This Thursday, my new workshop kicks off at Big Picture Classes: Photo Challenges! This is the follow-up to Design Challenges, a workshop I've taught twice now. It's set up exactly the same way—twelve challenges over the course of four weeks, which breaks down to a new challenge every three days. If you fall behind for some reason, no worries—BPC offers "forever access" which means you always have access to classroom materials, handouts, audios, etc. It's going to be a whole lot of fun... you know how much I love taking pictures : ) Here's the class description:
Grab a camera, any camera, and join Elizabeth Dillow on a 4-week journey that will transform your photographs for good. No matter how skilled (or unskilled) you are as a photographer, you can learn to take pictures that truly capture the magic of your memories. If you're tired of taking photos that never measure up to the scenes you see in your head, then this is the class for you.
Photo Challenges teaches you how to use your eye, not your equipment*, when capturing magical moments through your lens. It actively challenges you to dig deeper and exercise creativity every time you pick up a camera.
With Elizabeth as your guide, you'll take on twelve distinct challenges that are designed to:
teach you the art of visual storytelling
build your confidence as a photographer
show you the big difference small adjustments can make
reset your photographer's eye
challenge and inspire you long after the class comes to a close!
* The class content is designed around composition and subject matter, although technical hints and helps will be available through instructor interaction and via the exclusive message board.
Registration closes August 22, but I encourage you to register sooner : ) Want to win a seat? Just leave a comment below. If you've already registered, enter to win a spot for a camera-toting friend, because challenges are even more fun with a friend! I'll draw a winner Wednesday night. Good luck!
