Photography Class: Foundational Photography.

Want to take your photography to the next level? Are you a beginner or an intermediate photographer with a real passion for taking great images? Love making people "ooh and aww" over the images in your scrapbooks and framed on your walls? Want to gain artistic control over your images by understanding your camera rather than always being at its mercy? Maybe you're even thinking about going pro. . . If any of those descriptions make your heart sing, then this class is for you.

In class we'll discuss:

  • manual camera settings
  • seeing and understanding light and how it affects your photography
  • exposure
  • intermediate - advanced creative composition
  • after each class, 15-20min, I'll be available for q&a: I'm happy to talk about anything under the sun. This will be particularly useful to those of you who are interested in talking business (ie how I got started, what I wish I'd known etc.) as we will not be discussing that in depth during class time.
  • Regular classes: April 2st, 9th, and 16th, 8-9pm.
  • Bonus: come shadow me on a real shoot! Observe me in action. Saturday April 17th 9:00am. I'll think aloud as I conduct a real portrait session, to be followed by an on site q&a and further discussion is available once images from the shoot are posted on the blog.
  • Class Loaction: Laie: TBA
  • Cost for this workshop is $160. A $100 non-refundable retainer is due upfront to reserve your space and balance is due in full at least 1 week prior to the first class. Class will cap at 20 students so register today.

Save $50 by enrolling in both PhotoMoms and Foundational Photography simultaneously! Total due will be $220 rather than the retail price of $270.

Sounds like a great course for beginners focusing on exposure and light. These are so important yet often overlooked with the auto everything point and shoot camera.

Hope the classes go well for you.

If you do similar classes next Spring, I will honestly fly to Hawaii to take them.

Ha ha ha! Sounds good!

Actually, we're thinking about setting up a class for the next time I'm in Utah as there seem to be quite a few interested from that area. So you may be able to save a dollar or two on the flight :).

I was wondering if you've ever considered teaching an online course? Sounds like you'd have lots of participants (me being one of them). I've taken several photography courses online (including projects and being able to share photos with my online classmates). It would be even better taking it from someone like you who has such a unique spin on photography. Hope you'll consider it for a down the road project!

It's definitely in the works. I'm not sure how far down the road it will be, but It's a comin'!
