Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson

I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

Taking pictures is the first part of the journey - the second is editing them to adjust exposure, saturation, contrast, etc. I work with Photoshop and can teach you how to tune your images and fix problems like lens dust, harsh shadows, or face shine in flash pictures.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. We will go over: how to use your camera in different modes, how to control shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. what gear you should get, lenses and more. The ultimate goal is for you to be shooting in full manual mode, and then bring your pictures onto the computer and edit them! Every week, I will give you image shooting assignments and we will do weekly mini critiques. Once you feel comfortable shooting with your camera, we will get into more technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and proofing. I am a "Canon guy", so that brand of camera is my specialty! However, I have worked with students with all camera brands. Just an extra plus if you have Canon! I have been teaching Photography on Takelessons for 4 years now, and I can't wait to see you in class!

Sam is very knowledgeable and knows how to explain and make it easy .
Christy Johnson
I learned a lot my first class. Excited to see how much I learn!
Jill
Sam is not only knowledgeable about Photoshop...he's an EXPERT! What made my experience particularly pleasant is Sam's degree of patience with my learning speed and providing simple tips and insights on what certain functions "really" mean.
I was just not understanding some of the terms and functions...Sam broke it down in "beginner" terms for me. Which is what I needed.
Yup! I'll take more Photoshop lessons from Sam!

I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time."

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
