i’m really tickled ( & sorta nervous ) to be leading a photography workshop ( twice on saturday)!!
let me explain my heart for this workshop. primarily i want to encourage YOU! with YOUR skills & YOUR camera! encourage YOU to document your world & your legacy by becoming a story teller through YOUR photography.
~encourage you to use, whatever equipment you own, and capture your life, your everyday, your people who you love, every single day. to dust off your “fancy, i use it only for life’s big events like holidays, vacations & graduations” camera, become friends with the owners manual–which will explain every single switch & setting of YOUR camera–and create ART. i believe everyone of us can do this! whether via an iphone or a fancy canon 70D and a lens that’s worth more than your car. YOU can create memories and document your legacy, of your world, simply & beautifully!
~explain what it means to find & capture the light
~fun & super simple tips on how to photograph your little ones who are quite active and wiggly as well as your big ones who aren’t always excited to have their photo taken
~introduce you to some resources that can help you turn a simple capture into truly a piece of art
(on friday afternoon i’ll lead a hands-on, walk the grounds workshop. limited number availability.)
let me tell you what my workshop is not. i will not be explaining every single switch & setting on your nikon ( i shoot canon & i don’t know a thing about nikon) or your film camera or all the ins & outs of owning a dslr. as i mentioned earlier, you have an instruction manual with your camera that will fully explain those details to you much more clear than i could ever attempt. which is also the number advice i give everyone regarding their gear. i’m a creative with pretty minimal technical knowledge. a self taught photographer who has never taken a single course on photography. i tell you that because if i can create a beautiful image like this, on my phone, so can you! ( if you’re already shooting on full manual, this is probably not the course for you but there are several other workshops saturday that i think you’ll love!)–i say all that with a smile & a large dose of humility!
so please come join us for a sweet time together in august!!!
may i ask you a favor? if you were to come to a workshop such as this, i’d LOVE to hear what sorta questions you’d ask. if you have a second and could leave one or 50 in my comments i’d be ever so grateful. i might be working on a little project for the blog as well!
