If you know anything about documentary photography or Day in the Life sessions, you know how powerful a photo can be. Some photos just speak to you and bring you back to the time when you first saw your newborn child, your kid coming home from their first day of school, learning to ride a bike, or seeing a loved one in a photo that makes you travel back in time. I know photography has become so accessible with digital and DSLR cameras becoming so affordable (see the top cameras under $600 blog) that every mom wants one so they can start preserving their kids childhood.
The one problem with going out and spending a lot of money on an expensive camera is that now you probably don't know how to use it and you are wondering why your photos don't look as good as everyone else's photos. I mean, you just spent a lot of money on this camera, you should have great photos now, right?? One of the big reasons why your photos don't look as good as a professional's is you probably aren't shooting in manual mode. Manual mode is going to change your life. You will be able to control the scene by just hitting a few buttons and scrolling a few dials. Now don't get me wrong, learning manual mode isn't going to be easy. It's like learning Algebra or Calculus all over again. There are other, more simple ways that you can change your photography too like learning to see moments or setting up the scene and working with available light(there is a free download for 5 imperfectly perfect locations in your house to take pictures on the blog to get your creative spark started!).
katherine.ruth photography now has workshops available that is structured and meant for moms who are new to photography. During these 3 hour workshops we will go over the technical side including; shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, and focusing. Along with the fun stuff like, composition, lighting, and capturing moments. Best of all, you will have a chance to win a free Day in the Life session for your family. Other perks of coming to this workshop is you will be added to a Facebook group that is only for people who attend katherine.ruth photography workshops, where you will be able to continue your learning and be able to ask me questions easily.

About a month ago, I had a workshop scheduled and not too many people signed up (actually no one did *huge sad face*). I did have a lot of interest and I heard a lot of people wanted to but the timing was bad. So I would love to hear your thoughts on what what days, times, and locations work best for you. I would love to have a workshop and be able to teach and help you grow so you can start preserving all those family memories.
I have a survey below to help come up with my next workshop date. You don't need to put your name, email, address, or phone number. Just simply tell me what days and times work for you so you don't miss out on the next one. :)
