Mentoring - Benjamin DeHaven

Do you have photography questions you cannot find the answers to? Do you need a refresher on f-stops and the exposure triangle? Do you need help turning snapshots into art? A one on one mentoring session may be just want you need. I am ready to talk photography, cameras, and art. I have over 10 years experience with digital photography, my first digital camera took 3.5" floppy disks!

I accept students at all levels. Whether you shoot in automatic but want to progress to manual and to understand how and why to set up your camera or you need some pointers on editing photographs in Photoshop I can help. I can also meet with two to three people in the field and give hands on instruction on how to get the pictures you desire to capture.

The Coffee Shop - $25/hr  1-2 people (minimum 1 hour)

Let's sit down at a local Baltimore County coffee shop and talk photography. Let me answer your questions over a nice cup of coffee. We can work on camera settings, basic photo editing, art theory, or even do a portfolio review where I will go through your pictures and critique them. I have a laptop with Photoshop so we can actually work on images together. Or bring your camera and we can talk about using it. We can talk about everything including focus modes, metering modes, exposure compensation, and even optimal ISO settings. We can have a nice relaxing conversation on how to make your photography less frustrating and more fun!

In The Field - $40/hr 2-3 people (minimum 2 hour, 2 people minimum)

Let's talk about your dream pictures and figure out where you would like to go. We will work together to customize a perfect day trip for you. Get together with one or two friends and we will meet up on location and I will teach you not only how to get the pictures you want but to make sure you understand the why behind the picture. After we meet up in the field we can schedule additional sessions at a local coffee shop and together edit the pictures you took.
