This  workshop style class is perfect for beginner photographers (Ages 16+). This class does require a DSLR/Mirrorless camera. (Which means the settings can be adjusted manually). Any camera brand will work, I prefer Canon and recommend the Rebel line for beginners. Class includes a printed workbook + video recordings of each lesson. Check out the curriculum overview below.

You will learn how to handle multiple lighting situations including the best time to shoot, and how to handle uneven lighting.  You will learn how to style and group objects together. You will have the chance to bring items from home to photograph inside on a white poster board (creating flatlays) and outside styled on a stool/small table. 

Lesson 4: Portrait Photography (Indoor/Outdoor)

My 12 year old daughter was interested in learning photography and inspired me to start offering classes for kids. When parents saw these classes, they started asking if I did adult classes, so I decided to start offering both. I have my degree in Elementary Education but never formally went into teaching. I became a nanny while I was in College and ended up Homeschooling their son for Kindergarten. These nanny kids were my models as I got into photography and started my own business. 12 years and 2 kiddos later, I'm a homeschooling mama, running 2 businesses and love that I get to combine my love for educating and photography into one. I can't wait to come alongside you and help ignite a lifelong passion for photography.
