Evangeline Renee {ONE Day Photography Workshop} Franklin, IN (Number 1)

 Well, my {ONE Day Photography Workshop} was a blast!
It being my first one I really didn't know how the day was going to flow and all,
would I have too much information for one day,
too little?
Would everyone get bored or totally overwhelmed?
There was only way to find out, and it happened nine days ago.
So here are the things I learned and will be implementing in any other workshops I do.
1. Having my husband tag-team teaching with me was awesome!
He loves explaining techy stuff and helping people until they understand tricky concepts.
The attendees commented that they liked having two of use there for question answering and shooting help.
{Well cool, because I think we make a pretty good team.}
2. I we do indeed have plenty to talk about and I'm going to have to make sure to stay on schedule as much as possible.
I initially thought most of my interest would be from teenage-twenty year old girls and guys, well yes it was but I also got sign-ups from moms and dads,
and so this first workshop happened to turn into a moms workshop.
And let me tell you, they were a fun group of moms and I loved having each of them there!
Overall, it was a great time!
Here is a little recap of our day,
from teaching in the morning, shooting during the day, a picnic lunch and a lovely senior shoot in the evening.

My weekends are filling up but I would like to get some more workshops in during the next few months.
I'll keep you posted.
Oh, I gotta tell you my embarrassing story of the day!
So, I was giving one of the attendees some instruction about her camera when all the sudden I got like my first real bloody nose of my life!
I was like Ahhhh! what am I supposed to do?!
So for five or ten minutes of the workshop I was sitting in my chair, pinching my nose with my head held back feeling really stupid.
lol, Thankfully Tim could take over with some more instruction while I sat awkwardly on the side. 
Anyways, good times.

The next post will be about our lovely model we had at the workshop.

I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day!

  2. Thanks so much to you both for a fantastic day, Evy, and for teaching me more about those tricky manual settings, and composition, etc.! You made the day so special for us all! The food was amazing, and it was so fun being with everyone there, learning together. Love the video, too! :) Yep, as 'Eden' said ... we're movie stars, now! lol! Without a doubt, you and Tim make a great team! It all went so well ... such a blessing and a joy to be part of your day. I'm looking forward to more of your exceptional expertise, and those images you captured of our adorable senior model, too! You two have a blessed week! :)

    P.S. Sure hope you haven't experienced any more of those nosebleeds!

  3. Evy,

    Please don't hate me if I'm wrong, and if I am I blame it on the camera and your shirt! But...are you pregnant? *looks hopeful*

    God bless,
    Vicki
