Utah Photography Workshop with Kristen Duke

Do you guys remember when I reviewed the ebook “Say No To Auto!” by the amazing photographer Kristen Duke? Did you know she offers a “Say No To Auto!” workshop?

Well guess what?! She is coming to Utah to teach this workshop!!!!!!
(Squeal with excitement)!!!
Her beginner’s workshop will be held Saturday, May 28th from 9-11 am in Ogden, Utah.  And where exactly in Ogden?
The Vintage Cupcake. Mmmm..cupcakes.

Kristen says:
Do you have a big fancy camera, but not sure what to do with it?  Did you buy it thinking you’d have images like the professionals because you have a camera like the professionals? When I bought mine 7 years ago, I thought so too, but I became very frustrated when this wasn’t the case.  I’d see amazing images coming from others, and realize I was missing something.  I used to shoot on auto…it’s easy…and the pictures are decent.  But I didn’t want decent, I wanted amazing.  The only way to do that is to make the decision to say NO! to auto and learn the camera’s manual settings.

Come join me for a fun beginners’ photography workshop!

What we’ll discuss:
  • How to use your Digital SLR camera
  • Aperture (f-stop), shutter speed, ISO, and how they all work together
  • Lighting, how to locate the best light
  • Lens suggestions
  • 30 min. of shooting time with discussion and questions
  • Very basic Photoshop tips
  • Ways to get your subjects to relax
  • The importance of capturing the candid moments and how to get them”

And, you know who else is going to be there?
Amy from The Idea Room,
Char from Crap I’ve Made,
and ME.

Now I’m going to turn it over to Char for a little more fun info!
“AND (this is where it gets crazy so hang on to your shorts folks), some of you may remember that I won a Buick for a week last summer at EVO.

Guess when that week is.  Go on, guess.

The very week that I’ll be driving to Ogden for Kristen’s photo class!

So, as a little added incentive, Tam (who lives across the street from me) and I will come pick you up and drive you to the class in a pimp daddy Buick Enclave (if you’re between, say, Herriman and Ogden).”
Sound fun?

And then, shoot Char an email ( and we’ll figure out the transportation details!  She’s been told the Buick can seat seven, so first come first drive. Hope to see you there!
