Master Core Photographic Principles

These two pictures were taken moments apart in the same lighting conditions (no flash) and using the same camera.  The difference between them simply is the principles and techniques we teach in this course.

Typical Photo

Despite their sophisticated technology, cameras do not see what we see.  Where we see blue water and the details of a face, the camera sees bright sunlight.  And that's all it sees.

Frameable Memory

Simply shooting a picture with your subject off-center can make a big difference, but the angle to the sun to the subject is also important.  Using our principles, you can make every picture a "keeper."

Go Beyond the Basics

Different shapes require different composition.  If you so much as tilt your camera or point it up or down, the rules can change.  This trips up a lot of photographers.  But if you learn how to make the transition, you can reach new heights of artistry.

Spirals and Circles

Spirals and circles can be accentuated when shot correctly, but you have to know the end goal BEFORE you take the picture.


Diagonal subjects are very sensitive to the shape of the picture (the aspect ratio).  An image that looks good in 4x6 may not look good in 8x10.

Complex Shapes

What do you do with this?  It's got lines, squares and angles galore; and we are looking up at it.  We'll teach you how to make the right choices.

Make Choices Like a Pro

The human brain sees depth even when it isn't there.  These images are flat, but in each case your brain sees depth and distance; almost like you can reach into the photo.  We teach you the PRO KEYS to creating depth and generating interest.

Sieze Opportunity

You'll find yourself carrying a camera everywhere you go, because great shots are available around every corner

Get Creative

This picture is flipped around.  It is more a picture of the rock than the bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is a feature that gives the picture depth.

Master Subtle Tricks

We've received a ton of complements through the years on this picture.  The key to its appeal is a very subtle trick.

Enhance Your Pictures the Right Way

You want to enhance the colors in your photos; not change them.  We teach you the RIGHT WAY to enhance colors.

Color Original

This is a picture of turning grape leaves in the fall.  The camera captures all the colors, but they don't look all that impressive.

Bad Adjustment

The saturation adjustment is the go-to adjustment for most photographers (Pros included), but saturation ruins the colors and reduces highlights.

Enhanced Our Way

Using our techniques, the color is more rich, the highlights are retained and the colors don't run together like they do with the saturation adjustment.


Professional Event Photographer

These courses are an amazing resource. Topics that I had only read previously in a photo book are presented clearly and are much easier to understand through the video lessons. I was most impressed by the post-pro coverage on color enhancement; skills that everyone with a camera should learn.
