What you'll do

If you have ever wanted to learn how to use your digital camera to it's fullest potential, this experience is for you. This is a hands-on fundamentals workshop, that I will tailor to your specific needs. If you are beginner, just starting out, then we can start with the basics, and I will help you to get to know your camera better.
If you are an advanced amateur and want to learn more about lighting, shooting in manual, off-camera flash, and what modifiers to use when, that's exactly what we will do.
We will meet at one of my favorite low-key brewpubs or restaraunts, where we will go over fundamentals, and I will address any concerns that you have shared with me.
We will then head out to the streets of Fountain Square. We will shoot the city, discuss which lenses to use, and go over aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. If you've never shot in manual mode, you will go home with a strong understanding of how it works. If you know your camera and all of the basics, but want to learn more advanced techniques, I will be happy to share my knowledge.

Michael was super easy to communicate with, we had to reschedule our original appointment and he was very accommodating to work with my schedule. He took the time to look at my photoography skills and critique it. He gave me useful information about lenses and cameras that I did not know and is also helping me improve my photography game. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

I am in the beginning stages of photography. Michael taught me about my camera and made sure I understood its functions. In addition to getting a better understanding of settings and uses, I was able to practice shooting different scenes. It was definitely a success. I will be booking more sessions in the future.
