A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
In this lesson, you'll learn about light. Every photo is made from the effects of light on your digital camera's sensor, so the importance of understanding and using light has an enormous impact on your photos. You'll find out how to make the most of indoor and outdoor light and how to use some tactics to give you better shots. Then, we'll explore some difficult lighting situations and how to overcome those problems in order to take great people photos.
In this lesson, you’ll learn how to compose a photo. Photo composition involves not only the primary subject and secondary objects, but also the general look and overall feeling of a photo. You’ll find out how to tackle common composition problems, use the rule of thirds, put tactics to work in order to shoot sharp photos, and use depth of field to your advantage.

Thank you, tons of new stuff for me.
This course exceeded my expectations. I'm really glad he covered Photo Shop Elements--I have been wanting to learn to use that program. I purchased a copy during this course and really enjoy using the program. I like Curt Simmon's style--it was a perfect course for me.
