Many parents just want to take great every day photos of their kids. You have invested in that fancy DSLR camera but now you need to know how to use it. Well...that is where I come in! This course is a BEGINNER photography workshop conducted through a facebook group on how to learn how to use your DSLR in manual mode, how to use light and composition to get BETTER photos, and some of my tips and tricks that have helped me get to where I am today.
Who am I? My name is Emily and I am the owner of Hello Charlie. I have been a professional photographer for four years and learned digital photography about 5 years ago. I studied graphic design and photography in college but back in those days it was darkroom...yes, it really was. I specialize in taking photos of kids and babies and have found that many parents are just wanting a simple course like this. This is not for anyone wanting to start their own photography business or get into super technical knowledge...we all start somewhere and its super fun to do this as a group. This is my fifth time teaching this class and its one of my favorite things to do with my photography knowledge!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is it? We will be starting February 15th and going through March 15. The entire class is taught online via a Facebook exclusive group that only those of you in the group can see. You can check in on your own time, you can miss days and catch up. The beauty is you will still get all of the information but you can do it on your own schedule and what works for you.
What will I learn about? We will get our cameras in MANUAL MODE, learn about lighting, composition and how to photo journal. Each week there is a lesson and assignment (assignments require about an hour or two of your time per week). You work on everything on your own and can ask me questions at any time (please give me about 24 hours to respond). I post examples, tips and other fun things throughout the week to help you along the way. You will get a printable pdf at the end of the course to keep all the amazing information you learn. And finally, you will learn a ton on how to take better photos of your kiddos throughout the month which is the main goal. Many people are scared of the month long course..this is really just so it can be done completely on your own schedule. We are all busy, have crazy days, sick kids, etc, so life happens and you can check in the next day or two.
Who can sign up? Moms, Dads, Grandmas….anybody. This is a beginner course. This is not for anybody wanting to start their own photography business.
How much is it? It is $125 payable via Paypal. This is my most preferred method of payment, you don't have to have paypal...when I send you an invoice you can pay with a credit card. Let me know if you would rather do a check and we can work that out. Registration MUST be paid by February 14, 2015 as then I need to send you the link to join the group on facebook and I need everyone to be ready to go on February 15th.
Is seating limited? Because the course is online through a facebook closed group, I can take as many "mamas" as I want to take the class. I do have a “limit” in mind though and will cut it off once I get to that number and offer a second course at a later date. It does take time to answer all of your questions and critique your photos you submit... so get in early and reserve your spot!!
What do I need to take the class? A camera and your camera’s manual. I do highly recommend you have a DSLR camera and a computer or laptop to put your photos onto. I don’t know how to use every camera ever made but I do know the basic functions of photography and can direct you on where to find the answers in your manual.
