The second photography workshop is complete! With two in attendance [meet Alina and Renee], it gave us more time to spend with them individually and to directly address their questions and to strengthen their weaknesses. We covered an abundance of material, learned a lot, and stretched ourselves to become better at the art of photography - not to mention making new friends!Read More
Teaching this photography workshop was more fun than I had expected! With 5 attendees, I was able to help each of them and to answer their questions. Being able to guide and to help others in understanding how to use their cameras is what I love to do. After years of tutorials and experimenting, it was a pleasure to be able to share helpful bits of advice to the workshop attendees.Read More
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.Read More
