About this talk

Are your pictures just not turning out like you want? Is "Auto" not working for you as expected? The automatic modes can be great, but they will only take you so far. It's time to explore, be creative, shoot special effects, and override the settings that your camera is automatically choosing for you! Lets literally take a look inside the camera to find out how it works so we can learn how to "unlock" our cameras and start shooting like a pro!


Listening to a talk on photography is one thing. Putting it into practice is quite another! That's why I like to encourage folks to start shooting regular assignments. It helps them put things into practice. And at whatever experience level they may happen to be at too. It helps them figure out just exactly what area they need to work on most.

So, shooting photo assignments is how we learn at Lenspiration. Here's how it works (click to view larger):

In this way, we get practical, hands-on training in photography! One month at a time.

James Staddon

James Staddon is a former homeschool student, now professional photographer and full-time photography educator from Salem, West Virginia. With a background in graphic design, his keen interest and endless preoccupation with photography eventually led him to start up Lenspiration in 2009 to provide budding photographers with a family-friendly environment to learn photography through real-life photo assignments, online training, and hands-on photography workshops. James is a huge fan of outdoor recreation, enjoys dabbling in business entrepreneurship, and is usually on the go with his camera somewhere in the US or abroad. His love for adventure has given him opportunity to develop skills in a wide range of photography genres, from wedding and event photography, to product and landscape photography. Through his ministry, business and workshops, he loves to see inspiration planted, nurtured, and expressed for the glory of God in the work of other photographers. James has been speaking, vending, and organizing Photography Teams regularly at homeschool events since 2014.
