How Do I Attend an Online Photography Class?

Well, at least with iPhotography, it’s very easy.

Simply choose the class (or classes) that interest you the most right now and sign up. Once you’ve joined your class you can get started straight away and finish it whenever you’ve got time.

The beauty of an iPhotography course is that you have no expiration date or deadline to complete your course. If you start it today you can complete it next year, or the year after! We’re that flexible!

It is that flexibility to fit your training around your life that means 86% of our course members start another course immediately after completing one. Unlike other photography schools our online classes mean you don’t need to attend a live lesson at set times.

All our courses are delivered in video or presentation format which you can access without limits. This means you can always refresh your knowledge months after completing a module to reaffirm your understanding.

Live Photography Workshops

If you live in the UK then you may find a photography workshop near you being hosted by iPhotography. In-person photography workshops are an invaluable way to learn more.

Having the experience of a professional photographer on hand to ask questions, solve problems and give you guidance is the perfect way to invest in your skills.

Whoever leads our iPhotography workshops will be a professional in that area. They will be able to clearly explain how to use your camera (no matter what type it is) and how to take the best possible photo on the day.

Our photography workshops are centred around specific areas of photography. It could be teaching the basics of your camera and understanding the settings. Or it could be an adventure to photograph wildlife, cities, landscapes or more.

Workshops can last a few hours, a full day or even multiple days for bigger events. We’ll provide you with all the information you need for attending and what the workshop will cover in-depth.

Online Photography Workshops

If you don’t live in the UK or in-person workshops aren’t your thing then we’ve got a great alternative that is just as helpful. 

iPhotography PLUS is a monthly subscription platform which, though separate from our course membership, is a great combination to upgrade your training.

Joining our PLUS club means you’ll get access to watch our 2 monthly photo critique videos, as well as join in our live group meet up via Zoom as well as a regular webinar and Q&A. 

We’ve hosted lots of live events online before to give PLUS members tips about wildlife, portraits, landscapes and more. It’s a great chance to ask your Tutors questions live on the stream and get direct answers wherever you are in the world.

And even if you miss one live event, chances are it’ll be recorded and waiting for you to watch back in our iPhotography media library.

Attend a UK Photo Walk

Another type of photography class that iPhotography offers are simple photo walks. Hosted in the UK we regularly meet up with iPhotography course members at different locations and take a stroll around taking shots and chatting about photography.

It’s a much more laid back, casual and chilled out way of practising photography. You’ll be joined by at least 1 iPhotography tutor to lead the walk. They’ll be on hand to answer your photo questions, queries and even try out some cool photo techniques with you.

We’ve hosted photo walks in London and Yorkshire previously with great success. Have a listen to what our course members thought about their photo walks.

The Rule Of Thirds in Photography: What, Why, and When to Break It

The rule of thirds is probably the first “rule” a new photographer will come across. So what is the rule & how do we use it?

How to Get Your Photos Straight and Level

It’s a common fact that we as humans prefer straight, levelled horizons and don’t respond well to things being off-balance. This rule is exactly the same when it comes to photography.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.

The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
