I’m going for it! I’m going to TRY teaching a photography class. Now this comes as a new challenge for me since I am a self-proclaimed terrible teacher (just ask my husband). But being a mom, I know that taking good photos of our kids is very important to us moms. So I thought I would try my hand at sharing some of the things I’ve learned.
I’m going to do two separate classes, each one costs $35. They will be covering the same material. One will be from 6-8 pm May 14th, Wine and Cheese will be served. The other will be May 27 from 10-12 in the morning, coffee and scones will be served. Both of the classes will be held at Ten Arrows Ranch, address is 1250 McCaffery Rd in Bigfork.
I’ll start with an open discussion and instructional that ends with a Q&A time, then for the second hour we’ll take photos of our crazy kids. During the instructional part, there will be childcare available for $5/family. You don’t have to bring your kids but I wanted to have it as an option so you can use them for practice during the photo taking part.
This is a beginner’s class for mom’s (or dad’s!)…if you have a big expensive camera, bring it! But if you don’t, bring whatever you have.
What I will be teaching on:
- Working with kids (especially your own)
- Choosing a Location
- BASIC camera settings and MY recommended shooting mode for beginners
What I won’t be teaching on:
- How to shoot in Manual
- How to edit your photos (i.e. Photoshop…that would be like a 1 year course, sad but true
I am limiting the class to 10 people at each class, first come, first served, so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up!
There is not ONE BIG SECRET to taking great photos. There are a lot of little techniques and a whole LOT of practice that goes into taking good photos.
At the end of my little class, don’t expect to be transformed into the next Ansel Adams, but I do hope that you will be taking better photos than you were the day before.
No, you can’t expect to take photos from a point and shoot that are as good as from a professional DSLR, but you can still take great photos with a point and shoot…I love this photo of my little girl, this was shot with my $200 point and shoot. Yes! I own a point and shoot, because I can’t carry around my big camera all day long!
