A few months ago, I excitedly announced I would be holding my first ever photography workshop in Nuremberg. It was a huge deal for me because I’m totally one of those people who thinks… “Oh… I could never do that. No one would come!” Aaaaaand So….. Despite that fear, and with the help of my uber supportive super hero husband Christopher and some dear friends, I held a photo workshop…. and, well… it was a hit! I was FLOORED when all the workshop attendees gave such great feedback, and I really couldn’t have hoped for a better overall experience! It was surreal and I’m SO GRATEFUL to everyone who attended! Seriously, everyone came ready to get down to the nitty gritty, learn their cameras, and really to challenge themselves technically and artistically. We talked, asked questions, found the answers, practiced, laughed, and at the end of the evening as the sun went down, we breathed a deep breath of satisfaction in knowing we had made some serious progress.
It was such a great experience that I could not wait to bring some of that home. And so…. I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting another photography workshop on Saturday January 11, 2014 in Irvine, CA! If you’re someone who has a DSLR and wants to learn how to use it better…. how to take better photos of your family…. how to photograph the world how you see it with your own eyes….. this workshop is for you! This workshop will be a one day intensive (not the scary kind of intensive, the good kind… only the good kind). The first half of the day, we’ll be learning the basics of our cameras, what the different buttons do, and some important photographic concepts accented by my own stories and tidbits from my learning journey. Then, after some yummy catered goodness, we’ll head out and put to practice what we learned that morning! I’ll be demonstrating some shooting techniques that I use every time I shoot, and it will be a great time for those “I need to do it to learn it” types of people.
