We’re all taking photos. And my guess is we’d like our photos to look as good as we can. But sometimes improving our photos can feel incredibly overwhelming.
I try to provide a lot of content on here about photography, improving your photography, taking better every day photos with my Every Day Photos Guide, and what to do with the photos once you’ve taken them–the backend of photography.
I continue to get a lot of people asking if I teach a course on how to take better photos. Or how to use their dSLR camera better. Or their phone camera better. I used to teach an all day course but have found there are a lot of resources out there to improve photography. But there aren’t a lot of resources out there for the backend of photography (what to do with and how to manage the photos once we’ve taken them). So I still do some posts and content on improving photography, but I’ve really switched my focus to helping people with what to do with the photos after we take them.
But. I still HIGHLY encourage people to try to improve their photography. Telling stories through our photos is, in my opinion, one of the best things we can do for our family and for generations to come.
Because there are so many options out there for learning to improve, it can be overwhelming trying to decide where to look for information or what course would be a good fit. Some can be really confusing. Some are super expensive. Some just aren’t that good.
I’ve finally got one I feel I can recommend 100%. It’s called Snapshop by Ashley Ann from the Under the Sycamore blog. Ashley is an incredible photographer but she really focuses on telling stories with photographs and capturing the every day moments of our lives. The ones that make up the bulk of our existence and our stories.
Ashley has an online membership course. I know the course is good because I paid for the course and worked my way through the entire course. I’m already a photographer. I know how to shoot in manual. And I know the “rules” of photography, but I still learned a lot from the course. She has a unique way of looking at things through her lens. She also has an incredible talent for simplifying the explanations. And I love that her focus is on capturing the every day moments and stories of our lives.
If you want to take better photos of your kids, better every day photos, learn your dSLR camera better, take better photos with your phone, and/or learn new ways of telling your story, this class is for sure worth it.
The cost of the class, for what you get, is WAY under-priced (way way under-priced). Small one-time payment and then just $5 a month to keep access to the class and the new lessons that are added each month. For the content that is in there, she easily could charge hundreds of dollars and it would still be worth the price. Once you pay the registration fee, you get access to ALL the material in the course. And you can cancel at anytime.
I’ve been following Ashley’s blog for a long-time now (the only blog I read on a consistent basis) and though I don’t know her personally, we’ve communicated a few times. And I’ve taken her course.
If you want to learn your camera, take better photos, this is the course for you. You won’t regret it.
