What Makes a Great Photo?

The modern photographer has myriad tools to choose from: new cameras and upgraded accessories are hitting the market every month. But how important are they? Does gear make a photo great? Learn how today’s photographers choose their tools sparingly but wisely to protect their wallet without compromising their work.

A Mirror Between Worlds

While a camera is important when it comes to capturing a photo, it won’t make creative decisions for you. Learn to enhance what is unique about you and the way you see the world.

Business vs. Passion

Ever consider leaving your job and making a career out of photography? Learn best practices and possible pratfalls from professionals who’ve made the transition.

Developing a Style

How do you make your photos stand out from the pack? What are the techniques that will preserve your distinct style while elevating the final product? Learn how to develop your vision and create work that bears your own artistic signature.

How Light is Measured

Understanding light is key to creating authoritative work. Become acquainted with the F-Stop–which is the unit for measuring light–and see how measuring and wielding light can refine the beauty of your images.

Understanding the Histogram

A critical yet often-ignored part of photography, the histogram displays the light and color information in the photo. Master this simple yet essential concept, and say goodbye to over-exposed images!

There is no “Correct Exposure.”

Sometimes it is ok for a picture to be “too bright” or “too dark.” Learn the rules so you can break them. Creativity is rewarded in photography, so push the boundaries of your images!

Shutter Speed, Aperture & ISO

Since light varies drastically from one location to the next, adaptability is one of the most important skills of the photographer. Luckily it’s not just guesswork. We’ll teach you how to use shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to get the perfect exposure for any environment.

The Physical Camera

Modern digital cameras are loaded with buttons, dials, knobs and other features. Photography 101 covers the physical camera in depth, revealing helpful tips along the way to give you more power when shooting.

Compare Sensor Sizes

Not all cameras are created equal. Learn the difference between camera types including Film, Smart Phones, Point & Shoots, Entry-level DSLRs, Pro-level DSLRs, Mirrorless, and Medium Format cameras.

Menus, Options & Preferences

There are hundreds of options and preferences in a modern camera. How can you adapt a camera to work best for you? Learn to master every feature a modern camera has to offer.

Image Quality

Download and compare images from a range of cameras from smartphones to medium format digital backs. See for yourself the differences between camera types and how they affect image quality.

Auto Mode

Auto mode is a great place to start. In Auto Mode, the camera chooses the best settings for you, allowing you to focus on the subject. In this tutorial, we explore the pros and cons of shooting in Auto Mode.

Aperture Priority

In Aperture Priority Mode (Av, A), you are responsible for choosing the aperture, and the camera takes care of the rest of the settings to create a proper exposure. Learn when to use Aperture Priority to get the most out of your images.

Shutter Speed Priority

In Shutter Speed Priority (Tv, S), you choose the shutter speed, and the camera selects both ISO and Aperture to create a properly exposed image. We cover a variety of circumstances where Shutter Speed Priority excels.

Manual Mode

In Manual Mode, you are responsible for choosing the proper camera settings to create a good exposure. While this mode requires a bit of knowledge to use correctly, it provides more control over the camera than any other mode.

Explore Focal Lengths

Come along with the Phlearn Team as we explore lenses with a range of focal lengths. Each focal length has different applications, in this tutorial, we cover Macro, Wide, Standard, Telephoto and Super-Telephoto lenses in depth.

Kit vs. Pro Lenses

Will you notice a difference when moving from an economical ‘kit’ lens to a higher priced ‘pro’ lens? Explore the advantages and disadvantages of both and download images photographed with both entry-level and pro-level lenses.

What Lens Should I Use?

In this tutorial, we explore a broad range of lenses and cameras using downloadable images. By examining images shot with focal lengths varying from 16mm-300mm, and apertures from f/1.2-f/22, you’ll be able to see the effect each lens has on its target and learn to choose the right lens for the job.

Buying Advice

Which lenses are necessary, and which are luxury? When is it better to rent than to buy? We’ll show you how to make smart decisions and stay within your budget while getting the most out of the today’s products.

Manual vs. Auto Focus

Most modern lenses offer the choice to shoot in Manual or Automatic Focus. While Auto Focus is more commonly used, Manual Focus boasts unique opportunities to gain more control over your work. We’ll explore which focus mode to use and when it’s best to use them.

Learn Focus Techniques

Focusing on a still subject is relatively straightforward, but what happens when the subject moves? Learn techniques to help you achieve proper focus in a variety of situations including both camera and subject movement.

Depth of Field

Depth of Field effects how much of an image is in focus. Many factors influence DoF, including aperture, focal length, distance, and sensor size. Learn how to utilize Depth of Field to draw more attention to your subject.

Focus Stacking

Certain applications require extending the Depth of Field beyond the physical capabilities of a lens. Learn how to use photography + Photoshop to focus stack images and increase the focus area of a picture.

Smartphone to Medium Format

It’s a shoot-out! Watch as the iPhone 7 Plus, Hasselblad 500 C/M Film Camera, a Point-and-Shoot Canon G11, an entry-level Canon 6Ti, a Pro-level Canon 5Dmkiii, a Mirrorless Sony A7rii, and a Medium Format Phase One IQ350 compete side-by-side. We’ll keep the setting and natural light consistent from one camera to the next to give you the most accurate look at their capabilities.

