As photographers we have two choices, whether to ‘take’ or ‘make’ a photo. Many things in life look fine if we simply ‘take’ a photo of them. Occasionally we’ll even ‘take’ a great photo. However, to consistently create stunning photos that tell a story, we need to change our thinking a bit and ’make’ photos. Along with the knowledge you’ll gain from these eClasses, a little practice, and preparation, you will be consistently ‘making’ eye-popping images for everyone to enjoy.

HOW IT WORKS
Photography eClasses by Kent Weakley are fun straight forward ways to learn, interact, and share your work with a community of like-minded creative photographers. This is how it works ~ each day at your computer (in the comfort of your home, office, or where ever) a lesson will be available filled with information, photos, details, and all sorts of things to learn. Read it, go through the material AT YOUR OUR PACE. Each course will remain online for you to browse, interact with, and post images and comments to for one month after the eClass start date.

Occasionally we will have an assignment to go out and try some of the techniques we’ve discussed. After these assignments, you will have an opportunity to post your new images and comments up on a gallery page along with other students works. We will be able to all share these information-filled experiences together as a group. Questions and comments can be added to each and every lesson page and they serve to further add more interaction and valuable user input throughout the course. It’s that simple!

Kent, I am new to photgraphy and hve developed some expertise by reading experimenting and absorbing your e-mails. I do have a digital camera however, I have become over the top with the magnificant Minolta and Nikon film SLR cameras that I now have. Do you approach information with your class that can be of assistance to guys that have become interested in making photos with film cameras?

Ron,
The eClasses are strongly based in core fundamental photography skills. Yes, these definitely still apply to film. There are some areas we cover in the eClasses which pertain to digital photography only, but in general photography and the way the camera work really haven’t changed in decades. I hope you decide to join us for the next class.

Thanks,
Kent

Hi Kent,

I am thinking about signing up for your class, but first I have a question. Do you have download material for the class?
I’m not sure 30 days will be long enough for me to go through and practice what you are teaching because of my crazy schedule.
Thanks,
Teri

[Reply]

Hello Teri,
The material is in a post form and the content is available for you to copy and save for your own personal use. I know this is what many previous students have done and it works well for them. Hope to see you in class.

Thanks,
Kent

Hi – this sounds very interesting – but are there particular lenses that would be better/best suited for this? thanks!

[Reply]

No particular lenses are needed. We will cover the different types of lens, but you will be able to work with any and all of your lenses regardless of size, depth of field, or cost. Come join us!

Hi Kent,

I would say I am at a very beginner’s level. I have a FUJI FinePix s8100 with an 18x optical zoom lens. Given the camera and my skill level are the sufficient for your classes? I think I have a standard digital, but I would love to learn how to use the settings and take better picutures moving beyond the standard dial. :-)

Thanks,
Yvonne

What kind of skill base are these courses aimed at?

[Reply]

eClasses are designed to be easy for a beginner and yet informative enough to give intermediate to professional photographers many “ah-ha” moments. Take a look at this page, if you haven’t already. http://kentweakley.com/blog/photography-eclass-students/ Thanks and I hope to see you in class! :)

Hello Kent,

This is definitely the class I have been looking for. Thank you so much! However, I am currently having an exam and that will end on 12 April. I don’t want to miss it, however. What should I do? :(

Thanks,
Vincent

The eClass will be up for a month after the start date. There’s a good chance it will remain available for awhile after that ;)

Its true that to make a photo is arguably more important than to take a photo. BSOP provides Photography Classes, how to make a photo stunning.
