I talked a bit about my quest to improve my photography skills in this post by signing up for a class with CreativeLive, an online platform offering more than 1,500 classes across a variety of topics, including photography, video, design, business, audio, music, crafting, and software training. I upgraded my camera a few months ago, and figured it was time to learn how to shoot on more than a few modes to do my new equipment justice. I’m a few weeks into The Photography Starter Kit for Beginners, and have already gained so much more confidence and knowledge when it comes to snapping away with my DSLR. This particular class consists of 17 video modules, which are each around 10-20 minutes long, making it easy to complete one or two at a time. Additionally, John Greengo (the class instructor) is engaging and makes the concepts simple to understand.
Before taking the class, I knew where to set my camera’s settings in order to get the types of photos I wanted, but didn’t really understand why. My skills were also limited to a certain type of photo – still shots with blurry backgrounds (the fashion blogger special). With John’s instructions, I now understand the basics of taking action shots. I have a deeper understanding of how shutter speed and aperture work together. I know that blurry photos can actually be pretty, and are sometimes the best way to capture a moment. I’ve learned what shutter speeds and lenses require a tripod.
I’m not going to give away all of my new secrets – you’ll have to sign up for the class to learn for yourself. But the good news is that you can sign up for this class or any other class in the CreativeLive catalog using code ISHARE20 for a 20% discount (1 coupon per user, expires 5/31/17).
