A Beginners DSLR Class

Do you have a DSLR Camera? Do you use it..he he? Is it always on Auto? Do you want to get the most out of your camera…it is why you bought a nice one isn’t it?

I’m so excited to announce that I will be teaching a Beginners DSLR class. The classes are not designed to replace the need for professional portraits done by a photographer – instead they are designed to help moms (and dads and teens) learn how to get more out of their camera and candids so they can capture those everyday moments with more clarity and style.

A whole day of Photography with Jess 🙂 cuz I’m so cool!

What you can expect to get out this BOOT Camp for learning your DSLR:

*shooting out of auto mode and into manual…if your still not comfortable enough with manual then we will learn AV mode and TV mode.

*learn about exposure, ISO (and WHY its SO important) aperture, & shutter speed…all of them work together to get a good exposure.

*we’ll talk about perspective, posing (or not posing) & light.

*we will also get into some basic editing in Photoshop such as using textures and layers to enhance your images.

*I shoot in RAW so I will talk a little about that as well.

*we will practice photographing with models.

*we will talk about lenses…my favorite part 🙂

And during that time we will take a much needed break and have a lunch (provided by me…not that I will be making it but its included)

What you will take home from the class:

*a reference/notebook…so that you will remember all that you have learned

*a virtual swag bag with money saving coupons and freebies.

*best of all a private FB shared group of all classes. Why is this so awesome? Because we will post photos we’ve taken and everyone will tell you how awesome you are!!!!! And you get feedback from me… and that’s really cool!

*$25 off  a session booked with me.

You ask? When is this BOOT Camp?

2nd try at my concept.

I had to do another try with Elyse…had to work on the “deer in the headlight thing she was giving me” and I brought the pinwheels (not exactly what I meant with them but they will do) then forgot the outfit I wanted her to wear. You see concepts don’t work for me.

Its not enough to stop me though. I’ll get it.

 

My try at a concept

 

 

I see photos all the time that have a theme, cute props, basically the works. I think to myself “adorable.” I could totally do that. Well, I tell ya its not my cup of tea but, I’m determined to figure out MY style of a concept shoot. Its actually a goal of mine this year. I set out to do this concept and well, I forgot a lot of the props that I wanted to use…it was a little stressful because I was dumb enough to use my own kids. No, actually they were angels the best they’ve ever been for a shoot but “I” was just stressed…more on that later.

I saw the idea of a newspaper backdrop on Pinterest. I also made these pinwheels that I wanted to hang but totally forgot them. And then I wanted a different outfit for Bryn and Gabe…but it works. And Elyse kept looking at me like a Deer in headlights…is that how you say it? She said, she had to do it to keep her eyes open.
