Got a sec to hear about a recent success story? After a recent lesson, a mom lamented that she had already invested loads of time with videos and books to try to learn how to get the image she wanted.
But those things didn’t show her how to use HER specific camera and it’s settings.
After ONE 2 hour lesson giddy, wide grin, practically skipping, excited to put things into practice like actually knowing how to get her camera to focus on what SHE wanted, and using her telephoto lens to get really great portrait shots of her family!
THAT’s why I LOVE helping folks really understand how to USE their cameras! Handouts even have detailed info on your particular camera settings for capturing action, nailing focus, and so much more!
