Women’s Photography Workshops

**Update 5/26/14 – due to overwhelming response this workshop, plus the second we opened up sold out in 48 hours!  Please contact us to be added to the list for future workshops! Next date will likely be in September!**

I am trying to do more of what I love this year. I love teaching women how to use their cameras better and talking about photography. I am super excited to offer two different photography workshops plus private mentoring and portfolio feedback.

Photography Workshops for Women

Photography Workshops for Women

The first workshop will be titled – “What Does This Button Do?” an intro to learning the creative controls on a camera such as shutter speed, aperture, exposure and shooting on manual and camera/lens choice. There will also be giggling and a high probability of me telling a story that likely should have never been repeated.

The second workshop will be titled, “Simple Studio Lighting and Portraits” an introduction to studio portraits. Learn  DIY studio basics, simple lighting, basic posing and equiptment. There will be giggling and more stories as well as a 90% chance that I will trip over a lighting stand and swear. Not necessarily in that order.

Both workshops will be held on one day at our Belpre, Ohio studio. You are invited to attend one or both workshops. It is not a requirement that you attend the first workshop to attend the second, but we will not be covering the same material and it is expected that you have a basic understanding of how to use your camera on manual to get the most out of the “Simple Studio Lighting and Portraits” workshop.

We will also be offering private mentoring covering topics such as camera basics, photography business, marketing, branding and photography for business owners/bloggers. Mentoring begins at $350 for three hours.

WHAT DOES THIS BUTTON DO?

How and when to use your camera on manual.

Do you have a knack or love of photography? Do you often feel like if you just knew a little bit more about your camera you could get better results? Do you need to take better photographs for business or social media use? This three hour workshop will give you a great start! We will cover the following topics, plus more in a super casual all women setting.

Topics we will cover:

  • How and when to shoot on manual (when not to shoot on manual)
  • Metering – How to measure light
  • Better Exposure using your histogram
  • Color balance – Is it really that important?
  • Ways Light Can Enter Your Lens – Shutter and Aperture
  • Depth of Field
  • What the heck is bokeh?
  • Using a reflector – Finding the light
  • Camera Choice/Lens Choice/Gear Choice – or why you shouldn’t use lack of equipment as an excuse.
  • How to evaluate your images

We’ll also cover such topics as where to purchase gear, what camera I recommend, what gear I carry and pretty much anything else that comes up.

Cost for this workshop is $60

SIMPLE STUDIO LIGHTING & PORTRAITS

An introduction to studio lights and portraits.

We’ll also cover such topics as where to purchase gear, what camera I recommend, what gear I carry and pretty much anything else that comes up. We will end this workshop with a live shoot where you will watch me work with a model, using the techniques we just covered and you will also have a chance to photograph the model or observe as others photograph her. Space is limited to 7 women.
