Gatherings Through the Lens

Gatherings Through the Lens: Shoot Captivating Photos at Celebrations, Events, and Outings of all Sizes

Taught by Holly Clark

4-week guided workshop • Starts August 28, 2014

Special occasions are the spice of life! Races and reunions. County fairs and Christmas concerts. Weddings and weekend barbecues. Any gathering of people you love is worthy of celebrating through the lens of your camera.

But all too often, our pictures don't quite measure up to the magic of our memories.

In Gatherings Through the Lens, you'll learn to take the kinds of pictures that take you back—right back to the picnic or the pool party, the birthday or the baseball game. Pictures that capture the spirit of every event, outing, gathering, or celebration that matters to you.

Yes, you can capture memorable moments that you'll want to return to and relive. You can take captivating photos of the faces you love and the places you'll never forget, with help from professional photographer Holly Clark.

Portraits, group photos, details, action shots, and candids. Capture it all—at all of life's events.

You can participate in this class with any kind of camera—phone camera, point-and-shoot, DSLR—but students with a DSLR will get the most out of this class because of their ability to change lenses and compose images in a way that you can't with other camera types. Phone photographers and point-and-shoot users will receive a ton of information on photography and composition, but some parts of lessons will only apply to DSLR users.

Photo Editing Software Note: You can participate in this class without any specific editing software. You can download a trial version of Photoshop or Lightroom here.

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. This classroom will be available for access and download in your account until January 31, 2015.

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).
