About This Class

In this class I'll be talking in depth about Shutter Speed! I'll go over the mechanics behind how your camera takes a picture and how Shutter Speed affects your photographs.

We'll go over Long Exposure photography and I'll guide you through photographing lightning and stars!
Then we'll talk about high speed photography and I'll walk you through a setup for photographing water splashing in your kitchen at home.

This class is great for beginner photographers who want a better understanding of how their camera works as well as seasoned professionals who want to hone their long exposure and high speed photography skills.

The three of us, Oliver (age 10), George (age 11), Roze (age 42) really enjoyed your class. Technical subjects are tough to learn and you kept us motivated through out. We're going to try out the photo projects and we're looking forward to watching your other classes. Thank you and please keep making more.
A really fun and informative class. Lots of simple tips to get some interesting photos.

Really good at waiting in lines

Hi! I'm Tabitha and I teach photography classes. I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer for a living and I make that living in the gorgeous state of Utah! I love plants and I knit and I had my appendix removed in 2014 and sometimes I worry that I might need it later to talk to aliens. Other than that I'm pretty normal.
