FREE Beginner Photography Workshop

This is our FREE beginner photography workshop. We will cover the basics of using your camera: what f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO do to create cool pictures. We will also teach some LIGHTING, POSING, and COMPOSITION concepts.  You'll learn how to create a blurry background or take pictures with little light or how to make your kids NOT blurry.  If you're wanting to know more about your new camera and how to take better, more professional looking pictures - this is a great workshop for you.

If you have a camera bring it! If you can learn how to adjust the F-stop, shutter speed, and ISO on your specific camera prior to the class - great! If you can't, we will teach you that night.

We will start right on time so be there! There will be a lot of people that want to get into this class and there will be a waiting list. If you get in and then are not able to make it, please cancel your RSVP through this website so someone else on the waiting list can make it in. The person on the waiting list will automatically be added and will receive an email notification. We love teaching these classes and are excited to do this.

This workshop will NOT be held at the studio.  Thanksgiving Point is allowing us to use their one of their meeting rooms.  This is terrific for us because we do not need to shut down the studio to have a workshop.  They're doing this for free so buy a soda or something when you're there...

See you then!  I really like doing these workshops and hope you will love it.

    Wow... Lost my baby sitter last minute and have been trying for 45 minutes to make something work. Now if I came I'd be an hour late... So looks like I'm not going :( I'm so bummed out! I wanted to be there so bad!! Please do another ASAP! I will do anything to make it in again! I waited by my phone for an hour to be one of the first ones to register so I could make it in... And I did, can't believe I'm not going to be there :( have a great time everyone!!!

    October 2, 2013

    I hate to do this but my daughter is sick and I just can't leave her today. If the meetup was scheduled for later in the day(hint, hint:)!) I wouldn't need a sitter. Anyway, hope to make the next one! Please invite me again. Anxiously, looking forward to it. Hope someone can take my spot tonight!
