About this Course

Candela is an e-course about moving beyond a technical and mechanical approach to photography toward a deeply expressive personal practice. Who you are matters more than any tip or trick or piece of gear. At a certain point, it’s essential to look inward to discover what you really have to say as an artist. In Candela, we’ll draw powerful new inspiration from heartfelt personal inquiry as we shake up our seeing, abandon rules that constrain creativity, tackle stumbling blocks, and take brave new steps toward true artistry.

"I am totally loving your class and insights! It is helping me to grow not only as a photographer, but as a person. My personal goal as I am taking your class is to find my "signature." I want to find out what touches my heart and matter the flaws or critics. Thank you for opening my eyes to that possibility."  -Penne Fossa
