I’m sitting in the back of the room here at our first-ever D.C. Photo Bootcamp for Beginners, and I’m thrilled at the pictures attendees have learned to take in just two days.
You can see some of them here…
Photos where objects in the foreground are in focus and those in the background are blurred…

Photos where the objects in the center or background are blurred and those in the foreground are softly out of focus…
Creative compositions and more…
This workshop was for beginners only. Attendees had no formal training with their cameras before they arrived. Some had never even turned their camera on but once or twice. Others had been shooting photos for years, but still felt frustrated by what they didn’t know their camera could do.
Using fun photo “Play Stations,” each with a specific learning goal, we taught attendees how to take creative control over their photos. We showed them how to stop and blur motion on command. How to focus on one object while blurring the background. And how to take indoor photos in low light without a flash and without blur.
