Teaching Fall Photography Classes Online

In late summer and into the early fall of 2020, I’ll be teaching a variety of photography classes online, including some old favorites and one new course that I am quite pleased to offer.  These classes include:

There are several sections available for each of these classes, taught using the Outschool platform.  You can click the links above to visit the course listing for each class, allowing you to directly enroll your teens into any section that works for his or her schedule.

Basic Photography Camp

“The best camera you’ve got is the one in your hand.” Join me for five days of learning basic photography skills, regardless of the camera you have, even if it’s your phone!

From the description:

In this five-day intensive camp, students will learn how to practice better photography with any camera, and how to critique their own work and that of others for the purpose of improved practice of their photography skills. They will get to work in groups and continue to practice the critique of each other’s photographs using the four-part Feldman Method of critical evaluation.
Students will experience and discuss techniques to improve their photography practice such as photography logbooks, instruction manuals, and camera angle variation, as well as individual and collaborative curation and comparison of photographs for technical improvement.

Intermediate Photography Camp

You’ve learned about the basics. Now take the next step along the photography practice pathway. Join me for five days of intermediate photography techniques.

From the description:

In this five-day intensive camp, students will learn additional elements, principles, and techniques for improving their own photography practice.
Over five days, we’ll cover general techniques, as well as those to consider specifically for shooting water, flowers, buildings (structures), and people.
General techniques covered include aperture, exposure, shutter speed, focal length, depth of field, more about framing (different lenses, different shot types), additional elements and principles of visual communication (specific to photography), and bracketing shots for practice improvement.  On each day of the camp, students will be given opportunities to continue practicing the Feldman Method of photography critique.

Small-Group Photography Workshop I

Get feedback on your photography work in a small group setting! Learn constructive critique! Get a better sense of WHY you’re taking photographs, and HOW to improve your practice!

From the description:

In this two-day small-group workshop camp, students will critique each other’s photographs under my guidance.
On each day of the camp, students will be given opportunities to continue practicing the Feldman Method of photography critique, both giving and receiving critiques.
During these 90-min critique sessions, I will answer questions and provide feedback specific to the issues each student faces with his or her own photography.
At the end of the camp, students will be ready to continue improving their photography through intentional practice and self-critique. This will enhance their toolkit for self-improvement in their own photography practice.

Learning Photography: Composition and Aesthetics

It takes time to learn what makes a good photo, and how to improve your photography. It’s REALLY hard to truly understand WHY you want to improve your photography. For eight weeks, let’s learn photography together!

From the description:

In this eight-week course, students will start with a review of elements of composition and aesthetics in photography, which will be used throughout the rest of the course. For weeks 2-7, students will complete “photo playbook” assignments each week and critique each others’ photos in small groups under my supervision. Through this process, each student will curate his or her own portfolio of work selected from photos taken for the course.

In week eight, each student will present his or her portfolio to the rest of the students in the class. Students will have the option to share their portfolios through my photography website, or they can share their work anywhere else they see fit (for example, on their own blog).

At the end of the course, students will be ready to continue improving their own photography skills through a better understanding of elements of composition and aesthetics in photography, as well as how to apply this understanding to constructive critique of photographic works (their own work and that of other photographers).
