Capture Life

Capture Life: How to create magical photos of everyday moments

Taught by Rebecca Cooper

12-week guided workshop • Starts October 2, 2014

Every photo tells a story, no matter how technically perfect it is. Now in this 12-week workshop with celebrated photographer and scrapbooker Rebecca Cooper, you can learn to do both—tell better stories with the pictures you take of your everyday life and improve your technical photography skills.

You'll finally be able to capture moments as beautifully as you see them, and maybe even infuse them with a little bit of magic.

In October, you'll learn to Capture the Everyday. In November, you'll learn to Capture Beauty. In December, you'll learn to Capture the Holidays.

Rebecca will share the specific tools, tricks, and ideas she uses to create the lovely, fresh, nostalgic look she's known for. She'll walk you through her process start to finish—from creative beginning to post-processing end. Here's your chance to use her workflow as a foundation for developing a process that works for you.

A Guided Workshop is an online, interactive eCourse that is taught in real time by one or more expert instructors. Guided Workshops have a specific start and end date, with a limited registration period.

Content is delivered via a combination of video tutorials, written lessons, project examples, downloadable handouts, printables, digital downloads, and more. You are invited to log into the private online classroom as often as you wish during the live class.

Please note: This workshop will be transferring to our new site, so you can continue to access the content online even after the transition. We will send you a unique code for this class once the new platform is live. You will then enter this code into the new site and PRESTO, your class content will be archived there. You are also welcome to download and keep anything you wish. 

During class, you'll enjoy direct access to the instructor both via email and via the classroom message board, as well as a real sense of community and camaraderie with hundreds or thousands of fellow eLearners.

There are opportunities to connect with fellow students via the classroom message board, the private gallery, and scheduled chats (depending on the class).
