How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

- Basic editing skills
- Practice with creating a visual story with a beginning, middle and end
I've been teaching photography to various ages over the last ten years and with over twenty years of professional photography experience, I'll share photographs from actual magazine assignments with fun anecdotes about what it took to get the shots.

I'm happy to answer questions if you message me through Outschool. 

++ Similar to learning a new language, an instrument, or a sport, to improve one's photography skills takes practice. It takes both technical thought and flexing creative muscles. I'd love to guide your learner to their next level. 
- Each week students will create images showing the elements or principles we covered in class the previous week.
- They choose the day they want to document their Day in the Life photos, which needs to happen between class 10 and 11.
- An iPhone or iPad are great for this class - especially for beginners. - If a student already knows how to use a DSLR and how to transfer photos to the computer, and edit them - then they can use a DSLR. - Both of the apps listed (Padlet and Snapseed) are free. Students will receive a link to Padlet during class. We post photos to share on Padlet. - Snapseed is a photo editing app and is not mandatory. I suggest it as an excellent alternative to the photo editing app that comes with the phones. Snapseed is free. - I highly recommend printing out the Charts pdfs that are available in this class's Outschool Classroom. They are helpful guides for the learners.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Teacher, classmates, and self-assess.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
- PDF files will be available as links in the Outschool classroom. Charts for the elements of art and principles of design along with charts to help them organize their Day in the Life photoshoot. 
- Instruction is shown through Google Slides and a pdf of the slides will be posted after each class. Students can review them if they'd like.
