Automatic cameras take 'good' photos most of the time, but if you want to take 'great' photos, you need to understand just a little bit more! That's why I have put together this series of introductory articles that are easy to read and understand. They contain all the essential facts that will turn you into a far more competent photographer. - Peter Eastway

 

 

Peter Eastway is an AIPP Grand Master of Photography and a photography magazine editor with over 30 years' experience. Why is this important? Because it means you can rely on the information he provides in his Photo Atelier, a series of 50 free photography newletters provided weekly.  

An atelier is a studio or a space, especially for an artist, a designer or these days, a photographer. And traditionally, the way artists and photographers learned was by working under the watchful eye of a more skilled artisan, often in an atelier.

The Better Photography Photo Atelier is a series of short lessons focused on better techniques and stronger images. It covers all the basic issues Peter runs through when taking or crafting a photograph.

Explained Peter, "There are some things that we all need to understand as photographers. Many of these are 'forgotten' or never learned because our automatic cameras do such a great job. But understanding the craft and technique behind this automation is the only way you will advance your skills as a photographer.

"Photography for me is more than just pointing the camera and pressing the shutter. Everyone does that. You don't even need a camera, just a phone. I use the camera in my phone too, of course, for messages and social media. But what do you use if you want to express yourself?

"Over the next 50 weeks, I'll send you a little Photo Atelier. Some of the topics you might know already while others will hopefully be 'ah-ha!' moments when I'm able to fill in some gaps in your photographic knowledge and help you on your journey.

There are two newsletters. The Almost Weekly newsletter has a photo of the week and other things of interest.You may already be receiving this if you have joined the website previously.

The second is the Photo Atelier and comprises 50 emails over a year.

Your first Atelier should arrive within 15 minutes of subscribing, and then every week at roughly the same time.
