Private Digital Photography Lessons and Tours

June 22, 2019  •  1 Comment

If you are new to digital photography or just can't get out of using Auto mode or need some in the field instruction, please contact me for private lessons.  There is no better way to learn than from personal one-on-one instruction.  Yes, YouTube has great material, but I guarantee I will advance your photography knowledge much faster than watching videos.  I'll help you set up your camera menus to get the best results.  If needed, I can cover all the basic photography terms you will need to understand, such as;

  • What is aperture and how does it apply to depth of field?
  • What is shutter speed and what is the best speed to use in different scenarios?
  • ​​​​​​​What is ISO and why is it important?
  • How do I use other shooting modes like aperture priority, shutter priority or even the scary manual mode?
  • What is exposure compensation?

For those wanting more advanced instruction, I will help you understand, for example;

  • HDR or high dynamic range photography
  • Focus stacking and why and when it's needed
  • Shooting multiple images to later blend in Photoshop
  • How to shoot long exposure photographs and what equipment is needed
  • Proper focusing techniques to ensure maximum sharpness in your photos

If all you want is help finding the best locations to shoot in western North Carolina, I can get you into some prime locations.  Whether it be one of the hundreds of waterfalls we have to the grand landscapes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I will get you there at the right time to capture beautiful photographs.

For more information, use the contact form to reach me.

Yes, there are two kinds of techniques, the police one and the normal one. Some people just for enjoying and the rest blurred; some others hate joy and have a very short focus.
