The invaluable training and mentoring that I received was the most important part and her kindness and generosity was most appreciated.
I would ask what they are interested in learning and find out more about their current skills and equipment.
We would work with their camera and make sure they understand how to best use their equipment.
We could practice both outside and inside in different lighting conditions.
We would then upload their photos and see where they could improve.
I would also teach them how to edit and improve their images with color, light, cropping and focus on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
I have taken many years of classes at the International School of Photography in NYC and trained other beginner photographers to better enhance their skills.
$200 for a 1 hour lesson
$375 for a 2 hour lesson
I keep meeting beginner photographers who want to learn to better photographers.
Mostly women in their 30's to 40's.
I love shooting parties and getting great candid moments and then hearing they are so happy with the special moments they received. That gives me great pleasure.
I would suggest they make sure they like the teachers work and that they feel comfortable working with them.
To understand what they want to learn, and if they feel they can learn from this teacher.
