Beginner's Photography Workshop, Sunday Feb 20th. Photography Class, St Francisville LA

Did you get a new "fancy" camera for Christmas, but now you need to learn how to use it? Check out our Sunday afternoon Beginner's Photography Workshop on February 20th, 2011. It's designed for people who have digital SLR cameras (the "fancy" digital cameras) but want to know how to use them better.

Register HERE.
Sunday February 20th, 2-6 pm, $90

During the first half of the workshop, Tara will cover the basics of how to take better pictures, with an emphasis on photographing people. This includes understanding and using your camera's capabilities, learning about equipment that can make your photos go from good to great, using the best lighting situations, choosing locations, and how to use a few Adobe Photoshop tricks to make your pictures what you want them to be. You will also take home a booklet of all class notes to review after you go home and forget everything!

During the second half of the workshop, all class attendees will go outside and photograph actual people outdoors on the grounds of the beautiful Victorian of the Felicianas.
This is an opportunity to apply what you learned in the classroom setting during the previous two hours. Tara will show you how to find locations, see and use available light, decide when to use flash, how to frame a picture, pose your subject, and avoid common mistakes, and then she will give you a few assignments to practice. You will get time to practice taking better pictures, ask questions, and brainstorm with fellow attendees. Models will be provided for you to photograph.

Cameras are not required, but you will learn more if you have one there in front of you. Recommended cameras should have at least controls for shutter speed and aperture.

A light snack will be provided.
