About This Class

39ae54b3

Mistakes are an unavoidable part of learning process. In the photography, before you are comfortable with your camera, before you know the light and composition, you will make some mistakes. But as in any other area, some mistakes in photography are more common than the others, and knowing those, can help you overcome them faster, and, hopefully learn from them. 

In this class I gathered my top 12 mistakes. The ones I encountered most often, while I was learning photography or saw made by others. By the end of this class you will know about most common mistakes and how to deal with them.

outstanding class especially in conjunction with her other classes. No where else, I believe, will you find any other class so full of useful well presented information.
Maria did an outstanding job making this class and while I was being properly educated on the subject and given really useful tips, I also experienced real aesthetic pleasure at the beautiful pictures she took and included. Thank you very much, you're a very talented young lady <3
