All students must have a knowledge of manual mode. We will not discuss how to achieve perfect exposure. Students must have a camera, preferably a DSLR. Lightroom editing is discussed and encouraged to have. There is also one Photoshop editing video.
*You can do this course with just a phone, however, it will be easier if you already have a firm grasp on photography.
Hi! I'm Aly. I'm a photographer who loves to help other photographers learn new things. I believe there is always something new to learn. I'm a momma to one (and another on the way!), I love Instagram (you should follow me!), and I love helping fellow photographers. I'm a die hard Nikon fan, a lover of natural light, macro, lifestyle, and dark and moody images.
