I met Sara on a bright sunny Tampa morning in Curtis Hixon Park for a 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lesson with her newly acquired Canon T3i. She has always taken a lot of photos with a point & shoot camera and her iPhone, and now wanted to build on her photography resume with learning how to shoot with a DSLR. She was enthusiastic about learning my 5-step process for making a well exposed and sharp photograph in any shooting situation. Despite not having any photography term knowledge previously, she was able to remember the 5-steps from memory by the end of our 2-hour lesson. Well done!
Curtis Hixon Park provided us a very good variety of spots all within a small area that had plenty of subject matter to practice on from controling the background DoF, photographing moving subjects to making portraits in the shade. It was my first time to have a lesson at that park and probably will not be the last for students wanting lessons in Tampa.
I may be meeting Sara again before she heads off to college at the end of the summer. I look forward to continuing to help her improve her photography knowledge and skills.
