Annie gives you an exclusive look into her digital post-production process, and shares her thoughts about what it means to be a photographer and creative artist.
Topics include: After the Shoot • The Screen vs. a Print • Final Thoughts
Annie Leibovitz was the first woman to be named chief photographer at Rolling Stone and the last person to take a portrait of John Lennon. In her first online photography class, Annie shows us that what makes a picture stunning isn’t the gear or technology—it’s the story. Annie teaches you her philosophy: how to develop concepts, work with subjects, shoot with natural light, and bring images to life in post-production. See the world through her eyes.

I've always emphasized to others the difference between taking pictures and MAKING pictures. Annie takes it a notch further. She attempts to distill and interpret lives and capture them in a way that makes the camera almost a third party; the first two being her subject and her. This is a great class and a great bit of fresh air into the lungs. Thanks.
In her candid manner Annie took me on her life journey as a photographer, poured her pearls of wisdom down on me and cleansed my creative mind. As a middle-aged relatively new self-taught photographer this has been a watershed moment as an artist. Thank you!
The idea of "seeing" has become a more compelling metaphor for how I will approach writing fiction.
I most enjoyed seeing Annie working behind the scenes to get a better idea of her process. I also really enjoyed hearing about her influences and the evolution of her photography. The class started a little slowly for me but the second half had more detail and insight and I enjoyed it.
