I am a big believer in professional development.
As a teacher I advocate life long learning. As a photographer I continue to grow and develop when I hone my skills and perfect my craft. This is why I dedicate time and patience to various workshops with fellow London photographers. A recent on-line workshop proved to be a roaring success and I wholly recommend it for any fellow enthusiasts.
Here’s how a Udemy can help you:
- Clear instruction – Don is a natural teacher and has a relaxed style. He delivers expert tuition in a calm, steady manner allowing you take on board his ideas and suggestions.
- Practical – each chapter of the course is illustrated with an intro, practical session and overview including his post-processing.
- Feedback – your images will receive personal feeback from fellow students and even the great Don himself if you choose to join the flickr group.
- Questions answered – each chapter has a section where you are able to ask questions. Being able to seek counsel and advice in a friendly environment is motivating.
- Challenging – learning from the masters of their trade is little like an apprenticeship. There’s enough information to make sure all levels of proficiency feel they are learning something useful and worthwhile.
- Fun – this is what life is all about – getting out there and trying something new.
My sister’s little puppy. Do you know how difficult photographing a black dog is! Mum held the board to bounce light back onto our model’s face.
Is it for you?
Only you can decide that. Let me tell you this. I enjoyed the first course so much I’ve already signed onto the next course by Don, Natural Light Photography. If anyone would like to meet up and share some photo geekery, I’m always up for meeting new photo friends.
