Description

Learning flash photography should not be so hard!

It's a really really confusing and frustrating thing when you first pick up a flash and you don't know what you're doing. 

Now, if you don't have a flash yet or if you picked up a flash and you haven't really figured out how to use it, THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU.

It's for beginners. It’s for people who don't really know what they're doing when they use a speedlight flash. Come inside and I'll show you all the different gear that I use. I'll show you what settings to use and what you should do and how to think through different situations . I'll see you on the inside, join the course today!


--Eddie

P.S. If you ever get stuck/frustrated, HIT ME UP @grainhappy on Instagram. Do NOT allow yourself to get sucked into that horrible feeling thinking that you’re alone and that you can’t do it.

You CAN do this. Just like riding a bike, the first time isn’t going to work. The second time isn’t going to work. And even the THIRD time isn’t going to work. 

Like riding a bike, you don’t quit when you’re learning because you know you’ve got to just JUMP IN and do it. Just spending TIME with it is what helps make those connections grow in your brain. When you give up you STOP making connections in your brain, so that’s EXACTLY WHY you MUST not give up. Push through it.

Hi! I teach about a few different topics here on Udemy. Here's some of my background:


WEBSITE CODING + DESIGN:

I've been working on websites for a decade and a half, first by starting with my own projects and then building sites for others. I started just with basic html, and since then have moved on to use Wordpress almost 100%, and design using CSS. I also know some php, jquery, and javascript as well!

I love helping people save time, and my CSS course on Udemy is meant to get you up to speed quickly and without the headaches!


PIANO:

I've been playing piano since I was five -- when I was just a kid on my mother's lap just mesmerized by the keys. And even though I was classically trained, I fell in love with writing pop-type songs -- catchy rhythmic piano-based songs that got caught in your head. I love to teach, so this is just another step in the many years of my piano career.

I hope you learn so much from my courses.

And most importantly have fun, because that's what will truly help you become a better player, because you will keep coming back to the piano time and time again!
