    Say No To Auto Beginning Photography Video Workshop {Giveaway}

    Posted by  ·  January 11, 2014

    I believe learning a little about the basics of photography can make a huge difference in your pictures!  I wish I knew a lot more.  In fact I just received a new camera and have a lot to learn!  So in the spirit of that I checked out my friend Kristen Duke’s Beginner Photography Video Workshop~Say NO to Auto.  I am kind of a visual learner so this video is perfect for me — but don’t forget to check out the companion book “Say Not To Auto” because it’s awesome too!

    Here is some info from Kristen herself…

    Do you have a fancy camera that you don’t know how to use?  Did you buy it thinking you’d take images like the professionals because you have a camera like the professionals?   I used to shoot on auto…it’s easy…and the pictures are decent.  But I didn’t want decent, I wanted amazing.  The only way to do that is to make the decision to Say NO to Auto and learn the camera’s manual settings.  I’ve outlined 3 basic steps, and I teach you how to find the right buttons on your camera, so you can have more confidence to produce beautiful images yourself!

    She used to teach work shops but this is better than that because you can watch it once (or ten times like me)!

    photo workshop

    What’s in the Video?

    • How to find the right buttons to push on your camera
    • Aperture (f-stop)
    • Shutter speed
    • ISO
    • Lighting, examples
    • Lens suggestions
    • flashes of each page of my Say NO to Auto e-book within the video

    What is not in the video?

    • This is not a business workshop. We will not be discussing how to start a business.
    • We won’t go over advanced editing techniques with Photoshop. It is important to get it right in the camera first.
    • We will not discuss flash, strobe, or backdrop setups.
    • Though the pages of the e-book flash across the video screen, the download for the e-book is a separate  purchase

    Purchase

    It costs $150 a seat for the LIVE Say NO to Auto Workshops. The downloadable VIDEO workshop sells for $60.  The pages of the e-book are embedded in the video, but some like to purchase the e-book separately to study when away from the video. Purchase Ebook here for $10.
