Did you recently (6 years ago) get a new DSLR camera and lens kit from Costco? Are you afraid to experiment with manual settings because you think you’ve found your happy place in that little green square of [A]wesome? Do you just want to take great pictures of your kids, your cat, or your precious moments figurine collection? We can help!

This class has been widely requested and we’ve put together a super FUN, enlightening crash course for you to take your photos from crappy to happy and your insta feed will soon be getting double tapped faster than a…. well nevermind.

Class will include instruction, workbook, and styled hands on photoshoot with  Ampersand Studios. Learn the basics of exposure– setting your aperture, ISO and shutter speed like a pro to get the best outcome along with a touch on composition, posing, lighting and even editing your images.

Disclaimer ***This class is designed for straight up beginners… If you’re a professional photographer looking to hone your craft, this is not for you. This curriculum is designed for people who simply want to take better photos in their everyday life. We will not be talking about the business of photography. Any skill level is welcome to take the class, just be warned that you might be bored if you already know the basics.***
