Cork & Click Photography Class

Do you find yourself daydreaming of the day that you, YES YOU, can learn to take beautiful photos of your friends & family? Join me for a morning of sipping & studying how to capture beautiful photos with your camera! This course is for beginners, and priced as so at only $40 per person. We'll cover the following:

• What is a DSLR camera and how are they different?
• What are 'modes' and how do I know when to use each?
• Why is light so important in taking powerful photos?
• How do I get that cool, blurry background?
• Why is composition so important?
• Why would I ever want to change my camera’s lens?? And how do I even do that?!

Practice makes perfect, so we'll be doing lots of 'clicking' with both our mimosa glasses AND our cameras. BYOC - bring your own camera, but Mimosas provided! 🥂

This event will be held at The Gathering Space located above Very Violet Boutique in downtown Lee’s Summit. Very Violet has the most ADORABLE home decor, along with some fun accessories. Bring your pocketbook because you’ll most definitely want to shop following the class. 🛍

So, grab a girlfriend and join me for Cork & Click, photography education course led by Anne Xenos, owner and photographer behind Anne with a Cam (Facebook.com/AnneWithACam).
