Introduction to Photography
Do you have a new DSLR camera? Or a camera that you know has so many options you just don’t know where to start? Are you shooting in aperture priority but your images aren’t coming out the way you want? Do people tell you that you take great pictures but you want to be better? Introduction Photography Workshops starts at the very beginning. We start by teaching you the basics of the camera functions, then we get to the fun hands-on training part! After a small information session, we’ll take you out on a photo safari for hands-on learning. We’ll answer all your questions as you start applying your new introduction photography knowledge in the field. We’ll provide the models and the amazing locations, you provide the energy and your own camera to this awesome Introduction Photography Workshop! For some examples of our work, and the the images from students, check out the Introduction Photography Workshops blog.
The goal for the Intro workshop is to get you comfortable with you camera and shooting in manual mode. The first hour of this 3-hour workshop is going over those seemingly daunting camera settings you’ve heard about but don’t know how to use. We explain everything with visuals in an open question environment. A minimum of 3 professionals are within arm’s length to help you get your camera prepared for manual shooting. We like to make it as close to a one-on-one session as we can. At the end of the lecture we roam the outdoor classroom, the beautiful, historic Barrington Hall, and turn words to action while photographing real models. The professionals will walk you through their camera’s manual settings and explain different types of lighting. This is a great opportunity to shoot as much as you want and explore your camera’s settings while having the guidance of professionals close by. You’re in the right spot!
