Shoot! Rattle and Roll!!//Richmond, VA Beginners DSLR Photography Workshop

Do you own a DSLR (One of those big and fancy) camera? Are you still shooting in Auto? Does that bright green button on your dial taunt you, knowing you can do so much more, but the thought of switching that dial to Manual completely freaks you out?! You are not alone my friend!

So many people purchase expensive DSLR cameras and don’t have the slightest knowledge of how to properly use them! There is a WHOLE WORLD beyond Auto that your camera can do, and you need to learn it! And that’s why we are having this class!

I will be teaching the basic fundamentals of shooting in manual and helping you get your images to look the way YOU want them to, and not the way your camera wants them to.

Let’s get your everyday indoor SOOC (straight out of camera) images from looking like the top image, to looking like the bottom! (No editing done folks! )DSC_9970Pinit

And let’s get those everyday outside SOOC images from looking like this top image, to looking like the bottom image!
