AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND IN A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM
$39 SELF PACED COURSE
NEW! This program is now available at Click Photo School as a self-paced course.
All class content is organized into simple steps as part of a clear, self-guided pathway inside a virtual classroom. Registration includes one year access to the course.
Learn when (and how!) to break the “rules” to create compelling images!
In a series of instructional videos, you’ll learn how to read a photograph, how to use intentional rulebreaking to tell a story, and how to draw your viewer into and around the frame.
You’ll see how and why Courtney uses (and breaks!) the rules for everything from composition and cropping to perspective and white balance.
Learn how light affects color and contrast, and discover how you can use color in your work to pull the viewer’s attention to your subject.
Courtney will even show you images that are unsuccessful and tell you how they could have been shot to strengthen the image.
Courtney will bring you behind the scenes to examine both her own images and compelling images from other photographers. You’ll learn what works, why, and how to apply the lessons to your own work.
