Learn your DSLR

Learn Your DSLR is an afternoon photography workshop on the essential skills of great photography. The lesson unfolds on a stroll around the National Monuments. 

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.


Why?

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

• Get feedback on our Facebook page

      Hi Lynford. I realize I didn't receive the guide you mentioned. I assume it would have been sent to my hotmail account but if it was from your name I don't see anything.

    • Lynford M.

      It was sent to the email you use for Meetup. If you send me an email to [masked], I'll reply with it to you directly.

      Hello Lynford,

      Not sure what happened with your email but I have not received the guide. If it is a large file not sure if maybe it was blocked by Hotmail. I also double checked my junk file.
      Here is an alternate address [masked].

    • Lynford M.

      I'm sorry, Karen. I just emailed it to that address. Please reply if/when you receive it.

    Excellent Workshop! Lynford's style was clear and straight forward - easy to understand and put into practice immediately. He was there to teach explain assist and answer questions. Met some great people too!

    The class was great! Thank you for offering it, Lynford. I needed to learn the fundamentals and your instruction helped me understand it easily. I also know what all those buttons on my camera are for. And it was a beautiful day to top it all off.

    Hi Lyn, I noticed that u having a wait list so i thought I should mention that I have a bit of issue right now which I've been watching and as of today has not improved as much as I had hoped. I intend to coming but there is the possibility I may not be able to keep up with you. I'm letting you know in case you may wish to give someone else a chance to sign up. I'm coming I just may or may not be able to stay the whole time. Thanks :) Sorry about grammar darn cell phone!
