If you are ready to learn how to take better photos, but you don't want to get bogged down with all the technical stuff, then you're going to love this group. We are not just a fun social photo group, we are also serious about improving the quality of the photos by focusing on what matters most.
This unique meetup group is for you if:
You own a camera and you'd really like to use it more, but you're not really sure where to start and what to do. Perhaps you are ready to take that camera off the auto setting so you have more creative options?
Maybe you've taken a photography workshop before or tried picking up one of those thick, boring books, but you quickly got overwhelmed and overloaded with the technical stuff. Or you have tried to learn online but found it difficult to apply what you learned out in the real world?
You don't intend on becoming a "master photographer", but you'd like to learn how to take better pictures of things you find interesting. That could be nature, people, landscape, architecture, etc. Whatever you feel drawn to. We are a learning group and each class builds specific skills to improve your photography. You also receive constructive critique after class to help you get better and better.
I personally lead each workshop so you receive clear, simple instructions to quickly build your skills and creative confidence. I have a masters degree in education, worked at Polaroid for 15 years, and 20 years of experience training people to see creatively. During each class you also receive handouts so you can practice the skills on your own.
You would like to explore related topics like creative photography and mindfulness? This unique approach encourages you to slow down, take fewer photos of higher quality by experiencing the beauty of your life.
And the best part? The techniques you'll learn will have an immediate impact on your photography. You'll see an instant improvement and you'll also have an opportunity to get positive and constructive feedback for your work in a supportive environment.
If that sounds good to you, then I invite you to join our group. You'll learn a lot, meet some warm and wonderful people, and have lots of fun while you improve your photography. I'm looking forward to meeting you in person soon.
All I ask is PLEASE INCLUDE A REAL PICTURE OF YOUR FACE for your profile description when you join us. I can't find you in a crowd when we meetup if you use a photo of your cat:)
You can get started learning some of the practices by exploring my new book.
