Frequently Asked Questions

When does Picture Colors begin and end?
It begins on Tuesday, 7/7/20 and ends on Thursday, 8/20/20. During this 6 week window, the project can be enjoyed in a shared, classroom-style experience and also via daily prompt emails. But keep in mind, you will have access to the content of Picture Colors for as long as you'd like, following the end date. This allows you the freedom to continue to participate and/or revisit the content in a self-paced capacity after the initial 6 weeks are over.
Is Picture Colors a guided project or is it self-paced?
That's up to you! For the first 6 weeks (07/07/20-08/20/20) Picture Colors will be guided by Tracey (in an online portal/classroom and via daily emails) and is designed to be shared with the community of students enrolled in the project. You are encouraged to participate daily but you can also just use the prompts on your own, at your own pace. The choice is yours. Also note that after 6 weeks, the content will still be accessible in a self-paced capacity.
Is the content of Picture Colors new?
The prompts of Picture Colors are a hybrid of renewed content from the original class Picture Color offered at Big Picture Classes infused with brand new prompts created specifically for this new edition. With new images and insights, this refreshed version of the project will feel like new!
What kind of camera should I use?
Whatever camera you've got (including your phone)! Any and every camera is welcome in the Picture Series. The whole idea is to get inspired to shoot with whatever camera is making you happy these days and above all else, to enjoy yourself.
Is this a photography class?
Picture Colors is a photography project but it's not a photography class. The Picture Series (Picture Colors included) is a series of themed photo-centric prompts to encourage and inspire a consistent photography practice and in turn, a way to see (and picture) your everyday life in a whole new light. While you'll be using your camera (any camera!) as a creative tool for the prompts, technical photography lessons are not a part of the project.
Are refunds available if I'm not enjoying the project?
Yes. If for any reason you aren't enjoying the project, you may request a full refund.
What if I have technical difficulties?
If you are having any tech or admin issues, you can search the Teachable Knowledge Base, contact Teachable directly or email Tracey at [email protected]
