Fine Art Photography is traditionally thought of as an image captured "masterfully." Think of the works of masters like Paul Strand, Irving Penn, and Dorothea Lange. They have all made images that are rightfully placed in museums and photography history books. Creative Digital Photography is an online photography courses and classes is designed to stretch the genre for you personally as a photographer. The results you create just might be expressively-creative fine art masterpieces of your own.

Think outside the box. Fine art photographers are challenged to present a subject in creatively different ways - to use composition, light, film grain (digital "noise") and lenses to make a personal photographic statement that excites and initiates discussion.  And with digital technologies as they are today, avenues of creative expression for the fine art photographer - at any level of skill - are practically endless. This is exactly what this online photography course is about. Aimed to inspire and motivate through hands-on lessons and fun and challenging assignments, you'll discover your pictures transformed within-camera and through an artistic grasp of photo-processing software. Join in the exploration and hang your own unique mark on the fine art gallery wall.

I previously taken a TCI course with David Bathgate and it was excellent! Now I can say the same about the Fine Art Photography experience with instructor, Gina Genis. I learned a lot and enjoyed every assignment along the way. Recommended without reservations.
