Rachel Brandt Photography Presents Photography 101

Who: I will be teaching an 8 week long online photography 101 class for anyone who wants to get out of auto and into manual and learn the photography basics. This class in intended for DSLR owners who are interested in establishing a basic knowledge of their camera and the mechanics of digital photography which can be built on in the future.If you do not have a DSLR, there are large portions of this class which will be beneficial but you will undoubtedly get more from it if you are using a DSLR.

What: Each participant will receive weekly PDFs with layman’s term breakdowns of the week’s assigned photography principles with visual examples and aids when applicable. Each week there will be assignments to be completed by a certain date. Upon each participant’s submission, I will gently critique your photography and provide tips for improvement. The pictures will also be in an open forum so you can interact with your classmates via a discussion board and you will also have the opportunity to comment on each others photos. At the end of the class you will have an opportunity to have one of your photographs fully critiqued. One week before class starts you will receive an welcome packet with everything you need to know before class starts.

When: This session begins April 1st and runs for eight weeks with a two week grace period on the final portfolio.

Where: Online. We will be using a couple of different easy to use platforms. More information will go out in the introduction email for all registered participants.

How & How Much: The class is $60 if you sign up before March 15th and $65 starting March 16th.

Will you be offering this class in the future? Honest answer. I’m not sure. I depends on how much time I have in the future.

What if I need a refund? Because of the limited number of seats in the course, refunds are not available. If you cannot participate you can transfer the class to someone else or you have the option to wait for a future class with the knowledge that this may be the only session of Photography 101.

Can I give this class as a gift? Yes. Please email me at [email protected] for gifting instructions.

Why are you teaching this class? I am teaching this class because so many people buy a DSLR thinking that they are going to be able to take beautiful photographs straight out of the box. The truth is fancy equipment is only 10% of the equation. This is one of quite a few online photography classes, but many of them do not feature the one on one feedback I feel is integral to learning and looking at your photographs objectively.

I still have a question. Email any questions, comments, or concerns to [email protected]
