Frequently Asked Questions about The Frame-Worthy Photo Course
We are about a week into the Spring enrollment period for The Frame-Worthy Photo Course! We've already had some amazing mamas jump in to FINALLY dust off that DSLR, and learn to handle it like a pro. Such perfect timing, too, with Spring quickly approaching (and Summer vacations not far behind - so many opportunities to capture memories ahead!
I'm so excited for each and every student, and what their new-found knowledge means for their families as we embark on 2019.
I've had a few people reach out with questions about the course, and I thought you might have some of the same questions too!
I literally don't know how to use my DSLR outside of automatic mode, and even then I'm not happy with the results. Will I be lost if I'm starting from scratch?
No! In fact, this course was designed specifically for you! The Frame-Worthy Photo Course will teach you everything you need to know to finally understand how to use your camera to take awesome pictures of your kids, and avoid the common frustrations of using automatic mode (ugh, blur in all the wrong places, #amiright).
I don't know if I have the time to dive into the lessons between work and kids! Can I sign up now and take it at my own pace?
Yes! That's the BEST part of this format, and the exact reason I created an online version of my popular in-person course! Sometimes we just need to learn at our own pace. When you sign up you get instant, life-time access to the course materials so you can watch them (and re-watch them!) whenever and wherever works for you. Most of the lessons are short and easily digestible, and can easily be squeezed in during nap time or in place of your weekly Grey's Anatomy viewing (one million seasons in and I'm still hooked, y'all!)
I'm not creative or artsy. Can this course really teach me to take beautiful photos?
First of all, I don't believe this lie about you for even a second. Second, I have a degree in Finance and a 7 year history of working in insurance - it doesn't exactly SCREAM creative background, does it? But now I make a full time living in a creative field. I never considered myself a creative person, but it turns out with the help of some rules and systems anyone can be creative! I really believe it! If you have the desire to take beautiful pictures, you can do it. You just need a little extra guidance and someone to walk you through the process step-by-step.
Can't I just google camera tutorials and learn as I go?
You definitely can. There is a TON of information out there you can sift through if you have the time. But my guess is that's likely what you've done thus far, and it's just not leading to REAL, tangible results. You need a step-by-step system you can implement, and you need to cut out the noise and learn exactly what you need to know to start taking beautiful photographs with a certain stylistic goal in mind. That's exactly what we do in The Frame-Worthy Photo Course. It's a one stop shop so you don't have to sift through the noise!
What exactly will we learn in The Frame-Worthy Photo Course?
Great question! There are four main modules, each of which are designed to teach you to take "frame-worthy" photos in a step-by-step way. In Module One, we'll master your camera so you can finally get it out of automatic mode in a way that is easy to understand and implement. In Module Two, we'll cover lighting. You'll know how to handle light like a pro both indoors and outdoors. In Module Three, we'll talk about composition and where to put your subject within the picture to create beautiful pictures that tell a story. Lastly, in Module Four, we'll launch into Adobe Lightroom to learn how to put finishing touches on our pictures with editing. It's a complete, comprehensive beginner photography course!
My camera is kinda old, and much newer models are on the market. Can I still take great photos?
110% YES. It's not about the camera or the gear or the latest and greatest. It's simply a matter of knowing how to use what you've got. One of the hardest things for me to hear as a photographer is "Wow, what a great photo. You must have a nice camera!" Ugh. It just hurts my heart. It's not the camera that makes a beautiful picture, it's the person snapping the shutter and making all the little decisions along the way! You can create beautiful photographs with whatever gear you have. Take the below series for example. I shot these on a discontinued Canon Rebel T2i and a $125 50mm lens. This camera was literally covered in dust when I got it. But with a quick brush off, and the information that I'm teaching you in The Frame-Worthy Photo Course, I was able to create a beautiful series of images!
Do I have to have kids to take this course?
Definitely not! While the course was designed with busy moms in mind, the content is relevant for anyone interested in learning how to use their fancy camera. We have a few bloggers in the course learning great tips to take better photos for business. All the material and information will still apply, no matter who or what your subject is! Just be ready for lots of cute baby spam throughout the course :)
When will this course be offered again?
As you know, I'm offering this on a limited enrollment period, with the doors closing on April 2nd! Enrollment opens just three times per year so that I can spend time loving on current students and encouraging each of them along in their journey! The next enrollment period will likely be in the late Summer, early Fall.
If you are ready to finally take control of your camera and learn with an awesome group of other moms, this course is for you! Check out additional course information and enroll HERE...
