BEGINNER Tip of the week: Read your camera’s manual

The best way to know what to do with your camera is to actually read the manual. Even with great training each camera is so specific that not everything can be covered in a few classes. So many people miss this really important steps on their photographic journey. Every camera is different, so by reading the manual you’ll get to know all the funky things it’s capable of.


Why my training Classes are the best? 

1. Small Class size (No more than 10 people)

2. REAL professional Photographer & the Most experienced teacher/photographer in the area

3. I Have my own teaching/studio facility

4. Value/Price

Don't be fooled by part-time photographers in the area or hobbyist photographers who teach just to make a little extra money. Don't take classes where the student/teacher ratio is too high. Don't take classes from someone who teaches in a community facility! Don't take classes from a photographer who can't take commercial quality images. Also, don't forget about value. You will not find a better deal on training with an experienced teacher/photographer in all of southern Ohio, northern Kentucky and even Indiana and beyond.

I’ve been taking photos professionally for 5 years now for my job as a product photographer, but as it turned out, there was a ton that I didn’t know about (lighting techniques, camera settings, gear, etc.). It’s easy to get into a slump with your photography, always resorting to same old tried-and-true methods. This class definitely reenergized me to spice up my shots.
— Rob Detric
Michael is very passionate about photography. His knowledge of lighting and technique is obvious. He is very thorough when explaining and teaching a process.

Thanks again, look forward to signing up for another class or two in the future.
