  • Refreshing camera settings and the Exposure Triangle
  • Mastering Window Light and creating portraits in your own home
  • Finding great light for faces outdoors wherever you are

Digital cameras have opened up a brand new world to hobbyists and professionals alike, with previously inconceivable low-light capabilities, stop-action shutters, and 12-frames-per-second shooting.  Amazing! Yet if you leave your camera on AUTO, you are leaving WAY too much up to the camera in your hand and missing a whole lot of DRAMA that you could be capturing instead of samo samo.  Point is, in most situations, the Auto Mode is not the best choice for a good outcome.

Thinking about each situation and shot (like we had to do with film) engages the creative process and will absolutely make you a Better Photographer!  So we’ll dig into camera settings and work on the Exposure Triangle and get you more comfortable with moving that dial off of Auto!

Window Light - Everyone has windows and the beautiful light that streams in, especially if it’s North Light.  Learn to use that light to create gorgeous portraits of your children and pets.  Set up backdrops with curtains or fabrics, props, and style the sets like I do in the studio.  Such a great and fun project!

Outdoor Light - Weather permitting, we’ll head out to the garden and learn to find the best light for your people pics, whether for casual snapshots or pro portraits.  Except for the wildlife, the images in this blog post were photographed either in the studio or in the garden.
