The following workshops are available for one-on-one mentoring or for offering to groups of interested photographers. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
This workshop will take participants through the basics of digital photography – camera settings including shutter speed, aperture, automatic and manual settings, white balance, ISO, file formats, exposure compensation, as well as camera accessories (flash, filters). Usually offered as a one day workshop, with field work.
Time to prepare for your summer or fall travels! We’ll cover trip preparation, equipment, compositional techniques, tips for taking great travel photographs, and how to share those photos for everyone’s enjoyment! All camera formats welcomed but you need to know basic camera operations.
Learn the basics of using your iPhone camera for something other than selfies! (Not that there's anything wrong with selfies!!!) We'll examine the four basic modes - camera, video, square, and panorama - plus focus and exposure settings. And then we'll examine several of the best photo processing apps to take your photos to the next level.
Learn the basic organizing and photo development features of this powerful and popular photo software. If you are undecided about Lightroom, its available for a free thirty-day download from Adobe - perfect for the workshop.
The differences between a "snapshot" and a "photograph" are focused on the two C's: Composition and Creativity. In this workshop, we will explore the elements of composition, photographic rules and the breaking of the rules, and ways of sparking and engaging your creativity. All camera formats welcomed, though you should have some familiarity with your camera's settings.
A further exploration of creative photography including illustrating emotions, the painterly aspects of photography, environmental portraiture. Ideally follows up on the Photographic Composition and Creativity workshop, but can be taken independently as well.
I offer mentoring sessions with two different price structures.
One 75 minute session: $75
Three 75 minute sessions: $200
NOTE: These make great gifts to the photographers (or would-be photographers) in your family or among your friends! Gift certificates available.
