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'm not a photographer, I don't plan to be one, but this course was pretty cool - like a long talk about the history of Annie's photographies. Amazing!
I'll call this, getting to know Annie as if she was your mentor. Get inspired! I did!
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.
Loved how Annie teaches us how to see and that it's important to identify what matters to you as a photographer
