Introductory to DSLR Photography Workshop Recap

Upcoming Workshops Hosted by Life in Pixels Photography

Yesterday evening, Sunday, August 13th, Life in Pixels Photography held our first official workshop--an Introduction to DSLR Photography course catered to individuals with varying degrees of experience, but many of which whom had never taken their cameras off the "Automatic" function. It was held at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater, New Jersey and lasted a little over two and a half hours at one of the best times of the day for outdoor photography--in the evening hours between around 5:00pm and 7:30pm, after the sun had already hit its peak for the day.Kathleen and I had a total of eight students, a turnout we were quite happy with. While I am sure none of these students were aware of this fact, it was incredibly flattering to see so many people show up ready and willing to learn from us. Conceptually, DSLR photography is incredibly difficult to understand because each setting on the camera is unique in its own right, while simultaneously being completely and utterly symbiotic. The first hour consisted of a more formal lecture type format, with both Kathleen and I taking the time to explain exactly how DSLR cameras work, as well as delving into the ideas of the settings on every DSLR--ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. We felt it was very important to understand the concepts behind these camera settings, rather than simply showing our students how to use them. The "why" and ...

Each lesson will last between one and two hours, and you will receive undivided attention, as well as materials to take home relating to the subject matter covered in your lesson. For clients who sign up to work with us on an on-going basis, "homework" assignments will be provided so that you can work on your new skills between lessons.Each session will be taught by one of the talented photographers at our studio, and the photographer assigned to you would depend on the subject you are trying to improve upon.
