This idea to hold my own photography class has been popping up in my mind alot lately. I have so many moms who come up to me and ask me questions about how to capture better pictures of their kids, pets, flowers scenery and on and on. I always love these questions. I love to help them in hopes they will take better pictures. But there is more to just pressing the shutter button on your camera and hoping it will magically take a perfect picture. Ha! Been there. Done that. We don't live in a perfect world do we? Sure, we can set our cameras to Auto Mode and let the camera do all the guessing for us, but we bought our fancy DSLR camera to take awesome pictures. Right? Why not learn what all those other buttons do? Why not be as awesome as our camera??
Of course you can learn how to move out of Auto Mode. Yet, it takes practice. Lot's of practice. And patience. Tons of patience. Trial and error. Learning to take charge of that black box in your hands called a camera. And learning to move away from having the camera choose all the settings for us. You own the camera. Why not really own that camera?
Taking pictures is not rocket science. It is however about learning what I call photo recipes. Each particular photo situation involves a special recipe. Ingredients and skills. Lighting. Aperture. ISO. Shutter speed. Exposure. Oh my.
With such an interest in photography all around me I have decided to share my talent. My passion for photography. With hopes to teach and guide others along so they can achieve more from their camera. Lose the red eye! The blasted whiteness of flash. Dark pictures. Blurry moments. Become a better photographer and take those pretty pictures. Make your friends jealous.
