You're ready for a brand new creative challenge to help you pick up your camera and take part in a fun and inspiring month of shooting.
Join us for a 4 week, online workshop, to help you find, shoot in and edit with backlight.
A new written lesson will be released weekly, with examples, explanations and visual guides... and most importantly hands-on challenges to get you out and shoot.
Best of all you'll be part of an online group working through the lessons together, with instructor support from Merissa and Louise... to share your images, ask questions, and be inspired by your Click Love Grow community.
Do I need any props or special equipment for this workshop? All you need for this workshop is your camera, whatever type you have. No studio lighting or fancy gear required.
I can't join in the whole 4 weeks, does that matter? You’ll have lifetime access to the course material. and live video that you can go back and refer to at any time.
Will this teach me camera settings and how to shoot in manual mode? This workshop is focused on expanding creative skills, and while we will talk about some settings used, it won't cover the step-by-step on how the settings work together or how to shoot confidently in manual. If you're not there yet, check out our Enthusiast Photography Course.
Will I receive 1:1 feedback on my photos? Unlike our Enthusiast and Advanced Photography Courses, there is no set format for weekly feedback. However Merissa and Louise will be active in the group to comment on images, to support you, provide guidance and answer questions along the way.
On sale for a limited time only - we'll begin with Lesson #1 on the 5th of Oct
