April 20th Workshop- Hampstead, NC

Want to learn how to get those “wow” photos, with perfect lighting and composition? Sonya Ruth Photography will be hosting a workshop for photographers in the Wilmington/Jacksonville area April 20th from 2:00pm-6:30pm.

The class is for people who want to strengthen the areas of

-Posing and their confidence of instructions on posing their clients
-Camera settings and shooting in manual
-Finding your style or strengthening your style. Making your style and brand bold and to leave a lasting impression.
-And then FAQ, which is great for those who have particular questions on stuff they’ve been struggling with.

Also, I will be giving a portfolio critique – Here is the description for it:

We all need to take postiive feedback AND negative feedback and use it to get better. I remember in art class, I felt like I was putting up a master piece on the wall (we all had to hang our artwork) and everyone in the room would critique it. I mean, they’d be honest. It was hard for me at first, but it made me a better artist. That’s exactly what we will do. You will send your ten favorite photos, ten “ok” photos, and your ten worst photos. We will then go from there on how to improve. We will go over it in email and then work at those weak areas in person! I will teach you to get better composition, better lighting, posing, etc.

You will send the photos before the workshop (preferably two weeks before the workshop).

So although up to 10 people will be there, you will definitely have an individual look into your business, portfolio, strengths and weaknesses! You won’t get lost if you are just a beginner, the stuff I will go over is really easy to understand. I’m a kinesthetic learner, meaning I learn and TEACH through steps and visuals. I’m not going to use words you won’t understand, I’ll show you the buttons and give you explanations of how to use them. I taught myself how to shoot in manual, not from reading a “manual,” but practicing over and over until I perfected my images!

This will also be great for those who are already comfortable with their camera. I will work on finding your “style,” your brand, and working on finding on what inspires you and focusing on that!

We will be photographing a wedding styled shoot with a country chic theme! Sooo excited!
