All you need is you, your favorite camera (film, digital, smart phone, instant…), and ten minutes a day for 31 days. That’s it. Turn your camera on and go.
In this self-paced course, I’ll teach you how to develop your visual voice, make photography your daily habit, and pick up mad technical skills along the way. Whether you’re a new or seasoned photographer, the assignments will sharpen your eye and your technique. I designed it to be straightforward, fun, and effective. Over 31 days, you’ll delve into both the art and craft of making poetic images. Choose from Session One or Session Two or both!
Date: Start anytime; this is a self-paced e-course
Duration: 31 days
