Robin Adams Photography Workshops

Do you know what ISO means? What's an f-stop? Wonder what all those funky dials are on your camera? Why does that symbol keep coming up when you flip the gizmo-thingy? It's crazy how sophisticated cameras are these days. And you bought it hoping for fabulous photos, right? But it’s just not happening, and the manual isn't any help.

I can help! I love to teach photography and I currently have several workshops throughout the year:

Basic Principles: This is your chance to learn what the dials do, which ones to fiddle with, and which buttons don't matter. Learn how to lock in focus once and for all. Figure out what ISO, shutter speed, and aperture is and how all three work together. Best of all, we'll learn how to take photos in manual mode. Yes, really! Manual!

Getting Artistic: Putting it all together to get really beautiful images, not just snapshots. We’ll talk about framing your subject in an interesting, artistic way, the rule of thirds, catch lights, and depth of field.

I will be workshops all through the year in 2013, starting in early January. The cost for each workshop is $40 per person, prepaid. We'll have models, munchies and drinks, and a great location. After an hour or so inside with instructions and demonstrations, we'll go outside to continue learning and practice, practice, practice.

If you would like to sign up for BOTH workshops, I offer a special price of just $70.

Private Workshops

So you have this camera and you have very specific way of learning . . . I can help! If the classroom setting isn't for you, or you have learned a lot, but want to take everything to the next level, you may want a Private Workshop. This is a one-on-one learning experience that will include a mini safari and critiques by e-mail or phone for 30 days. This Workshop isn't as structured as the regular workshop, we meet first at my studio,then go where you like for a mini-safari. The Workshop will last four to six hours (weather, light and your patience permitting). Bring your camera, the manual and plenty of memory and we'll figure out those settings once and for all.

Whether you love landscapes, macro photography, portraiture or someday dream of photographing a wedding, this learning experience will launch you farther and faster than trying to figure it all out on your own. Beginners, intermediate and advanced students are welcome! The cost for private workshops is $245 per person, payable in advance and is non-refundable.

If you're interested in signing up for any of these workshops, please go to this form and I'll get you all set up!
