Over the past 10 years in business I've been asked a LOT of camera questions...
It always seemed that the questions were being asked while at a ball game or an event where the pictures they wanted to take were important but they weren't getting the results they wanted.. they couldn't understand why "AUTO" wasn't working 'automatically'.
And that's EXACTLY where I started!!
I wanted to take pictures of my kids playing sports, at school events, on Christmas morning, etc.. but it just wasn't working!
The final straw was one Saturday about 12 years ago when I tried to take pictures at their basketball games.. I was so frustrated by the time I left their games that day, that I went home and scoured the internet for everything I could find about how to work my new camera..
I was on a mission!
Little did I know that I was re-igniting a fire that actually started when I was a little girl with my very first pink 110 film camera! (I've always thought it was so neat that I could click a button and stop time! I call it my superpower! Corny, I know.. but true!)
Cameras and the photography industry as a whole have changed A LOT since my little pink camera days, but one thing that hasn't changed is the basics of photography.
I want to help you learn the basics and buttons without all the hours of research on the internet!
Are you feeling how I felt?
Brand new and no idea where to start or what to do?
Frustrated and as if you're never going to learn how to use your camera?
Then you're in luck!
I've taught several beginner classes so far and I'm happy to say that my students left with a better understanding of these things and more:
What are all those buttons for? When will I use them?Why won't it do what I want it to do?
Why aren't my photos in focus?Why don't my pictures look how I want them to? When and how do I use all these lenses?
When should I use my flash? When should I use the M,A,S, and P and all those other settings?
Believe me, I know all the questions and frustrations that run through your mind because I had the same ones! (and ^those^ aren't even ALL of them!)
WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?!
Anyone 13 or older that wants learn more about their camera so they can take better photos!
Honestly... if you've read this far, I have a feeling you may be like me and just need someone to SHOW you what to do instead of reading the dang manual.
WHAT WILL WE DO?!
We'll start out by going over all the buttons, what they'll do, camera functions, and some basic art applications... then a little over half-way through, a few of my Senior Crew teens will join us so you can practice what you've learned and I'm there to help guide you!
I've laid out very easy to understand lessons, there will be plenty of time for Q&A, and then hands-on practice time so you can understand what your camera can do so you can take better photos -the same day!
Your seat reservation includes:
- the 3 hour class, - a workbook you can take home so you can reference back, - snacks, (super important!) -hands-on guidance and practice time,
-AND- It's not required, but I'd like to take YOUR photo!
Why a picture of you?? Well, because I've found that most folks that like to take pictures rarely like to be in pictures, so I wanna change that for you! Don't feel as if you have to dress up or anything.. it can be a casual photo that you can use on social media... or put it out in the garden this Spring! ;)
