online photography class
Almost everyone is taking portraits these days, but it’s getting harder and harder to stand out! In this course, you will discover many methods and techniques to take portraits in a new and unexpected way. The course materials include a detailed description of these photographic techniques, many photos, advice and tips on how to find and use locations, light, photo accessories, styling, and how to combine it all to reflect your original imagination and vision. You’ll learn how simple things can dramatically change your photos and how to easily achieve unique results. You will also try more complicated techniques that you always wanted to try, but never did… or that you did not know about before. The materials also include explanations of camera settings and many “behind the scenes” stories, shots and videos from which you will also learn a lot. And because photographing should be both fun and rewarding, at the end of this course you will have not only great portraits, but also an “I really enjoyed this” feeling. These four weeks will motivate you to experiment, to think outside the box and maximize your creativity for stunning and surprising shots. Get inspired and embark on a journey of creative portrait photography, experimenting and improvisation with us!
How it works:
Class 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. After you have completed your work, you will upload your photos and our instructor will offer an honest, to the point critique of your photographs. Detailed schedule of the course can be found here.
Your instructor is passionate about portraits and she 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 in each course.
A forum is available for all your photographic discussions. Here is where you will ask the questions and get answers! Here you can interact with our instructor and fellow photographers. Meet new friends in a fun approachable learning environment.
