Learn To Think Like A Photographer-An Online Photography Course

This course is also offered by Sam In Washington, DC.

What You’ll Learn

If we’re gonna be photographers, we gotta think like photographers. In a nutshell, learning to “think like a photographer” is what this class is about. Specifically, we’ll talk about how to use our cameras. We’ll also cover photography basics. Finally, we’ll put into practice what we’ve been talkin’ about. What I mean by that is we’ll relate what we do with our camera to what we think about during making the picture (composition). As a result, we’ll make better pictures AND they’ll be compositions that are uniquely yours.

During the Learn To Think Like A Photographer-An Online Photography Course we’ll get into everything we do as photographers to create our photographs. We’ll break down how we create a photograph step by step. When we break down and examine what we do as photographers we’ll be more involved in the composition. And when involving ourselves in the process of composition we make better photographs. During the class, we’ll think of our camera as a tool to create the best photographs that we possibly can. When we understand the tool that we work with then we’ll use that tool skillfully. When we do that, the camera becomes less important and our thought process becomes more important.

How You’ll Learn

During this online course, you’ll get familiar with what we do as photographers. We’ll go through the process of seeing something to photograph to what we do with our camera and our mind to create the photograph. In addition, we’ll think about the intent of composition and camera operation. While applying thought to what we do as photographers during the class, you’ll automatically realize the best picture that you can make and then you’ll make it. You’ll learn by doing.
