Digital Photography Workshop Series - Help! My Photos Are Blurry!

Last Saturday we held the first photography workshop (in a series of seven) at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. The workshop covered the subject of blurry photographs and was appropriately titled “Help! My Photos Are Blurry!”. Jen McKen did an amazing job teaching. She covered pretty much all the reasons why photos are (or may seem to be) blurry. Jen went over proper camera holding techniques, which shutter speeds to use when, selective focus and a bunch of other incredibly useful techniques. You can find more info on Jen’s workshop on her blog.

Jen and I have been Facebook buddies for about a year but have never actually met in person. This workshop was a great opportunity for us to hang out, talk business and gossip. I also met Jen’s wonderful husband Greg and even introduced him to the wonderful world of Uncle Sam’s Subs in Oakland. There will be six more workshops in the series: I Bought a Digital SLR – What Do I Do Now?
