Getting Out of Auto Mode
If you are like most people who invested in a fancy DSLR or mirrorless camera you’re shooting in auto mode most of the time. Because your camera is a mystery to you and you don’t want to risk missing moments that matter.
And I understand, getting out of auto mode is frustrating, confusing, and overwhelming, not to mention the time you’re wasting away scouring the internet for answers you never really manage to find.
You might even feel the urge to give up and throw your camera in the rubbish bin.
Easy, Playful, and Jargon-Free!
I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way! Don’t give up on your photography dream. The online photography courses and mentoring sessions at Photography Playground will help you to master your camera and gain creative confidence.
As a result, you’re in love with your photos and want to treasure them forever. You’re so proud of them you can’t wait to share them with the world.
And on top of that, learning how to create the photos you dream of at Photography Playground is easy, playful, and jargon-free.
PHOTOGRAPHERS WITHOUT BORDERS
Hi, I’m Karin!
Your Photography Mentor
In a world that’s very focused on quick snaps, tricks & gimmicks, and the chase for likes, I am a voice of intentional, meaningful, and slow photography.
Making meaningful photos has nothing to do with your camera. It has everything to do with YOU – the human behind the camera.
That’s why I’m an advocate for slow photography. I wanna help you to make beautiful and meaningful photos by opening the door to your inner, slow photographer.
Here’s what I want for you – don’t just settle for better. I want you to fall in love with your photos. I want you to find joy in the process of making them. I want you to be present in the world when you have a camera in your hands. Because you and your photos deserve to be seen by everybody.
I’m so happy you’re here – let’s begin!
