You do not need to be creative – there are guidelines

You don’t need to be a creative genius to take breathtaking photographs. In fact, you do not have to be a particularly “creative” person at all. I have never considered myself especially creative. This led me to research the techniques and guidelines to capture more interesting and creative images.

During this course, you will also develop your visual literacy. You will be able to grab, hold and direct your viewers’ attention. They may even have an emotional and sometimes even a physical responses to your images.

Class Curriculum

Why we need to edit our photos?

Our smartphone cameras automatically capture a great image in various conditions. They cater for the lowest skill level user. They do not want or need to know how focus or balance light and colour.

The camera does not know what the intention of our photo is – why we are capturing the photo and what it is that we want to communicate. This is also true for the most expensive cameras. Computational photography is where smartphones really excel. Software makes it easier to consistently capture a great photo.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a later model iPhone or Android phone?
Short answer No. The benefit of a modern smartphone is the low light advancements in the photo capture stage. If you have that blotchy, typical early model low resolution images – we cover that in the course too.
Do I need to a basic understanding of photography first?
This course is designed without the assumption of any prior knowledge. We start at the basics and support you along the way to the more advanced techniques and tools. You can post a question to Mike directly or to our private Facebook group, where you can help others with the answer.
What if have an older phone, iPad or Tablet?
That’s ok. The editing apps will work on any device. If you find that your device does not support the recommended apps – you will receive a full refund. You do not need to wait until that flash new phone to take full advantage of this course. It is not about the camera. The apps selected will work on the iPad and Tablet. Remember, it is not about the camera. You will actually be at a distinct advantage being able to see your progress on a larger screen!
Which apps do you use?
The main app we will be using is Snapseed as well as a small number of other apps that are also available on both iPhone and Android.
What is the format of the course?
The course is broken down into six modules, containing five lessons in each. The total of thirty videos range from five minutes to 20 minutes in length. Each week, a new module is released and made available to progress between the basic, intermediate and more advanced techniques. At the end of each module, there is an activity for you to participate and share your results in our private Facebook group.

I am not good with technology The platform chosen to deliver the course was selected for the ease of use for you in mind. The interface is clutter free and easier to follow than most delivery websites. If you have any trouble at any time, you can reach out to receive prompt support.
How long will the course take?
That is up to you. One module a week will take a relaxed, sustainable time frame of six weeks to complete. If you are a Netflix binge watcher, then you let them bank up and get it done in a weekend!
Can I download the videos?
Yes, you can watch them directly in the course on your smartphone or desktop. I have made them available to download and watch off line. You can also download the audio version. I know sounds funny – listening to a photography course instead of watching. We are busy people and personally, I love podcasts and prefer to listen to courses when that option is made available.
