Let's take amazing natural light portraits no matter how crazy the weather gets! - If it's cloudy, you will learn how to pose your model to avoid awkward shadows, get the most of your background and bring a friendly-happy vibe to the photo even if it's a little dark. - If it's a sunny day, you will learn how to avoid awkward shadows, get the most of your background and contrast sun light with your subject to create a more dramatic look in your photos. This will be an opportunity to get headshots of each other!

ABOUT MINNEAPOLIS
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Minneapolis.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Minneapolis Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

A bit cold to be out shooting for two hours...but tolerable as I dressed for the weather. It was a nice group of people & Kenisha did a good job getting us started. She helped by directing the group to three different locations to shoot. I great way to get out of your comfort zone in a supportive setting. I would recommend!

Kanisha was great. Enthusiastic and helpful. A good mix of people attended. My issues were . . . A 2 hour shooting session on a cold (12?F) winter morning left my fingers so numb it was hard to operate the camera. An early Sunday morning (10am) meant there were hardly any people or any activities taking place for 'street photography'. The location was in the middle of the financial and business district so no shops or businesses were open and it was hard to find anything to shoot. Despite all that I enjoyed myself and would do it again when it was a bit warmer and in a better place. Lawrence
