The 2009 Wise Photography Workshop dates are now being released for (Saturday)February 28th and (Saturday) March 14th.Â These will be open to the first 12 people to register for each date.Â This will be based on a first come first served basis.Â To secure your spot for the workshop you will need to contact me for payment instructions and your spot will be held for five days.Â If payment is not received your spot will be opened up for someone else.
To understand my goal for these workshops I am going to describe the ideal person to attend.Â You have just purchased your first dslr camera and are learning how to use your different lenses.Â You love to take pictures and would like to improve your skills.Â You are still using the GREEN BOX on your camera or the running man, the tulip, or the mountain when you are shooting your pictures.Â If you shootÂ 10 pictures there might be one or twoÂ “good ones” in there.Â Basically it comes down to the fact that you are tired of your camera screwing up your pictures.Â By shooting in the green box and allowing your camera to make all the decisions you are not in control.Â So if that describes you and your camera in a nut shell then these photography workshops are aimed right at you.Â This is not a workshop aimed at professionals or really even wannabe pros, so relax and let down your guard as we have all started at one time or another in the same place.
A digital SLR camera is needed for these workshops.Â This is a camera that you can change the lenses.Â This would be like the CanonÂ Rebel series, Canon 30D – 40D – 50 D, or the NikonÂ D80, D90, etc.Â These are all just examples.
These workshops will focus on the basics of each of these areas…shutter speeds, aperture, finding and seeing light, natural light and flash, Adobe PhotoShop and Adobe LightRoom, and letting your creativity out when taking your pictures.
The workshop fee is $199 per person.Â There will be an early bird discount for anyone who registers before January 3rd.Â The early registration fee will be $150.00.Â So this would make a perfect Christmas gift for that person that is impossible to buy for on Christmas.
