Great photography goes beyond knowing about how lenses and f-stops work. It's about creative problem solving under real- world conditions. By exploring and practicing the same techniques professional photographers use to solve visual problems, you can take your photography to a whole new level. Now, in this vibrant and vital continuation of Fundamentals of Photography, improve your ability to optimize picture-perfect moments and capture jaw-dropping images. These 24 lectures add new skills to your repertoire and expand upon the skills you already know. It's your chance to rejoin National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore for an even deeper dive into the secrets of powerful photography, as he shows you how to apply your hard-learned technical knowledge to take amazing photographs in the real world. You'll cover advanced topics like: professional shooting techniques; night photography and time exposures; working with studio lighting setups - and taking those setups outdoors; specialty filters; shooting over and under water; and more. You'll also explore a variety of fascinating photographic challenges in the field, and you'll spend some time in the studio for an insider's look at how photographers go through the editing process. Each lecture drops you into a different scenario and lets you shoot alongside a master of the craft as he approaches situations, identifies and overcomes various challenges, and produces engaging, breathtaking photography from seemingly simple events and subjects.
