Over 3000 photo enthusiasts are already there and they say:

Quite easily and relaxed Jenny and Sebastian explain the basics of photography in their beautiful and clearly structured photography course. No matter if you have already mastered the techniques of photography or just started this hobby, here is something for everyone.

Through the easy-written chapters and the great explanations in the videos, the course can work great, without losing the desire to learn. The course motivates and is just fun, so you really do not want to put the camera out of your hands. - Stephan and Tanja.

I did not think that especially the technical basics of photography can be so interesting and above all, it is also written correctly understandable for beginners. I'm excited! - Rainer

Thank you thank you thank you! Because of my ambition to understand my complicated Nikon full-frame camera, in the last 3 years I have taken 7 (!!!) courses of different content from different providers and could only classify 2 of them as scientifically profitable.

Now we practice and then immediately tackle the next topic. You know how to rekindle my enthusiasm, and I can not say enough thanks for that! You can feel the lifeblood and the work that you have put into it and immediately feel like putting the aha effect into practice.

Conclusion: Extremely recommendable for beginners, but also advanced. - Gabi

The course is really great. So far I have always been an "automatic clippers". I have tried again and again to use the other modes and rolled various books. But in the end I did not feel like it anymore, because everything was too dry and somehow too far away.

Here it is really super easy explained and accompanied by the videos still nice. You can read and hear everything again by the way. That makes the whole thing much easier and more interesting. - Stefan

Your course is really great. Before that, I spent a long time looking at how to improve my photos. A friend recommended me a Youtube channel, but I did not know where to start. I just could not get on. Only through your photo course I have really licked blood.

The structure is totally good and thoughtful. The course is very comprehensive and focuses on the essentials. The perfect mix. I have only now noticed, what a great device I've been operating since almost two years in automatic mode.

Also, I think Lightroom is very good. Before your course, I did not want to know anything about image editing. But it always depends on how you use it. So again a big thank you for this course! He gave me a lot of joy. - Julia

Frequently asked questions about our online photography course

  • Is the online photo course something for me?

    Our photography course is right for you:

    • if you still feel comfortable in automatic mode so far.
    • if you can not really start with terms like aperture, ISO and shutter speed.
    • but even if you already know about how aperture, ISO and shutter speed work, but you feel anything but safe with it.
    • If you want to learn more than just the technical basics and you want to improve yourself in other areas, such as image design and image editing.
    • if you feel like doing a lot of practice, where you can apply your learned knowledge directly.
    • if you do not fancy complicated instructions and dry textbooks.
    • if you want to get to know your camera better.
    • if you just want to enjoy photography because it's one of the most beautiful hobbies in the world.

    Our photography course is NOT right for you

    • if you operate your camera without batting an eyelash in manual mode.
    • if you prefer to invest 2,000 euros in a professional SLR camera to photograph in automatic mode.
    • If you already know all the basics of photography inside out and are looking for specialized knowledge for professional photography.
    • if you are of the opinion that you could use the time you spend on manual adjustments on the camera somewhere more meaningful.
    • when you're hard to get excited about and you do not think you'll ever enjoy photography.
  • How does the photography course work?

    If you decide to take our photo course, you will receive by e-mail your personal access data for our closed course area. There you will find all course content: texts, videos, practical tasks and much more.

    You can access the photo course from anywhere using your credentials and access it with your laptop, tablet or smartphone, for example. All content is available online for you at any time.

  • How long do I have time for the photography course?

    You can work through the course at your own pace. You get instant access to all content and decide for yourself which lessons you want to work on when and how long you want to spend your lessons on.

    We recommend that you edit all lessons in the order given. If you want to skip a topic or prefer a different order, you can of course do it.

    We know how hard it is to find time for your hobby in everyday life. Therefore, we do not limit access to the course for a specific time. If you choose our photography course, you will have unlimited access to all content for an indefinite period of time. So you can look up again and again later, if you have any questions on a topic.

  • For which cameras is the photo course suitable?

    You can complete the course with any camera that allows you to make manual adjustments, such as aperture and shutter speed. This is possible with all SLR cameras and mirrorless system cameras. But many compact cameras offer you this opportunity.

    If you have a cog on your camera with the letters P, S (or T), A, and M in it, the camera is usually suitable for the course. If you are not sure whether your camera is suitable for the course, just write us an e-mail to fotokurs@22places.de , which camera you own and we'll tell you if it is suitable for our course.

    Which manufacturer your camera is, does not matter. We have in our course participants with cameras from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, Samsung, Panasonic and Fuji. All participants can easily understand the course content with their camera model.

  • Do I need anything else for the course?

    In some practical tasks, it is very advantageous to have a tripod, where there is a very favorable model for the beginning. If necessary, you can also put your camera down for these tasks somewhere, but a tripod is already more convenient.

  • Can I take the course offline?

    Our photo course is designed as an online course. It is therefore very beneficial if you complete the course completely online. For various lessons, we provide compact leaflets as PDFs for printing, and there's nothing wrong with printing out the lessons for offline reading.

    However, the videos for each lesson can not be downloaded. So to watch the videos, you definitely need an internet connection.

  • Can I open the course on my smartphone or tablet?

    This is not a problem. You can open the course on different devices. The course works on a normal computer as well as on tablets and smartphones. You can also switch between devices, if you like z. For example, at home you would most like to learn how to use a computer, but on vacation you would like to look up something on your tablet. The only important thing is that your device has an internet connection.

  • Do I need Lightroom to complete the course?

    In the chapter image editing we show you how to get even more out of your pictures. For this we use the program Lightroom, because in our opinion it is the best choice for editing photos.

    Of course, you can complete the course without having Lightroom. After all, the image editing section is only a relatively small part of the overall course.

    If you prefer to use Photoshop, that's no problem either. Many of the controls in Lightroom are also available in Photoshop, so you can do many things in Photoshop from our Lightroom tutorials.

  • I'm no longer a beginner, but not a pro. Is the course still something for me?

    If you can handle aperture, ISO and shutter speed, your image design leaves nothing to be desired and you already know Lightroom well, then you probably will not learn much new in our course.

    In the end, you have to assess that yourself. Just look again at the contents of each lesson above.

  • How can I pay the course?

    Payment is handled by our service provider Digistore24. As a payment method, you can choose between direct debit, immediate transfer, Paypal or credit card.

    Digistore24 is a professional and reliable payment service provider from Germany. Your data is in safe hands.

    No. You will not find our online photo course on any other site for a lower price. There are also no regular or one-time discount promotions. It is important to us that each of our students pay the same price. Fairness is important to us!

  • Will I receive an invoice for the course?

    Of course, you will also receive an invoice with VAT. You will automatically receive the invoice directly after purchase from our payment service provider Digistore24 via e-mail.
