I’m really excited to announce TWO photography workshops coming up this spring at Wolfe’s Camera in Topeka, Kansas! Wouldn’t it be awesome to receive the gift of a photography workshop this holiday season? If you’ve asked for a new DSLR camera for Christmas, these photography workshops are a great opportunity to learn more about your new gear and how it all works. What good is a fancy-schmancy new camera if you don’t know what any of the buttons mean, amiright? 😛

These photography workshops are ALL FUN! We’ll break down photography basics so you can have confidence in capturing daily moments for your family. You’ll learn about composition, using natural light, and building your ShutterStory to create a captivating photograph!

Do you love photographing with their smartphone or point-and-shoot camera? ShutterStory 101 is just for you! Learn the best apps to use for your phone, how to compose a great photograph, and awesome ways to get your photos off your phone and into your hands.

Are you wanting to learn more about your DSLR? Confused by the amount of buttons and menus and find yourself photographing in Auto? Join me for the Capture your ShutterStory class! During this two-evening photography workshop we’ll break down the overwhelming and give you confidence in how to use your camera to its fullest potential. You’ll learn about photographing with manual settings, using light to tell your story, and how to create photographs you’ll love!

Here’s the details:

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Have you started thinking yet about how you’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day with your sweetie this year? I’m excited that the holiday lands on a Saturday, of all days, this year — because that means you can spend the afternoon of Valentine’s Day enjoying two of the things you love most: photography and your spouse! 🙂

Wolfe’s helped create an awesome event this Valentine’s Day, so that BOTH of you can learn about photography! Mom is so often behind the lens, and dads will learn some simple tips to help create images that your whole family will love. This will be a Valentine’s Day photography class to remember, for sure!

I’m excited to share some of my favorite storytelling techniques that will ignite the creative spark for both you and your honey. You’ll walk away with fun tips to try with your smartphone or DSLR, and a fresh creative perspective on documenting your love and your family throughout the season. Doesn’t that sound fun? Plus, imagine yummy snacks, giveaways, and more!

And consider this: schedule your sitter a little longer so that you can go out for a fancy Valentine’s Day dinner afterward! 🙂 Seats are limited, so sign up today!
