Discovering Your "Voice" as a Photographer
Course Price: $179.00 U.S.

Advancing from snapshots to making photographs is a quantum step for photographers keen on self-expression. It requires competency with light, colour, composition and capturing that definitive sense of moment. But this is just the start!

These online photography lessons and their related hands-on assignments with Corbis photographer and The Compelling Image founder, David Bathgate, will take you beyond the "rules" of photography and stretch your creative limits to explore areas of the genre that inspire creativity and spark an interest in new photographic directions - all with the aim of having you better express in photographs your unique view of the world.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply camera controls - shutter speed, aperture and ISO - as means to expanded photographic expression
  • Use composition in unconventional ways to bring tension, "feel" and emotion to your photos
  • Mix flash with ambient light to add drama to pictures you make
  • Interpret scenes and subjects according to your vision - your personal way of seeing the world

  • Selection of lenses from wide-angle to medium telephoto
  • Computer with photo-processing software (e.g. Photoshop)
  • A light but study tripod would be beneficial
