What our members are saying…
“The SHOOT 2015 project has allowed me to capture experiences of my family that tells a story of who we are. From looking at lighting differently to seeing my everyday surroundings – these projects have really helped to open up what was definitely a narrow mindset.”
“SHOOT 2015 lessons have been a great way to expand my creativity and try new things in my photography style. It’s been fun to see my work progress from what I thought was “pretty good” into something that continues to get better and better. I now have a collection of beautiful photos of my family that I’ll cherish forever!”
“I joined ShootAlong in 2014 and am so happy I did! I feel like I have such a better understanding of what goes into making a great image, from the basics of focus and composition to more artistic elements such as framing and color and texture. I will definitely be back for SHOOT 2016!”
“SHOOT 2015 has been an amazing resource for me as a photographer. It has been a great frequent reminder to get out and shoot pictures of my own kids, which (as someone who does family photography part-time) I sometimes forget to do!”
