Learn How to Use that Camera

By popular request, I have decide to offer two classes that will teach you some basics. I remember the first time I held a DSLR camera, It was very overwhelming. What does all those letters on the dial mean? I had just spent a good bit of money on something I knew nothing about. I knew it had the capability to take better photos but it took some time to figure out how everything worked. SO, I want to help other people. Here are all the details:

This class will be a review of everything we’ve covered in the first classe PLUS we’ll be spending time shooting together so I can be there to answer all your questions about how to capture some amazing shots!

While you are not required to have taken the previous class, it will definitely help. I will do a quick review from the first class, but won’t have time to go really in-depth. By the time you take this class you should have some of the basic skills down and be looking to troubleshoot problems you are having.

****ALSO this class comes with an instructional video. Not only will this video demonstrate me in action but it will also go over some of the important points that we have discussed in the workshop.
