Free Canon Camera Training




5161B006AA_-_CanonEOS_1100D__18-55_IS_II_Lens_KitThe free training course offered by Canon SA and Vega School is a basic introduction to photography with Canon DSLR cameras. It covers things like lens choice and the impact that has on depth of field and angle of view. It covers photography basics like aperture, shutter speed and ISO and then goes into detail about the usage of the mode dial, metering patterns and picture styles.

The course is a lot more than just a reading out of the manual and will hopefully give you the grounding you need to further explore photography. Please note that it is aimed at beginners, but even intermediate users may gain some insight.

As Canon has partnered with Vega School on this project, we fully endorse not only this course, but also the entire range of courses offered by them.

About the Author:

Sean has been shooting since schooldays (started with a borrowed Pentax K1000 from His sister, also a photographer) but only became seriously involved with photography when he returned from living in Eastern Europe. While overseas he did shoot some non-profit editorial work and also made the big switch from Nikon to Canon. Today, Sean likes to shoot Stock. "Stock is the 'best of both worlds' industry, that requires creativity and very set guidelines to be successful..." Sean also teaches photography (basic, advanced & other Stock-related courses) and frequently arrange "shooting days" for photography clubs and individual groups.

      Hi Nicolette,

      You would have to check with Canon South Africa, they might be able to assist you. Canon SA – 012 675 4900.
      If Canon SA cannot help you we would recommend Photowise. Although it is not free it surely is value for money. http://photowise.co.za
