If You Were Attending a Photography Talk…

What would you expect the person speaking to discuss?

The reason I ask is because I will be doing the speaking at my local MOPS group next Thursday night, and I’m having a hard time narrowing down a specific topic to discuss.

In December, I gave a short photography “teaser.” I offered the moms at our meeting 7 tips for taking better photographs. It was short, to the point, and was a ton of fun. There were even handouts!

But now, I’ve got to come up with enough discussion to cover at least 45 minutes. I could talk about photography for hours on end, but I need to hone in on a specific topic.

So, I’m coming to my wonderful readers. You always have the best ideas, and I KNOW you can help me out.

I will not be standing in a room of professional photographers. I’ll be talking to moms who want to get better pictures of their kids. Most of them will be using point and shoot cameras. I want to be able to help them get the most from their cameras and take the best pictures possible.

So, if you were going to a photography talk, what would you hope the photographer would share? What questions would you ask the photographer?

Do you think it would make sense to bring along my 6 kids and use them as props? I can show different poses, and such. Would that benefit you if you were at the meeting?

Help me out, friends. I’ve got one week to come up with something awesome. 🙂

    Lighting is my number one issue with my point & shoot! I am TERRIBLE at getting good lighting in either really low light (night) or bright light (day/outside). Just things to consider when posing or taking pictures outside would be helpful as people are likely going to be spending more time outside soon!

    P.S. if you want to post your tips here for us readers that’d be great too 🙂
