Q:

I have a Canon Power Shit A3300 IS, would this be suitable? I want to get a professional camera with interchangeable lenses but I can't afford that just yet. I've always loved photography and have a lot of compliments of my work, but I don't know anything about lighting etc., so I don't think I'm knowledgeable enough just yet to try and start up a business, which is what I want to do ultimately. Will these classes fulfill all I need to know to become a professional? Will I learn what to look for when buying a professional camera? Do you recommend starting with the Digital 101 course? Thank you!

A:

It seems that point & shoot class would be best for your camera ... our aim is to teach you how to really improve your photography skills!

Q:

I have taken a basic course and am trying to take pics using the manual settings. I don't have much experience with the white light, the raw pics, etc. So--would the 101 or the 102 class be better? And--what if I work....can I log on at any time or is it a specific time only that the class is offered? A.

Allison B.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Allison, it sounds like you are ready for 102! You can log on anytime during the month of your course to review the material.

Q:

Can you explain exactly how the classes work. We can sign in and work at our own pace. So can we watch each class only once? Can we watch one class, then not another for a couple weeks? Months?

Deborah A.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

You can watch the material (and download the worksheets) as many times as you want! You have access to your course through the end of the calendar year. I hope that helps!

Q:

Can I purchase more than one Groupon and use them for the series of classes?

Lisa B.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Hi Lisa
As stated in the fine print, this Groupon has a limit of 3 Groupons per person. You can purchase up to 3 Groupons to use for 3 separate courses. Enjoy!

Kelsey W.  from  Groupon  replied on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Lisa, I know Groupon has some sort of limit on how many you can purchase, but you are welcome to buy and use and multiple classes.

Q:

The editing class - what editing programs will be discussed and used in it? I only have the one that came with my CANON DSLR but nothing else. Also I am a bit torn on with which course to start. I have my DSLR since a few years and am playing with some of the modes and don't always shoot in automatic, but I'm not sure about white balances and stuff and it seems like that's covered in the Digital 101. Thanks.

Janine P.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Janine, If you are more interested in learning how to use your camera, I'd encourage you to think about Digital 101. If you'd rather master some editing concepts, Intro to Editing is more for you. We encourage students to download a free 30 day trial of Photoshop at the start of the course.

Q:

What is the format, ie online speaker with demos (eg lynda.com) or just written material and pics? How many sessions per week, how much material covered per session, how long is each session? Unable to tell from description amount (not scope) of material covered and how it is covered. Thnx

Ash  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Great question Ash! We try sort of a "multi-prong" approach to learning ... so there are videos and worksheets and quizzes - the goal is for each to work together to get the concepts across! We encourage students to set aside 1-2 hrs a week for the course.

Q:

Are there different classes? What are the different classes? I'm already shooting on M. My problem is indoor shooting subject has a shadow.

Q:

Thank you. Nicole asked the question that I was pondering....I wanted to know about SLR film cameras, not digital.

Frederik P.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Frederik, I'm hopeful that we could at lease point you in a direction for film classes ... I know some camera stores that offer film development also offer some film courses!

Q:

For editing class is there a software you use or need? Do you do photoshop at all? If so would taking a editing class qualify you to purchase the student addition of photoshop? Thanks

Becky  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Becky, we recommend that students download the free 30 day trial of Photoshop at the beginning of the course - as we do use that editing system for 3 weeks of the course. I hope that helps!
