I do love the (British) blogging community (I love the my kids/edu community too.. but that is another topic) – there are so many of us with such a broad range of skills and abilities. Everyone bring something different to the table – some are very technical and solve all our technical woes (such as Liz, Nickie, Jax and the long suffering Fiona), there some that are crafty (ahem, I could list you all.. but recently Emma, Kelly, Rebecca and Liz have been particularly good at joining in with Get Crafty), some that are foodie and some that inspire me. And then there are those that are great at photographs and who have help us all with our interest in photography (Jay and Spud).
The main thing though, is that we are a community. And without this community, Red Ted Art would not be where it is now.
And as part of that community, I like supporting my fellow bloggers. Two of which have just launched an ecourse (go you!) on photography: Capturing Childhood!
Want to hear more AND win a place? Then read on.
Capturing Childhood was born from a mutual love for photography, film and recording family moments. It’s creators Kat Goldin (Slugs on the Refrigerator) and Kat Molesworth (Housewife Confidential) decided to create the business to share their passion for taking great pictures every day.
Kat and Kat firmly believe in capturing the fleeting moments of childhood and creating lasting memories for the future. Both are head over heels in love with their families and use their skills to record the wonderful humdrum of everyday life.
Their first six week course is called Collect the Moments. Collect the Moments will get you flexing your creative muscles and introduce you to some basic technical tips that can dramatically improve your photography of your children. It will be chock full of inspiration, advice and equipment hacks to help you take another look at your children through the lens of your camera.
It is not about having a fancy camera or expensive editing equipment. It is about using the tools you have at hand to take the best pictures possible of your children. And more than that, it is about inspiring you to think differently about capturing childhood.
The course begins on Monday 28th of May and runs for six weeks. Registration opens Saturday 28th April at 2pm BST and places are limited on a first come first served basis.
You have the opportunity to win a place on Collect the Moments worth £75.
