Collect the Moments

I was recently lucky enough to participate in Capturing Childhoods Collect the Moments photography coarse. I won a voucher for the coarse so I was a little under prepared for it, but despite some difficult family events in the middle of the coarse, I really enjoyed it.
The weekly class format introduces different topics over 6 weeks and sets assignments for you to complete each week. The Kats' provide additional information and prompts every few days as well as feedback on my photos, which kept me motivated. The coarse Flicker and Facebook groups gave me the opportunity to get in touch with other coarse participants, which I found really fun and motivating. I lagged behind in the later assignments but was still able to complete the assignments in my own time.
While I use a simple point and shoot camera rather that a DSLR, I still found the coarse useful. It has encouraged me to pick up my camera more and think about what I want to capture before I start snapping away. It hasn't made my kids sit still for any longer so I can try and get the perfect shot, but I'm still trying!
Go to Capture the Moments if you would like to find out more and once again thanks Kat and Kat I loved it.
