Topics include: Introduction to the Class
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.

Absolutely the finest class I have seen and learned so much from! Annie Leibovitz gives an honest insight into how she has approached photography.
Wow!! What an incredible opportunity to watch and be given access to Annie's impressive journey!! Thank YOU Annie and MasterClass!!
She makes you really think about what photograph you are taking, what you are trying to capture, not just a picture of an event or a moment in time but how does that experience feel?
I learned a lot from Anne in all the lessons. I learned about perspective and to not stay inside the square or rectangle. I also learned how to observe everything around me and decide on the image I am interested in capturing.
