I am so excited to officially announce my new course "Click 101! An Introduction to Digital Photography"! This is something I have been planning for a long time and have been waiting for the right time to offer it. If you own a DSLR and would love to get off of "Auto Mode" and learn how to use your camera manually, being in control of your settings, and want to learn how to document the things you love the most with your digital camera using natural light then this course is perfect for you!
The Click 101! course includes three group sessions. Below are the details of what you can expect from each session:
Session One: One two-hour introduction session to gain knowledge of using your Digital SLR camera on "Manual Mode". We will meet at my home in Lockport, NY for a round table, hands on session. My goal is to get you comfortable with understanding your camera and being in control of your photography using manual settings. It's time to learn how to really use that gorgeous camera you own and get off of "Auto" mode! I will have a Click 101! Intro to Digital Photography course guide for you to keep. Refreshments will also be provided.
Sessions Two and Three: 90-minute on-location sessions outdoors. We will work together as a group at an outdoor location in Lockport, NY where I will show you some tips and tricks to use toward photographing beautiful natural-light portraits using the basic camera knowledge from Session One and by applying the guidelines I will share with you about available light, composition and posing.
Session One is Saturday, July 1st from 10am to Noon.
Session Two is Monday, July 10th from 7pm to 8:30pm (Rain date Wednesday July 12th)
Session Three is Monday, July 24th from 7pm to 8:30pm (Rain date Wednesday July 26th)
All class participants will have the opportunity to join a private group on Facebook administered by me to continue learning from each other.
The fee for this course is $375. $175 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. The remaining fee would be due at the time of the first session. There are only 5 spots available for the July course. Early birds can save $50 by booking their seat before May 1st.
Already know your camera and off of "Auto Mode", or interested in Click 101! on a one-on-one basis? I am also offering one-on-one mentoring sessions beginning in August 2017.
One-on-one sessions are best for individuals that want to dive deep into the in's and out's of learning their digital camera with the interest of one day being a professional photographer. We will start wherever you need to based upon your skill level. I can offer you the knowledge of using your tools, your camera and your lenses, as well as other important parts of photography like composition, light, and posing. On the business side of things I can share with you tips about building a portfolio, building relationships with clients, selling your art, and so much more. I am happy to design the one-on-one session to meet your needs. What you learn from me all depends on what you want to invest in with me. One-on-one sessions begin at $225/hour.
Please email me directly to register your spot for the Click 101! group sessions or for one-on-one mentoring. I look forward to hearing from you!
I can't wait to help you grow your love of digital photography!
