MOPs and Photography

I’m a part of a local Mothers of Prschoolers group who wanted to have a speaker on photography. Moms and photography? Perfect combination. We are always pulling out our cameras to snap cute things our kids do.

I started my photography journey as a scrapbooker who wanted to get nicer photos to go into the pages I was designing. Enter The Daily Digi and Katie the Scrapbook Lady. The Daily Digi regularly has photography posts from Katrina Kennedy who explains things in a way that is so easy to understand. Katie the Scrapbook Lady raves about classes that Katrina teaches on her blog.

I signed up for Katrina’s daily photo prompt emails and soon received an invite and discount for Your Life Captured Through the Lens. This class helps you hone your composition skills and teaches you haw to go from using auto modes on your camera to taking full control with manual mode. I decided to sign up and learned a ton.

Well, bragging about how much I learned through this class got me asked to actually present at MOPs. So, here I am, night before the presentation, finalizing everything. I hope everyone finds this helpful! I have linked to the handout so you can click through to the handy links I posted in the reference section.
