Tonight, I am checking off one of my resolutions by starting photography class and I am so excited! After attending two photography design camps at Alt Summit, I already feel more comfortable shooting in manual mode on my camera (similar one) and hopefully that feeling will only improve.
At Alt, the duo behind Blue Lily Photography and Nicole Gerulat really explained things in an “easy-to-understand-even-for-an-amateur-way” and lucky for you, they both offer classes to help you shoot better images. Nicole’s Classes are online and she has a book, Photo 101, which I am currently reading.
During the Tabletop Photography design camp, Nicole set up sample photo shoots to show us how she would shoot the image. Then we were able to practice while Nicole provided her critique. Here are a few before and after shots.
Before: wrong angle, too much light
After: Not perfect by any means but the color and detail on the necklace pops
Before: Too zoomed in, too bright
After: Getting better, but still a looooong way to go
After: Once again, getting better but not there yet
