I have a confession, I have never taken a photography class and seriously only know how to do like 2 things with my "big girl camera".
I learned on the fly when I was a leather bag designer because I needed photos for my online shop. I bought a super basic Nikon camera package on Amazon and just got started snapping photos. I also learned Photoshop on the fly but I'll write about that another time.
Somehow over the years I managed to find a style of photography and editing I liked enough to keep repeating it as part of my brand. But as I said, I only know like 2 things when it comes to taking non-cellphone pictures.
Needless to say, I've always felt like I could really use a true photography course to feel more confident with my skills. Just the basics, the foundations to start.
I considered some of the free courses taught around town through local community colleges but those class times never seem to fit with my schedule, and it's kind of a pain in the ass to get registered for community college again so there goes that idea.
So after much research I've decided to give THIS CLASS a try through CreativeLive. It seems incredibly well priced and the workshop intro trailer had me convinced that I could learn the essential workings of my camera by the end of the course.
If you're interested in upping your photography game like I am, have a peek at the course and let me know if you sign up so we can be accountability buddies!
