Beginners and Advanced Photography Classes with me offered in Westbrook, Maine studio

I am so excited to announce that I am now going offering photography classes for beginners and for more advanced students. I have done this in the past with both adults and as a teacher at a local high school. Now that I have my studio in Westbrook at the Dana Warp Mill I can offer classes on a more regular basis. 

It's really a lot of fun to learn how to use all the settings on your camera and not have the camera make the choices for you. You have so much more control over the images you create once you learn these basic principles! I help this learning process to be easy and fun!

Here are all the details for the beginner class.  The next class will be on Saturday April 1st from 9:30am-1:30pm. The Advanced Class will be on Saturday April 22nd from 9:30-2:00. A class in Lightroom editing is coming soon as well!

There is a time at the end where you will use your camera and shoot with me too! 

Here are some of the things we will cover : 

  • How to take your camera off auto and begin shooting in manual (making all the choices)

  • How to know which camera settings to use in different situations

  • How to take sharp pictures with a soft blurry background

  • How to get just the right exposure (not too bright, not too dark)

  • How to shoot with all natural light wherever you are

  •  How to take portraits and action shots

  • How to shoot indoors and outdoors

  • We will go over lens types and flash options and more

Don't just take my word for it. Here is what others had to say:

"I loved Jen's workshop and left so excited to shoot more. I loved seeing her examples of images, with recommended settings.  The shooting part was the best because (shooting in manual) actually started to click for me!! I would love to take another class with Jen!" -Renee Palm

"I loved the hands on part - of having us all shoot the same thing and then share what was working for us and what was not. I really appreciated the quick tips on light and how to bounce light around." Sarah

So head on over to the contact page here on my site and drop me a line. I would love to tell you more about the class and get you signed up. Each class will have limited seating so save your spot now! 

Or you can call me 207-318-0467 or Email me

I look forward to getting to giving you more details about the class when you get in touch!
