Beginner’s sessions start with a one-hour training session that teaches photo fundamentals including basic camera settings, shutter speeds, and the principles of lighting. Groups of five or fewer then set out on guided outdoor photography walkabouts through Fort Langley’s photogenic environs. During 2.5-hour advanced classes, students learn to manipulate exposure, correctly employ white balance, and discuss the use of filters and fill flash. Each participant must bring a DSLR digital camera with a memory card or a point-and-shoot camera with adjustable ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Sessions include an 18-page booklet containing the information covered during training, and are held Sunday, Monday, and Saturday. Further registration information is available on LesleyAnn Photography’s Groupon-specific website.
Specializing in family photography, Lesley Ann Bell captures honest and authentic moments in time with each colourful and captivating portrait. During each on-location shoot, she lets her shutter loose on memorable images, snapping a multitude of pictures before winnowing them down to 30 keepers ready for processing and display on prints or online image galleries. Lesley Ann also nurtures nascent shutterbugs through beginner's and advanced DSLR photography classes. Sessions begin with a one-hour training session that teaches photo fundamentals to beginners or advanced lighting techniques to more experienced students. Intimate five-students-or-less classes then migrate outdoors for an hour or more of hands-on experience. With friendly guidance from Lesley Ann, the group puts newly learned principles into practice, training lenses on the memorable landscape of riverbanks, trees, birds, and centaurs combing the grass with metal detectors.
