Greenville SC Photography Classes at the Kroc Center, August 2013

Michael Lamb Photography is excited to announce a series of Digital SLR Photography Classes in Greenville. Just in time to get to know your camera better before the football season and autumn portraits, Michael is teaching 6 different classes.

Thursday Aug 22, 2013 – Basic DSLR. After a short review of the automatic “scene modes” of your camera, Michael will teach you how and why to get out of the green automatic modes and move towards manual. We will discuss lens choices and start taking control of our cameras through the use of Program modes and ISO.

Thursday Aug 29, 2013 – Sports Photography Workshop. School has just started and that means football season. This hands-on workshop will take place near sunset on the Kroc Center’s beautiful field. We will photograph athletes as the sun sets, learning to use manual controls, ISO and flash to stop motion, even in the dark. Though no indoor sports are taught during this workshops, the techniques learned can be used for indoor sports too!

Thursday Sept 5, 2013 – Advanced DSLR. This class is all about manual exposure. We will discuss aperture and shutter speeds and how, and when, to adjust them for proper exposure and creative effect. The last 30-45 minutes of the class will be hands on, putting to practice what was learned in the first hour.

Thursday Sept 12 and 19, 2013 – Canon & Nikon SLR In-Depth. Michael will help take the fear out of moving all those buttons, and dials, and even teach you navigate through your menus with ease. These classes are Canon & Nikon specific, and though there is no prerequisite, discussion of ISO, aperture and shutter speeds is very limited. The the Basic + Advanced SLR classes are recommended for those wanting to learn manual exposure.

Thursday Sept 26, 2013 – Digital Editing using Adobe Photoshop Elements. Michael will use Elements in a live demonstration. Working with layers is key to using Photoshop Elements well. We will start with layers and build upon it using the most commonly used tools. Learn to correct exposure and color, remove unwanted elements from a picture, merge two images and more. You are not required to own Photoshop Elements to take the class. Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 may be downloaded free, for 30 days, from Adobe before or after the class and is available locally for under $100.00.

Thursday Oct 3, 2013 – Portrait and Flash class. Michael will show you the tricks and tools he uses every day as a portrait photographer. Using a model, you will learn simple, effective shooting methods using flashes and reflectors. This is a very hands on class. Bring your cameras, lenses, flashes and other accessories.

If you have any questions about any classes, please contact Michael Lamb directly at 864-497-3093 or michael@michaellambphotography.com. We look forward to seeing you in class!

Katrina & Blake — Engaged!

What a fun couple! We loved hanging out with Katrina and Blake at our meeting, so we knew an engagement session with them would be a blast! And they were absolute troopers to do this shoot at Asheville’s Arboretum in the mountains in Antartic temperatures. We thought the pictures turned out really beautiful and had to share!
