DO YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS, but don't know where to start? DID YOU JUST PURCHASE A NEW, FANCY CAMERA? DO LARGE GROUP LEARNING EXPERIENCES INTIMIDATE YOU?

In this three-hour workshop, created exclusively for those just starting out, we will teach you the very basics of photographic concepts. We will give you the tools to understand the differences between point-and-shoots and D-SLR cameras, how to use the equipment, and the technical basics to get you off on the right foot, in a judgment-free zone for learning.  BlueHour will lead small group sessions in order to provide personalized attention and hands-on instruction, and each session includes ample opportunity to practice your skills on-location with real-time guidance and feedback.


I really enjoyed this workshop, it was a great location and the perfect length, and amount of information that I felt I understood, but wasn’t overwhelmed.
