Out of the Box Photography skills Upgrade Course

  • Jan 19, 2014 · 11:00 AM

Hi everyone,

Time to kick of the new year with an introductory DSLR refresher class, designed for the anyone who wants to gain better knowledge in Digital Photography.

A hands on approach to the basic essentials of digital photography. This is a 2 Hour class and introductory workshop, priced at only at $40.00 

Your camera has many  more capabilities beyond the automatic functions, let us help you understand and unlock the power of your DSLR. This workshop is an excellent investment into your ability to capture special and memorable moments in the future. This takes the guesswork out of photography, train your eyes and mind to take better pictures. This means less editing time for moments you can't get back.

In this fast paced class we will have you in full manual mode and off of Automatic. When you understand how to shoot in full manual, you truly have full control over your camera. My goal as an instructor is to give you a full understanding of how your camera thinks, why it chooses to expose images the way it does. We will also talk about focusing, a very critical element that will punch your images, and bring you far above your current shooting level. 

Let us help you build the foundations you need to succeed. Your camera is an extension of your creativity, knowing your equipment will not only help you create well balanced images but will also help you know when to “break the rules” to capture something spectacular. Your creativity is the limit when you have mastered the basics. 

Bring your DSLR camera and a notebook or device for taking notes. 

Reserve your seat today. 

We will be covering all of this and more in this very informative class.

    Hi Everyone, As an added bonus, Attendees to this workshop will get a free BTS (behind the scenes) look at a very interesting creative shoot. Composite shooting from beginning all the way through to post. I will be shooting 4 male models who will be in full sports gear, for an editorial submission. The look will be hard and edgy lighting. After shooting the models , i will also be doing some quick headshots for the models and doing a post production run through to see the finished work. Keep in mind that this is a actual shoot segment that you get the opportunity to view. Very exciting opportunity. There is no extra charge for this mini Workshop.

    Hope to see you on the 19th.

    (PS I have this same event posted on other sites so when I have a total of 10 students from ALL sites then I will cut off registration, book early to hold your place)
