2018 Beginners Photography Class
If you answer yes to one or more of these questions then you need this class!!!
- Do you have a DSLR camera?
- Do you shoot on the green square (auto mode) and wonder why your images don’t come out like you imagined?
- Do you want to learn how to freeze action, or capture soft milky water?

- Do you want to know how to create a dreamy blurry background that is coveted by the pros?
You will learn all this and more in this one class!
Don't take my word for it, here is what one happy student had to say:
“I recently participated in Melissa's beginner's photography workshop. I am fairly new to DSL photography, having always used a point and shoot camera. Melissa did a wonderful job in helping me to understand my camera's settings and the concepts of general photography. She was well prepared, organized, and a good teacher. I felt totally comfortable asking her lots of questions and when the workshop was finished, I had a much better understanding of how to use my camera. Melissa is a very talented artist, and is organizing photo walks with her students where she gives one-on-one tips. I would highly recommend her workshop for anyone who wants to get a good start in digital photography.”
This workshop is for everyone and anyone who wants to learn how to take control of their camera. This is a beginner’s class, and I keep it small so there is no way you will not learn everything listed below and more.
In this workshop, you will learn:
· How to read your camera
· The triangle of exposure (aperture, shutter speed, ISO)
· How to shoot manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, and bulb
· The difference, RAW vs Jpg
· And so much more!
- May 19th @ 9am till, and the 20th 3pm till
- September 29th @ 9am till, and the 30th 3pm till
Day one is spent in the classroom. The class takes around 4-6 hours, plus we will break for lunch.
Day two is the optional but highly recommended, photo walk. The walk will take as long as it takes for every person to apply what we learned in day one. If you choose to not participate in the walk I cannot guarantee your ability to apply what we learn in day one.
The walk is to apply the skills you have learned. The location will be in West Mobile, AL. I will email you the address after you signup for the class.
What to bring
Your camera loaded with a memory card and charged battery
The manual for your camera
A tripod (for the walk) if you have one.
Any snacks or drinks you would like
All the FREE STUFF included
Not only are you going to walk away with the knowledge to master your DSLR but I’m going to keep the giving going!!!
You will be invited on regular, guided photo walks to keep your skills sharp and learn a few new tricks along the way.
After you have completed the class you will be given access to a closed Facebook group. This is where we can share tips, tricks, images, and encouragement. The best way to learn is with each other. This is where I will announce upcoming photo walks and fun challenges.
You will also receive a $50 CREDIT towards a teaching photoshoot for yourself or your family or a more advanced workshop.
$200 per person There is a 3 person minimum per class and a 7 person maximum per class.
There are no physical requirements for the walk. We will go as far or stay as close as every person in the class is able. The point of the walk is to get out and use your camera, to get comfortable with it, not to walk off the pounds. But, that is a bonus!
