About This Class

Join Norwegian photographer Marte Marie Forsberg for a short introduction class on telling a visual story, and planning a small shoot.

You'll travel with Marte Marie to her English countryside cottage, pick up a few items at the market, and make your way to a friend's garden allotment to photograph the story of a rustic, everyday feast.

Throughout the lessons, Marte Marie touches on planning a shoot, styling, and photographing — with special consideration to telling a visual story, with emphasis on color, overview images, detail images, and curating a group of images together.

Beautifully shot, full of inspiration, and brimming with insights, this class is perfect for beginning and pro photographers alike. Whether you're shooting a food story for your blog, a magazine pitch, or for a client, you'll leave this class full of inspiration, and with a better understanding fo how to tell visual stories and setting up a small shoot.

It's a welcome reminder of small moments that are truly perfect.

Note: This class is demonstration-based, and the emphasis is on inspiring you to photograph a story of your own. For more technical classes on photography skills, be sure to explore all of Skillshare's photography classes.
