Need help learning how to take better pictures of your kids or grandkids?
Are you frustrated because you upgraded to a DSLR but still aren’t getting the images you were hoping for?
Do all of those camera buttons overwhelm you?
Do you tend to stay in the ‘green’ automatic mode?
Does technical jargon like ‘shutter’ and ‘aperture’ and ‘ISO’ scare you?
Do your images sit on your camera card for months, never downloaded, backed-up or impossible to find on your computer?
If you answered YES, this workshop is for YOU!
Many parents purchase a DSLR camera (one that has interchangeable lenses) in hopes of not missing a moment of their children’s lives, but are not satisfied with their images when they appear on their computer screen. They just want their images to be better.
Wondertime Workshop is a Basic dSLR Workshop by Wondertime Photography that teaches parents and grandparents how to take better pictures of their kids ~ since I can’t be with you during the other 364 days when we aren’t together for our portrait session. ;) We will focus on concepts you can easily put into practice, just by understanding lighting, composition, perspective and age appropriate techniques. We will not be addressing business topics or Photoshop editing as this workshop is not for professional photographers or those who aspire to become one.
A few basic things we’ll cover:
• The basics of photography – exposure, aperture, shutter speed, ISO
• Lighting – training your eye to see the light inside and outside
• Camera settings – auto vs. manual settings
• Composition, perspective and storytelling
• Lenses and focal length
• Tips for great images at any subject's age
• Output – downloading, storing and printing images
• Q&A with me
• Hands-on practice during live mini-shoots (inside & outside…with models)
WHO: Nine lucky ladies and/or gentlemen! (Each workshop will be limited to 9 participants plus their host so we can have some great discussion, figure out our cameras and practice our skills.)
COST: $200 (plus tax) The workshop on a Saturday in February 2013 (TBD)
Included is the 7 hour workshop, a workshop manual, lunch, snacks & drinks, and some fun goodies. If you schedule a 2013 Spring session with Wondertime Photography on the day of the workshop, you will receive a $100 credit towards your session purchase.

Oh! And for those of you with a digital point-and-shoot or a film SLR, you can still learn how to take better photos…we’ll just spend part of the time talking specifically about DSLRs. Remember, this is a basic photography workshop and is NOT intended for professional photographers or those who aspire to become one. If you just want to learn how to take better pictures of your kids, this is definitely for you!
