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!

If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography. - The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs. - Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial. - Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations. - Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs that convey messages powerful enough to open a mind or convey just about anything you want to communicate. You don’t have to be a professional photojournalist to get out there and take some great shots
I've been in love with photography since my early teens. In my experience, three things keep the process fun and exciting: 1) identifying four distinct quadrants in each shot before you click the shutter, 2) taking several shots of the same thing, and 3) picking out the best ones. Though I primarily shoot and publish albums of landscapes, I can help you become a proficient portrait photographer as well. Whatever your favorite subject(s) happen to be, I'll show you how to capture them with enthusiastic grace.
In this class, you will learn the basics of photography, including posing, lighting, styling, and editing. Show off your beautiful models with either your phone camera or a DSLR. I will also teach you how to switch over from auto settings to achieving stunning images by going manual on your camera
