How to Improve Your Portrait Photography

I’m of the opinion that you always have more to learn. Taking classes is a great way to do that. One thing I’m always striving to improve is my photography. While I have come a LONG way since I started my blog five years ago I still am not where I would like to be. Have you heard of the website Craftsy? They offer online classes that are taught by world renowned instructors. Since Craftsy classes are ONLINE they’re available to you anytime (read you can take them in your pajamas) you want for as long as you want, there are no scheduled class times, so you can enjoy them entirely on your own schedule. Each class is taught by an acclaimed instructor and consists of several hours of HD-quality video content.
I recently took a FREE Portrait Photography Class through Craftsy. Some of the things I loved about Crafty’s online photography class was that while you’re taking a class: you can ask your instructor questions, upload photos, and get personalized responses. You’re able to participate in discussions with your classmates. Access supporting class materials and bookmark your favorite moments in the video so that you can easily re-watch them and take notes that you can refer back to anytime. All that and it’s FREE!
You can learn how to take beautiful, professional-looking photos of your own friends and family with Craftsy’s FREE Professional Family Portraits class too. Sign up now for this FREE Professional Family Portraits class!

PS – Craftsy offers many more classes than just photography, there’s literally a class for everyone!
