Beginner’s Photography Class

I remember holding a DSLR in my hands for the first time and having NO idea how to use it. I took hundreds, maybe thousands of photos, just trying to practice and learn. However, practicing didn’t do me any good when I was shooting everything with an automatic exposure… as if all you had to know how to do was turn a dial and select a “scene” on your camera.
.
I decided to teach myself, and after years of studying my manual, I attended a couple of workshops, where I finally gained the confidence to take photos I was proud to display.
.
Maybe this is where you are… maybe you are practicing and not seeing improvement. Maybe you’ve been reading your camera manual or online forums, desperately hoping to find answers and see a change.

I am putting together a workshop in hopes of teaching you how to use your camera and create beautiful images. It will be a 4-5 hour class, including some hands-on shooting with real people and the opportunity to ask any questions you come up with! (something that you can’t do when studying the manual!) We’ll cover the ins and outs of how your camera works, as well as how to nail lighting and exposure, focusing and how to avoid blurry images, etc.
.
I have professionally shot weddings for over six years, but now that I’m a momma, I’m taking a break from that world. Having my sweet girl has made me realize how incredibly important it is to be able to snap quality, beautiful photos day-to-day. I am so thankful that I am able to do this and to do it well – the skills I have from my photography business are a gift, and to be able to have beautiful snapshots of my girl that I am proud to display in my home is an even greater gift. That is my motivation for this class – to share this gift with you.
.
The workshop size will be limited, so registration will close once it is full.
If you are wanting to learn how to expose your photos in-camera (and how to avoid “needing” Photoshop to fix everything), learn how to avoid blurry, out-of-focus images, avoid a sterile, intimidating classroom setting and come hang out in a comfy, cozy environment, and get hands-on learning as we practice on an amazing model (and maybe even a super cute baby), then sign up here!

  • her first KS snowfall | 01•19•2019 ♥️ She’ll never remember it, but it was also the first time she’s ever heard a snowplow in the late hours of the night. That sound of a truck scraping the road while the rest of street is sleeping is one of my most favorite sounds. ❄️ (Growing up, that sound was almost always the sound of schools being closed the next day. ☃️) We get snow in Indiana, but Kansas snow has a certain magic to it that I’m so thankful she experienced. ✨ #ohmywinnie
  • I never planned to be a newborn photographer, but every time I leave a session with a brand new baby, I’m certain I’m doing exactly what I should be doing and I wouldn’t change a thing. 💕 see more of this session on my website: meaganwhitephoto.com
