Photography Beyond the Basics

Photography 201: Expand Your Photography Skills - Austin, Texas



This class is designed as a sequel to my popular Photography 101 Workshop or Photography Essentials classes.

In Photography 201, we explore and revisit in more detail some of the technical aspects of photography to help further refine your skills while also expanding your thinking about the creative process which leads to outstanding images. 

If you understand the basics of photography, how the shutter speed, aperture and ISO work, and are ready to move to the next level, then this is the class for you!

What are "outstanding" images?
Simply put, they are the photos that stand out as your very best shots! When you achieve that right combination of technical skills, managing light, applying photo editing techniques, all while mixing in a bit of creativity and your unique view of the world, you will increase your ability to create outstanding images!

We can't cover "everything you need to know" to create outstanding images in just one course. No single course can do that. Learning and improving is a journey of growth, discovery, and practice. This class helps move you further along on that journey. Journey with us!

In this class, we will review some of the important fundamentals and then push a bit deeper into these important topics:

Class Format

All sessions are at my photography studio in NW Austin.  Most of this class is lecture-style, but with some hands-on activities for finding how settings work on your camera, group discussion, and Q&A time.

This course is offered in two different formats at various times throughout the year, either as an evening or daytime class, one 2-hr session per week for 5 weeks, and sometimes as a two-day class.

Five 2-Hour Sessions:
The classes are a mix of mostly lecture and some hands-on activities plus homework assignments to help you further practice what we cover in class. The homework is optional, but to get the most out of the class, I encourage you to do the homework! You can send your results by email. There will be question/answer times throughout. I am also happy to meet with you before or after class if you're needing extra help.

Two-Day Class:
In this format, the class is split into one full day with a break for lunch, plus one half-day. The class is a mix of mostly lecture but with several hands-on activities to help reinforce what we cover in class.
