We have our 8-month Professional Intensive, our 6-week Summer Intensive, and now our 6-session online Mini Intensive! In this course, you’ll get an introduction to a variety of photographic topics and instructors. You’ll learn exposure and composition tips for different genres, and you’ll learn some key (but often overlooked or misunderstood) concepts and skills related to editing and printing your work.

Sessions include:
  • Seeing Light (photography is 'writing with light' after all!)
  • Editing in Lightroom
  • People Photography
  • Landscape & Macro Photography
  • Wildlife Photography
  • Printing Your Photos

You should come to this class with a basic understanding of exposure. If you’re still shooting on Auto or simply want a great refresher, consider registering for Exposure Basics: Shooting in Manual Mode.
