this one is for the moms & dads – tinley park family photographer

How many of you have taken the plunge and bought a DSLR camera to capture your family without the lag of the point & shoot?  I hear from clients & friends often that they have DSLR and keep it on auto as they are not sure what else to do with all the buttons and sometimes just use their iphone instead of bringing it along!!

So this spring, I started to work with a few women individually to help them use their DSLR out of auto!  I am the type that learns hands on better – so I felt instead of trying to put together a manual when everyone’s camera is slightly different and offer a few classes that one on one help may work better.  It was so fun to watch the “Ah-ha” moments as they saw their pictures lose that “auto” look and see more natural image that more depth & blur.  The first step is learning and then practice practice practice.  So as summer is here {even without the summer temps} I wanted to offer this again!
