Watch: Olympus' Anywhere Classroom Teaches You How To Take Amazing Photos

If you're new to photography, there is a huge range of excellent, high-quality videos on the Internet that you can use to hone your skills. Olympus has jumped on the bandwagon, with a trio of Anywhere Classroom videos that teach viewers a little about capturing arresting photos.

The videos don't dive deep into anything technical, but touch on something I think is more important — the concepts of framing, lighting, and creating a complete and balanced photograph. "As a photographer, your viewfinder is your canvas" — National Geographic photographer Jay Dickman's words ring true; you can know everything there is to know about aperture and ISO and shutter speeds and still take a bad photo. Basically, the idea is to look for the best image in the camera as you're surveying the scene ahead of you. Work with the tools you've got, people!

Of course, all the images in the Anywhere Classroom series were captured on the Olympus OM-D E-M1. [Olympus Anywhere Classroom]
