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

Description

Class Experience

I hold a BA in Studio Art/Photography and Psychology, and am trained both as a photographer and as a Montessori assistant teacher. As an educator I have experience teaching children pre-K through high school. 
Photography assignments that allow students to practice the ideas introduced in class will be given each meeting, and each student will share their work and discuss their experience and any questions around the assignment the following day.
 1 file available upon enrollment
All learners will need: #1 A DSLR camera and lens, or other camera with a manual exposure mode to adjust the settings for aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. (Make sure you have a memory card and battery + charger, too!) #2 The means to upload the photos to a computer, tablet, or cellphone with an internet connection and web browser. For example, with a cable for the camera or a memory card reader. Please make sure your learner can upload photos to the device prior to class, so they are ready to complete your projects and focus on learning how to use their camera. If you are unsure if your camera has a manual exposure mode, you can check the camera instruction manual, or feel free to message me! A film SLR camera could also be used, but the photos must be scanned to digital files, and with developing time learners would have less time to complete the projects each week. Many introductory DSLR cameras are available for relatively low cost used or new. Examples: - Nikon D3400 or D3500 - Nikon D5500 or D5600 - Nikon D7000, D7100, D7200, D7500 - Canon Rebel T8i / 350D - Canon Rebel T7 / 2000D - Canon Rebel T6 / 1300D - Canon Rebel SL3 / 250D - Canon Rebel T100v/ 4000D (Canon camera with lowest recommended retail price) A few old edition options that are still great to get started with learning manual mode on a budget: - Nikon D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300 (old versions of D3500) - Nikon D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 (old versions of D5600) - Nikon D70s, D70, D80, D90 (old versions of D7000) - Nikon D40, D40x, D50, D60 (old versions of D3000 and D5000 series) - any older Canon Rebel
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
5 hours 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
Some photographers and/or photo theorists who we learn about may have photography work or analysis that involves nudity and themes of sexuality, much like you might encounter in an exhibit at an art museum or in fashion photography. We will not explore these in class, but there is the possibility that students come upon them during further research.
