Many moms pick up photography as a hobby once they have their first child and find themselves taking a ton of images. Some moms get frustrated at not being able to take clear images of their little ones and want to learn how to simply take better images. Offering a basic photography class to these moms can give your photography business a huge boost, especially during your slower months. Here are a few tips and things you'll want to cover.
1) What equipment they should have. Teach new mom photographers what equipment they should invest in. Discuss the type of camera, lens, tripod, lighting and other extras like light reflectors that will help them make the best decision of what to purchase.
2) How to use the equipment. Next, make sure they know how to use the equipment properly. Most beginners fall into sticking with auto settings on their cameras simply because they don't understand how to use the other features. Teach them the difference between shooting in aperture, shutter, and manual settings so they can start using manual mode and take better images.
3) Add a special touch. Depending on your class’s price point, consider adding extras such as swag bags, a catered lunch, a few delicious chocolates or door prizes. This is a great way to make your class special and a a great opportunity to get local vendors to sponsor the class and offer extra value to attendees.
