Hello!!! So this isn't going to be a super long blog or a blog filled with beautiful wedding images, but it will have some useful information. If you haven't heard, I have released the date for the next workshop! It is going to be held on Sunday, March 18th at 2:00pm! I am really excited! I was more nervous about the first workshop simply because I didn't know what to expect. I learned a lot from the first workshop and what areas to talk about more than others.
So with that being said I am going to give a little insight on what the first 2018 workshop is going to be about. I am going to talk about everything from camera maintenance to taking a correctly exposed image. This workshop is going to be another beginners class. My goal is for everyone to leave the workshop experimenting with manual mode. You don't have to leave a pro but I want to encourage striving away from Auto mode, or the green box. One of the biggest misconceptions is that Auto mode will handle all lighting situations. Not necessarily. I am going to go over each of the camera modes explain what they are and what they are used for. The workshop timeline will be set up exactly like the previous workshop. Meaning, two hours of teaching and two hours of shooting outside. I am a visual learning and a trial and error learner. One of the best ways to learn photography is getting out and shooting.
I am hoping to do several workshops this year. I am also considering doing an intermediate workshop that will discuss editing and posing. This idea is still something I am considering. My first goal and main priority is to teach more people about their camera and how to take correctly exposed pictures. I want everyone to feel comfortable in manual modes and to be able to handle harsh lighting situations. So often cameras are gifted for birthdays and Christmases but then never used because they don't have time to sit down and learn it. Thats where I come in! I want to show the ins-and-outs and give a basic understanding of your camera.
One more thing! I had also mentioned doing a kids beginner photography class and it got a ton of positive feedback! Basically, it would be a workshop set up just like the adults. It would be from ages 8-13 and we would go over simple steps from handling a camera to composition and exposure. It would be halved into two parts: a learning/teaching portion and a shooting portion. Photography is a super cool thing and can be more than a hobby. I shot my first wedding at 15 and would have loved to take a class about the simple basics of the art. Again, this is something I am working on and will hopefully look into setting a date in the near future.
As for the March workshop: Registration opens on FEBRUARY 1ST at 10:00am! I am going to be taking 10 attendees. The workshop will be $65.00 and it will start at 2:00pm on the 18th and end at 6:00pm. It will be first come first serve so mark your calendars! Thank you again and if you have any questions please feel free to email me!
