They say that if you do what you love for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life. Unless, of course, you decide to photograph’s tougher than you think, but the rewards are worth it!

In this course, we will discover the ins and outs of automotive photography, a step-by-step look into the real world of an editorial car photographer. We’ll discover what it’s like to deal with the logistics of photographing a reflective object that weighs thousands of pounds and doesn’t take direction.

Our key topics will include composition, layout, beauty light, detail shots, and movement shots as well as the processes used to make these shots work. These processes include exposure, aperture, depth of field, shutter speed, equipment and location scouting.

You’ll learn insider tricks of the trade and discover how Canon offers you all the tools you need to create the images that inspire you. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of your camera and an appreciation for what it’s really like to be an automotive photographer.
