HOW IT WORKS
The Nicole’s Classes application is a downloadable program you install on your computer. (The link to download will be provided the day the class starts.) Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible, fit into most any schedule and we happily welcome international students!
Please note that for some portions of this class (email inquiries and critiques), the instructor may be assisted by an approved professional photography T.A.
Photo 102 has our Photo 101 course or equivalent experience as a prerequisite course. Students must have a good grasp of manual exposures and basic techniques as this will not be covered in Photo 102. Nicole will use a Canon DSLR for demonstrations, but a DSLR of any kind (Nikon, Canon, etc.) will work for the course.

“Photo 101 students, sign up now…this very minute. The first 102 students continually commented on the fun they were having (we’re all obsessed with light painting) and how our photography skills improved. Metering and lighting were taken to the next level. So much technical and artistic information. And I LOVE Nicole’s feedback as I simply could never know the areas and details that need to be improved without it. Both Photo 101 and 102 have heightened my sense of awareness as to the little –and large– details that make an ordinary image extraordinary. THANK YOU Nicole!” —Judy Beck, Photo 102 student
