Last year I created The M, an online photography course. I’ve been working the last week on updating the content, branding, private blog, and blog design. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say this about my own class, but it is now more awesome than ever! I had originally planned on turning it into a printable PDF, but instead decided to keep it all the content on a private blog that I can update constantly. You’ll have access to the class for… forever (well, until my server meets its death).
A little bit about The M —
I’ve heard from too many people how they’re scared to slide their camera’s setting from Auto or Shutter/Aperture Priority over to the the big M. I was too! My settings didn’t move out of Auto until a year after I got a DSLR. But, one day I decided to learn Manual and I haven’t switched it back since!
If you’re a blogger who wants to bring your blog to the next level with its own unique photographs or an Etsy shop owner tired of low quality photography representing your amazing product, The M will be a fantastic resource for you! Or if you just want to take better photos of your family, self, and life! This class is for anyone who wants to learn the technical aspects of digital photography in an easy to understand and un-intimidating setting. The class starts at the very basics– camera and lens recommendations, exposure, composition, lighting, and Photoshop corrections. It ends with basic tips from everything from landscape to portrait photography, though most of the focus is on portraiture, but other subject matter is covered.
Some of the included topics — My Photography Journey, My Equipment, Camera Recommendations, Learning YOUR camera, The Exposure Triumvirate, Focus, Composition, Cropping, Basic Editing, Lighting Tips, Using Layers, Object Removal, Skin Retouching, Eye Sharpening, Dodging and Burning, If I Could…, Color Balance, Photoshop Color Correction, Adding Color in Photoshop, Creating with Actions, Posing and Working With People, 5 Tips/Ideas, Night/Fake Light, Saving For Web, Film Photography Tip, Portfolio Tips, Saving Images for Print, Camera Bags, and Using Lightroom — along with free Photoshop actions, links and resources, and critiques of your past and current work.
In celebration of updating the content, I am putting The M online sale for $35 (from $45)! You can purchase it here. It will only be on sale for a week, so get it now!
P.S. If you had taken the course originally, the password to access the site is still the same!
