GET OUT OF AUTO MODE! This online course, hosted by award-winning author and photographer Andrew Darlow, covers a wide range of topics from Andrew's book, Focus and Filter (Ulysses Press). It was created to help owners of the printed book or e-book (Kindle/Nook) get the most out of the content (and especially the book's 50 Pro Assignments). The assignments were created to inspire readers to delve into the content and take more (and better) photographs of people, places and things for online and printed portfolios, friends and family, or for client work, such as portrait sessions, food photography assignments, sports teams, etc.
Note from Andrew: "Because this is the first online course that I've done, I am opening it up to anyone who would like to take a look at the content while it's in "Beta" mode. I welcome any comments and suggestions."

"After 27 years as a professional photographer, I've seen a lot of how-to photo books and articles. But I've never seen a book quite like this. It's like an emergency manual for DIY weekend projects, filled with useful photos and helpful tips like how to easily modify your lighting with reflectors and how to choose the right portable flash unit. It will stay in my collection for many years to come."

"One of the hardest things to teach with photography, especially when you are deeply knowledgeable, is keeping it simple for others. Andrew does a fantastic job with Focus and Filter covering an amazing range of what can be complex subjects, and keeping it clearly explained. His writing style is concise and conversational, which always makes learning easier. And some of the tips are just gems and extremely useful."
