Annie discusses portraiture and photojournalism, and what makes portrait photography so compelling for her as a medium. Learn why Annie loves the photo series and why a single image cannot truly "capture" a person.*
Topics include: Photojournalism and Portraits • Capturing History • Photo Essays
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 loved getting to experience Annie's Masterclass! It was a lot of fun and very educational! A couple of suggestions that I have to improve are.... (1) Talk more about the technical aspect.... editing, lighting, shutter speed and aperture. (2) Make it more personal.... have Annie answer people's individual questions.
open minded masterclass, slow and content based.... what else...
Very excited to get my creative juices flowing again after viewing this.
Excellent class. Annie is an amazing artist with great insight into photography. I highly recommend this course to all photographers.
