Learning to Click • Bozeman Photography Workshop

After the great success of my parent resource class with the Natural Baby Company, I have been getting a lot of request wondering if I would offer a more in-depth DSLR photography class.  Many of you have DSLRs, but haven’t had time to sit down and read the manual (who really wants to do that?!) and really figure out how to use your camera.  Are you guilty of shooting on Auto all of the time (you know… that little green box on the dial?)?

After a lot of thought and preparation I’m happy to announce my very first Learning to Click basic DSLR photograph workshop!  This workshop includes hands on guidance, a structured curriculum that will cover the components of your camera and how to use all of those buttons, the basics of lighting and composition and many other topics.  The workshop will also include time for us to go out and photograph real children to practice your new skills.  You will walk away with the confidence and understanding how to put that nice camera to use in taking photos in your everyday life.

**It’s important to note that this course will not be covering any information about starting a photography business or advanced photography or Photoshop instruction; but rather focused on the everyday shooting aspect of your life.  If you’re looking for information on taking your photography to the next level, this course is probably not best suited for you.
