The Start of Storytelling: Photography Basics for the Emerging Storyteller
If you’ve ever looked at the LCD on your nice, expensive camera and thought, “I wish I knew how to use this thing better,” keep reading. Imagine being able to tell your unique story creatively and capture photos of your children or your daily life that preserve little moments in time. These are the type of photos that are on my walls and it feels amazing to glance at my favorite memories daily. I want to teach you how to create photos that you’re proud to hang on your walls too!
With summer approaching, take a second to think about your favorite summer activities. I’ll help you train your eyes to find the moments that matter most and help you become more confident in using your camera in a way that YOU are in control of the outcome. Not your camera!
NEXT CLASS: Saturday, June 22, 9:00 AM
»»The class will be held in my home in Edmond, OK. Class is approximately two and a half hours.
What the Start of Storytelling workshop is about:
»» Easy to implement topics such as light, composition, seeing photographic opportunities, and discovering the things
you want to capture - all things you can do without extensive camera knowledge to improve your photos fast
»» Basic Gear - what’s out there, what’s affordable
»» Why shoot in manual mode? Brief explanation of the exposure triangle: Shutter, Aperture, ISO
»» Overcoming the, “my kid doesn’t want his or her picture taken” mentality. Taking unposed photos to evoke memories and tell your story.
»» Shooting practice and Q & A
»» 10 women max to allow for ample time for each individual. This class is paired best with a gal pal & and some tasty snacks! If this date doesn’t work for you, contact me for info on how to choose your own date and earn your seat in class for free. Email email@example.com for more info.

What this class isn’t:
»» This workshop is not about the business side of photography or how to start your own photography business.
»» This workshop will only briefly cover editing. I recommend a one on one mentoring session with me for in-depth editing help.
»» This workshop is not for those who already have a very strong grasp of basic photography concepts.
»» This workshop doesn’t not cover posing or prop/backdrop set ups. I shoot very candid, documentary story-telling
images, so that is what’s taught.
»» Invitation to private Facebook group for Workshop Attendees for support, questions, & to post photos showing off
what you’ve learned!
»» BONUS MATERIAL: 3 Day Photography Challenge where I critique your images ($250 value)
