About This Class


photo series is a set of photographs created with the intent of telling a story, evoking emotion, or causing the viewer to take a closer look at something. Shooting a photo series can be a lot of fun, and working within the parameters of a series can ignite your creativity and advance your photography skills.


As a photographer, I love the creative spark that a photo series gives me. Not only do series inspire me to pick up my camera, but they also are a great way to create a cohesive project from start to finish. My current series, “Little Loves: Everyday Life” is a personal, longer and ongoing photo series that allows me to be mindful of the details and moments of my everyday life.  With this class, I want to share with you the joy and satisfaction of creating a photo series and then displaying it in a collage.

A collage is a great format to display your series (and all the work you put into it), and looks fabulous on a blog, Facebook, greeting cards, or printed and framed on your wall!

  • Defining a photo series by looking at examples and resources
  • Learning to develop your idea though word lists, mood boards, and shot lists
  • Discussing basic photo composition and how to strengthen your images
  • Learning about basic photo editing and effects
  • Creating a collage using 4-9 images from your series