Download and Compare Images

There is no such thing as the ‘Best Camera”. Different cameras are great in different situations. This tutorial includes full-resolution RAW images available for download so you can compare each side-by-side.

Camera Breakdown

Our camera analysis goes beyond shooting with each camera type. We also examine each camera in depth and break down different qualities including Low Light Performance, Ease of Use, Cost, Customizability, Interchangeable Lenses, Control over Camera & Image Quality.

Image Quality

At the end of the day, the most important quality of a camera is the image quality. Compare quality between many different formats and manufacturers to help you choose the best camera for you.

Extended Content

Behind every image you see, there’s a batch of rejects. A less-mentioned but equally critical component of photography is being selective of your own work. Get a glimpse into the process of whittling down hundreds of photos into a refined, representative showcase.

    I have paid for an online photography school and found it was a waste of money. I learned more on You tube! However that was also limited. I am finally getting the information I need. Even though I have been shooting and getting booked I decided to take the Photography 101 course anyway. OMG I knew I didn’t know a lot but this confirmed I knew nothing! I am soooo addicted to this course and so excited to look at every course on this site. Every chance I get I am on this website. Thank you for creating this website it is truly legit!

    I loved this whole tutorial from the beginning to the very end. And for the very first time I finally had a revelation on techniques and meanings I always struggled with and couldn t find anyone able to explain everything properly in details and as a whole. Aaron you are the most talented (and hilarious!!!) photographer and teacher (you have a natural inclination for this!). THANK YOU! – do you have a full serie dedicated to lighting as well? Especially for studio photography. That would be super interesting!

    As a dyslexic, trying to learn something new has not been easy, as most of it is in text form. Finding phlearn a few years ago has been life-changing for me. There are so many videos on youtube, but it does not compare to having a structure; someone who loves to teach, teaching you. Thank you so much for these videos

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’m obsessed with Phlearn! I have been self-teaching myself photography for a few months now and although there is a lot of information online it just doesn’t compare to what phlearn has to offer. Everything that Aaron teaches makes sense, so easy to understand and it is actually incredibly inspiring. I just want to be shooting and phlearning all day long! Thank you for this incredible information, I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!!!

    Epic tutorial, I’m a proffessional photographer for many years, but i saw this anyway (with some skipping) and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested or already is in photography. p.s.: Jamie has a very sexy voice 🙂

    Thanks Aaron and team for taking us behind the scene with the Neon project. AMAZING stuffy.

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love what Aaron is saying about gear. It really is not about the gear, it is the person who is taking the images. Sure, a PhaseOne would be amazing to shoot with, but heck, who has money for that. My favorite quote by Aaron “you can take amazing images with a phone, and you can take crappy images with a full-frame camera.”

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    Wow, I can only do 5 stars, I’d put up a galaxy if I could. The information and presentation are incredible. I learned more from this series than any other I have seen. I never really used the balance of ISO, aperture and shutter speed the way Aaron explained it. I also never knew that a lot of lenses have a “sweet spot” in their focal length. What a difference! It opened a whole new way of looking at things. I’m already losing sleep over the wait for Photography 201-301! Thank you so much!

    This is easily one of the BEST photography courses I’ve ever seen in real life or online! It’s amazing how personable Aaron is and it’s very clear that he really enjoys teaching this material! One of the things that I find really interesting is the additional tidbits of shooting information and the live shoots that PHLEARN has put into this course. I think that new and experienced photographers alike can easily pick up something from this lively and extremely interesting course on photography!

    This has been very eye opening and has allowed me to really take my photographic creativity to the next level. I bought a camera 2 years ago, but I’ve only been using the automatic options provided because I just couldn’t get interested enough in the manual settings etc. But watching this tutorial has made me realise how much more I can do with my camera when I know how to adjust it. What helped me in particular was the explanations and examples on aperture, shutter speed and iso. …Now on to the next section!

    Just bought the tutorial, already on chapter 3. watching this with my wife and oldest daughter, both of which have an interest in photography, but never seem to understand what I am trying to teach them. They really like all the examples and seeing the different setting and the images they produce. one thing Aaron, you should take that graphic you made that shows the apertures, shutter speeds and ISO’s and have that made onto the back of a gray or white card, say one of those soft foldable ones and sell that on your store… I would buy one for each camera bag, it’s a great visual reference!

    Yes!! I’ve been hoping for so long that you guys would do a comprehensive tutorial for photography. Love this, and i hope there’s more to come. I also love how accessible your pro tutorials are now with the new subscription methods. Keep up the good work, Phlearn. You just keep getting better!

    Rockstar idea! Thank you for making it. I’m not a photographer but I am always trying to hire good ones. It sounds easy because there are so many in the world, but here in Hawaii…hmmm…how to say this nicely…. Let’s just say that reviewing the basics regularly is invaluable and the BEST place from which to launch innovative ideas. I’m trying to think of a way to start buying Photography 101 as a gift for photographers without it coming across as, “You suck! Start over!” I’m sure I’ll figure that out, but in the meantime, if someone were to say to me, “Everything I’ve learned, I’ve Phlearned,” I’d respond, “You’re Hired!”

    Incredible! You can tell that so much work, effort, and thought went into making this one of the best photography classes online.
