You've heard the joke right?
A photographer is invited to have dinner at the home of some friends. During dinner the wife comments to the photographer “Your photos are beautiful. You must have an awesome camera!”
After finishing dinner the photographer comments to the wife “That was a wonderful meal. You must have some really great pots!"
It's true that a nice camera is...well, nice, but--with a little forethought and practice--it's also true that you can get some great shots with "just" an Iphone. And, in the ten years that I've been focusing on learning to take better photos, I've learned so many little tricks and things to think about to to that end....and now I want to share them!
So, March 6th, from 2-4 p.m. I'm teaching a class at The Little White Schoolhouse in Lawrence, Kansas. It will be beginner level and targeted towards Iphone cameras. We'll talk about light, composition, and "equipment" (or rather, household items that you can make into equipment), and I'll also be sharing some tips that are specific to photographing people, pets, food, and crafts/home and garden. The first hour will be discussion, but then--for the second hour--the plan is to break out and practice with some pre-arranged props and set-ups.
While I will not turn you away at the door if you just show up on the day of, it would be really helpful to me if you could sign up in advance if possible, so that I can prepare enough sets of materials. The cost is $15 and you can sign up and pay through this handy-dandy link (which will also be right under my header up there until the class is over).
I'm really excited to hopefully see some of you there!
