About This Class

You don't need an expensive camera to become a better photographer. Start learning now using just what you have to maximize your photographic abilities, by training your eyes to see through a different lens.

In this class, you will learn common pitfalls to avoid and potentials to utilize when taking pictures–whether professional or personal, with a smartphone or DSLR.

You'll do this by compiling a Phlog (photo log) that documents your progress. You'll choose a subject (portrait, still life or city/landscape) and take one photo of that same subject per lesson, implementing what you learned. At the end of the class, you'll be able to look back at the transformation of your eye!
