CAPTURE is the first installment of this series and focuses on photography’s technical components, shooting in manual mode indoors and outdoors in order to create beautiful, meaningful photographs as well as discusses other valuable considerations in the storytelling of photography. I have a bachelor's degree in education and after spending six years teaching full-time in a premier school district, I understand the essential nature of guided instruction followed by hands-on graduated practice. Thus, each workshop is tailored to each group's specific questions and needs. Openings are available for the July 20th workshop and enrollment is happening now. Tuition is $375 for the 4 hours. Message us on Facebook or email us at allisoncorrin at gmail dot com for information on how to enroll.

Curious about CAPTURE | Natural Light Photography workshops?

Where you’ll be: In a simple, small setting, we will sit together for four hours, laugh together, practice together and share together while exploring the tool that photography is in embracing your beautiful life.

What you’ll hear: For me, falling in love with photography has not been a short or simple journey. There’s always more to learn, someone further ahead. And, yet, through the imperfection along the way, I’ve more deeply learned the unique gift that it is. Photography has taught me the fleeting nature of our everyday existence and the choice we have to make to see the magic. I’ve learned the precious nature of the “in-between” and the value of the stories told in our images. It is my hope through these workshops to help not only simplify the process of creating grand photographs but to shed light on the richness of your one beautiful life.

What you’ll need: A DSLR camera and an excitement to capture your life in a more intentional way. It will be helpful to have located the buttons and settings on your camera ahead of time as we will focus on how and when to use them.

What is the investment: $350 includes the 4 hour workshop, meal, booklet and unlimited membership in a private online forum for future discussion, feedback and instruction.

What you’ll learn: This class will be the most basic and introductory class in a band new series from Allison Corrin Photography. The majority of our time together will be spent on how to shoot in manual mode in various settings in order to create beautiful, meaningful photographs. We will also discuss other valuable considerations in the storytelling of photography including composition strategies and using light in various situations. Discussion will be driven by class questions and other insights from participants. midwestphotographyworkshops_0005

What you’ll do: With my degree in education and after being a classroom teacher for six years, I realize how imperative guided practice is. The class will not only yield time to ask questions and explore the settings on your own camera and in groups, but you’ll receive time to practice step-by-step as well as taking home a booklet of the information we cover. midwestphotographyworkshops_0006

What you’ll receive: Starting with a breakfast or lunch together, this day is about nourishing the body as well as the soul. All participants will also receive an original booklet I personally wrote and filled with inspiring photographs to share the basics of shooting in manual as well as personal tips as to my philosophy of photography and story-telling strategies. As all would agree, the majority of your learning and growth will take place as you continue to practice. Therefore, perhaps one of the most valuable assets of participating in an Allison Corrin Photography is the chance to join an exclusive online forum only open to Allison Corrin Photography workshop participants. This space will serve as a private group to continue the learning by sharing images, questions and growth as well as in order to receive feedback from other workshop participants. I will also continue to post tips, challenges and provide helpful feedback to the group going forward. midwestphotographyworkshops_0007

What you’ll feel: There won’t be a trite question; there won’t be a wrong answer. In a relaxed, simple setting, you’ll feel encouraged, excited and empowered to practice with your camera and leave enlightened to the beauty in your everyday. midwestphotographyworkshops_0008

Testimonials from previous CAPTURE participants include:

"Allison Corrin is the warmth you need in a good teacher, the skill that you need for a great photographer, and the wholeness that you need for a wonderful person. The realness of allowing herself to be an "open book" in her workshop really allows the students to get honest answers about Allison's beautiful photography. No secrets - no gimmicks... she supports whatever dream you have for you and your 'big girl camera.'"

"Allison goes through what photography means to her and asks what it means to us. I had some prior knowledge of the exposure triangle and how the components relate but the chance to shoot and get instant feedback was truly amazing. Allison also hit some other topics that I was either very confused about or hadn't even heard of yet!"

midwestphotographyworkshops_0009

"It was so much more than just a workshop, maybe experience or retreat is more appropriate! I loved every minute and really feel like I can navigate manual and feel so much more comfortable with my camera!"

"The atmosphere that Allison created was so conducive to learning together as a group. Her passion for photography and for teaching were ever present throughout. I now has the confidence to learn to shoot in manual and can't wait to practice everyday. This workshop has provided me with a great place to start my journey and I have no idea where it will take me. I am lucky to have been a part of this group and can't wait to learn from everyone as we all learn more and more."

"As a computer "nerd" I am not (and have never been) an artistic person - that side of my brain doesn't really work too well. But I believe with the introduction that Allison has given me that I may be able to awaken a budding photographer inside of this nerd after all.”

“Allison has a true ability to teach, and it’s clear how much she loves photography. She made me eager to learn more about my camera and capture everyday life.”

“Easy to follow structure, and I was comfortable asking questions! I got automatic feedback on my photos in class and loved her covering everyday photo opportunities and how to create those images with the right settings! I love the continuous learning through the manual and group forum!”

“This workshop helped me out so much! I am going to rock my photo-taking skills with every ray of sunshine and use each ounce of light to its highest potential!”

midwestphotographyworkshops_0012

“I had such a great afternoon at the Capture Workshop! Learning about photography can be so overwhelming, but Allison not only led the class in an easy to follow way, but gave us our own beautiful manual written by her! I think this class would be perfect for anyone who is too overwhelmed to use their DSLR on manual or anyone who just wants their photos to look even a smidgen as beautiful as Allison’s!” midwestphotographyworkshops_0013

“Allison loves photography and it shows in her work. She captures perfect little moments between family they get to relive that moment every time they see the picture. I feel so much more confident in how to use my camera after just one class with her. I already am starting to see more opportunities to photograph the simple everyday things with my sweet daughter.”

“The class was on trend and personable! Allison is outgoing and pays true attention to what people ask and say to her!”
