I hope all of my readers are having a wonderful holiday season and, for those that celebrate Christmas, are enjoying the time with your families!
Based on all the questions I was getting before the Holiday on “what camera” you should buy, I thought it was a great idea to conduct a “photography 101” class at my studio in downtown Apex, NC on December 30th. This class focuses on learning the basic controls of your camera for the first portion then we move into getting better results out of your dSLR . There are only 6 seats available (with 2 instructors) to maximize each person’s one on one time with an instructor and to guarantee your understanding of each concept.
Each class takes it’s own shape but, at a minimum, we shoot 3 different times for about 30-45 minutes each, in 3 different scenarios, using natural light and flash. As soon as the class starts we’ll get your camera in hand and switch it to manual mode. By the time the class ends, you’ll be shooting comfortably in full manual mode and making your adjustments quickly, accurately and understand why your exposure is right or not.
We’ll also be using flash, if you have one, to work on your on-camera flash techniques, how to make it look like it’s off-camera, bounce flash, and even how to make your direct flash look “better”. In other words, the class will give you all of the tools you need to be a better photographer, regardless of the lighting situation.
These are just a few of the things we discuss. Lens selection, composition, different shooting scenarios, etc. To sign up, simply click on the below link to read more about the class and sign up! I look forward to seeing you here!
As you probably have surmised by now, this is no “basic” photography class. My students in the past have ranged from those who just got their dSLR camera to professional photographers looking to learn more about their craft. No matter what skill level you are currently, I can guarantee you will learn from this class and become a better photographer.
Look forward to seeing you there!
