Lesson № 2.
SO, DOES IT ALL DEPEND ON YOUR CAMERA?

Webinar: 2-3 hrs

Clearing your mind from the tech perspective.

They are always asking me: "What kind of camera do you use?". Is it so important which pot does the Chef use? And what kind of camera does the photographer use?

I changed several camera systems (Nikon, Canon, Sony), tried tens of lenses and cameras. So, I've got something to share with you, just believe me.

I will show as the example several shots made with various cameras, lenses and tell you about their advantages and disadvantages. Also, I will tell you where you can save some money, and what kind of 'equipment' you will need for sure.

FEED-BACK FROM MY STUDENTS
Some lovely words from my offline workshops participants & students.
(Since this online course is a newborn, I have not accumulated yet any feedback on it)
Peter Stavrinides
Photographer
"She injects passion to create into the workshop participants. She forces them to creative thinking rather than just to mindless pressing of the shutter button."

Olga Kornilova
Photographer
"The workshop was well structured and filled with inspiring atmosphere. I enjoyed every moment during those 2 days - useful theory part was followed by great practice, reviews of works and portfolio with honest and professional feedback and advices given in a constructive way, photoshop editing techniques"

Damian Drewniak
Photographer
"Ania gives all her 'photographic' self right out. In short, I can only say that meeting her has turned my photographic 'know-how' upside down"
BRIEF BACKGROUND
It took me lots of time to 'give birth' to this course.

I need to confess, for a long time I was avoiding any online interactions, especially in working with groups, as I thought such a format has its limitations and doesn't permit to establish a quality contact between participants. I was afraid that it will be too difficult to catch this creative vibe, and that nothing can replace this 'live' communication.

But the reality showed me, that I was wrong. In April 2020 I organized my first online photo-challenge, and the energy I felt amazed me. This vibe, was so strong, despite all the participants were all over the world.

Moreover, I was so inspired by this sense of unity, these tons of things we had in common with the participants. And our communication - it was almost a real-life experience.

This photo-challenge made me understand that I want to organize my online courses, keeping and saving this creative vibes.

So, I was to create the course with lots of communication, meaningful connections, 'support' chat, and using webinars as the basic learning tool. And during the webinar any participant can always ask a question and directly influence the course's program. I believe that each group of participants of my course will be unique, with its own character, and specific traits.
