Exposure Contraption

Normally, it takes photographers dozens of shooting hours before they truly understand the balance between ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and light in the environment. With just a few minutes experimenting with and learning from the Exposure Contraption, you’ll quickly understand this challenging concept.
Replicate and react to the change in light over the course of a day or practice adjusting one setting at a time. After using this tool, you no longer have to rely on trial-and-error to get the perfect shot.

Focus Frame Shoot

By this point, you might have mastered the basics, but if you don’t practice interesting composition your shots will come out well… boring! The Focus. Frame. Shoot. tool coaches you through framing your shots in interesting and engaging ways.


Focus. Frame. Shoot. gives you the tools and feedback to build habits around taking compelling photos.
