Photography 101 … Through the Artist’s Eye!

With Cynthia Shaffer

Have you ever looked at super dreamy photos and wondered how the heck did they do that? Do you want to take great photos of your art, capture precious moments of your family, children, pets or nature and then make them shine on your web site, social media, blog or in publications? Well, guess what? It’s all about learning to shoot in manual mode. This workshop will teach you just that, and so much more!

Ok, here’s the thing about this workshop ... Cynthia is an artist and knows how to teach this technical subject in a way that creative people will understand. Often creative minds need visual aids to learn rather than written text. While there will be plenty of written words, tips and tricks, downloadable cheat sheets and links to Cynthia’s favorite tools she can’t live without, the workshops will be packed with close-up hands on videos (Cynthia’s hands on the cameras showing you where the buttons and dials are and how and when to push them). But here’s the best part … you’ll be able to stop the video and practice with your camera and then continue on at your own pace. And if you didn’t quite understand it the first time, because this is all brand new to you, you can play that video over again!

Towards the end of this workshop there will be activities and prompts to practice all your new photography skills! While some of the activities will be geared towards the artist, the basic photography skills taught are the same for anyone wanting to learn how to get the most from their camera and to shoot in manual mode.

A Facebook page will be available to chat, share and trouble shoot! Cynthia will be available daily to help troubleshoot and problem solve.

So grab your DSLR, turn the mode dial to “M” and let your photography adventure begin!
