Saturday classes are held in Sacremento. Sunday adventures take place in Folsom.

Burgeoning photographs learn how to operationally navigate their cameras while familiarizing themselves with different settings. They will find what lenses are best for each situation, how to read light, and frame for proper composition. By the end of the workshop, students will have more photographic confidence in their artist undertakings. The workshop also includes how to pose and read light for all situations relating to portraits in an outside setting and go over the benefits of shooting with a studio set up.

The Saturday class includes an introduction to photography, including how to manually set exposure on a digital camera and basic composition. The next day, a hands-on shoot lets students put their knowledge into practice. Interested students can also add on to their package with instruction in product photography for the online marketplace for an additional fee. Cameras are not required for the photo expedition, but they are encouraged.

XSight Photography

At XSight Photography, founders Gail DeMarco and Nicole Sepulveda and their team of talented photographers snag intimate and exciting moments both on location or in one of their two studios. Whether it's genuine laughter in a colorful family photo shoot, a burst of personality in a senior portrait, or the radiance emanating from an expecting mother in a pregnancy session, the photography team strives to push the creative envelope in the portraits they capture to forge images that demand your attention. Their wedding and engagement photography is equally inspired—for the team, capturing a quick, knowing look between the groom and his father is just as important as a shot of the newlyweds walking down the aisle. They also capture those moments through videography services and help others learn to capture them for themselves during photography classes.

Customer Reviews

The class was great and I loved how helpful the entire staff was about everything! My mother and I took the class together and we learned so much. Looking forward to future classes with the XSight team!

Carlos was very patient and fun to be around for the photo shoot. He let the personalities of our girls come out in the shoot. The shoot was very fun for all of us.
