It’s workshop season! Are you ready?? I’ve got two really great programs in the next month that I think are fabulous! I have noticed that in the past I would always have a mix of individuals attending a workshop.
There’s the mom who only really wants to know how to take all of those in-between pictures of life. She loves having family sessions done, but let’s face it… You can’t really have one done every week! Sometimes she has even received a DSLR for her birthday or Christmas and wants to learn more about how to work the camera instead of the camera working her.
Then there is the budding photographer who just needs some guidance, motivation, and to fine tune some of her skills. I get it. I’ve been there and probably always will be because I LOVE learning new techniques and growing. That is what drew me to photography (and the fact that I was the mom above, hahaha!!!). I want to be in control of situations and create moments that are also natural. I want to know how my images are going to turn out instead of letting my camera decide for me and having work that is all over the place in style. I want to do as much as I can in-camera and at that moment instead of slaving away in front of a computer screen. Why? Because I’m a photographer, not an editor. Editing drains me big time, so anything I can do to minimize that gives me MORE time to do what I love. ( Side note:: I’m not a good editor. I don’t want to be a good editor. I want to be a good photographer. Give me an “AMEN!!!” if you understand.)
Below are the two workshops for February! One for the mom and one for the new photographer. Ready to get your learn on???
1) Mom’s 101 Photography Workshop – January 31st, 2015 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
This is for the mom who wants to know how to take better photos of her child(ren)! No need for fancy cameras, any will do, but I will be going over the basics of how to work your DSLR camera! You will receive all kinds of tips and tricks on how to grab those wonderful captures, organizing the digitals into easy to find folders, editing apps for both computer and phone, and how to get the best prints for your money! This workshop will be $99. The early bird rate is $49! Sign up with a friend and the ticket price for both is $129. Early bird rate for signing up with a friend is only $69!

2) Just Start :: A Workshop for New Photographers – February 21st, 2015 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
This workshop is for the beginner photographer who needs just a little guidance in basic photography (posing, camera functions, and cropping), editing and workflow (get pretty and ORGANIZED!), and website help (Showit or WordPress). We will have a model for a session and each photographer will get 3 head shot photos for use on your website and social media! I know you are waiting for everything to come together perfectly before you put yourself out there when all you REALLY need to do is just start. This workshop is $250. The early bird rate is only $175!
