Why you should listen to me . . .
Although I'm "an amateur", my photographs have appeared in the pages of Sky & Telescope, Astronomy, History Magazine,Travelog, and many more. Good news for students - you don't have to be a fulltime "pro" to get your work seen by raving fans or paying publications and websites.
What students are saying…
"Love this course and am so glad I joined it. I have never had any confidence in my ability to take photos. What I found really useful about this course were the examples Nancy uses. When she explains what's good or bad about her own photos it helps with understanding her instructions about composition, lighting, etc. I'd heard about the rule of thirds before but hadn't got why it was so important untilshe showed the photo of the bird and it clicked! I hadn't heard about the golden ratio before but that's super helpful and easy to understand too. I also love that she recommends helpful apps. There are so many on the App Store that you could spend a fortune before you find the ones you really need. All in all this is an excellent course, highly recommended for anyone who doesn't want to schlep a big camera around yet still take good photos" - Michelle
