Getting to know your camera: $199.00

HAPPENING ON A SUNDAY IN NOVEMBER THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE. 

Part One: For those who have a camera and wonder what those buttons actually do! In this two hour workshop, we'll discuss aperture, ISO and shutter speed, workflow {what to do with your photos after you take them}, different lenses for different scenarios, how to use natural light, basic posing and more. I will answer any questions that you may have about your business, the world is your oyster! At the end of the workshop, we will do a photo critiquing and a Q+A!  A questionnaire will be sent to you prior to the workshop, for me to get a feel on what you're looking to learn.

Part Two: We will head outside and put this brand new knowledge to use! I will do some directing to a couple while you shoot away :-)

**The group workshop will be no more than 5 photographers, so everyone can have a chance to absorb as much as possible!**

 

{Workshop will be held at 78 George St, Ottawa}
