Become YOUR Family’s photographer
With a 90-minute Snap Happy Photography Workshop
Blaming your digital camera for sub-par pictures?
Sick of settling for blurry, dim, unflattering images that make you cringe?
Know you need to read your camera’s manual but can’t make it past page 2?
Here’s the secret: it’s not about your equipment, it’s about being EQUIPPED with simple know-how. Documenting your life’s story and capturing precious moments from your children’s childhood goes beyond buying a digital camera, it requires knowing how to configure settings and set up a great shot at a moment’s notice. My clients hire me for family photo sessions and newborn portraits, but a lot of life happens when I’m not around. This workshop is designed to help you become YOUR family’s photographer and capture the moments in stunning snapshots.
the Snap Happy Workshop provides practical tips that immediate improve your family snapshots.
What is Snap Happy: Photography 101?
This 90-minute hands-on workshop is designed to equip moms and dads with the photography fundamentals that capture spontaneous childhood moments with polish and prowess. The workshop translates theory into simple tricks that you can quickly apply to each family snapshot, regardless of what camera model you’re working with. Professional photographer Julie Kubal will teach you the skills and together you’ll put them into practice alongside other local parents.
Who should sign up for Snap Happy:
Snap Happy – Photography 101 is designed for busy moms and dads who want to take better pictures of their children and family. These parents have digital cameras and a desire for beautiful portraits, but struggle to find the right settings and strategies to create quality photographs.
Most parents take LOTS of photos of their kids, most of which aren’t worthy of sticking up on the fridge – movement is out of focus, kids are out of frame, and you can’t help but feel that something was lost in translation. Rather than snapping thousands of images and hoping one or two are worthy, Julie will teach you how to hone your focus, apply the same technique used by the professionals, and snap happy.
What you will learn:
- Photography fundamentals to break free from pre-set shooting modes
- Five simple strategies for setting up the perfect shot
- How to work with all lighting levels
- Key components of beautiful composition
- How to organize and preserve your memories for headache free enjoyment
- Time: 1 PM to 3 PM (90 minutes class with extra time for practice and Q&A)
- Date: Saturday, July 11
- Price: $60
50% of your registration fee will be donated back to the Breast Feeding Center!
- What to bring
In order to participate in the Snap Happy workshop all you need is a camera (a DSLR is NOT required) and a positive attitude. Charge your camera, bring your equipment, take some notes, enjoy hands-on practice with instant feedback, and watch your photography skills improve with every frame.
