After years of blogging, I am finally bucking up and taking my first photography class! I’m excited to take CreativeLive’s The Photography Starter Kit for Beginners, taught by award-winning photographer John Greengo.

If you haven’t heard of CreativeLive yet, it’s a treasure trove of online classes in all kinds of creative topics, from photography to design to crafts and more. They’re based in Seattle too, and though I have loved following what they do, this is actually my first online class through them!

One of the top pieces of advice new bloggers (or those looking to improve their content) is to invest in a good camera or the latest smartphone. Learning how to use those cameras is another sound investment! 

In this class, Greengo will teach us to:

  • Learn the most essential functions of your camera
  • Gain confidence in putting new functions into action
  • Get the swing of basic photographic terminology
  • Feel prepared to move on to more advanced classes
  • Gain a solid understanding of must-know lighting and composition techniques
  • Learn to position yourself and your subject to capture the best photo possible with the camera you have – no additional gear needed 

I’m really looking forward to finally knowing what I’m doing with all of the controls, settings, and features on my camera. I have a solid camera that truly does a lot of the heavy lifting for me, but after this class, I’m hoping to take even better photos. This is a great class for me to start with, but I saw some other classes out of the dozens of photography choices on Creative Live that will be perfect to transition to next.

The class is around 3 hours total but is broken into shorter, more digestible chapters according to each subject. I can’t wait to take it. Let me know if you are too!
