Do you feel like you are falling short when it comes to taking great pictures of your kids? Maybe there are buttons on your camera that are a mystery? Or perhaps you need some help to make your pictures look more creative and less like snapshots?
What if you could get the help, motivation and inspiration you need without going to a local community college or taking a weekend away from your family for a photography seminar? That would be awesome.
Shoot Along is designed to give parents a boost in their photography skills in a way that suits busy families. Learn how to capture better pictures of your children in this course covering key topics. Work at your own pace, share your progress in a private Facebook group with other parents doing the same lessons, and really make the most of your camera!
