Photography Class – Show What You Know

Last Sunday we had a great group of students.

The classes are on Sundays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, but most of the days we extend a little longer so we have the chance of going outside and shooting for a while so the students can show what they’ve learned.

We start with the basics and make sure that everyone is following the program. This is not an easy task, since their level of knowledge in photography vary from point and shoot experience to people who wants to start shooting at parties or their kids playing sports.


At the end, we stepped outside for a demonstration of shooting with natural light.

If you live in South Florida and would like to come to one of my classes, I have a supper promotion running on my Meetup Group.

Here are two images I shot while explaining the camera settings to the students…

Photography Class – DSLR – Manual Setting

DSLR Camera Settings

How cool is to have a digital camera and take some awesome pictures of your kids, their birthdays and games, family vacations, small parties and etc?

Unfortunately, most of people only know how to use their digital cameras with the original settings the camera came from the store (automatic).

photography class

This is a 3 hours indoor instructional/hands-on class created to help amateurs, enthusiasts and semi-professionals understanding better their DSLR camera settings and how to work with manual setting instead of automatic setting.


In a fun and easy style, Paulo Jordao will cover how to use your camera effectively, and give great tips on photographing children (portrait and sports), pets and small parties.

The price of this class is $145, but you can find it in one of my Meetup Groups for only $35Meet-2-Shoot


Underwater Photo Shoot – Underwater Photography

I’ve been researching hours and hours about underwater photography, so I can photograph a underwater fashion photo shoot.

I’ve checked what gear to get, techniques, accessories, etc…

Once I had everything organized, I decided to do a testing photo shoot with one of my son’s friend. She had to use a mask because of the strong chlorine  in the water.

That was not a deal breaker for me, since it was just a test to be sure that my gear was ready for the real photo shoot.

To say the truth, the session was a lot harder than I imagined;

- I was wearing a body suit with a 10 lb  weight belt and it felt that was not enough to keep me effortless on the bottom of the pool.

- The pool looked clean at first, but while I was preparing my gear, my son and his friend were playing in the pool. When I was ready to start shooting, I noticed that all that commotion of the kids playing, brought up all the dirt from the bottom of the pool.

- I’ve never used my camera in “Live View” and it was really hard to focus in that foggy water specially if you need reading glasses.


These were just few of the obstacles I’ve encountered for this session.

In couple weeks I will be doing a full Fashion Photo Shoot, but I will be using another pool (salt water).

Here is one the images from my test session…
