$39 for a Beginner's Photography Workshop ($125 Value)

For the five-hour Level 1 beginner's photography workshop, participants must bring their own DSLR camera. During the session, Janice Street demonstrates how to use a DSLR camera's basic manual features, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. The lesson covers the role of metering and introduces basic artistic principles such as how to make regular trees look like Van Gogh's fancy ones. Customers also receive half off a Level 2 class to continue honing their skills. New classes are added often; check the schedule for course additions.

Janice Street Photography & Design

As an award winning photographer with over 30 years of experience photographing all types of subjects, Janice Street decided to teach others to do the same. She instills confidence in novice photographers through a series of five-hour workshops, during which she guides students through technical operations, such as setting f-stop and shutter speed, at an easy pace. Students also hone their compositional skills, such as selecting depth of field, as Janice helps them snap challenging shots. She also shows students Photoshop techniques that can improve an image in the editing room, such as balancing an image's colours.

When not teaching photography, Janice contributes to the field. Some of her specialties include candid portraits of children and adults, landscapes, nature shots, architecture, night photography, and action shots. Many of her photographs are available as calendars, books, canvas prints, postcards, greeting cards, DVDs, and screen savers.

Customer Reviews

I very much enjoyed Janice's level 1 class. The point of the class was to learn how to use the other functions of the camera beside the automatic mode. By the end of the 5 hour class I definitely felt more comfortable and ready to practice what Janice taught. Janice is a very good teacher and took time to check in on each of us as we tried out each mini lesson. I plan on signing up for her level 2 class or maybe a one-on-one session.

She is an excellent teacher. Most of the students were in photography for many years including myself. I have learned many techniques from her. Arvind Kamble
