  • Learning the ropes with your new camera 

    This is a lecture and a hands on workshop in a real photography studio.

    Ok so you have a new camera that you bought yourself or received one for a gift but for what ever reason that you have your new camera for, wouldn't it be nice to learn more? Would you like to get out of the manual mode and get those creative pictures? Well this class is for you, For instance, how to set up a still life in a typical living room light, and (presuming your camera supports it), try it in various automatic and manual modes, changing settings like white balance, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity setting, and so on.

    Shooting In RAW & JPEG

    If your camera supports it, try shooting in raw format rather than JPEG, or in the simultaneous RAW+JPEG setting. Raw is the 21st century equivalent of developing your own film, and not only does it help you produce higher-quality results, it can really educate your eyes about compression artifacts, noise patterns, exposure adjustments and how to read a histogram. When using RAW you most likely will need to buy software; though most cameras that support raw will have their own software in the box of your new camera, it can frequently be confusing to use or to get good results and may only serve to frustrate you. 

    We will be different items (like flower to people) in and out of the studio to learn in different environments. We also might do different locations(Field Trips)

    In these monthly classes we will be learning about lenses and what ones you might need for the subjects your interested in.

    • ISO

    • Shutter Speed 

    • F-Stop

    • EXIF data

    • White Balance (using a Gray Card)

    • Software (editing)

    • And So On...

    • Class time is about 2-3 hours long and about every third week in every month like a Wednesday Night or Saturday Morning. We will try to have guess speakers from time to time to make these classes interesting and new industry product to see and maybe test out.

    This workshop  is great for kids and Adults who love capturing things around them and learning their camera and getting out of the Automatic Mode. We can do one on one classes in the studio or on  location, we work with groups as well like the Boy Scouts, mom's Groups and so on. If you have any questions please email me at [masked]
