Fancy Camera Workshop – less than one month away!


Yay! The next workshop is scheduled for September 29. So excited!

If you are not familiar with the Fancy Camera Workshop, read on for more details.

WHAT WILL BE COVERED?

Camera settings, lens choice, focal point and compositional elements will be discussed at length during the morning portion of our day together.
After lunch (provided by the workshop), we will spend a few hours practicing what you learned during a live outdoor photoshoot. I will be shooting too, sharing my camera settings and my thought process behind each image and answering your questions. Everyone will also have a chance to direct the models and compose their own image. We will then look at our images together and answer any final questions. I will briefly share my favorite Photoshop techniques as well.

Here’s an overview of our day together:

9:00 Introductions

The Technical Stuff (manual exposure, camera settings, focal points, focal length, etc)

The Fun Stuff (compositional elements)

Equipment: a little show and tell of lenses, cameras, memory cards, and useful gadgets.

12:30 LUNCH (included) and Review

1:30 Live photoshoot

4:30 Downloading of images and a mini Photoshop (CS5) lesson

5:30 Sharing of Images/Critique/Q&A

7:00 The End

WHO IS IT FOR?

Previous attendees have included students who were just taking their camera out of the box as well as those who own a photography business. There’s a maximum of 12 attendees per workshop to ensure everyone gets individual attention and can learn at their own pace.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

If you have a fancy camera but feel like your images are still lacking the wow factor or if you’ve been reading online tutorials and “pinning” photography tips on pinterest, but still feel like you don’t completely get it, this is your opportunity to feel confident with your camera and make some pinterest worthy images ;)

WHERE WILL THE WORKSHOP BE HELD?

The workshop will take place in Chandler, AZ
