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! 


What you’ll learn

In this class we will break down a photo series into manageable steps by:

  • 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

Who is this class for?

This class is for anyone who enjoys taking pictures and is eager to take part in a photography challenge.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, a photo enthusiast, a budding photojournalist, a parent, or heck, you just love documenting life with your camera…this class is for you.

I have been taking pictures for some time with the intention of creating collages but never took the time to learn how. This class was just what I was looking for. If this is something you even think you might like to try, this is the place to learn. Professional instruction delivered in a fun way. Go for it!!
I had a lot of fun both shooting the series and completing the final layout. Your brainstorming ideas were great and helped me focus on one theme. Using Pixlr to complete the collage was really fun and easy. This is a good class for both beginners and people who need an inspiration to do something different.
Thanks for showing me pixlr! That's a pretty neat program. This class is great for beginners or even enthusiasts like me. Thanks for putting photos into a new perspective for me!
