Photography: Chapter One

24-70mm at 56mm, ISO 200, f/ 4.5, 1/160

Stacey and I had the pleasure of teaching an online photography course recently called Photography: Chapter One. We loved every minute of it, and are opening registration up again today for our next session.We loved our students using their cameras to capture every day moments with their children and families and having the confidence to become artists in the process. It was a joy to be a part of. Are you ready to join us on this journey? We would love to have you.

Class will run from July 30th – August 16th.

This 3-week creative e-course was created for visual learners who want to learn how to use their camera in manual mode. We include dozens of photographs to illustrate our points and make manual mode easy to understand. We have created videos to show how to put what you are learning into action, and what the final results might look like. It is our hope that the language used in this course will be clear and helpful, and that you might have an “a-ha moment” (or five) when working through the curriculum and assignments.

This course includes in-depth lessons, illustrations, videos, assignments, and a PDF of the course material at the end of the course.

Topics covered:

  • getting to know your camera
  • the triangle: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO
  • metering
  • white balance
  • basic composition
  • basic post-processing

    I have a Canon Rebel that I know absolutely NOTHING about. ie – it’s always on the green square. I also don’t do any post-editing – no photoshop experience either.

    Is this course for me?
