Basic Photography for SL Models
Over the course of 3 separate workshops, I plan to go over all the basics for how to do your own SL photography. The course assumes no prior knowledge of SL photography. It will take you from the basics and get you to the point of taking decent snapshots using all the features SL has to offer. If you are new to SL photography or just want a solid review, these workshops are for you. The course is open to everyone. Each week I will give the same workshop twice, once on Thursday at 5 PM and again on Saturday at 12:30 PM.
Workshop #1: Intro
Thursday, June 19 @ 5 PM and Saturday, June 21 @ 12:30 PM

Workshop #2: Composition and lighting
Thursday, June 26 @ 5PM and Saturday, June 28 @ 12:30 PM
