Recommended equipment for this workshop…
- A DSLR camera, this is a camera that you can change the lenses on, not a point and shoot. A camera like a Canon rebel, Canon 60D, Nikon D90, or Nikon D7000, etc…
- A lens that opens up to a wide aperture. For Canon users I recommend Canon’s 50mm 1.8 lens or Canon’s 35mm 2.0 lens. For Nikon users I recommend Nikon’s 35mm 1.8 or Nikon’s 50mm 1.8.

This workshop is intended for people with a DSLR camera. DSLR cameras are digital cameras that allow you to change the lenses, like Canon Rebels, Nikon D90′s, and more. If you want to learn how to use your fancy camera to take better pictures this is the right place to start.
This workshop will help you get off of automatic settings and take you through the basics of shooting on manual. We will begin with what all those buttons do and which settings I recommend to set on your camera. You will gain an understanding of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture while viewing videos, examples, and being challenged to take your own pictures to help you learn and grow.
I will be personally critiquing the pictures that you take. I really want you to know what to do with your camera and for you to be the one telling your camera what to do. I can’t wait to help you figure out this fabulous camera and to get you closer to taking your own beautiful pictures of the people that you love.
