1-on-1 Nikon DSLR Photography Lesson with Rain in St. Petersburg Florida

Rain photographing a fountain in downtown St. Petersburg during our first photography lessonI met Rain on a Monday morning for the first of our four 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lessons together in the downtown St. Petersburg Florida area.  Like many people I meet here who have not really been to this part of St. Petersburg before, she was very impressed with its beauty.  Rain is ready to make a significant investment in her photography, of course starting with her buying a 4-pack of my DSLR Photography Lessons, and also in gear too.  We began by discussing which Nikon is best for her and we both agreed the Nikon D600 paired with the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens would be the best way to get started filling out a camera bag for her photography needs.  She will have the camera for our second lesson.  It will be my first time to get hands on with that camera as well so I am looking forward to it.

Rain already had a good amount of photography knowledge, so I helped her organize it in teaching her my 5-step process for shooting in manual exposure mode and showing her around a Nikon DSLR camera body.  I look forward to our next photography lesson after she does some shopping!
