So many people have asked me about photography classes so I think I'm going to add one to the classes I'm teaching at Blissful Living Studio. People always seem to ask the same questions...about lighting, composition, post-editing, etc. So I decided what the heck, I'll do a class to explain what I do with all that stuff.
We'll go over lighting, because I think getting optimal lighting is the very most important thing in taking a good picture. We'll also go over a really basic explanation of the f-stop, shutter speed, ISO etc...easy steps to take photos in manual mode, because it really is EASY if you know just a few basic things to get started. And with digital photography I think it makes such a big difference to take pictures manually.
I want people to bring their cameras and actually take pictures to practice what they're learning, so I thought I'd bring a couple of my girls who are good posers and have people actually practice taking pictures where they think they could get good lighting, etc. Then we'll upload all our pictures to my laptop and go over composition and what we can do with post editing software.
So does this sound interesting and like something people would be interested in? I'm just curious how much interest it would have and also whether I would be covering the majority of things people would want to know with the description above. Let me know if there are other things you think I should cover as well. I'm thinking the date for the class would be June 25th. If people are really interested I'll do another one in the Fall, because I know a lot of people are out of town during the summer.
Note: This class wouldn't be a class on how to use your specific camera…every camera is so different on which buttons you push for what. We would be focusing on what’s the same for every camera… understanding the basics of lighting and composition to get great pictures.
So...let me know if you're interested!
