Do you want to learn to take better photos that will make you say
“I took that!”?
Did you buy a DSLR camera and are now overwhelmed by all of the buttons and features? (you only need a few of them)
Are you frustrated that your camera does not focus where you want, and leaves you with improperly exposed photos?
Are you looking to take your DSLR camera out of auto mode and control your results?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, keep reading below!
2018 will be the 4th year I have taught photography workshops. The feedback has been great. There have been small changes and improvements made over the years, but in 2017 i had a revolutionary idea for future workshops that I am very excited about.
The workshop I was hosting in Saskatoon had just started and we were going around the room doing introductions. Someone had traveled from Edmonton, and I was talking about what a long drive that was when someone else said they came from Flin Flon Manitoba. Wow, I was doing a map in my head when the fellow who had driven 18 hours from Seattle Washington introduced himself. I couldn’t believe people had traveled that far and stayed in hotel rooms to take a course in Saskatoon. I wished i could do workshops all over North America. Every week or so I hear from people from new towns or cities asking about the possibility of one of my workshop coming to their area.
(The 2018 Workshops are over for the year. If you would like to inquire about 2019 workshops please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2018 Workshops are online, live, and interactive. No need to drive anywhere, get a motel room, or even do your hair! Participate from your computer, phone, TV, laptop or tablet – anywhere you can watch Youtube. They have been very well received so far- i can’t believe i didn’t think of this sooner!
How this works
About a week before the course you have chosen starts, I will email you with some info and the course booklet. The morning of the course I will send the private link to access the live and interactive online course. Then you just need to make a coffee, get comfortable and click on the youtube link I’ve sent. It is as easy as that. You can pause and rewind the stream at any time, as well as go back and re-watch it a few days later, a couple of weeks later..
What kinds of things are covered in the course?
This workshop will explain the technical aspects of your camera in an easy to understand method. ISO, Aperture, Shutterspeed, RAW files vs JPG, Dynamic Range and similar topics will be explained and make sense.
Other topics such as composition, taking photos that have impact, lighting techniques, creativity, equipment worth having, gadgets that are a waste of money as well as digital photo editing (with adobe camera raw and photoshop) will also be covered.
I also go over some of my favorite photos I have taken and discuss the why’s and how’s of how i took the photo.
Your landscapes, vacation photos, wildlife, portraits, pictures of your family and even selfies will be much improved after taking this 2 day workshop. You will be ready to take all kinds of photos including night photos when done the course!
This course is beneficial to all skill levels. If you have just bought a camera and don’t know how to turn it on, this class is for you. If you have been shooting for a few years but want to learn how to achieve that extra wow factor, this class is for you. If you are an accomplished photographer and just want to get excited about photography again, this class is for you.
