Detroit

geek out

It's getting bad, my friends. The kids are so old and talkative now that Tyler and I can barely have a conversation while on a road trip without the kids interrupting because of their curiosity about whatever topic of discussion.

"WHO was at the beach mom?"

"Where were you when you did that?"

"Why do you feel that way, mom?

Hahaha. They are curious little people who love other people and stories and facts and all kinds of knowledge. 

However-- sometimes Tyler and I just want to talk to each other! So yesterday, on hour 29 of driving, we lent the little people our iPads. On the iPads, I installed a game called Monument Valley.  It's such an amazing little brain game- beautiful as well, with cool sound effects.  The kids LOVE this game but they say it is very hard. If you have kids that are allowed to play on tablets, check the game out. It is a problem solving game unlike others I've seen (but I haven't really seen that many).

The new-ish Workshop

By demand/suggestion/force, Tyler and I have revamped our Enlighten: shoot workshop. We currently have the enlighten: lite and goPro workshops  as well, and many of you asked if there was a way we could create a class that has a little of everything; camera talk, shooting, and post-processing. Something that wasn't geared toward going Pro- just for those of you who dabble and are hobbyists.

So: YES!  Announcing the re-introduction of the Enlighen: shoot workshop, which is a 6 hour workshop/best time of your life:

- 2 hours of workshop dedicated to understanding your camera and learning its bells and whistles (I bet you didn't even know your camera had bells, let alone whistles, see, you are learning already) as well as shooting in Manual Mode.

- 2 hours of a hands on, instructive shoot complete with models (you can use these pictures for your portfolio).

-2 hours of instruction on post processing- namely, what to do after the shoot is over to make the pictures look their best. (We will work in Lightroom.)

We are designing this workshop so you really can just show up with your camera and laptop ready for serious learning. Pressure free. (Do it now.) When you leave, you will have made new photo buddies, know how to effectively shoot in manual mode, know all the functions of your camera, get important pointers on how to shoot people, have answers to your burning questions, boost your creativity, and use that photo software you never open.

Sounds good, right? We think so too. The whole workshop is $475. (discounts apply to those who have already taken our Enlighten: lite class.)

Our first Enlighten: shoot  workshops will be in:

Sydney, Australia.  April 12th.  1pm- 7pm

London, England.   June 2nd.  3-9pm

And, if you'd like to request a shoot workshop to take place near you, suggest away.  We'd love to hear your thoughts. 

See you soon!
