black friday…through cyber monday

Know someone who has a fancy camera but doesn’t know how to use it? Or is that you? Well, I’m sure you know how to point it and shoot it but…beyond that. Well, then think gift certificates, think Christmas presents, think about finally knowing how to use your camera on manual mode to take better pictures! Yippee!! Better price and better location (at home in your jammies).  :) All the details coming soon on discounted price and more but for now you can start thinking about it and check out the details here.

my newest project

I’m so excited to share something new with you! I’ve been enjoying my summer with my family, yes. But I’ve also been working hard on a new project and the first part of it is ready.

I’ve created an online workshop to teach you how to use your camera. In this first workshop, “Your Camera on Manual”, I walk you through the most important parts of how to shoot on manual and help you set all those tricky and confusing different buttons on your fancy camera. This workshop includes video lessons, written lessons, lots of picture examples, downloadable reference guides, and photo challenges with personal critique and kind but honest feedback from me.

The best part… you can take the workshop when your makeup is done and your outfit is all Pinterest-acceptably shnazzy or….you can go through the workshop in your jammies at midnight! Yes. That works well for those of us who are busy mamas, right?  :)  I thought so.

If you’re interested in checking it out you can find out more about it here.

Update: The workshop “Your Camera On Manual” is underway and registration is closed. It will be offered again in 2013 with early announcements sent out to my newsletter subscribers.

workshop models

I had a photography workshop teaching people how to use their cameras this past Saturday and these were some of our cute little models…

and these last ones of little Luke make me smile…

happy black friday!

I’m not out shopping but I will fit in a little online Christmas shopping today. Are you Christmas shopping today? I thought I’d mention a couple of gift ideas in case you are buying a gift for someone who loves photography.

**Gift certificates are available in any amount you desire just email me at cori@derksenphotography.com to find out more details or to purchase a gift certificate.

**I am also offering two photography workshops this winter to teach people how to use their cameras on manual. You can fill out the registration form and reserve a spot for your loved one (or yourself) here. The workshops are limited to only 6 people per date to keep it small and intimate. The spots are first come first serve. The dates are Saturday, January 28, 2012 and Saturday, February 25, 2012. I will be blogging more about these workshops soon, but you can read the details about our 2011 workshops here.
