This is just an awesome class for truly every level photographer. if you're still a beginner it will open your eyes and teach you some new skills. If you're at an intermediate level, like I feel that I am, it will totally challenge your creativity and give you the competency to explore new skills and genres. I believe even an expert photographer will see things in a new way during this course. Lori is such an easy to understand instructor; her love for the craft is evident, she is knowledgeable and so approachable when you just don't get it. She fosters a group camaraderie both on the group's FB page and in her zoom meetings. It has changed the way I approach much of my own photography and has given me an appreciation for genres I would have never tried before the course.
Joining Lori for A Year of Creative Photography in 2023 was one of the best decisions I’ve made on my photographic journey. Exploring different facets and methods of making and editing photos really awoke my previously sleeping creative muse. I loved that each monthly topic offered up valuable instruction, varied examples, and the time to explore different techniques without feeling rushed. Lori is a knowledgeable and an actively engaged instructor who generously offers up feedback and suggestions beyond the formal instruction. As a bonus, being a part of the private Facebook group allowed for learning from others in the class as well. It was a great experience all the way around!
Joining this class has been really good for me. I've been encouraged and challenged to go outside of my comfort zone, literally, to capture images that I would never have imagined before. I love the format of this class, with instruction and videos that let you work at your own pace, as well as constructive feedback from Lori as well as the other members.
"This class is a must if you have ever wondered what is possible within digital photography or have wanted to be creatively challenged throughout the year. Lori brings her masterful artistry and inherent joy to each module and presents some of the clearest and most supportive guidance to be found online or in person on each topic. When I signed up for the class, I had a basic knowledge of how to shoot in manual mode and was relatively new to digital editing software. After the first few modules, I felt inspired, rejuvenated, and more in control of my craft. Lori offers each lesson in a supportive yet challenging way and treats each enrollee as an equal. As an introvert, I often find it hard to ask questions or show my work during classes. Lori’s course offered me a safe place to grow. I enjoyed it so much that I’m enrolled in it again to build on what I learned last year, taking my photography to the next level. " Jill W 2021 and 2022 Student
"This class has been good for me because I’ve been challenged to explore in detail different aspects of photography: light, color, shadow, movement, abstract photography, photographing water, and more. Each month has brought a different area to explore with thorough instructions, and Lori’s support has been very helpful. The other student's work has inspired me with different ideas and different viewpoints and to work hard to improve my photography and editing."
"Lori's classes are exceptional in every respect - her enthusiasm was contagious; her preparation always exceeded expectations; class activities and assignments were challenging and motivating, and her feedback was constructive and right on target."
"Learn techniques you’ll only find in college photography courses in this well-taught class while keeping camera and editing skills growing."
