Workshop FAQ

Who should come to Photography Rising?

ANYONE that is interested in learning how to take better pictures with their DSLR cameras.


What should I bring?

Bring your DSLR camera, pen and paper, and your camera manual (if you can find yours).


Does my camera HAVE TO be a DSLR camera? What if I have really nice phone or a good point and shoot camera?

A lot of our discussions are going to be centered around DSLR cameras, so if you do not have a DSLR, you might feel left out.


What’s a DSLR camera?

DSLR cameras are cameras with detachable lenses. They give the person full manual control on how to take the photo.


Why should I take a workshop with Emily Davidson?

I’ve been taking professional photos for over 4 years, and I’ve learned quite a bit along the way. I’m also a full-time teacher, so workshops are combining my two biggest passions, teaching and photography! My aim is to make this workshop worth your while because I know education is a big investment.


Why should I come to workshop when I can learn everything from google?

You can totally learn a ton from blogs, youtube, and other resources. I know I learned a ton from the internet my first couple years as a photographer. I also know that I wouldn’t be the photographer I am today with people in my life SHOWING me HANDS ON techniques. I had mentors pour into me encouraging words and little knowledge nuggets. I found so much more value in what I was learning from someone in front of me instead of a computer screen.


What if there a lot of people that sign up for this workshop? Will we have like one gigantic group?

Not at all! Depending on the amount of responses I receive will determine who gets to come on November 4th. If I have 5 people sign up, great! Can’t wait to meet you guys! If I have 12 people sign up? Woohoo! If I have 50? Woah…. wasn’t expecting that. I’ll start grouping people according to knowledge, photography goals, and/or age group. 


Can high school students go?

You bet! If I get enough interest from high school students to attend a photography rising workshop, I will make a workshop just for you!


I’m a mom of 4 adorable kids, and I want to learn more about photography. I don’t do these types of things. Should I go?

Only if you bring pictures of your adorable family. Like seriously, join us!
