Photography Workshop for Beginners

Got a fancy camera but don’t know how to make the most of it?  This workshop may be for you.  I will teach you the basics of photography and how to shoot in manual mode so that you have full control of your camera.  I will show you an easy approach to find the perfect setting and provide you with a cheat sheet so that you can continue to practice.

Do I need any prior experience?

No.  This workshop is for beginners.  Bring your manual if you don’t know how to change the settings on your camera.  We can help you with most models of Canon & Nikon DSLRs – other models you may want to bring your manual just in case.

What kind of camera do I need?

A DSLR is ideal, but any camera where you can shoot in manual mode will work.

I know you usually shoot film, so do I also have to shoot film for this class?

Not at all.  I’m teaching you the basics of photography, which applies to all cameras.   I will be bringing my digital camera so that I can instantly demonstrate, so bring yours too!

What if I know nothing about photography?

I taught high school for 5 years where I routinely differentiated my instruction, so no prior knowledge is required.  If you wanted to prepare though, it would be helpful to know how to change your ISO, aperture, and shutter speed before class (just where those buttons are) – but again, it’s not a requirement.

Where and when is this workshop held?

Tentatively 9am in Pasadena, CA on October 20th.  More details will be sent to you after you’ve enrolled.

What else do I have to bring?

A working camera with batteries, and something to take notes with.

What is the investment and how do I pay?

Tuition is $310 and can be paid via Paypal on the button below.  Click below to reserve your spot today.  All of my workshops in the past have sold out and I expect the same for this.


why take boudoir photos

As our 7th wedding anniversary is just around the corner, I reminisce about those days, who we were, and how much we’ve grown.  I remember one significant feeling I experienced was feeling like I was transitioning from being a girl to a woman, and that feeling was later enhanced when I became a mother.  I used to think that marriage was no big deal, just signatures on a piece of paper.  Why would our relationship change just because we have a change in title, right?  But after being married, I slowly learned and embraced what it meant for two to become one.  I am now not only responsible for my own life, but his too (this feeling was again augmented when I became a mother).

During the transition from carefree girl to responsible wife (and eventually even more responsible mother), I felt a change in me that I didn’t quite know how to explain, but one form of expression and documentation I did was having boudoir photos taken.  While “gift for him” was the excuse that got me to do it, it ended up really being a gift for myself.  Having these intimate photos taken allowed me to embrace myself for who I was, and though I was so nervous about my insecurities, such an intimate photo shoot actually made me forget my insecurities.   I felt so empowered and beautiful.   I am so grateful that I documented this transition in womanhood.

Would you have boudoir photos taken?  Have you?  I’d love to hear your experience with boudoir.
