DSLR Camera Classes in Nashville and Memphis

workshop1 DSLR Camera Classes in Nashville and Memphis
Last year, I started offering beginning DSLR classes for clients, friends, mommies, or anyone who wanted to learn how to use their DSLR. They have been a huge hit and have helped so many people take better pictures of their children and families. I know many people who have a “big” camera or “mommy” camera on their wishlist.  So you get your new camera and you expect your pictures to turn out amazing with that first click.  But most of the time that doesn’t happen and truthfully the sight of all those buttons just stresses you out. Maybe you’ve had your camera for a while, but you still haven’t ventured out of auto. Or you’ve ventured, but you still can’t nail that blurry background you see from everyone else.


If any of this sounds like you, then this class may be perfect for you… all you need is a DSLR (a camera that changes lenses). No experience needed!


Here are some of the topics that we will cover:

* Camera basics and functions

* Modes – AV, TV, M

* Exposure

* Shutter speed, aperture, ISO

* Histograms

* White balance

* Using natural light

* Metering

* Focusing

* Composition

* Saving and printing your images

* Tips and tricks


Workshop Includes:

* 3 hours of instruction: includes time for discussion and hands on practice

* Snacks

* A workbook full of great information

* A fun Mom’s day out with new friends

This workshop is intended as a beginning photography class. We’ll work on getting to know your camera better and taking better pictures of your children. This is not a photography business class or intended for someone wanting to start a photography business.


Cost: $100

Memphis Dates: Saturday, February 16: 10am-1pm in Germantown, TN

Nashville Dates: Sunday, February 10th: 1pm-4pm at Snap Studios in Hendersonville, TN
