Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the many different types of photography that they could choose to specialize in or focus on. 
This course allows students to explore many different options over 10 weeks so that they can find what they really enjoy photographing the most. 
Before I began mentoring aspiring and working photographers, I ran a successful photography business in a small town in Pennsylvania. I made many mistakes along the way which helped me develop the training program that I use for mentoring and have adapted for teenagers here on Outschool. 
Students can expect to spend 1-3 hours each week working on their photography skills. Most of this time will be taking photos for class assignments and to continue improving photography skills. 
A camera that allows the student to change their aperture, shutter speed, and ISO is required for this course. DSLR or mirrorless cameras are most common. Many students will be using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop at this point in their photography education.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
All learners will receive feedback on all of their images throughout class. 
Grades can be provided for any students who need them - contact me for more information. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will choose a cause that is important to them to create an image in the last weeks of class. Each student's own personal experiences will impact their choices and students may choose to share these only with me via message but this particular assignment may bring up a variety of more mature topics.
