I am soooo excited to be sharing this with you!!
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the "Capturing True Emotion" photography workshop by Val Westover and Stephanie Adriana. It was absolutely fantastic and has taken my latest photography endeavors to all new heights!! Before the workshop, I knew a little about adjusting ISO, but knew next to nothing about aperture, shutter speed, metering, etc. I'd taken maybe 3 photos in manual mode, but didn't really know what I was doing. All that's changed now!
While I don't know for sure how many people were there, it was well over 100--a room full of all levels of photographers eager to learn (and all levels of cameras--while most had dslr's, plenty had various types of point-and-shoots). Some might be concerned with the size, but it was not a problem at all. Val & Stephanie did a great job of presenting the information and they had two large screens, which made it easy to see. For the four hours in the morning workshop, we went through Val's guide to "understanding the basic elements of photography" (we each received our own workbook-style copy) based on his book.
Everything was presented in a easy-to-follow, step-by-step manner. I could immediately see their passion not only for photography, but for sharing with others! And I LOVE their mission statement: "
Pretty cool, huh?!
