How does this site work?
Images by Dena is a website selling online photography courses. All lessons and classes are taught in a personal and conversational way. The core focus is on teaching you to capture regular life, and enabling you to gain control of your camera, in a way that you can understand and move forward quickly. The amount of time spent on the course is up to you. You can spend a lot or a little time on the Let Go of Auto course. It can be self-paced or you can go week by week. All that I ask of you is to have you camera in your hands as much as possible.
What exactly is Let Go Of Auto?
Let Go Of Auto is my signature online photography class for anyone who want a STEP BY STEP SOLUTION to help them take control of their cameras and transform their photos from amateur to amazing.
Let Go Of Auto walks you through the entire process so you have the confidence to take photos in any situation without second guessing yourself. Using the basics we’ll cover in Module 1, you should start to see improvement in your photos in the very first week of the course. Yes…you read that right! You will see an improvement in your photos in just the first week! All you need is a basic DSLR to be able to implement everything in this course. (You can even apply many of the principles taught in this course to the photos you take with your phone.)
What is included in the online photography courses?
Each course contains modules, which contain 3–4 units. Each unit consists of a downloadable PDF file and video tutorials, and what’s great is that you will have lifetime access to all of the information in the course.
