Shoot It! Craftsy Photography Class for Craft Bloggers

Have you heard?  Craftsy has just expanded their class offerings to include Photography courses...  They have one PERFECT for Craft Bloggers called Shoot It: A Product Photography Primer.

If you don't have any previous photography or editing experience, this class would be a great way to improve your photos - for capturing your life or having great photos for your blog.

**Personal Aside on Photography**
Years ago in college, I needed to fulfill a course requirement in the Art department.  There weren't too many options for an engineering major - so I decided to take an Intro to Photography course.  It was old school... we developed our own prints in the dark room, learned tons about framing, light, exposure - aperture and shutter speed, etc.  Like I said, OLD school - we used completely manual cameras and developed our own prints from the negatives.

What I didn't know or expect was how the course would change my perspective on photography and how it would play a big role in my future blog.  Yep, right here!  I think my photography here on Gen X Quilters is pretty decent and I do it all without a DSLR and without Photoshop.  Yes - I use a point-and-shoot camera and basic online photo editing tools for EVERY photo on this blog.

Everyone can take great pictures with a little knowledge.  The Shoot It course covers basics like
  • how to plan your photoshoot to tell a story
  • how to best utilize your camera - whatever one you have
  • photography fundamentals (color and composition)
  • basics of photo editing
Is your interest peaked?  Go check it out.....
