Learning to Click | Twin Cities Photography Workshop

photography workshops for moms

We have been getting a lot of requests as of late wondering if we offer any basic photography classes for parents to take better photos of their own children in their every day lives.  We know many of you have DSLRs but maybe you just haven’t had the time to sit down and really figure out how to use it!  Are you guilty of shooting on Auto all of the time (you know…that little green box on the dial?)  Heck, even I did that when I first got my very first DSLR!

So, we have decided to give you what you want!  Introducing our very first Learning to Click basic photography workshop!  This workshop is designed to take place in person, for about 4 hours or so.  It includes hands on guidance, a structured curriculum that will cover the components of your camera, how to use all of those buttons, the basics of lighting and composition and many other topics!  You will walk away with the confidence and understanding how to put that “nice camera” to use in taking photos in your every day lives.

**It’s important to note that this course will not be covering any information about starting a photography business or advanced photography or Photoshop instruction; but rather is focused on the everyday shooting aspect of your life.  If you’re looking for information on taking your photography to the next level, this course is probably not best suited for you.

Required Equipment:
