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!

Senior Model Spotlight – Loren – Woodruff High School

I had a great time with Loren and her mom, who made a great photographer’s assistant, at this session.  We used some areas around Hub-Bub in downtown Spartanburg and the grounds at Milliken to get a mix of urban and rural looks.  I love the way this session turned out.

New Photo Booth rental!

Who doesn’t love a photo booth?

Our fun, easy to use photo booth will be the hit of your reception or event.  Booths are great for wedding receptions, high school reunions, corporate events, and partys.  The entirely black booth will blend into any room and surrounds your guests with curtains, assuring for a silly good time and photographs your guests will keep forever.

 

Why our booth?
