Photography Class- Girls Night Out! {San Jose Bay Area Photography Classes}

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

ARE YOU EVER FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHING SKILLS???  Then SAVE THE DATE!!!

August 21st, 2015 at 7pm:  Itsy Photography’s Studio, South San Jose  (YES- it’s in a week… I’m hoping to give one last HURRAH before my move to Washington D.C. so that I can teach you the photography skills you’ll need to know to SURVIVE without me while I’m gone. :))))  I’ll be posting more about my move sooooon… I know this may come as a shock to some of you.  It’s all happened quite suddenly.  You can read more about our move HERE!

I get questions ALL THE TIME from Mommies, Grandma’s, Friends, Aunties, etc.. that just want to learn more about how to take a BETTER photo!  Did you know that for the first 2 years of my photography career I was shooting on AUTOMATIC????  YES- the secret is OUT.  It’s true.  MOST of photography isn’t knowing your camera at all.  To me, photography is about TELLING A STORY.  To do this, the most important thing is your subject, the lighting, angles, and the way you capture it all.   To do this, all one needs is a trigger finger, and half of a brain (let’s face it girls, sometimes us Mommies are runnin’ a little on empty…) lol.  THAT’s IT.

Come learn with me and I’ll teach you how to snap GREAT photos with any camera (even your phone camera!) and you’ll LOVE it.  This will be a fun, enjoyable, relaxing, exciting, AMAZING night out with a group of ladies just like YOU.  This will be my trial class to open up more classes, and depending on how this goes I may offer up a field day class where we will go outdoors and put in to practice all we’ve learned.   Spots will be limited, and only those that have taken this first course will be able to register for the 2nd, outdoor class.  Outdoor classes will depend on my ability to fly back home and host some dates.

Snacks, treats,  and drinks will be provided.  YOU. WILL. LOVE. THIS.
