Mom's (or Dad's) With Cameras Class!!!

After probing around and asking I've found that there is definitely interest in me holding a beginner's camera class for beginners to learn more on how to use their cameras to get the best pictures they can!

This class will incorporate:
-Shooting manual
-Basics of good composition
-"Fuzzy" background (aperture)
-Low light photography
-Photographing on the move
-When to and when not to use flash
Date: August 24th, 2013
Time: 2pm - 5pm
Location: Petrifying Springs Park - Kenosha, WI
Cost: $100
Registration opens: May 15th
A deposit of $60 is due at the time of registration.  The remainder will be due the week prior to the class.  The deposit is non-refundable unless you find someone to take your place in the class.

The cost of this class includes all the learning knowledge, a helpful hints book to keep, and one month of follow up via email or phone to answer your questions.

Approximate Schedule:
2pm:  Meet at parking area 4.  We will begin class with some handouts and general information regarding basic photography.
3pm - 4:30pm:  Shooting with "models".  You will be practicing live demonstrations of techniques on each other as well as possibly my child and a model or two.
4:30pm - 5pm:  Closing thoughts, questions, follow up information.

This class is not intended to be a beginner photographer class - it is intended to be a learning experience for those with DSLR cameras (removable lenses) or higher end point and shoot cameras who simply want to learn how to better use them.  I will not be sharing any information about my processing, specific shooting techniques, or other business related items.

Summer Schedule!!!!

Now is the time to book your summer sessions!!!  I anticipate to fill up quickly and with our new baby arriving any time I will be limiting my number of sessions!  $50 deposit is due within 7 days of booking (you can pay through the link or write a check).  It is *possible* I may open more times if these fill up but only after I see how things are going once baby arrives and I start shooting again!

Everything is BOOKED

24th -10:30am, 11:30am

This little guy was a picture perfect newborn at 8 days old!  Very sleepy until the very end :).
I first met his mama shooting a wedding back in November 2012 and I've been looking forward to capturing this little guy's newborn pics for months!!!

Carrell Newborn

This little man came in at just about 2 weeks old.  Usually this is stretching it for newborns and he proved that true!  He was wide awake the WHOLE time :) But he wasn't unhappy with us - just showing us his pretty little eyes!
