Photography FAQ

Will the classes work for me if I don’t use a Canon camera?

Yes! We have a lot of users who shoot with Nikon, Canon, Sony and many other makes and models. The only requirement is that your camera has the ability to shoot manually. You may have to refer to your users manual to locate your ISO and Aperture settings (because they’re in different places on all cameras) but once you know where yours are located, everything else is the same. The goal is for you to understand how your camera works so you can make your pictures brighter or darker, change your depth of field, or do whatever you want! We’ll walk you through everything on video so you can see exactly what we’re doing!

Can I view the classes on my iPad?

Yes! All of our videos are hosted on Vimeo and are compatible with iPads and iPhones. If you are having trouble viewing the classes on your portable device, you may have to update your software to the latest version. Check out the welcome video to Photography 101 below to make sure you can view the classes.

How long will I have access to the classes?

Once you have purchased a class, you will have access to it forever! Your subscription will never expire so you can come back and review the classes as many times as you want, for as long as you want.

What is a DSLR camera?

DSLR refers to the type of camera you have. DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex. Single Lens Reflex is a device in the camera, that allows the photographer to actually see through the lens using a small mirror to reflect the image back to the eye. What you see is what you get! When you take a picture, the small reflective mirror pops up out of the way and allows light to pass through to the sensor. Digital cameras have a sensor instead of the film used in regular SLR cameras.
