Nashville Photography Workshops – First Class Completed!

What a day, what a day!

Yesterday we had the first installment of this Spring’s IN-CAMERA workshops, and even with the little rain we had on and off, it went splendidly :) Brains were filled with information, ate good food, did some awesome shooting, then some great snacks and lastly finished with a killer session on our post processing via Adobe Lightroom.

It is super awesome that these workshops are sponsored by Expo Imaging & Westcott Lighting, because that means we have more gear to share as we’re shooting AND FOR EVERY SHOOTING & POST CLASS WE HAVE A GIVEAWAY!!! We are giving away one free Expo Disk (valued at $99) at every Shooting & Post photography workshop! How awesome is that??

Thanks to Nashville Event Lighting for use of their projector and to Southern Events, a great and reputable wedding rental company for the chairs!

Yesterday was fantastic and we can’t wait for our next installment of the workshops!! We still have a FEW seats left for Shooting & Post on April 10th.

Enjoy the shots from the day!

We started off at our house here in Franklin with some teaching time.

Then after lunch at Blue Coast Burrito, we headed out into Franklin for some shooting time!

We demonstrated how to shoot EVERYTHING in the camera exactly the way you want it from color, to exposure and composition, so that your editing time is next to nothing. Editing time on this image? 3 seconds.

It was sooooo muddy and we all got our shoes covered in mud and yuck! It is a shame to see the converse looking this way!!

We all had sooo much fun and everyone was having a great time despite the cold.
