CELEB BUZZ | Laura Winslow, Jamie Schultz, Kelli France & Stacey Woods
Our Celebrity Photographers have been BUSY!
Jamie Schulz, Laura Winslow, and our Editor in Chief, Kelli France are taking part in an AMAZING workshop!
Do you wish that you could get your fancy new DSLR off of the green square and shoot creatively? Would you like to know more about metering or shooting in manual mode? Are there settings on your camera that you just do not understand? Do the technical aspects of photography — and all that terminology — make your eyes glaze over a little bit? Wouldn’t it be perfect if someone could just explain it all to you in layman’s terms?
Well, we totally agree with you. In fact, we wish that someone would have offered us something like this when we were first learning how to use our cameras! And so, we here at The Creative Mama are excited to present… our first e-course!
Introduction to Photography: Chapter One is an online course that will last for three weeks, will teach you how to get off the green square and shoot completely in manual mode, and will boost your confidence in capturing photos of your own everyday. Besides the written course content, you will also be able to watch several videos that show you how to use your camera. You’ll also get lots of short, fun assignments that give you a chance to test out these settings for yourself. You’ll see videos of Stacey shooting and editing from beginning to end, and Stacey and Bree answering your questions via video every week. You’ll have daily prompts delivered right to your inbox, access to a private website just for the class members, and the whole beautiful thing wrapped together in an e-book at the end of the course, so that you can continue to study the content over and over at your own pace. Best of all, the concepts and principles of photography are explained in easy-to-understand analogies and examples, so that the terminology doesn’t ever overwhelm you.
It’s certainly technical… but it’s creative (of course!).
It’s written instruction… but it’s so very hands-on.
It’s a full explanation of how your settings work with each other… yet it’s all broken down into simple language.
Now that we’ve told you what this e-course IS, let’s chat a little about what it is NOT…
This is not a business course. We won’t talk about pricing, marketing, sales or profits. We won’t teach you how to launch your own photography business, whether it be a brick and mortar studio or simply out of your own home. If you are already a professional photographer, then this certainly is not the class for you. If you’re already quite comfortable shooting in manual mode, then you’re likely too advanced for this beginner’s e-course.
However, if you’re frustrated with shooting in automatic mode, and you really want to be able to use your camera to create the photos of your children that you imagine when you close your eyes… why then, you’ve just hit the jackpot.
This Creative E-Course was made for you.
