Photography has been a gift in my life. When I pick up my camera, the world slows down and the beauty in the mundane is revealed. SnapShops were born out of a desire to enable others not only to grasp the basics of photography with a dslr camera, but also learn how to capture the beauty in their everydays.
The course is designed for the beginner photographer, not for those that are advanced or have a good understanding of using a dslr on the Manual setting. It is for those that the words “aperture”, “shutter speed” and “ISO” sound like a foreign language, but one they would like to learn to speak. It is for those that are captivated by photographs that tell a story and dream of capturing the beauty of their own everyday life. In this course, you will find original content that I have developed over the last four years. I would love to help you go from knowing how to just take a picture to beautifully capturing the moments of your life.
What you need to participate:
a dslr camera and access to the internet…that is it
What we will cover:
General rules for composition
My personal tips for telling a story with your photographs

What is the style of the class?
You will have access to the course for 3 weeks. You can go through the material at your own pace during that time frame. There are not set log in times. Instead it is entirely self-paced. It is designed to allow you ample time to get through the content and practice. Some students spend a little time each day, while others spend chunks of time on the weekends. The course includes numerous photo examples of everyday life for each section. Each section includes a Q&A area for you to ask more questions about that particular topic and receive an answer from me. You will be encouraged to share your photos throughout the course for discussion with other students.
What this class is not:
This is not a class for professional photographers or those wanting tips on creating a photography business. We will touch on post processing, but will not go in-depth. I will answer questions only regarding course curriculum in the context of the class (like a forum, not email), any personal discussion on advanced topics is not included.
When do the courses take place?
The next course will be in February 2013
Gift certificates can be purchased for 2013 workshops.
