Basic Digital Photography with WhirlieGirl Photography

UPDATE - Basic Digital Photography public classes are ready to begin again!!! We have not set up a date at this time but will announce them in our Facebook Events - be sure to follow for updates!  HOWEVER - Private classes, private photoshop training and mentoring are still available on a one-to-one basis.  Please contact us for more information

If you're ready to learn the basics of digital photography and go beyond the point and shoot, then you are ready for this class with Angela at WhirlieGirl Photography.

There are two different classes being offered at this time, Basic Digital Photography for Adults and Basic Digital Photography for Moms. The two classes are very similar with a few exceptions. First off, don't let the name fool you, this is for dads too!! The moms class is for parents who would like to learn how to take better photos of their kids and families in between their annual family portraits that they have done by a professional. The adult class is for the hobbyist or aspiring photographer to learn how to get off of autopilot and hone their skills.

__*UPDATE - We will now be offering an extension to the class for basic Photoshop editing instruction for those who are interested in it for an additional fee. We will also make available individual classes dedicated to basic and intermediate image editing in Photoshop. If you are interested in these courses, you must bring your own laptop preloaded with Photoshop.

Some of the topics covered in the classes are:

  • Basic understanding of exposure

  • Toolkit for photographers

  • Camera settings

  • Composition and more

What you will need:

  • 2 hours to spend at the class

  • DSLR camera - you DON'T need a really expensive camera to take amazing pictures!!

  • Pen for notes

  • Laptop (not required)

Each attendee will also be given an information packet that includes everything that you will be taught in easy to follow steps and wording. You'll be on your way to better images in no time!
