Since the day I became a mom, always having a camera by my side has been important to me. I’ve tried to capture not just the big events, but the small moments, too. By capturing those small moments with my camera, I look back and I see the beauty that our everyday life holds. The photographs of moments that seemed mundane and simple at the time are the ones I treasure the most.
This workshop is for beginner DSLR users who do not yet have a good understanding of how to use their camera in the manual setting, and it is for those who want to learn how to tell a story of their child’s everyday life through their photographs.
workshop date & time
Saturday, February 23, 2013 | 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
This workshop will be held in the home of a local Bismarck mom, and is open to all. I love this idea of holding the Everyday Life Workshop in homes because what better place to learn how to capture the everyday moments of your child’s life than the place where those moments are most often created?! (Read the info below if you have 8-10 friends interested in the Everyday Life Workshop and would like to host one of your own!)
what we will learn
General rules for composistion and how it can improve your photo
How to tell a story with your photographs
Tips for getting more natural and candid shots of your children
How to work with the natural light you have available
Identifiying what is correct exposure
The basics of shooting in manual mode: ISO, shutter speed, and aperture
50+ page workbook that details the lessons learned at the workshop for you to keep and refer to afterward
Shooting time with children for hands-on learning and Q&A with Megan
Lunch and snacks
A goodie bag and drawings for some fun photography related items
what you need
A DSLR camera
Your camera’s user manual
Any lens. You can bring the kit lens that came with your camera, or I highly encourage you to invest in a 50mm lens. The 50mm f/1.8 lens is very affordable (just over $100) and it will allow you to do so much more with it’s lower aperture capabilities. (And you’ll find out what aperture means at the workshop!!!) You can find them here: CANON | NIKON
