The best thing about the workshop was Jennifer—her enthusiasm and energy. She didn’t just tell us to come get her if we had questions but actually walked around to each of us to volunteer pointers and feedback. Jan Stahl, past Jennifer Spelman workshop participant

Today’s digital SLR cameras offer endless creative opportunities—but only if you know how to use them. Whether you recently acquired your first digital camera or have owned one for a few years, this workshop empowers you to take control of its features and advance your skills.

Designed like a hands-on user manual, this workshop provides you with the knowledge essential to explore all the capabilities of the digital SLR. Jennifer patiently guides participants through the variables of aperture, shutter speed, and the various settings and shooting modes. We learn how to incorporate these tools with different lenses, and explore techniques of composition and lighting in order to create more interesting and powerful images. Mornings are devoted to lectures, discussions, and critiques of the previous day’s work, while afternoons are spent practicing newly acquired skills in the picturesque environs of Santa Fe.

This promises to be an exciting four days of mastering the basics of digital photography and cultivating our creativity in an energetic and supportive atmosphere. By the workshop’s end, participants have acquired a solid understanding of manual mode on their camera, and return home with a collection of images that reflect their new expertise.
