Choose from two projects
A year of weekly topics and camera lessons, delivered directly to your inbox. Each week includes a theme to practice, example images, and camera setting tips and tricks. Create a year of memories with beautiful images that you can be proud of, mastering how your camera works while you're at it!
Best if you who want to build photography skills at a "slow & steady" pace or are looking for a year-long project to document your family.
A condensed course, repeated three times per year (spring, summer and fall). Learn the foundations of good photography and get up and running with your camera. Each week you will receive a PDF explaining a new photography concept and how to apply it when capturing your family.
Ideal if you prefer a shorter course format, or don't want to capture your family for a whole year.
What you'll learn
Photography is part technical, part creative. Using simple language and plenty of illustrative examples, we cover a wonderful variety of topics which will help you get better pictures of your family. Camera settings and "how-to" guides are included for the different scenarios you will practice. The year long course covers:
Rule of thirds
Contrasting subject matter
Low depth of field
Point of view
Day in the Life
Family Self Portraits
Posing Your Kids
Embracing your style
Amy Tripple and Heidi Peters are award-wining photographers. Their work has appeared in Parents Magazine, US Weekly, People, The Chicago Tribune and Professional Photographer Magazine. They created Shoot Along to give themselves structure and accountability to capture their own families and decided it would be a great concept to share with other parents.
What began as a personal project has grown into a friendly and rewarding passion, offering support and instruction to parents on six continents. The goal of Shoot Along is to give parents the tools they need to document their families through photography.
Over 3,500 parents have taken part in Shoot Along since it started in 2014.
