The photographers at Studio One to One Photography style contemporary portraits of families, kids, and mothers-to-be during personalized shoots. During each session, shutterbugs share suggestions for poses aiming to capture their subjects' best expressions and angles. Afterward, prized portraits are printed out or compressed into video slideshows that can be posted on social networks or hijacked jumbotrons.
PPA member and photographer Pat Guard employs her more than 40 years of experience to teach students essential camera-commanding techniques in her beginner digital-photography classes. During the three-hour course, approximately 15 shutterbugs learn to use their own DSLR cameras to blend image ingredients such as lighting, composition, exposure, and paprika into snazzy snapshots. Uncover the correlation between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to capture individual droplets during a rainstorm, and finally comprehend the inherent meanings behind the numbers on your digital sidekick, putting control into your hands instead of your camera's finicky non-hands. Throughout, Pat also imparts wisdom regarding cleaning and maintenance processes, camera modes, and appropriate lens selection.

For more than 25 years, photographer Ben Dang has told stories through his portraits. He uses a photojournalistic approach to shoot weddings, special events, and mothers making their deli-robbing sons return the sandwich, capturing the small, candid moments he says “usually go unnoticed.” However, Ben can also take more posed family portraits to capture a relaxed moment between couples, parents and a new baby, or extended families gathered into the frame.:m]]
