What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

Getting your settings spot on but feel like there's still something missing from your photos? After you get to know your camera and get started in photography, you may feel equipped to start leveling up your inframe skills. In this class, we will explore the next steps to develop from beginner to amateur photographer. Here we will move from in-camera controls to how you compose your scene. We will examine key topics in lighting, composition, and some beginner gear information. 

Learn how to use lighting direction & intensity to add depth and interest to your shots. Additionally, we will discuss how to harness your surroundings to add interest to your composition through key compositional theories. We will also cover lens choices and types in more depth to further comprehend how they transform an image. Using examples from my own work as well as that of accomplished photographers we will deconstruct what makes certain images stand out from the crowd.

Key Topics


  • Understanding directional lighting
  • Lighting intensity
  • Beginner lighting setups with available light, reflectors, and small lights to begin exploring creative lighting.

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Virtual Digital Photography II
Reviewed by Scott S. on 3/31/2021
Veronica was an excellent instructor, as she was in Digital Photography I. The only reason I gave the course four stars instead of five is because I would have liked more detail and some more discussion about landscape photography. I realize the course might not have had enough time to expand much, but I would have been happy to pay more for a longer course.
