Now, I have never taught a Photography class before so it was a big undertaking to actually organize my thoughts, bring together what I have learned and share my favorite skills. I wanted to create a class that gave beginners a jump start on their learning, a fun place to interact and ask questions as they learned. The class was hands on too, I always learn best when I see someone else demonstrate and then I am able to do the same thing myself.
Learning the buttons and knobs is fun, but putting that into practice was even more fun with our model, who helped us out the very last night of the class.
This image turned out beautifully. We set up our model on a gradual slop that had green weeds growing. As they waved in the evening light, it made for a very relaxed photo session. The wind played with her hair and it was fun to work with everyone as they composed their images too.
Using natural light to light any portrait subject is a very easy place to start when you are beginning to hone your photography skills. You don't need extra lights or any other setup that requires a learning curve. So natural light is the best place to begin. And I think it was a success for everyone in the class.
