ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS | YOUR LOCATION
This is our online photography class devoted exclusively to the world of close-up photography. We will take every student on an adventure filled eye-popping journey into the world of CLOSE-UP photography with and without a macro lens! This class will quickly debunk the myth that close-up photography is solely about flowers, bees and butterflies.
Of course no close-up photography class would be complete without exploring these topics, but this course goes way beyond these common subjects and exposes you to many other close-up subjects that will have you soon exclaiming, “Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?”
You will also make the discovery that your own home is a virtual gold mine for ‘mining’ truly compelling photographs.
This 4-week course is loaded with an extreme amount of close-up photography tips and techniques and will not only change your mind about WHAT subjects make a great close-up opportunity but it will also change your style and approach to picture making in general as you soon realize just how many intimate and close encounters await you at every turn-no matter what lenses you may have in your bag.
How it works:
Course starts on Friday - your first lesson will be opened (and so on - four lessons in four weeks). Lesson materials are super valuable with great content - full of interesting theory and practical photo examples. Each week you will receive one fun and innovative lesson that you can download, four lessons in total. At the end of each lesson you will also find your enjoyable and challenging assignment
You will have 10 days to complete your assignment (until next Sunday). After you have completed your work, you will upload your photos for feedback.
Your instructors are passionate about close up and macro photography and will offer extremely honest to the point critiques of your work - we’re all adults here and we’ll save the “sugar coating” for the dessert cookies. Feedback is a gift! You also have the ability to see the other students images and view their critiques from the instructor as well each week.
This forum is available for all your photographic discussions. Here is where you can ask all questions and get answers! Here you can interact with our instructors and fellow photographers. Join our photo community and meet new friends!
