Alex Zuccarelli
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(4)
An in-depth 4-week course expanding on and practicing the central skills of photography from color, light, and lenses to patterns, portraiture and street photography. Intended as a continuation of Digital SLR Photography 1 (also 4 weeks).

Class experience

By the end of the 4 weeks of instruction, learners should:

(1) feel confident shooting in Manual Mode and controlling all aspects of exposure, focus, and color balance

(2) feel at home with all of the major features provided by their DSLR camera

(3) be skilled at working in all types of lighting conditions -- natural and artificial

(4) be able to use both hard and diffused light appropriately

(5) understand and be able to effectively use lens flare, high key and low key styles, lines of all types, isolation, compression, shadows, contrast, symmetry, patterns and repetition, negative space, close-up detail, visual pathways, and story-telling in their photos, while also having expanded their use of the rule of thirds, through lines, balance, framing, camera orientations, freezing motion, motion blurring techniques, depth of field, and tilts.

(6) have a strong knowledge of the different lens types and the situations where they're best used

(7) feel comfortable posing and lighting a subject with natural light

(8) have an increasingly acute sense of how to fill the space in the photographic frame

(9) have made significant progress in establishing a unique visual style

(10) have the knowledge to invest in and care for quality photographic gear and accessories
I studied photojournalism at the Brooks Institute of Photography and have worked as a freelance photographer off and on throughout the years, having been involved in this art form for about 25 years. I've spent most of my adult life teaching in a variety of contexts (full-time and part-time) and working with students of many different ages, but especially learners in the middle school and high school range.
Homework Offered
ASSIGNMENTS Students will complete and submit: - (2) technical / practical photography assignments - (4) creative photography assignments - (2) image analysis assignments Technical assignments will take 20-60 minutes to complete. Creative assignments may require several hours over the course of a week with the exact time determined by the student's dedication to creating the best work possible. In other words, you decide how much time to spend on your art. Image analysis assignments will take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour. SLIDESHOW CONTENT Each week's interactive slideshow introduces the topics in short, concise chunks of text -- about 170 words per subject. Text is accompanied by photos, diagrams, illustrations, and animations. A typical weekly slideshow will take 45-60 minutes to work through.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will be given in-depth, structured feedback on each and every assignment. They will also complete multiple self-check mini-quizzes.
Grades Offered

Interactive slideshows (Google Slides) will be provided each week, which will include text lessons, mini-quizzes, photographic examples, assignment instructions, images to analyze, animations, etc. Occasionally, these lessons may include links to external websites.

Students will also be provided with 30-50 minutes of video lessons each week, designed to complement the written materials.


(1) A digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera. Any make and model is fine.
(2) At least one lens. Most people will just have the lens that came with their camera kit, and that is sufficient to begin with. But if you have other lenses, by all means, put them to use.
(3) At least one memory card. 
(4) A tripod. A cheap, mass-market tripod will be fine for this course.
(5) Regular access to a computer. Assignments will only require JPG files, so these can be downloaded and submitted straight from the camera without any editing required.
(6) Regular access to the internet. You'll need this for the slideshows, videos, and other content I'm providing, which is all web-based, as well as to submit your assignments.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Content-wise, there is nothing in this class that's controversial or of concern. However, no one becomes a good photographer without a lot of practice, and students will need to go out and shoot. As the photographic art is largely a solitary one, it will be necessary for learners to be out on their own and have the freedom to wander a bit in search of good situations and light.
Most course content is contained in the slideshows and videos. A free Google account will be needed to easily share collections of images with the instructor. Occasionally, students may be directed to watch external videos hosted on YouTube.
