Feeling stifled in lockdown? Want to make the “everyday” a little more interesting?

This iPhone photo class and critique has been specially designed for quarantine conditions. Discover the magic that’s just outside your window – and capture it perfectly from inside. Compose Instagram-worthy food photos. Share Fido’s best side with the world – no filters needed.

Students will work with tools, lighting, and subjects easily found around the house. Each week, a new video tutorial and assignment will be released, and students will upload their work to Syncsketch to get feedback from classmates.

Each Monday at 6pm, students will meet via Zoom for an online group critique, where they can share responses to each other’s work and get feedback from the instructor. Critique is an essential part of the process, because by understanding what you like or don’t like in a photo, you will be able to improve your photos dramatically.
