Intro to Photography
March 24, 2019
This is an interactive & hands-on workshop for you to learn all the building blocks of mastering your camera and taking a great photo. Throughout our 4 hours together, I will guide you through the both the technical and creative aspects of capturing the perfect photo through shooting your camera fully manual.
Once I have introduced you to how you can best use your camera and achieve beautiful photos, we will jump right into practicing. We will spend the second half of the workshop shooting a variety of flat-lays and a styled subject to explore different lighting and posing.
This workshop is perfect for the business owner wanting to achieve beautiful content & product images, for the mama trying to capture her kiddos & everyday life and the aspiring photographer picking up their first camera.
Want to learn about editing? This workshop will be partnered with the Lightroom 101 workshop hosted on March 31 to provide attendees with full process guidance from shooting to editing for achieving beautiful imagery.
