I’m thinking of hosting my first mini course in the new year.
For: DSLR beginners
When: Tentative date: Saturday, January 22, 2011
Time: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Where: TBD somewhere in Central Phoenix. Ideas welcome.
This mini course by Diana Elizabeth Photography will be for you if:
- You still shoot on the green box.
- You don’t even know what the green box is.
- You want to know what a good lens is and what is worth the investment.
- You want to get “the blur” and you call it “blur” (come to the course and find out what it really is called).
- You want to know what ISO is…
- And shutterspeed…
- And aperture…
- And how they all relate.
- You want to know a bit more about composition.
- And how to find good lighting.
- You don’t have to want to make photography a career (but I said the same thing once!), you just want to capture better images.
- Your camera is still in the box and you’re feeling overwhelmed.
I might not be able to answer all of your questions, but I’ll try. We will laugh and we will have fun. And, it will be super casual, a safe environment to learn, and you won’t feel dumb. Pinky swear. You will walk away with confidence and friendships (I will make you all wear name tags and go around and say your most embarrassing moment which typically then forms an instant bond, so I’ve heard. I’m totally kidding).
I am planning on having a limit of attendees so I can answer all questions (they say in education that the teacher student ratio is important, this I have also heard).
For those wondering, I would like to have a course about photography business, marketing, workflow and more techniques for those who already know how to use their camera – more on lighting, equipment, etc. I’ll probably collaborate with another photography brainiac, we’ll see. Would love to know how’s interested in that, shoot me an email.
It’s the weekend. Go out and shoot life, it’s beautiful.
Diana Elizabeth asked for a 100mm/2.8 macro lens for Christmas from her mom and dad. Her dad has made numerous comments that he is happy to know that Diana now invests in items that will give her a return investment instead of shoes and purses. Diana still swears purses are an investment. The return investment? Dates.
