Beginner Photography Workshop

We all have cameras – whether on our phone or a point and shoot or a DSLR. But do you know how to get the best out of your camera and create compelling images?

At Starting Point Photography, that’s our mission. We want to help you learn the tips, tricks, and techniques to create better photographs no matter what kind of camera you have.

Want to know a secret? Creating great photographs isn’t about the camera. It’s about your knowledge and desire. We’ll explain, in plain English, what you need to do so the next photograph you take is better than the last one. We’ll help you learn how to think about taking a photograph before you even point your camera and how to edit the image afterward to bring out the best in what you shot.

This class will be approximately two and a half hours and we’ll teach you some of the ideas, theories, and techniques professional photographers know and use in every one of their images. With that knowledge, we promise your photography will get better – regardless of the kind of camera you have!

The classes will include:

  • “Photography Secrets Revealed!” – do you know the single most important element of every good photo?
  • Camera differences – what are the pros and cons of a smartphone vs a point and shoot vs a DSLR?
  • Creative vs Technical – Learn to take advantage of all aspects of photography

And MUCH more!
