On of my favorite sources of online learning – CREATIVE LIVE – has been kind of quiet over the holidays, running mostly replays (which are free and great, too!). But they’re hitting January with a vengeance!
Check out these classes coming up for crafters/scrapbookers and photographers:
Fundamentals of Photography by John Greengo (January 12-16, 2015)
Like you, I take lots of photos. But I’ve never had ANY instruction in photography, not even a class in high school or college. I’m just wingin’ it, baby! When other scrappers talk about photography, sometimes I’m like, “What is this shutter speed that you speak of?” Yeah, it can be embarrassing. Well, this class “covers everything you need to know to take better photos. You’ll learn how to choose the gear that’s best for you and how to use it to its fullest potential.”
Bookkeeping for Crafters (January 15-16, 2015) and Bookkeeping for Etsy Sellers (January 17, 2015) by Lauren Venell
My family has a little Etsy shop but, again, we just winged it. The shop is on vacation for now but we plan to activate it again this summer. So these 2 classes really interest me. Have you thought about (or do you already) sell your crafts? This sounds like a great class to check out.
Photoshop 101 by John Willmore (January 19-21, 2015)
ANOTHER thing that would really help my photos and scrapbooking, yet I’ve never learned it: Photoshop. To be honest, I’m quite skerred of it! Very, very intimidating. In this class, Ben will show us “how to use Photoshop’s most important features by working through common, real-world projects and explaining the process. You’ll get to know the Photoshop interface and learn about the features you’ll use the most.” Sounds good to me!
If you want to read more about these classes, RSVP for the *free* initial broadcasts, or even treat yourself to the class recordings, you can check them out HERE.
Hurry! The “Fundamentals of Photography” class has started. I’m listening in while I work at home. Please come join in – it’s FREE – and say hi to “Scrapbook Obsession” in the chat :)
