Just loving National Geographic Masters of Photography as my October course. It's 80% off with our The Great Courses coupon!

Engaging the World is the lecture I'm watching this week in the  National Geographic Masters of Photography , which you can get for 80% off with our The Great Courses coupon.

Taught by Ed Kashi, this lesson is all about how to capture more difficult issues, such as political unrest, or fractious families. You best serve the subject when you can capture daily life, and this lesson will help you get there.

Trust me when I say this is such a wonderful, valuable course. I have been able to get better with my new Lumix camera, but I've also become a better storyteller too, which I didn't expect.

I also loved the lesson "Use all the Tools" which has the best, funniest title too. Panning, engaging eye contact, and scouting your environment all make a difference to the split-second moment you capture on camera, and you need to engage all of them.

I love The Great Courses so much, and this one might be my favorite.

Make better pictures using National Geographic Masters of Photography this October. It's 80% off with our The Great Courses coupon!

This month I'm working my way through National Geographic Masters of Photography and you can too. Just use our The Great Courses coupon.

Okay, guys, this is such an interesting course. So many lectures I need to learn more about, especially:
  • Exploring Landscapes
  • Set the scene and Get Close
  • The Joys of Nature 
I just got a cool new Lumix camera that is more camera than I know how to use, and this course is helping me make better photos while totally loving the learning!

If you only take snapshots, this course is still for you. Learn more about photos and that will help you take better pictures. It's so awesome, and so easy.  You should get on this for yourself.
