After some examples, and instruction, we will head out to put our new infomation to the test and sharpen skilz. For this class, no special gear is needed. I will be taking my phone, and giving the dSLR a well earned rest.

Sewickley Photography Classes begin 11.12.11 ~

With lots of help from Selena and Bruce Erik Steffine we have come up with what we believe is a FIRST for the Pittsburgh area. Busy Bee boutique photography is offering digital photography classes begining Saturday 11.12.11. So here is the plan…

Each Saturday afternoon 2-3pm, and Tuesday evening 6:30-7:30,  you will find us hosting classes on a variety of topics from composition, to lighting – posing to post production.

Classes cost $15 for a single class, or you may buy a Class Pass for 8 classes ($99). Purchase your classes HERE.

We will meet at Busy Bee boutique photography, 516 Beaver Street, Sewickley, PA 15143. (Robin 412.901.5901), and weather permitting, we may traveling to local places of interest, depending on the topic of the day. robin@busybeephoto.com.


Topics for our FIRST CLASS, Saturday, 11.12.11 include an introduction to landscape composition, and because our weather looks cooperative, we will go out and about for some experience with the lighting conditions of full sun, open shade and broken shade. We will also talk about lens selection, and help with questions regarding equipment.

Topics for Tuesday, 11.15.11 include shutter speed and a taste of night photography (weather permitting).

Check back here for topics, as we fill out our calendar.

For all classes, you will need to bring your camera (of course), and have a BASIC understanding of how to use your memory card and move images from the card to a computer. If you do not know how to do this, we will have separate classes available to show you how. You do not need a DSLR, however, you will probably want one once we get started. Very good DSLRs are NOT terribly expensive and we will be happy to help you find a camera that will meet your needs and grow with you. The camera does not make a great photograph, the photographer does. We will even have ‘cell phone photography’ days, so don’t be intimidated.

In addition to the weekly classes, Full-Day workshops, which will cover requested topics in greater depth, are planned for early spring.

All our topics, times and pricing are subject to change. Classes are designed to teach a variety ot subjects to help you make better photographs. We will not be teaching you how to begin your own photography business.

Jack turned 1 ~ Pittsburgh baby photographer

Oh! How I love this little guy! Jack came for a visit last year when he was brand new, and I was so delighted to have him back for his cupcake-smashing-one-year-session.  He seemed to like my big bear, Tiny, but LOVED my little bee ornaments. He is just a doll. He can come visit ANY time!

I created a few differnt wall collections, too, that I though I would share with you. Wall collections are specially priced and range from $99-$175. They include the printed image collection that I design along with the actual image files so that you can print more, if you wish. I can order frames for you, or you may shop for your own. They can also be converted to float wraps, standout prints or canvases (additional fees apply).
