People & Portrait Photo Workshop

People are challenging photo subjects!

For many photographers the prospect of shooting even candid photos of people can be intimidating.

This workshop is all about the skills and techniques you can us to create better photos off the people in your life. We will cover the camera control options and creative tools you have to photograph people. This is a good course for beginners or more experienced photographers who want to get into making better portraits.

We will cover:

  • Candid portrait making
  • Informal portraits
  • Available light portraits
  • Optical choices
  • Poses and positions
  • And other tips and techniques


For this workshop the type of camera you have makes no difference. The concepts and skills we will be reviewing apply equally to POINT & SHOOT and DIGITAL SLR cameras. I will you introduce you to the basic camera controls and menus for shooting creative digital photography of people and portraits.

This class is open to adult digital photographers with little or no photo experience. We will meet for 2.5 hours to discuss photo techniques and to practice (hands-on) new skills. I will provide a class handout that includes the class notes and some suggested practice exercises you can do on your own.

Please bring the following:

  • The CAMERA OWNER MANUAL (Important!)
  • ENTHUSIASM for learning photography!

Registration is required and space is limited for this workshop. SIGN-UP today!

    Great workshop! Excellent info and tips in a welcoming and informal setting. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to experiment / practice between chunks of information so that we could apply what we'd learned. Thanks for a great experience, Dan!

    Very good! Solid information backed up by the onscreen examples, Dan handling the Q&A as we went along and the handout - key to watching, listening and referring to later on. Positive, can do encouragement.

    This one sounds like just what I'm looking for, but I'm already taking a workshop that day.
