This online photography course is designed to help build your visual vocabulary and create original, expressive photographs with natural and found light.

Photographers often think in terms of an object that we want to photograph: a building, a scene in a park, a mountain, or a person. Yet we cannot move beyond basic documentation without fully understanding the qualities of light that surround our subjects, the way the camera “sees” light, and the creative tools we can use to make the most of the light that is available.

In this workshop, we will build and practice our “light vocabulary” so that we can expand the way that we see light when we are making photographs.

Three interactive online photography lessons are designed to illuminate concepts and inspire you to try new ways of photographing based on the light available to you.

Through individual practice and assignments, you will practice what you have learned on location, and in each online session we will review your work in detail.
