The Shoot Your Kids Workshop is seriously the best beginner’s workshop. Ever. Presented by Benfield Photography, this three hour workshop will teach you to take better images of your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or best friend’s kids.
Though Dale has been a professional photographer for over a decade (check out their blog here) he was seriously stumped when his daughter Ellie first came on the scene seven years ago. Unlike soon-to-be brides at their engagement shoot, this precious newborn could hardly stay awake for five minutes after she ate, let alone pose – how was he supposed to work with that?! Gradually he learned that by combining his background in photojournalism, his life long love of photography, and his adoration of his daughter (and her unique personality) he was able to capture beautiful images of their everyday life. Now he wants to pass these skills along to you!
Whether you have a point and shoot with no fancy settings or a DSLR that hasn’t come out of the box since Christmas, this workshop can help. Whatever equipment you currently have, Dale (and his awesome wife Meredith) will teach you how to use it to take better images of your kids. Lighting, composition, Photoshop tricks – they cover all of these too in everyday language that anyone can understand. These skills will give you images for scrapbooks, blog posts and Facebook updates of which you will be proud!
Dale and Meredith are going to ten different cities in the month of August. The best part? They have offered Mpixers $50 off the cost of the workshop by using the code MPIX50 by July 11th. Awesome, right?! To take advantage of this offer hurry over to the Shoot Your Kids website and then click the “Sign Up!” button. See you there!
