"Take & Make Pictures" Photography Workshop

Workshop Description

Do you have a camera laying around your house that you wish you could learn to use more effectively? Maybe you’re a blogger and would like to take your own pictures for content. Maybe you’re a parent and would like to capture more memories. Maybe you just want an introduction into basic photography for the fun of it. Either way this is perfect for you.

This workshop is suitable for beginners. The focus will be to cover the fundamentals of photography and learn how you can improve your images. Each camera is different from the next, so we will focus on your specific needs. We will discuss the difference between taking and making a picture. By the end of this two hour workshop you will hopefully be more comfortable with your camera and ready to tell stories with your images.
