point our cameras and click without being aware of what we're doing, what we're seeing, or how we can do it better. In reality, taking great photographs requires you to "see" as a professional photographer does; to train your eyes using the same fundamental techniques and principles the experts use to create unforgettable images from the grandest (and simplest) of subjects.

Whether you take photos as a hobby or for a living, whether you're shooting indoors or outdoors, whether you're using a simple digital camera or the latest high-tech lenses, understanding how to use the power of your camera's settings; how to create or capture the right lighting and angles; how to handle difficult situations such as poor lighting or fast-moving subjects; and how to research and plan for the perfect photo shoot can lead you to start taking more dynamic photographs -- ones that truly capture everything you see and feel about a particular moment in time.

With Fundamentals of Photography, you'll learn everything you need to know about the art and craft of great photography straight from a professional photographer with more than 30 years of experience. Designed for people at all levels, these 24 lectures are an engaging guide to how photographs work and how to make them work better for you. National Geographic contributing photographer Joel Sartore has crafted a course that will hone your photographer's eye so you can capture the greatest moments in nearly every situation and setting imaginable, from a field of flowers to a friend's birthday party to a grand mountain range. Taking you both inside the photographer's studio and out into the field, this course is a chance to learn, in a way anyone can grasp, the basic insights and hidden secrets of photography.

Fundamentals of Photography Course on DVD, Vol. 2
Take your digital photography to the next level with the guidance of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore. Building on his original Fundamentals of Photography course, these twenty-four lectures show you how to develop a photographer's eye as you solve problems in the field. You'll see new techniques and concepts demonstrated in various locations indoors and out and get advice on how to practice these exercises on your home turf.

Then you'll have an opportunity to consolidate what you've learned as you accompany Sartore to five live-event shoots where he puts every tool from the toolkit into practice. In critiques throughout the course you'll learn how to evaluate your work, making it possible to build on what you have learned each time you pick up your camera. Whether you are an advanced beginner or a seasoned photographer, you'll find something new to try.
