People Photography - At It's Best
Course Price: $179.00 U.S.

Photographing people from across the street with a long lens is one thing; making those same images at conversational distance is a whole new level of photographic expression that you'll come to appreciate in this interactive and online photography course designed to having you photograph both friends and strangers with confidence and a creative, expressive eye.

Fact is - many people behind the camera fear close encounters of the "photographic kind."  Shyness and fear of rejection are a part of it. Not knowing just how to handle the situation once you're in it, is another. This challenging online photography course taught by professional photographer, David Bathgate, aims to counter those obstacles - bringing close-in photography of people - total strangers included - well within your reach. The result is nothing short of engagingly powerful!
