“Meghan is so easy-going and positive which makes it easy to learn. I have always loved taking photographs, but have never been very good at taking people photos.  But  this class changed that!   I love looking back at old family pictures, especially of me as a child,and now I can use what I’ve learned from this class to make some wonderful photograph memories for our daughter.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean an online class? How is this class formatted? Is it live at the same time every week? What if I miss one?

As for the format of the class, it’s all online and the lessons for each week are posted in the members area once a week, for 4 weeks. However, these lessons are pre-recorded videos that you can watch at your convenience, and have lifetime access to. (i.e. they are available the entire time you are in the course AND after the course ends. Just keep your log-in information and you can go back at any time to watch them again.)

In addition to the lessons in video format, there are assignments for you to complete and send to me for feedback (but again you can do this at your own pace). The only thing that ther are deadlines for is for turning in your homework assignments, They will be due each Saturday and you’ll receive feedback by Monday.

Finally, we have a private facebook group for just the members of our class. You’ll post your assignments here and get mentoring, networking and support from me and from other photographers in this group. I will check into our private facebook group everyday to provide support and feedback.

 

What kind of technical photography skills will we cover in the class?

 

We’ll cover finding “good” light, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and how these all work together to create the correct exposure and right “look” to your photographs.

 

I have SOME understanding of photography but feel like I’m missing lots of important points. Will this course work for me too?

 

Yes. I know that I first learned photography in bits and pieces and there were LOTS of gaps in what I knew. I found that the best thing was to go back to the utter basics and learn those solidly again. That’s what this course gives you and then gives you chances to go further with your photography.

 

I really have no idea what I’m doing. Will this be too advanced for me?

 

No! I’m drilling down to the basics so that you’ll finally understand how all these parts work together (and what all the buttons on your fancy camera are for)! You’ll have the opportunity to get your questions answered and grow as a photographer in a group of other moms with cameras

“I find working with Meghan such a treat! She is brimming with wonderful ideas on capturing the magical moments. I am inspired by her keen eye and talent. I also appreciate that she is more than willing to share her vast knowledge and experiences with others . Meghan’s sparkling personality makes learning fun!”
