What can you learn for free?

Wondering what you can learn at the free photography workshops in Ontario, CA? Well here is a small sample of topics that are discussed in Ruben’s Photography Workshop. The topics change at every workshop, it all depends what the students of photography want to learn that day.

Ruben encourages you to ask questions about topics or photo equipment. He also encourages the students to bring in their photos so that we can all take a look at their work and most importantly see their improvement. He will give you constructive criticism on ways that you can improve your image for future shoots.

We hope to see you at one of these free workshops. For dates, times and location click here.

New channel going up! The Creative Corner will be a YouTube channel about my life as a creative. This space will allow me to share with you the kind of work and hobbies I enjoy. The channel will feature topics on graphic design, photography, video, drawings, books, equipment, tips and reviews. I want to be able to help others in the same creative industry as well as learn form others.

This is all new to me and I am not used to being in front of a camera, so I will be a little rusty and bad at first so I apologize in advance hahahaha.

By creating this video content, it will give me that much needed practice and experience that I want for future video editing jobs.

Please check out the 1st intro vlog here

Artists know your worth…

fullsizerender_1

During last night’s photography class, my teacher said something that truly impacted me in a positive way. A student asked about how much he should be charging people for events. I find myself in the same situation, so this question was perfect.

The teacher said that we should not under charge even if we are still students. The reason is you don’t want to devalue your work. At the same time, we should not be over charge because we are still in the learning phase. The teachers said people don’t realize how much work goes into photography or any creative field.

When it comes to photography, customers don’t understand that the price you are quoting them is not only for the time spent taking photos, it also includes the hours spent doing the photo editing. Photo editing is a must, no image no matter how good your equipment maybe is ready out of camera, you need to edit it. Editing makes a huge difference colors are more vibrant, blemishes on the face are covered and the image is sharpened. Every step done in editing is with the sole purpose of presenting the best image possible to your customer.

The same applies for quotes I give for graphic design projects, it takes work and it takes time. I work full time as a designer for a company, but I am also a freelance designer, so I am working on projects on my free time, and time to everyone is valuable! My rates on design projects are on the low side compared to other designers, but I can see firsthand why they charge what they charge. They deserve it! You as an artist are providing them with a creative service.

So if you are a creative of some kind remember do not hesitate to charge what you in your heart feels like a fair rate for the work you can provide.

If you are interested in attending the free photography workshop you can check out the events page for dates, times and locations.

Keep creating,

-Alondra
