Four Weeks to Proficiency in Photography Online
February 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$297.00
Instructor Peggy Farren really simplifies and shows you STEP by STEP how to use your camera. She has a great way of explaining the technical aspects of photography so that even right brain creatives can understand it.
Once you purchase an online course, you own it for life (for the life of my business, which hopefully, is a long time!). The biggest difference between this course and our hands-on course is the homework and instructor support. You have specific exercises to help you really learn the basic technical concepts you’ll need to know to progress as a photographer. And you have instructor support seven days per week while the class is going on.
This is an interactive class with tons of support. It’s not like the online classes you’ve taken before with a person just talking at you. Peggy is right there to support you. You can ask questions anytime and get answers within a few hours.
The course includes:
- Week One: Shoot in Manual – We’ll get you shooting in the Manual setting in just two hours. This has been our most popular workshop since the start of Understand Photography Training Center.
You won’t believe how simple exposure is! You’ll have a surge of confidence after this first class.
- Week Two: Composition – The Most Important Class you’ll take to Improve Your Photography! Everyone thinks they understand the Rule of Thirds but we find that they really don’t. Learn where your eye naturally goes and how to use leading lines, power points, negative space, color and more to make a more pleasing image.
In this workshop, you’ll learn why you are not winning competitions with your images – it’s almost always a composition issue! We teach some basic posing in this class as well. Posing just means you are helping someone look their best. It shouldn’t be grueling or stiff. Learn the simple techniques to make your subjects look great!
- Week Three: Lighting Essentials – Do you love natural light? So do we! Learn how to take great pictures in natural light. Open shade, add dimension, use reflectors, additive and subtractive light. However, natural light is not practical at all times. Learn to use your flash to create natural looking light when needed. The principles are the same for both pop up flash that comes with your camera and a speedlight.
Flash can be complicated. We simplify it.
- Week Four: The Technical Class – Don’t worry! You’ll be ready for this workshop!
Metering Modes, White Balance, Drive Modes, Focal point, focus modes and more! We do our best to make the technical stuff easy to understand!
