Harvard's complete photography course is now available for free online

The school where Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates cut their teeth has uploaded the entirety of its photography course to ALISON – one of the many repositories of online learning courses. The course consists of twelve modules that cover the fundamentals of photography – from software tools to composition and light. There’s also a thirteenth module which serves as an assessment of all you know. If you pass this with a score of 80 percent or higher, and you can get yourself a diploma to print and hang on your wall.

There is a caveat though: The course itself is from 2009, and while the fundamentals are still true, some of the lessons on software tools aren’t exactly current. Via Konbini.

Quelques conseils pour réussir vos photos !

Voici les recommandations de la vidéo : Respecter la règle des tiers. Imaginez votre photo comme si elle était divisée en 9 parties. Et essayez de placer les élément importants sur ces lignes ou à leurs intersections.Guidez le regard du spectateur à travers l’image grâce aux lignes directrices (horizontales et verticales).Privilégiez les lignes diagonales qui donnent davantage de dynamique à votre photo.Utilisez des cadres naturels comme les fenêtres ou les portes. Cela facilitera votre composition.Donnez du contraste entre votre sujet et l’arrière-plan.Soyez près de votre sujet.

Digital Photography

Topics include lenses and optics, light and sensors, optical effects in nature, perspective and depth of field, sampling and noise, the camera as a computing platform, image processing and editing, and computational photography. We will also survey the history of photography, look at the work of famous photographers, and talk about composing strong photographs. This course is based on CS 178 (Digital Photography), which I taught at Stanford from 2009 through 2014. I revised and taught the course again at Google in Spring of 2016, and these web pages are from the Google version. The course consists of 18 lectures. I am making these materials freely available, but some of the photographs included in the lectures are individually copyrighted. The course assumes no prior knowledge of photography. Taking photographs and improving your picture-taking skills are a good reason for taking this course.

The best aerial photos from the Drone Photography Contest 2016

On the one hand they’re used as military surveillance, on the other they’re a fun toy bought for spoiled kids who crash it after a week and move on to the next tech trend. Somewhere in between those extremes, drones are quickly becoming modern photography’s next frontier. For the third year running the annual Dronestagram International Drone Photography Contest has proven that drones have moved on from a niche novelty to a tool for photographers to send their cameras sky-high – turning drones into a serious form of photography in its own right. Supported by National Geographic, the international competition awards the most jaw-dropping, innovative aerial shots from all over the world. Professional photographers to amateur enthusiasts alike from around the globe have submitted more than 6,000 pictures, but judges had to whittle down the entrants to a lucky few winners over three categories: Travel, Nature Wildlife, and Sports Adventure.
