Even though photography is a rather young medium, it has come a long way - from Niepce to digital photography in less than 200 years. In this section, you would find videos that cover some of these developments that brought us to where we are today and also basic topics like image composition, exposure, depth of field, negative, zone system, refining the print and so on. Further, our collection of Fred Picker films throws light on the basics of photography in a step by step manner.

You can preview all of our films for free. If you register at FotoTV, you will be able to watch an entire selection of films for free.

If you subscribe to FotoTV you will get unlimited access to all our videos for the duration of your subscription.

Yours, Marc
