This course is designed to be viewed over 30 days (though you can go at any pace you like), with a new project to experiment with every day. And all videos are available immediately after signing up.
It’s broken down to four different sections: Flash, Abstract, DIY, and Photoshop.
Week 1 – Abstract Photography
This first week eases you into creative photography. Simple projects that don’t require a flash, and only a touch of processing.
Day 1 – Spiral Light Photography
You can capture unique photos for a dazzling effect.
Day 2 – High Speed Photography
Freeze motion and capture action using nothing more than a fast shutter and a little preparation.
Day 3 – Macro Photography
With a few simple tricks and the right lens, spectacular photos are a few clicks away.
Day 4 – Crystal Ball Photography
Learn how to master this creative accessory, for a fascinating new perspective.
Day 5 – Light Graffiti
Play with light at night and create colourful shapes and words in the sky.
Day 6 – Light Trail Photography
The popular form of long exposure photography captures movement and motion at night.
Day 7 – Long Exposure Daytime
Mix movement and still-life for a hypnotic effect.
Week 2 – DIY Photography
The second week focuses on using ordinary household items in your photography, from plastic forks to picture frames.
You’ll be amazed at what’s possible when you simply use them in the right context.
Day 8 – Colourful Waterdrops
Illuminate colourful details with plenty of colour, using nothing more than what you’ll find inside your kitchen.
Day 9 – Photoelasticity
Would you believe this photo was shot using a polarising filter, a laptop, and some cheap plastic cutlery?
Day 10 – Custom Bokeh
A fun way to get creative with your background blur is to create a custom bokeh.
Day 11 – Oil & Water
A few drops of water, a splash of oil, and a few sheets of coloured card, is all it takes to recreate this abstract image.
Day 12 – Transferring Photos Onto Wood
We walk you through a simple process of transferring photos onto a wooden board. Not to be missed
Day 13 – Steel Wool Photography
Safely play with sparks of fire and capture long exposures that defy all logic.
Day 14 – Photo Montage
You can shoot this with your iPhone and merge the photos together with a couple of clicks in Photoshop.
Week 3 – Flash
Don’t be intimidated by flash photography. It’s not complicated, and it’s not expensive. These six videos use a simple flash and wireless transmitter, purchased for a combined cost of only $100.
They show you how to set your flash for each of these photos, so you can copy their settings.
These are my favourite photos of the course!
Day 15 – Bubble Photography
We use a chef’s tip to inflate the bubbles for 5 minutes, allowing wild swirls to appear for this otherworldly effect.
Day 16 – Harris Shutter Effect
Capture colourful movement with burst fire, and some simple layering.
Day 17 – Slow Sync Flash
Use a flash to freeze a subject, and a simple camera setting to add movement.
Day 18 – Smoke Photography
Capture fascinating and unique shapes, then easily add colour and compositions in Photoshop.
Day 19 – Water Droplet Photography
Have fun and fascinate yourself with abstract water drop photography.
Day 20 – Water Splash Photography

Week 4 – Photoshop
These 10 remaining videos focus on the fun you can have using Photoshop.
