Hello: A WorkshopPhotography Workshop for Beginners



Early this December, I had the awesome opportunity to host my first photography workshop “Hello: A Workshop”, in downtown Peterborough. The workshop was aimed at those in the beginning stages of photography. We spent the morning working through the basics of how to properly understand and operate our gear. In the afternoon Alicia and Anderson graciously allowed us to use them as subjects (easy subjects right?!). I had the awesome privilege to photograph not only Alicia and Anderson’s engagement photographs but also their wedding! Thanks so much to Bella from Flowers by Kay for the beautiful flower crown, who customized it just for Alicia! We spent the remainder of the afternoon working through the basics of Lightroom editing software. It was a fantastic day and I was so thankful for the opportunity to provide a workshop for those starting out. It’s amazing to see those who participated already applying the principles from our workshop to their own businesses and photography. As Ben Sasso says, “Community over competition.”

Here are a few images that I took while demonstrating how to interact with subjects:
