Photography Workshops

I luv sharing my love of photography.  It’s so fun seeing students trying to understand the confusing fact that a large number means a small opening and vise versa.  It’s the moment it “clicks” in your brain that starts the sleepless nights going over the numbers and what creative results come from each variable combination choice that’s made in the exposure triangle.  I try to read a lot, gleaning from others as to the best way to explain it, so that someone will finally “get it.”  Some are visual learners, and some are auditory, but I’m always working on it.

This week started the first of four lessons for a handful of new camera owners willing to take the time to dive into the buttons and menus in order to learn a new craft, experience the joy of photography, and see photographs in a whole new way.  I’m excited for them and wish them the excited feeling I had the day the light bulb went on nearly thirty-three years ago.  Wow!!!  Time flies.

Here are a few shots I took from the first two days.  Please come back and check to see if I added new ones to this post in the following weeks.

Today, we concentrated on portraits, lighting, and flash.  We had a great time with Jacquelyn, who is always so willing to help me out during my workshops and classes.  Thanks, Jacquelyn!!

The last of the workshop/beginning class are up.  Thanks Emilie, and Steve for helping us out.  We had a great time.  Can’t wait to do it again. For more info, please visit my website:
