Photo 101 is our most popular offering which you can now take from anywhere in the world. All that you need is an internet connection and your camera. To facilitate deeper participation, we would encourage you to have a webcam and microphone to allow for asking of questions and showing your camera to help us guide you.
Over four consecutive weeks, you’ll learn both the creative and the technical sides of photography from an exceptionally experienced photographer and photography educator. Each session is two hours or slightly longer to accommodate bonus questions. Our class sizes are small to facilitate asking of questions and personal attention for all.
The lessons in this course are designed to be rich and fulfilling. The course covers the key fundamentals upon which all photography is based. Whether for professional pursuits or to simply nurture your photographic passions, this course is for you.
Each week, you’ll be led through a combination of new subjects and accompanying hands-on activities. To further enrich your skills, you will be given light weekly ‘homework’ photo assignments. Homework assignment results are reviewed and discussed each week via a shared Flickr photo sharing group. You can sign up for a free Flickr account to facilitate uploading your homework assignment results.
This course includes all of, but is not limited to:
Getting acquainted with the vital controls of your camera for maximum success
