I taught a photography class here at my in-home studio this past Sunday. We had a group of 7 eager mamas who were ready to learn some basics about how to put those cameras to good use. Most of us take tons of photos of our kids and out of all of them, we notice that only a few are what we would call really good, quality images. This is was a great class for those busy moms out there who don't have time to take a complete course; and would probably forget half of it in a few months anyway. This concise, 2-hour course, touched on the basics of how a camera works and then gave a number of hints and tricks; everything from what one mode of your camera will optimize your photos to how to hold your little one's attention and get them to actually look right at the camera. At the end we brought in some models; those who had infants practice on our 9-month-old and those with older kiddos practice on our 3-year-olds, here are the results!
