Is this class for me?
- You have a DSLR or mirrorless camera (Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.) that you don't know how to use.
- You are a parent who wants to take better pictures of your family.
- You are a blogger who wants to improve the quality of the photos you post.
- You want better product pictures for your Etsy shop, Facebook page or business.
Who is this class NOT for?
- If you are thinking about starting your own photography business this class is not for you. I will not be discussing the business of photography.
- If you already know all the bells & whistles of your camera and can consistently take properly exposed and creative photos you are probably too advanced for this class.
