I have been busy catching up with several of last year’s workshop attendees. (Busy catching them up on new content!) When I first began offering the Everyday Photographer Workshop, the class was limited to the number of ladies who would comfortably fit in my family room. But that quickly changed when I realized it left me with very little time for one-on-one assistance.
So I reduced class size and beefed up content to include instruction on shooting in manual mode. I wanted to make sure the ladies from the first workshop were on the same page as well. [Only one attendee from that first workshop had an understanding of manual mode so I have slowly but surely been working my way through the group.] Patty being one of those ladies:
I also adjust a few basic settings to every camera that comes through the workshop and like Mary, Patty had also purchased a new camera that needed tweaking. We spent the morning and afternoon catching up on family (her sister Jean had been part of my life for a very long time) and even found a moment or two to snap a couple of pictures:
Patty (an interior designer) was a wealth of inspiring and creative ideas making our time together especially fun. [This coffee shop BTW is the same one Mary and I were at early last month, Dunn Bros. Coffee in the Smith Douglas More house (Eden Prairie) – the COOLEST little place to hang out!]
Despite us getting all sidetracked, she is now shooting in full-on manual mode like a pro. Way to go, Patty!
