Venue for Modeling Shoot: FBC Picayune
This past weekend I hosted and taught the basic photography workshop class that I offer. Through a series of events and my new venue double booking me…I ended up hosting here at our place…and I loved it!!!!
As I welcomed each of the ladies…seeing a past client…and meeting two new clients for the first time…I was excited to jump into teaching them all about their cameras…what their cameras can do for them and how they can operate them!
Too many times a manual is still a foreign language to people…I know I find that with myself when learning something new…the manual just doesn’t cut it sometimes! As these girls began to learn more of what ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture do for them…I could see their excitement coming to life! It was like FINALLY…I now know how to get the pictures I’ve been wanting!
During the workshop…it never fails…it gets heavy…overwhelming…and deep. I remind them to just bare with me…continue to soak it in and not shut off their brains…because in just a few minutes it will all tie together and MAKE SENSE! It happens every time…the light bulbs go off and it CLICKS!
One of my goals in teaching workshops is to be sure that I’m not just showing and teaching…but that the attendees are DOING. If they aren’t doing then they aren’t learning…they may get great shots when I’m around…but I want them to get great shots even when they get home and I’m not around. That’s what learning is all about…doing it on your own!
A HUGE thanks to Grace for being our adorable model and to Roses and Lemons for donating the floral crown for the workshop! If you are in need of a floral crown go check her work out…I love the simplicity and beauty she creates with these headpieces. (psttt…be on the lookout with a giveaway from Roses and Lemons VERY SOON on the blog!!)
Looking down through the images you can see the workshop attendees hard at work…putting their knowledge into action…some behind the scenes of our model shoot…and a little perspective of our model trying to decide which camera to look at!! ENJOY!
