A few weekends ago I spent the day with 8 friends and we talked about apertures, f-stops and ISO. It was my third time hosting fun : 101 and every time I get so excited to see people start to understand how to really do what they want to do with their cameras.
I try to make it as simple as possible because even though I took a few photography classes at community college when I first started out, I really learned by just focusing on the basic settings, figuring out how those settings relate to each other, and practicing a lot.
After we spent the morning talking about the basics, we went out to the park and my friend Lisa joined us to be our lovely model.
Lisa has a lovely blog called With Style and Grace , which is devoted to gluten-free entertaining, and I have personally been inspired by it (Monday I made greens + white beans!) and after we shot around she even gave us some tips on staying motivated when you are teaching yourself photography.
Enjoy these shots that we took at the workshop, cause Lisa is smart AND pretty.

Thanks to everyone who came – I can’t wait to see what you do with your new skills!
