This is a Hands-on Learning Experience.

So many of us need more hands-on practice with our cameras. Here's your chance to learn the settings, ask your questions, have me show you how to use the most important parts of your camera!

Learn professional techniques on how to achieve out of focus, soft bokeh backgrounds with in-focus flower petals. No matter what equipment you use, Katydid will show you how to create compositionally pleasing images with soft beautiful pleasing colors. We'll also be looking for complimentary colors to make your photos pop. Have you often wondered about buying a macro lens, close-up filters or a long lens for different looks?
