When you become a mom, you discover that the paparazzi have nothing on the mamarazzi. Thanks to digital photography and smart phones and social media, there are more ways than ever to document your children’s formative years. But what if you need a little help with your photographic skills? Never fear, we have the scoop on what to do in Toronto the Rock That KidShot! To find out more, we’re turning to one of our Top Toronto Portrait Photographers, Diana Nazareth.
What to do in Toronto to Hone Your Photographic Skills
In addition to being a professional photographer, Diana is also a Toronto mom. She’s been there and done that, and it inspired her to create the Rock That KidShot! workshop specifically for moms and dads. Owning a fabulous digital camera, but to get the most out of it you need a good grasp on how to use it to capture the best shots of your little ones. That’s what her sessions are about. Students will learn digital camera basics, as well as how to unleash their creative sides. You’ll get 10 shooting tips that Diana uses in her own sessions. The result? When you’re finished, you’ll be inspired and ready to rock your own kid shots.
If you’re considering adding Rock That KidShot! to your list of what to do in Toronto this month, you should know that the next session happens on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 6:00-8:30pm. It will happen at Embella Party, 647 The Queensway East in Toronto. If you missed that one, there’s another happening June 20, 2013 from 6:00-8:30pm at Kid Culture Boutique, 3124 Dundas West, in the Junction. During the two-and-a-half hour long session you’ll take the leap and switch your camera from automatic to manual mode. You’ll learn how to set ISO, shutter speed, aperture and focus modes. It’s all about what goes on behind the camera, so photo-editing and running a photography business will not be covered. As an added bonus, you’ll get a Rock That Kid Shot! handout, and an invitation to join a private Facebook page where you can share images of your kids, receive feedback from Diana, and continue to learn.
