Even though it is still only mid-April, my first 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lesson with Jahaan and her Canon T3i felt like the first lesson of the summer! Jahaan likes to make cakes and was not happy with her photographs of them. She felt they were not preserving the memory of her baking efforts properly. So she took a general photography lesson with me to learn how to use her Canon properly in manual mode. She can then take those skills and not only apply them to photographing her cakes, but anything else as well.
Jahaan had heard of most common photography terms, but did not know how they worked together to make a well exposed and sharp photograph in any given shooting conditions. Having taught hundreds of 1-on-1 photography lessons, my methodology for teaching how to do this step by step is very refined and possible to be understood by even a total beginner. Of course having some prior photography knowledge helps!
Jahaan was quick to learning her way manually around her DSLR and using the meter and reading the histogram to see how well a shot came out in the field. I look forward to seeing her cake photographs!
