Improve your photography skills with Craftsy

This is not a comment giveaway. I love your comments and tweets, but you must sign up for Craftsy to enter. That’s all!

Let me tell you something. I am not a good photgrapher. I don’t have an expensive camera. I’m rarely awake when natural light is out, and I just don’t have an eye for setting the scene. As best, I try to take cute pictures of my cats and clear pictures of products when I can. But many times I’m not going to take a photo because the ones I’m provided with are better or higher quality. I try, though, and I try more frequently lately.

That’s why I was so excited to learn that I could host a giveaway for one reader of Reviews by Cole to win a free photography class from Craftsy. The photography class is one among many you can register for if you sign up.

This giveaway will sign you up for the Family Photography: Candid Moments & Storytelling class by Kirk Tuck on Craftsy. Even if you’re not a family man or woman, you can still use these skills to improve your photo-taking ability. It’s great for bloggers any anyone who has recently invested in a DSLR.

It’s described as follows.

Gain the confidence and skills you need to turn spontaneous moments into unforgettable photos! Learn expert strategies for indoor and outdoor family shoots guided by professional photographer Kirk Tuck, and discover how to think like a storyteller for compelling photos that capture your subject’s personality. Explore the key settings behind blur-free action shots, and unlock the secret for shooting successfully in harsh sunlight. Use bounce flash for flattering indoor portraits, and dive into Adobe Lightroom with essential presets and advanced techniques for professional images that will bring out the best in everyone. Plus, learn how to size, format and export photos for personalized greeting cards that showcase your family and your photography skills!

The class is on sale right now for $45. It typically costs $60, however. The class includes 8 different lessons:

  1. Introduction
  2. Shooting in Open Shade
  3. Shutter Speed and Movement
  4. Natural Light Indoors
  5. Think Like a Storyteller
  6. Post-Processing Fundamentals
  7. Advanced Post-Processing
  8. Bonus: DSLR Menus

And don’t think you don’t have time. The lessons are all relatively short — the longest is just 31 minutes — so you can work it into your busy family life. Take the lessons at your own pace, and you’ll be a camera pro in no time! You can also ask questions of the other students and instructor Kirk Tuck. All materials are closed captioned. too.

This class is best taken if you have a DSLR with tripod and electronic flash.

If you think that this is something you’d like to try, all you have to do is enter on Craftsy. Sign up. That’s it! There’s only the single entry so you needn’t return. However, I would love if you  would spread the word with this retweet:

Craftsy will notify all winners by email.
