Classes

According to a recent article I read online, 3.5 million DSLR cameras were sold in 2014.  Did you get one?  Do you not just LOVE IT?  And – admit it – are you still using it set on Auto?  No more!  Join us for a Mamarazzi Session or Photo Safari, and learn how to adjust your camera’s settings yourself for better photos and a more fun, involved shooting experience.

The Mamarazzi Sessions

The Mamarazzi Sessions are classes designed for people who want to take better photos of other people – in a lot of cases, their own children.  We’ll work with technical terms like ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, and discuss the differences between each of the manual settings (and why the pre-programmed ones are good, but not the best).  We’ll discuss special tips on working with children – how to get them to look up and look pretty, for example – and composition of portraits.

$210 per person

  • Your choice of location, on your preferred date
  • Includes workbook

To register, please email or call me with the following information: your name, phone number, mailing address, and email address; your preferred session, and a date/time; the make and model of your camera; and the age, gender, and name of any child you plan to have with you for photo practice time.

Photo Safari

Photo Safari classes are designed for people who want to take better outdoor and vacation photos.  Although we’ll cover the same technical topics as in the Mamarazzi Sessions – ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and metering – special attention will be paid to architectural and natural composition, and we’ll skip the part about shooting the kids.  We’ll talk about taking destination photos that don’t look like a police lineup (you know the ones, because your parents took them when you were a kid: “Stand in front of that building!  Now smile!”), and work on using bright sun as an advantage in dramatic architectural shots.

To register, please email or call me with the following information: your name, phone number, mailing address, and email address; your preferred session, and a date/time; the make and model of your camera.

A special note: you do NOT have to have a DSLR camera to take either of these classes.  Although most of the topics we’ll cover are applicable to DSLRs, many newer point-and-shoots also have similar capabilities, and you’ll still be able to learn some new tricks.  Email us your camera’s make and model, and we’ll check out your user manual online and make sure that you’d benefit from the class.  You also do not have to be a woman to take the kid-focused class, even though they’re called Mamarazzi Sessions.  But you do have to wear a dress and heels.  (I kid!  OR DO I?)  See you in class!

Discounts are given for groups of 4 or more persons.  So, if you and your friends want to get together for a class – let me know and we can talk group discount!
