I have owned a digital SLR camera for almost 4 years now, and I still don’t really know how to use it. Well, I mean I take all the nice pictures on this blog with it, but I do it all on auto and often the colors don’t come out right or the rooms seem like they have no depth. This weekend I decided to rectify my lack of photography skills by taking the Beginnings Workshop at Warthan Farms Photography. You are probably more familiar with Jennifer Warthan than you think because she is the wonderful photographer who took all the family pictures on my about me page (go check it out if you haven’t).
The class focused on all the fundamentals of how to use your camera as well as how to get the proper exposure. I’m really excited to put all my new skills to use photographing the new house, so be on the look out for better interior shots. Until then, please sit back and enjoy the photos of our wonderful models from the workshop.
Pssst…I’m still not claiming to be a great photographer, and I’m still working on using a manual focus, so go easy on me.
Our first models were these adorable boys and their mom.
Next up, we had a maternity shoot with what has to be the most beautiful pregnant woman ever.
Maybe if I can get my kids to stay still for a second I might be able to use my new found skills to get a great shot of them. Jennifer also offers an Editing Workshop that I’m dying to take since I know absolutely nothing about Photoshop and for those more serious photogs out their Jennifer offers weekend retreats and private mentoring sessions!
