Beginner’s Workshop (10am-2pm)

Introductory Course to Manual Mode.

My first introductory course for May 18th filled in less than 2 weeks after promoting! I know there are quite a few of you that wanted to participate, but couldn't make the date. I am happy to announce that I opened another class date in June! There are only 6 spots available and it fills up quickly!


The Workshop

Do you have a digital SLR camera and have never taken it off ‘AUTO’?  Did you buy it thinking you’d have images like the professionals because you have a camera like the professionals? Well if you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, don’t feel bad. Majority fall in that trap as well. The only way to take amazing photos is to make the decision to say NO to auto and learn the camera’s manual settings.  I will teach you how to find the right settings on your camera, so you can leave with the confidence to photograph yourself!

Come join me for a fun beginners’ photography workshop! This is a hand-ons approach to learning. The first two hours we will meet at the comforts of my studio for introductions, the essential knowledge to shooting and then make our way to a local park afterwards for some field work. The last 30 minutes will be for questions and answer time.

What we’ll discuss: 

  • How to use your Digital SLR camera
  • Aperture (f-stop), shutter speed, ISO, and how they all work together
  • Lighting, how to locate the best light
  • Lens suggestions
  • 1 1/2 hour of shooting time with assignments & then discussion and questions afterwards
  • Composition and tips on getting the most natural poses from your models.
  • The importance of capturing the candid moments and how to get them


 What this workshop isn’t: 

  • This is not a business workshop. We will not be discussing how to start a business.
  • This is not a class for people who already know the basics. There will be  more advanced classes later for field trips and point and shoot techniques.
  • We will not discuss flash, strobe, or backdrop setups.
  • We won’t go over advanced editing techniques with Photoshop or post editing software.

Take home:  

  • Review guide & suggestions to continue your education.
  • New friendships with other local photography enthusiasts
  • Invitation to Facebook forum with past workshop attendee’s
