Beyond the basics photography ecourseWe are beyond excited to share our latest photography e-Course with you guys! It's called Beyond the Basics, and it's all about pushing yourself as a photographer to the next level creatively. We've had so much fun developing this course over this past year, and we are SO excited to see some of the amazing images we know you all will create as a result.

Beyond the Basics is a creative followup course to one of our best selling courses, DSLR Basics. Taught by the same instructors, Janae Hardy, Elsie Larson, and Emma Chapman, this course will take any photographer who is already comfortable setting their camera manually and push them to the next level creatively! With 25 sessions full of challenges, information, and examples, students will be pushed to think outside the box and break through any photography rut they might find themselves in by being exposed to new techniques and encouraged to photograph in many different situations. By the time students complete this course, they will have created many photographs they can be proud enough of to hang in their homes! 

Whether you are a professional photographer or passionate hobbyist, this course will help push you to that next level. With that said, we do recommend students have either already taken DSLR Basics or that they feel comfortable setting their ISO, aperture, and shutter speed manually. As long as you feel like you have the basics of setting your DSLR camera down, you will have success with this course.

You all will remember Janae from DSLR Basics, and you can also see her archive of posts she's contributed to ABM right here. She also shot our second book, Happy Handmade Home. She is a very talented and experienced photographer, but honestly, my favorite thing about her as a teacher is her excitement is absolutely infectious! All of our course lessons get read, edited, and proofed a number of times before we launch any course, and as I was reading through all of Janae's lessons, I felt absolutely PUMPED UP to go challenge myself as a photographer. I know that anyone who takes this course will feel that same excitement, and that's really one of the things I love about it the most. :) 

You can read more about who this course is for, what you need, what you get with the course, etc. right here.
