This not a video course but some segments of the class do have short videos to help you grasp the concepts. You will be able to read the material and ask me questions at your own pace. It is designed to allow you ample time to get through the content and practice. Some students spend a little time each day, while others spend chunks of time on the weekends. The course includes numerous photo examples of everyday life for each section. You will be encouraged to share your photos on our Facebook fan page throughout the course for discussion with other students.

 

 

What this class is not: 
This is not a class for professional photographers or those wanting tips on creating a photography business. We will not touch on post processing I will answer questions only regarding course curriculum in the context of the class (please me with email your questions), any personal discussion on advanced topics is not included. This is also not a class for those that already understand how to shoot in the full Manual mode.
