Eyes up, heart open

Carla Ten Eyck

Back to Basics


Not booking uber high end weddings and photographing crazy models? No matter!  Beauty is everywhere, learn how to see it and how it will translate into making you a better photographer. Learn to truly understand exposure and the relationship between ISO, aperture, shutter speed and lens choice and how it affects your image!

Learn to see and understand what makes a great image in the first place, regardless of where and who you shoot. Get a firm understanding of how composition, lighting, moment, emotion and subject all play into what makes up a solid photograph. In addition to having a great eye, Carla knows that understanding and mastering the technical side of photography can be daunting. Carla will take the guess work out of how things like shutter speed, aperture, focal length and ISO can all affect your image in the end by breaking each part down and seeing clear examples of how each change looks in an image!

Who really photographs beautiful- comfortable- in-front-of-the-camera models? I know I don’t! (I mean I do… but not at weddings!) In addition to learning ways of making your subjects at ease while you photograph, Carla will show you ways to really and truly get it right in camera as much as possible to save you time in front of the computer!

Carla's workshops are the best. They are truly hands on and she knows intuitively how to lead you to real insights. I recommend attending to anyone who is serous about their craft. Ben Simmons

Make the most of your locations and lighting situations with creative solutions to common shooting problems. Can you say reflector? Hello!

Really understand your gear and what it can do for you- and more importantly- how to use it!

You will go out and shoot on-location in Hartford with Carla and subjects for the day- nothing like some good old fashioned hands on experience!

Class size is limited to FIVE participants only in order to really get that one on one time and hands on instruction with Carla.


The class ends with an interactive critique of your images on what worked, what didn’t and how to make it better the next time you are at a shoot!

Then enjoy a home cooked lunch and upload your images.
