So happy to announce the next group class for January 2013!
Details and registration at the bottom of this post 🙂
The “Everyday Joy” class is designed especially for Moms who have a fancy camera and have no idea how to use it 🙂 It’s for you if you love taking pictures and would like some tips on how to better document the joy that is your family. To be able to better capture all those little moments that make up the beauty of your family. The Everyday Joys. The kids outside playing in the snow. Family pizza night. His grin with his missing teeth. Her twirling in her tutu. All the little moments you’ll want to remember forever!
In the first half of the class we will cover the basic settings of your camera (all those confusing terms- aperture, ISO, shutter speed) and how to use them all together. We’ll talk about light and how to capture it beautifully. What time of day is best for pictures, how to capture sun-flare, where in your home you should try to shoot from… etc. We’ll cover composition, lenses and a few other technical topics.
The second part of the class will cover how to better capture your own family. Tips on how to get real, authentic pictures of your little loves. Ideas on how to engage your kids (at any age). With four kids myself I know the challenges of getting a decent shot with all of them together, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that will really help get those “money” shots.
And most importantly we will go over a few ideas to help change the way you document your family. This is where you will grow from taking just a snapshot, to really capturing the moment.
You DO NOT need to have a fancy DSLR camera to attend (although it will be helpful for the camera settings part of the course) 😉
*Also please note- you DO NOT need to be a mom to attend this class. The creative side is geared towards parents, however there are a ton of tips and tricks that will work with any subject matter 😉
The class will be 3 hours long. With some yummy snacks and drinks (of course!)
There will also be time to answer questions and you will also receive reference material to take home 🙂
The next group class is being held on Monday January 28, 2013 from 6:30 -9:30pm in Midnapore.
Cost- $100 (+gst)

Here’s what a few people have said about the class:
Thanks so much! Super informative. Loved that you had examples of pictures to explain what you were talking about. I enjoyed it all.
I loved the tricks, personal opinion (since you are in a similar position to me – busy mom, wanting to tell your story etc) I value what you have already researched & tried & found to be ideal. I would much rather take a class in this comfortable setting (girls’ night out), to be able to ask my questions without condescension & to have the instructor be on the same page re: what I really want to accomplish thru my picture taking & helping me to get there in the simplest way…I felt so at home & enjoyed myself in the process. Now it get out and put it all to practice!
I loved both the technical and creative sides of this class! I’m going to try out a lot of the creative ideas we talked about!
