"We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us." — Ralph Hattersley
There's a reason why victims of fire or other natural disasters, or people who run from their homes with little but the clothes on their backs, always instinctively try to save one thing. Once family, pets, and anything living is accounted for, it's always photos that those people look to preserve, even in those moments of panic.
Photographs of family, friends, and events are moments in time that can never truly be duplicated. So, it stands to reason that if you're going to click that button and save an image for all time, any photographer has an obligation to history to get it right. With the training in The 2021 Complete Learn to Master Photography and Editing Bundle, users learn exactly how to capture and present those moments with the respect they deserve.
The DSLR camera remains the most reliable weapon of choice for any respected shutterbug, so courses like Canon DSLR Photography explain the steps for using and shooting with a DSLR.

That includes technical terminology like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, as well as expert techniques for achieving sharp focus, white balance, and other creative decision-making skills to craft brilliant images.
Of course, the unique conditions a photographer faces out in the world sometimes demand more than the basic training. That's why many of the courses included are focused on helping learners hone in on different types of photography.
