Point Shoot Wow – Online course

Hi it’s Marlene Hielema. I updated my website recently and my fancy sales page for this course got deleted in the process. So this is the stripped down version. I’ll get the proper one back soon. Thanks for your patience. Here is the bare bones info for this course.

The cost of the course is $87 USD. Click this link to purchase using your credit card or PayPal.

In this course you will learn basic photography. You’ll learn a few technical things, but you won’t be overwhelmed with every feature of your camera.

It’s just what you need to get over your fear of all the buttons and dials and just get down to taking photos.

Topics to help you take better pictures include:

  • Composition – where to put people and horizons in the frame and more tips to get your pictures noticed
  • Light – learning to “see” it and use it to your advantage. We’ll talk quality, quantity and direction.
  • Digital cameras – the automatic settings and a few other things
  • Flash – how and when to use it
  • Basic photo editing
  • Sending photos out to be printed, because you still like prints!


  • Assignments to help you practice your skills
  • Fully supported online learning environment where you can ask questions and get feedback.

Don’t have a real camera?

Smart phone users will also get a lot out of this course, because much of it depends on using the fully automatic features.
