I love photography! I could probably eat and breathe it if it was possible! Know what else I love? Teaching! I am a teacher by profession. In fact, I taught Kindergarten before I had my own kids, and I am currently home schooling my 4 boys.
Homeschooling has given me less time to pursue my photography. In fact, I’ve been telling clients no about photo shoots, because I just don’t have time to edit. But I need something to give me a creative outlet and I’ve had numerous friends ask if I teach photography lessons...so a few weeks ago, I put two and two together, and I have been working on a plan to teach some photography basics to anyone who wants to improve their photography skills...and this plan is perfect for anyone who doesn't have mega time slots, like me! So, without further ado, I'd love to introduce you to The Snap Studio!
The Snap Studio is a year-long photography basics course for anyone interested in learning how to take better pictures with their phones or fancy cameras. Basic photography techniques, skills and challenges will be given in manageable-sized lessons emailed to you throughout 2019. Perfect for the person who doesn't have time or energy to cram a whole class into mere weeks. Learn how to make your images into more than just snapshots with this mildly-paced course with easy to follow lessons and videos aimed at helping learners of all ages (13+) and all abilities.
A quick overview:
I know I could go on and on explaining why I chose to do this class this way, or who it's for, what you'll learn, etc. but I find it very boring to read a long diatribe, so here are the quick basics of this class, with more detailed descriptions below if you're interested!
If this sounds interesting to you, read below for the more nitty gritty details about this class:
Are you in?
*There were not enough people who registered for this class to make it worth my while, so I am not going to be doing this class for now. Maybe next year or a different format. If you are interested, please contact me and I will let you know when I get this going! Thank you!
Summertime at my house means 4 kids running around, and we love every second of it. It also means I put aside my stuff to spend as much time as possible with them while they're home, which means less time to do things for me, like putting together our family films. Because we are doing online school this year (a whole post in and of itself...) I haven't had much more time to get my stuff done as I'm trying to get into the groove of having all four boys home all day long.
Finally, I was able to get our family films done for July and August. They aren't quite as technical as I'd hoped to get when editing, but it was either spend more time on them and get further behind on everything else, or just get them done. I chose the latter.
Here's a look into our July and August!
If you've followed my recent work, you know that I've been getting into making films! I want to keep practicing them so I can make them for all of my clients in the near future!
I have a new niece and wanted to document her with her family--it's always so wonderful to see the wonder in an older sibling's eyes, or the love on a parent's face. Such tender moments!
So, here's a look at my first newborn family film.
I love everything about spring...and more recently, I love making films, so for this month's serenity project, I thought it would be fun to make a serenity film. All spring, I captured clips as the weather warmed up and as the world awoke from its winter slumber. Even though summer is in full swing now, I just barely got this short film finished, so I hope you take a minute (well, 1 minutes plus 3 seconds) to enjoy it and find some serenity yourself!
The Serenity Project is a group of photographer friends who come together each month to share where we all found some serenity during the last month. Continue through the blog circle to see what my friends discovered! Next up is Eileen Critchley, San Antonio Photographer.
