If you’ve been photographing for any time at all you have a visual voice, you just might not be fully aware of it. But with a new perspective on your work and a handful of tips and exercises, this course can help you uncover it. Knowing your visual voice makes it easier to shoot with more intentionality, more cohesiveness, and more fun!

In the first session, we’ll review visual elements (like color, lighting, and compositional choices) and start to explore how they influence voice and the mood or emotion conveyed in images. Then you'll dig into your own body of work, start to discover your visual voice, and then go shoot with that in mind.

The second session is a chance to have your work critiqued and see how well your visual voice is coming through. You'll also learn what you could do differently to make that voice clearer. Armed with that insight, it's time to rinse and repeat; the final session is another chance for critique and feedback (and to see the great work of your classmates).

This course is open to all photographers – it doesn’t matter what you shoot with!
