To teach or not to teach

May 07, 2012  •  1 Comment

 

Today two members of the Wellness at Work team approached me and asked I would be interested in leading a Lunch and Learn session on photography and they admire the work I have done as a volunteer photographer at two of their events.  I immediately said I would love to do it but in the hours since I am wondering what I have gotten myself into as I was so taken by surprise.  The session would be a few weeks away so I would have time to prepare for it but now the decision needs to be made – what to teach, can I teach,  how much do I prepare, how many people will attend?  Will I be so nervous that all I will do is stammer by way through the session?    How much can I cram into an hour?  Do I concentrate on basics for all photographers?  Do I concentrate on DSLR uses? Point and shoot users? Composition? Lighting? –no not lighting since I’m still learning that one.  Oh my, what am I going to do?  When I told my daughter-in-law I had been approached her response was “That’s awesome”  and then went on to tell me not worry, that I would be fine as my passion for photography will shine through and the session will be fantastic because of it.  I hope she is right, now I must go and start doing some research and preparation for my first session whenever it will be.

Just show them your photos my friend, and explain why you took the photo. They will learn.
