Online Photography Workshop: Beginner/Intermediate

Do you have a film or digital SLR but don't know how to use it? Do you want to learn how to shoot in manual and how to nail your exposure every time? Do you want to push your photography to the next level and learn how to capture more artistic and meaningful photographs? If so, then this is the workshop for you.

Workshop Description:

The workshop is a 6 week online course that will cover the basics of photography (and much more). Topics will include shooting fundamentals such as exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance. I will also teach you how to shoot in manual mode so that you can stop being frustrated with the images you get from auto mode and start to get the results you want from your camera!

But don't worry, it isn't all about the technical stuff! Much of the workshop is also focused on creativity, style, composition and lighting. I will even teach you how to get those sparkly eyes in your photographs! And, when I am teaching you the fundamentals and the technical stuff, I do it in a way that is understandable and fun!

Throughout the course I will also share my own personal opinions and "rules of thumb" as to how I do things and how I get the shots I get. This is your chance to get a peek into my brain and how/why I do what I do. In a nutshell - I am teaching in 6 weeks what it has taken me years to learn and figure out the hard way!

There will also be an exclusive message board for class members where you can share your photos, critique each other, share ideas and ask questions. This is where you will post your assignments to get feedback from me. Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of the workshop is the chance to get personalized and individual attention each week! I am here to help you through each and every lesson!

About the Instructor:

Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I have spent years practicing and learning - trying to absorb and figure out as much as I can. Over time photography naturally evolved into a business for me and now I feel blessed that I can share my talents with so many others. I have a candid and straight-forward approach to teaching in which I take out the fluff and give it to you straight. I am very open about sharing how I create the images that I do. My goal is to take the guesswork out of it so you can start capturing those magical images too!
