Getting Out of Auto Mode

If you are like most people who invested in a fancy DSLR or mirrorless camera you’re shooting in automatic 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 even overwhelming from time to time. You might even feel the urge to give up and throw your camera in the rubbish bin.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

Easy, Playful, and Jargon-Free!

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.

Hi, I’m Karin!

Your Photography Mentor

In a world that’s very focused on quick snaps, tricks, and gimmicks and the chase for likes, I am a voice of intentional, mindful, and slow photography.

Because I truly believe it’s not about the camera but about the person behind the camera.

That’s why I’m an advocate for slow photography and I wanna help you to make beautiful and meaningful photos by opening the door to your inner, slow photographer.

I’m so happy you’re here.

“I am very grateful to have found Karin. Karin has many years of experience in the field of photography and she generously shared her knowledge and skills. Thank you Karin for your presence, generosity, and patience. I am excited to see where this photographic journey takes me!”

Melissa Rawlinson

“Your approach to photography inspires me and is wonderful to read. In contrast to all those websites and books about technology and gear, your approach opens a completely different door for me. Instead of reasoning, it triggers my imagination.”

Roeland van Beek

“Her unique approach produced almost immediate results. The ability to have focused instruction and feedback was fantastic and the improvement in my photography has been noted by family and friends alike. I would highly recommend Karin as a warm, talented, and effective instructor.”

Christine Philips

“I appreciate how you express your photography philosophy and your love of your craft, how you incorporate it into your daily life. Your approach is inspiring and appreciated. There are a few websites that I explore, and read articles from that I subscribe to. Yours I enjoy the most. Thank you for sharing your point of view, and your love of your craft.”
