Event Details

Are you the proud owner of an awesome digital SLR camera (one with interchangeable lenses)  but know that you are not getting the most from it?

Do you love to take photos but just get frustrated because you know your camera could do a much better job if only you knew how to work it properly?

Are you intimidated by the complicated camera menus and have no clue what all those buttons do?

Would you like someone who knows what they are talking about just to SHOW you on your camera how to use it?

Then this class is for you!

In this 3 hour workshop you will learn all of the basics of using your Digital SLR camera in a fun, hands-on setting, taught by Ingrid Owens, a teacher who knows exactly where you are coming from.

By the end of the morning you will know how to:

  • Navigate your camera's menu and what all those buttons do.
  • Use your lenses, when to use them and why.
  • Obtain correct focus and how to change it for different scenarios.
  • Control Flash, when to use it and when not to.
  • Use your camera confidently to get the shot you want.


You will leave this class being confident and comfortable using your camera and a new enthuasiasm for the great shots that you will now be able to take!


For more information on Ingrid check out her bio here and sample some of her tutorials here.

Class size is limited so register to reserve your spot today.



Don't let your camera get in the way of taking great pictures - Learn how to use it!



I am a complete beginner, is this class for me?

Yes!  This is a basic beginners class - I will asume you just got the camera yesterday and I promise to keep my language jargon-free.


I don't own a DSLR camera yet, can I participate?

I'm afraid not.  Attendees must have their own Digital SLR camera to attend this class. This is a very hands-on workshop with lots of practice so you need to have a camera to participate.


Will you be covering how to shoot in Manual Mode?

Not in this workshop.  This is a very basic beginners class.  If you are already familiar with shooting out of Auto mode then this is not the class for you.  We will be covering that however in upcoming workshops so stay in touch!


Where can I contact Ingrid with any questions?

Email ingrid [@] camerashy [dot] info or call 404 247 8079 


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you cannot make it to this workshop, email me ingrid [@] camerashy[dot]info and your ticket will be good for another workshop or we'll transfer it to your friend's name.


The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

That's fine.  Just let us know when you register at the door.


Here's what some past attendees had to say about this workshop:

"The class was perfect for the beginner, just as described."

"Ingrid was fantastic! I hope to receive info when the next level course become available."

"The class was great, short and sweet! The instructor was funny and keep the class interested."

Ingrid Owens, CameraShy Photography Classes

Ingrid Owens Photography TutorI’m Ingrid and I’m on a mission to help you (and anyone else who will listen) how to figure out how to use your camera and start taking the types of photos that will knock your socks off!

I’ve been involved in the photo industry since my dad opened our camera shop back home in Monaghan, Ireland in 1989.  At the young age of 16 I was catapulted into this fascinating world of lenses, darkrooms, shutter speeds and f-stops, and I loved it. 

In my business CameraShy I teach photography in-person here in Atlanta and online .You can also check out my blog over at Beginners Photography Blog where your can sign up for a free online course or join my weekly photo challenge where you can get advice and critique from a friendly bunch of like minded photographers (and me!)

Let me know if you have any questions - I'd love to work with you :)
