A lot of you have gotten some pretty swanky cameras for Christmas or have a pretty nice digital camera sitting on a shelf. With all that excitement comes the fear of changing from shooting automatic to shooting manual mode. The only way to make your relationship with your camera grow is to spend time with it.
Hopefully these Camera Counseling Sessions can take the fear out of your manual settings!
The Camera Counseling Sessions:
- What do I need to get started? Group discussion on a "perfect match"
- How do I work this thing? Speaking the same language as your camera.
- Lighten Up! (How to bring light into the relationship when there is none.)
- Photoshop Fun: Keep it fresh.
- Saving the Memories: A "FOREVER" future
(I will leave the artsy stuff like composition and subject to you because you are all artists!)
We all have different reasons for wanting beautiful pictures, whatever your reason, it is important to take pictures and lots of them, mistakes and all. There is a selfish reason for me wanting to do these tutorials. I want everyone to have beautiful pictures. I feel like I've missed some important moments for my own friends and family. I am super busy being a mom and teacher that being a photographer is not something that I can commit to full time as I dream about. I want everyone to be able to capture the moments of their life and their family's life. I hope these little posts will make a big difference in your images.
I will leave you with the "ever popular" before and afters.
I am by no means a photography expert, but I am a professional MOMMARAZI and I majored in photo at RISD. Most I have taught myself since I graduated as we were not entirely digital back then!

These are the times you can't wait for a professional photographer.
