St. Louis Photography Class for Parents {Giveaway!} #STL



Two of my resolutions for 2014 includes pictures. First, I want to learn more about taking pictures. Here I have 3 adorable children and a nice DSLR camera, but I just don’t know what I am doing and I’m not always happy with the pictures I’ve taken. The second resolution was to get into the picture more with my family. I have so many pictures of my husband with them but like most Moms, not many with me.

That’s why I was SO excited to learn about the Camera Love Class hosted by Kristie Cromie of L Photographie in St. Louis.

L Photographie is a local St. Louis photography company with a studio in the Central West End. Kristie started the company in 2003 and is an amazing family photographer. Below are just some of her pictures of her family.


Camera Love Class



What to expect at the class
We’ll spend the first two hours learning about the camera and settings to take full advantage of it with natural light. I’ll have a presentation, as we learn camera settings and ask questions along the way. Then, we’ll spend about 45 minutes actually shooting* (props; such as dolls and stuffed animals, not people) while I walk around and help with settings and give suggestions. The remaining time will be spent on what to do after you’ve shot; file storage, editing, printing, etc, along with some Q&A, giveaways and vendor discounts.
*Please do not bring your kids along to class. I want to make sure you have full attention on me and your camera.

What to bring/What’s provided
Don’t forget your camera! Also bring along any extra lenses you have, and your camera’s manual if you can find it.  It doesn’t matter what brand of camera you have for the class, but I am a Canon user and most familiar with those.  Although, I have used Nikon and Fuji’s.  For another model, if I can’t locate something on your camera, I will look it up and find it for you!  I will have some of my lenses here you can play with as well, (for the Canon users). I will be providing notebooks that include tips and pens for you to take notes, plus drinks & snacks to keep your brains nourished for learning – As well as some exciting giveaways!

    Oh my goodness what a great giveaway! If I win, I want to work on portrait shooting ~ I’ll be living in Guatemala this summer and want to take some good portraits in the orphanage I’ll be working at! :)

    I have had my DSLR for 5 years now and *still* can’t shoot confidently in manual. I have had my eye out for a class like this for quite some time, it sounds perfect!
