I organized and taught a workshop. I had about 8 photographers, 2 models, and a makeup artist.
The event went pretty well. I don’t assume anyone’s skill level so I basically started from a level where everyone appeared to be comfortable with. And needless to say, there were some complete novices as well as a couple of seasoned veterans. But for the most part, they all had things to learn and I was more than happy to try to explain to them before the shooting actually began.
Unfortunately, 2 of the original 3 models were unable to attend, but the 2 that I did have were real troopers and very patient with the photographers, after-all, this was a learning experience for most of them.
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves as I explained the fundamentals and essential skills needed to get started as a pro photographer or at least become an advanced hobbyist. I also explained to them why I like to shoot tethered whenever I get the opportunity while shooting in a studio or in a controlled set situation.
The Canon family as well as the Nikon family of cameras comes with the drivers to be able to connect your camera to the computer which makes it so much easier to view the pictures rather than try to strain your eyes on the small screen of the back of the camera.
We went over a few other things before my associate got restless and wanted to just let everyone shoot…which I was happy to do. I sat back and observed and answered any questions that anyone had, gave small critiques and tips when asked. All-in-all, it was a good event.
Looking forward to having more. I’ll work on more ideas and themes for a future workshop. I already have one in mind for the Ink lovers out there!
Thanks for reading…and as always…
