Testimony Tuesday: Great Photography Workshop

Testimony Tuesday: Great Photography Workshop

Practical skills and a friendly environment create a great photography workshop.

Whether you are a beginner or advanced photographer, Omnilargess photography classes have lots to offer.

I simplify all hard-to-understand technical terms to easy-to-use skills. Therefore, everyone can enjoy the workshop and take away some new skills. 


Experience the Great Photography Workshop

Gary Keay @keaybaer is an avid photographer. He took several photography workshops with us, and each time we all had tons of fun during and after the classes.


Here is Gary’s testimony after one of the great photography workshops he took a few years ago.

“Hi Ted, Thanks for the great workshop. I always come away with a large amount of knowledge, and I put it to good use.

Particularly with white balance. Looking forward to the next workshop. I would like to pass along some pics of my instructor and his hand signals(smile).”

–Gary Keay

The friendly culture of our classes makes it easy for everyone to crack a joke or two, and Gary used it to make a joke of my hand signals 🙂
Warning: this Gary’s portrait is old. He looks even more handsome after growing the beard! Check his Instagram and Facebook profile at @keaybaer to see it for yourself.

I want to thank Gary again for his feedback. Feedbacks help us creating more great photography workshop.
Every Tuesday, I post a testimony from our previous students. Stay tuned for more testimonies.

Digital Camera Bootcamp Testimonial

I haven’t had a chance to update our Testimonial Page recently and I promise to get to it very soon. But this testimonial covers more than just a “thank you” note. It actually shows how you can take your photography to the next level by choosing the right settings in your camera.

Maria Killam,  a Colour Expert and Design Blogger, registered for our Digital Camera Bootcamp and joined us for this 8 week program. At first she didn’t believe that she would learn so much in this bootcamp, but now that we are almost at the end of this workshop, she realized  how much she has learned and how easy it is for her to control the camera to create the image that she is after.  Here is what she wrote to me:

Maria Killam

“I have had my DSLR Camera for over 2 years and had no idea how to use it. As a colour expert, decorator and design blogger, it’s so important for me to have pretty images on my blog. I had tried many times to take photos that included a window but my automatic functions (auto settings in camera) would not allow it. That one day when I learned how to turn an image from dark and bleak to a light filled space was worth the entire price of the course. Your patience and sense of humour with a bunch of novices in the class was great! Thanks again for a great boot camp! I look forward to learning more from you! Thank you so much!”

Understanding camera’s settings and functions

Working with DSLRs can be as easy as setting the camera to AUTO mode and letting the camera make the decisions for you, right? No! A camera does not have a brain. It does not know what you want to create or what is your main subject. There are so many different conditions which can fool cameras.

You have already invested your money to have better image quality but you are not quite satisfied with the results. Why is that? There are so many controls in your camera. Reading the manual can not help us. We need to understand the fundamentals. We need to visualize and experiment with the functions. So join us for this popular workshop to learn more about your DSLR or mirror-less camera, the settings and how to apply the information you gain.

Digital Camera workshop is primarily intended for photographers using digital SLR cameras, but many Manual capable digital compact cameras are also suitable. Each participant is expected to bring a digital camera with a fully charged battery and memory card(s).

In this 4 hour session you will learn the Digital camera’s terminology, Menu, Functionality such as:

Shutter Speed,

Aperture Value,


White Balance,



Auto Focusing,

File format,

Camera Maintenance,

Lens Focal Length,

Hidden functions, and much more.

Digital Camera workshop is developed for beginners and we will cover all the important functions of your camera. Please bring your camera, fully charged battery, and Memory card. We are going to try and test almost all the different settings and scenarios that the average person would encounter when taking photos.

After taking this photography class you won’t use the AUTO mode any more and you will see significant improvement in your daily photography.

Abbotsford Outdoor

Photography Workshop

On October 2nd, I had my Outdoor Fall Color Photography workshop. Here is a short story of what happened! The weather was nice and crisp. It didn’t rain, and we had a little bit of sunshine now and then! After one hour of technical discussion we started to walk around Fish trap creek Park and I share some tips on how to get the best possible images even in an overcast day. After lunch break we went to Gardener Park and I talked about more hidden possibilities in almost all DSLRs.
