Tulsa Kindred | Restore House

Kindred returned to Tulsa this winter for our last workshop, hosted at Restore House on Broken Arrow's charming Rose District on Main Street. Actually, make that WORKSHOPS, plural! We hosted two back to back workshops, full of laughter and lots of learning, and helped 24 women learn how to use their DSLR cameras.  One attendee even brought her camera still in the box from Christmas!

Our goal at each and every workshop is to provide our attendees with basic manual mode user knowledge so that they have the tools they need to capture wonderful photos when they leave.  Our attendees come with the desire to capture better photos of their kids around the home or to gain the camera knowledge they are needing to assist them in their businesses. By giving our attendees the gift of knowing how to use their camera, we feel like we are providing them with the ability to tell their story.

Kindred Tulsa was no different. We enjoyed hearing why each attendee took the time to invest in Kindred! We're so happy to have helped 24 women learn how to use their DSLR cameras and tell their stories using photography!

We're always amazed at the progress our attendees make at Kindred. Whether starting with a camera still in the box or having only ever shot in Auto mode, everyone left with the ability to shoot in manual mode and having taken WONDERFUL photos.

One of the most important aspects of Kindred Photography Workshop is the hands-on practice and one-on-one time each attendee spends with a professional photographer. During the last segment of the workshop, attendees were grouped with our featured photographers and practiced their new knowledge.  Attendees were able to move around and snap pictures within vignettes of some of the cutest little subjects around.  This kind of practice is highly valuable because it gives each attendee a chance to practice making adjustments, play with the composition of their photographs- all within the reach of someone who can help.

Not only did we have an amazing space to learn in at Restore House, but lovely florals were provided by Bloomhouse OK.  The styling hand of Cortney McClure once again made Kindred a relaxing and beautiful place for mamas and beginners to learn how to use their cameras.
