    UNDERSTANDING LIGHT - One on One

    Understanding Light made easy! 

    No matter your skill level, this workshop teaches you how to get the most from ANY camera. World class photographers have learned to see the available light, UNDERSTAND the available light, and adjust their camera settings based on the available light. Without that capability, your photographs will never be the best that they could be. Using proven techniques, you will learn how the camera works so that you can make it do exactly what you want time and time again.  Almost anyone can get a great photo once - by chance. The real trick is being able to repeat success time and time again - and that is what this workshop teaches.

    LENSBABIES - One on One

    Lensbabies made easy! 

    Lensbabies can unleash your creativity as no other specialty lenses can do. However, they have a somewhat steep learning curve, coupled with a wide variety of lenses, all of which have different capabilities. Becoming good with Lensbabies can be frustrating!  This workshop helps eliminate the frustration while teaching you to unleash the creativity you were seeking when you bought your Lensbabies in the first place.

    No matter which system you are using, original or composers, drop-in lenses with aperture rings - or the Velvet special effects lenses, you can learn the basics on how to use them artistically. As a bonus - we have almost every lens Lensbaby makes, so you can even experiment with our lenses before buying new ones for yourself! From drop-ins to Velvets to their wonderful fisheye, we have them all!

    This workshop teaches how to master Depth of Field to achieve awesome Bokeh with a stunning soft focus. Depth of Field is one of the major storytelling tools available to photographers where you have to decide what to include, or exclude in your image as it relates to foreground - subject - background. 

    One on One training means you:

  • set the date and start time for your training!
  • enjoy One on One attention from your instructor!
  • enjoy an uninterrupted learning experience!

  • how to determine proper Depth of Field for each subject,
  • How to determine the level of shift needed to achieve your goals,
  • to understand light,
