Today was a great day! I had the privilege to teach/share some basic photography tips and lessons in downtown Matthews, NC. We were hoping for a sunny spring day, but it decided to be wet and cloudy. But hey, a photographer can make good use of rain and clouds (enter: macro shots of water drops and use of diffused light) :).
Loved seeing the class be creative as they used different functions on their cameras, and learned that the green automatic option isn't the only option to capture a great photograph. I will follow up with a post my favorite images that the class took, and share what I liked and critiqued about each particular shot.
I am planning another workshop for this July, and would love to have some feedback from you if you would like to attend, and stay posted for updates!
And a huge thanks to my wonderful girlfriend, Jennifer, who helped teach and provide fantastic assistance with the workshop. This is my favorite image of the day that attendee Ashlyn Harrison captured in a candid moment.
