What kind of camera will I need for this class?
While you are welcome to do the class with any camera, you’ll be able to fully participate and get the most out of the class if you have a DSLR (a camera with removable lens) or a mirrorless camera, with the capability to shoot in manual mode. Some point and shoot cameras have this ability as well, so pull out your manual to see what your camera can do! Or, google “can a [insert camera model] shoot in manual mode?” to get your answer!
My smartphone has a really nice camera, will that be alright?
Smartphone cameras have come a long way, but they simply can’t compete with a quality camera. While they can create the illusion of a blurred background, the effect is created by a filter and doesn’t accurately depict true depth of field. Additionally, you wouldn’t have the ability to shoot in manual mode. You’ll be much better off with a “real” camera for this class!
I really don’t know much about photography… will I be able to handle this workshop?
Absolutely! The first thing we’ll cover is foundation training, so that you know all the basics before we begin! We’ll start at the very beginning with how to hold your camera and move on from there! I bet you’d be surprised by how many people who own DSLR’s don’t know how to hold them the right way. So we’re going to start at the very beginning and by the end of the workshop? You’ll be surprised by how much you’ve learned!
My middle schooler loves photography, can I enroll her in the workshop?
Absolutely! Anyone 12 years and up can participate. If the child does not have a Facebook account she/he will need to use a parent’s account to access the Workshop.
I’m a guy…. can I take the class?
While I, obviously, speak to the heart of women, guys are welcome to join us for class! If you can put up with the all the pink, I’d love to have you in class!
