Run by a husband-and-wife power team, Lamar Photography Studios blends the couple’s artistic and design talents to produce high-quality, expressive images. Nascent shutterbugs learn to wrangle their cameras in the first basics workshop, grasping control of such foundational functions as ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and glimpsing into to the esoteric world of histograms. During the lesson, the Lamars lift the veil of mystery from digital photography as pupils learn to use auto or manual focus, as well as how to store digital images.
The second basics workshop gets hands pixel-greasy as students manually alter their image-nabbers’ settings and funnel more creativity into their work. Burgeoning photogs shove backgrounds between blurriness and clarity with depth-of-field practice, while acquiring enough knowledge of composition and perspective to shoot their surroundings in all five dimensions. A Q&A at the end of each workshop neatly addresses questions from “Why are my images still too dark?” to “How do I stop my camera from taking calls mid-shoot?”
Lamar Photography Studios holds its lessons within the studio and outside in the verdant Agritopia community, resplendent with picturesque porches, tree-lined vistas, and a complete absence of mailbox-mauling bears.
