The Photo Classroom
The Photo Classroom sets you up to have a great experience with Photography. It doesnt mean you wont have to work at it, but you are given all the tools necessary to take your camera off of Auto mode to using the more creative modes of Aperture, Program, Shutter and Manual. I have a 4 binder filled with all the class printouts provided by Brian Osborne with the Photo Classroom. Each class has its own handout describing in depth each skill. The beauty of these handouts is my ability to go back and re-read them. Another perk given, is something called the Killer Checklist. This is an abbreviated list of settings for the varying types of shots you may encounter. Again, these are just tools to help you achieve beautiful photos; as the photographer, one must still make the applications, but at least you have some guided starting points. In addition to the classes, there is also the ability to go with the instructor on various Expeditions, affording you access to in the moment instruction. Finally, during this pandemic, we now also have the option of virtual classes as well as access to photo instruction and challenges via Today's Photo Minute. I highly recommend the Photo Classroom as a way of complementing your journey in Photography. Barb Ryan
Ive been taking classes with The Photo Classroom since 2011, part of that time traveling from Raleigh. There is nothing like this anywhere. Brian and all the instructors are eager to help you be a better photographer. Every class is excellent. The lessons are broken down into concepts that make sense. Your questions are always answered. And did I mention the Expeditions? on those too. Try out what you learned with instructors to help you. Worth every penny!
The photo classroom is one of the best places where you can, learn all about your camera including cell phone cameras, how to frame and take incredible pictures and then edit and show to friends and family. If photography is your hobby, business or you just want to operate your new camera more effectively, you will love these classes and expeditions
Today I took the all day photography boot camp and it was AMAZING!!! I have had my Canon Rebel T6 for 9 months and it has been a roller coaster learning how to use it. I have done a ton of online research, watched YouTube videos and then just your good old point and shoot. Finally after months of wait why did that picture turn out like that? and I dont get how to use this mini robot!!, I was finally able to sign up for a bootcamp class. This class was hands down exactly what I needed. After today I have a better understanding of how to not only work my camera but also how to take higher quality photos. The instructors were amazing and very patient with answering any questions everyone in class had. Long story short I would highly recommend this class!!
I have been taking pictures since my early teens when I got my first Nikon. I have read books and knew the basic concepts of ISO, FStop, speed. I could take some decent pictures, but I wasn't able to get to that next level with perfect focus in a variety of lighting settings or get the whole object in focus on closeups. This class taught me how to take that basic understanding to a new level. I was able to go home and take pictures in my back yard that I could not have taken before the knowledge I gained from this class.
