Welcome to EOS Adventure – Essentials of photography

This group aims to give you creative control of your camera. We’re here to help you learn new photography skills and to encourage you to share your pictures.

Group Description

Taking up photography has never been easier thanks to the huge range of quality cameras on the market, from affordable compacts to high-end digital SLRs. But to take inspirational and exciting pictures you don’t just need the kit – you need the know-how too. And that’s where we come in.

With the EOS Adventure project, our team of professional photographers hopes to inspire you to get out there with your camera and take great shots every time by teaching you the essential theories of photography while also giving you the practical skills to get the results you want.

From capturing epic landscapes to framing the perfect portrait, it’s time to switch off the “auto” mode and take creative control of your camera. Learn from our series of weekly video tutorials, read the accompanying online content and open your eyes to the infinite photographic possibilities around you.

Good technique is fundamental to good photography, but quality equipment can really help too. For over 50 years Canon have delivered pioneering imaging technologies, including Digital SLR cameras, lenses and accessories. We aspire to ignite your enthusiasm and firmly set you on the path to creating more amazing images, fueling your love of photography to propel you on your continued journey of creative self-discovery.
