Beginning Photographer All-Day Spring Workshop

April 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Beginning Photography Workshop

Limited to 15 beginning photographers for the greatest participant-instructor ratio

This is a comprehensive, in-depth, all-day beginners’ workshop, designed to give beginning photographers a lot of individualized, hands-on instruction with a strong focus on having a whole lot of fun. The individual attention will ensure you get instruction geared to your particular skill level and to what you are interested in. Some of the subjects that will be covered are a review of equipment options; equipment maintenance; how to hold the camera; how to arrange subjects within the frame; various camera modes and settings; how and why to change aperture, shutter speed, and ISO; and an introduction to various resources so you can learn even more after the workshop.

“I went into this workshop with zero experience other than point-and-shoot on automatic. In just one day, I was able to go from boring, ordinary photos to extraordinary art, all while having fun.” — Kayla F.

“This workshop is a great deal and a fun way to learn about your camera—new or old. You learn one basic function at a time, practice, get instant feedback, and most importantly, you learn why before moving on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend this workshop as opposed to just reading a book or taking a class. Colby makes it a fun and inspirational day!” — Ann B.

“Colby is an exceptional and unique instructor. He’s professional, yet down to earth. It’s obvious he loves photography and genuinely wants to encourage others.” — Kay M.

The beginning photographers’ workshop is for people who have just gotten a camera or who have had a camera and want to learn the basics.

  • Mainly for people with cameras that have interchangeable lenses. (This isn’t required, but these participants will get the most benefit from the experience.)
  • Lots of hands-on practice.
  • Lots of instruction and exercises.
  • Plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

What you’ll need to bring:

  • Your camera and any other camera equipment you have.
  • Download to your cellphone your camera manual and the manual for any other camera equipment you bring (found on the manufacturer’s website).
  • A fully charged cellphone with YouTube app.
  • Comfortable shoes, layered clothing.
  • Water and snacks.
  • Money for lunch and maybe dinner.

Rain Date: In case of bad weather, the workshop will be delayed two weeks to April 24th.
