Well another round of Bootcamp has just ended and to say how proud and happy I am for everyone, is such an understatement!
Our exclusive Facebook group has been going OFF with sharing beautiful photos and AHA! moments and has been such a great place of growth not just for my Bootcampers learning from each other, but also for me, getting an even deeper understanding of what people want to learn and how I can tweak Bootcamp to continue to get better and better and better!
Today I wanted to share the photography skills learned through a few images that my students have been taking – some of these are from the first round of Bootcamp, a couple are past attendees from my last workshop and some are complete beginners who submitted these images after only one or two weeks into the Bootcamp! Most of my Bootcampers and workshop attendees had never used their camera on manual before so it is so wonderful to see their progress!
If you haven’t heard about it, my 21 Day Beginner Bootcamp is all about photographing kids. We go through what comprises a great child portrait, how to find the magical sparkly light, the back of the camera and the only four functions you really need to understand, how to capture movement in fast moving kids and basically how to bring it all together to start photographing your kids like a pro! The feedback and the results I have been seeing have completely blown my mind and I feel like a proud mumma bear that they are achieving so much in such a short period of time :)
but don’t just take it from me…
I got this little message on Facebook yesterday so I wanted to share with you guys as well :)
Clare, I just wanted to share how much I have been enjoying Beginner Bootcamp thus far! I was a little skeptical of an online class and how much I would actually learn, I had a friend who did the first round in December and her reviews were raving – she couldn’t be more right! In the first week of Bootcamp I felt like my understanding of the camera and how it worked expanded ten-fold. Now I absolutely love Manual and love the control I have over my photos. I am trying to practice, practice, practice and feel great about my increased confidence with how to manipulate the settings for what I need. Thank you so much!! I look forward to the rest of class and much more practicing! Karyn (United States)
Here are some photos from my students
Note that we haven’t tackled editing so these are either self taught edits or straight out of camera! I love teaching mums how to use the light and their photography skills to take great pics in camera and not have to use editing to ‘save’ photos.
If you know these guys or just are impressed by their photography skills after such a short period of time, please do like and share! if you want to join Bootcamp, I am holding a special $70 off until 31st January 2019 only for friends and family of my Bootcampers (and you, of course!) – just type in BOOTCAMPROCKS when you join up here.
