Shooters In Training Photography Workshop
by The Bartees
Dates: February 23rd and 24th
Day One: Saturday from 8AM to 6PM
Ever feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of buttons and options on your DSLR camera? Some cameras literally HUNDREDS of different settings, but the secret is that you really only need to know how to use a few of them to take professional quality images. We will spend the entire first day teaching you what you need to know to go from being an absolute beginner and shooting in auto mode, to shooting in MANUAL mode like the pros! By the end of the day Saturday you will be confidently telling your camera EXACTLY what to do, rather than just letting it guess what you want. All you need to bring with your is your DSLR camera, a notebook, and whatever lenses you may have.
Day Two: Sunday from noon to 6 PM
After you have mastered your camera settings on Saturday, it will be time to learn the more creative side of photography on Sunday. We will go over some basic lighting tricks, how to find amazing locations, how to compose your shots, how to get good photos at sporting events, and SO SO much more. While day one is purely technical, day two is all about art. The majority of the second day is spent outside shooting, so be sure to bring a jacket and gloves if you think it will be chilly. At the end of it all, we will conclude our time together in a big Q&A Session where we will go over gear, software, etc. We do not hold anything back, and we promise to share any of our secrets that you ask about!
And Beyond! (the Facebook Group)
The final part of the workshop is an ongoing community of people who have taken the class before in a Facebook Group. Upon completion of the class, you will be added to our secret group where you can post photos for critique, or even just to brag. We also occasionally post additional tips and tricks as well. As of right now there are over 100 other photographers who occasionally post their work asking for advice. It truly is a beautiful thing.
