Online DSLR Workshop for Beginners

It’s that time again to teach one of my favorite classes!  If you received a new DSLR for Christmas or you still haven’t figured out how to get off the green Auto box mode, then what are you waiting for?  Or, if you are a newbie photographer that needs to master lighting and get work on getting your “style” I’d love you to join in on this workshop!

Every Wednesday starting at 5 pm PST for 1 hour over the next 4 weeks (you catch that?), I’ll be teaching you from the comfort of your own home online, LIVE with an interactive chat room so you can ask questions as I cover all the photography scoop you need to know.  How to shoot manual mode, how to find lighting, how to…well, this:

  • ISO, shutterspeed, and aperture
  • The correct lenses to use for capturing the image you want
  • Equipment favorites and resources
  • Composition secrets
  • Lighting techniques—silhouette, backlighting, golden light, open shade, bounce flash, direct flash, and more!
  • Working with subjects to get the reactions you want—children, couples, families
  • Posing and styling techniques
  • Post processing—using actions and presets
  • And much, much more!

Yes, I could teach a 1-time course but I believe that you will get the best education from taking this workshop over time.  So instead of “Hey, here it is 1-2-3, now goodbye!” We have a private Facebook group where you upload your weekly images and receive instructor feedback.  We build EACH WEEK together on the techniques I teach so by week 4, you’re rockin’ and rollin’ on manual mode and using Photoshop and all that fancy editing!  If you have to miss a class, it’s recorded so you can play it back at your own time to catch up – or if you’re in a different time zone in the world.

This will be my fifth time teaching this course.  So sign up, tell your friends or gift them!  reserve your seat here.


Just three weeks into the course and I feel like my confidence when taking pictures has boosted! I walk into a photo shoot confident that my lighting will come out right. I always tried to find and google information about aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and I was always guided to the most complicated manuals and articles. I never really understood any of it. The way you have taught this workshop has made it so easy for me to understand and grasp the concepts. My friends and family are noticing that images are coming out a lot better ever since I started this workshop with you. Once again, I want to thank you for sharing your knowledge. I can’t wait to start your next workshop.

After participating in ‘Creating the Image,’ I learned more about my camera in just four weeks than I had since I bought it! After taking Diana’s class, I feel empowered to take my photography to the next level and feel that I have a solid foundation to build upon. Thank you for unselfishly sharing your amazing talent!

Hope to see you in class and on Facebook soon!  Former attendees have been published on Style Me Pretty, and become business owners!

Diana Elizabeth once forgot to mute her mic when she was talking to the Mr.  she was thankful her attendees told her but when she started up the video again she was flush red.  

Trying to decide what to write to make myself sound interesting.
