Learn your DSLR II

Learn Your DSLR is a morning photography workshop on the essential skills of great photography. The lesson unfolds on a stroll from the FDR Memorial to the Jefferson Memorial. 

This 2 1/2-hour photo tour is ideal for a photography beginner to enthusiast.

It is limited to only 10 people, so everyone who attends can get lots of personal instruction.


On our photo tours, I'm still finding lots of our members asking questions about how to operate their DSLRs. It's hard to do your questions justice when we are all setting up for our own photos.

This will be a workshop with instruction, opportunity for you to practice what we learned, and lots of feedback while you are shooting. Bring your cameras and your questions.

I normally teach this photo tour here for $79, but I'm offering it for one day at a special price to our Meetup members. 

What you will learn:

• Anatomy of your camera - what do all those buttons do?

• How do choose the right shooting mode for any situation.

• How does your camera measure light, and how can you correct it when it is wrong?

• How do you use creative settings for portraits, landscapes, sports and other situations?

More benefits:

• Maximum instructor to student ration of 1:10

• Individual coaching as you work on the techniques

• E-book after photo tour with the principles covered during instruction

    Wish I could make it but it conflicts with an event that is a once in a while thing in the area and my heart is to attend that, when it's over I won't have the opportunity again. Sorry.
