01. Introduction & How cameras work

Cameras, No matter how much they cost or what brand they are they all work in roughly the same way. Understanding the simple mechanics of how cameras work will help you realize just how similar they are and how you can get the best possible results out of yours. Right from digital compact cameras to high resolution studio cameras Karl explains how they work and what the different parts and setting on the camera actually do!

  1. First i read ur basic introduction nd reference Guide carefully nd understand essential 6 requirements of Photography… nd thn this first Lacture of urs sir ….

  2. Hi karl … as i m confused to choose either mark 3 or mark 4 …
    Frankly speaking only photography is main concern for me for next 2 year …
    Give me idea to choose 3 or 4

    1. Hi Reetesh, the Mark 3 will do everything that you need, I use this camera and it is an excellent camera. Yes the mark 4 will have a few extra features and slightly better resolution but nothing that is going to make a huge difference to your photography. The difference saved would be better spent on good lenses.

  3. hi karl.
    I have bought a couple of your courses in the past and gotta say I loved them. photography has always been a passion of mine and I am forever learning. I now intend going for it in a big way and will be paying serious attention to all your stuff.

  7. Hey karl, been watching you and a few others on youtube for a little while. I just got back from a 10 day holiday/photo shoot in Northern Territory, Australia, look forward to going through the full course so on my future travels I get an even better result in my photos

  8. Hi Karl, I just joined last night. Really enjoy your classes and tutorials on YouTube, so looking forward to getting lots out of your training. 👍📷😎

    1. Cheers Todd, you won’t be disappointed, there is far more professional level content here than on our social media, plus our live shows and other member benefits

  9. Hi Karl, I have been looking at different pro photographers sites for awhile, and when I found yours I knew I found gold. Joined today and excited to learn from you. Thank you for your expertise and teaching methods.

  10. Karl, thank you for your videos. I’ve been learning through practice and taking shots but I am working on my technical skills to improve my images so I’m going back to the basics through your courses. Loved being able to see the mechanics of the camera in this first video – normally I try and keep my lenses or caps on at all times without exploring inside so I don’t get dust on the sensor.

    1. Hi May, yes that makes sense but sometimes they do need a clean so don’t be afraid if they do. We have a video showing how to do it. Also yes it’s a good idea to start at the beginning even if it’s just to recap it can be useful. I hope you enjoy working your way through and do join us on some of the live shows too, everyone seems to find them very entertaining! All the best Karl.

  11. Hey Karl,
    I have a Nikon D-40 and really need to get the studio lighting figured out. I’ve tried using my current camera in the small home studio I have and I seem to be missing the mark, I am hopeful I can learn from you. Thanks!

    1. Hi Brian, Work through the courses in order and get the basics of exposure, apertures, shutter speeds (time) and ISO sorted out first, then in ‘Travel & Landscape’ and others in the Advanced section your understanding will grow. When you are ready jump into the first 15 chapters in ‘Portrait’ section which cover lighting in depth.

  12. Hi Karl, just joined this morning! I have been looking through your stuff and I am just completely AMAZED! I can’t wait to learn everything you have to teach. Thank You!
