Hello and welcome to my stop on the 1000 Words: Capture More blog hop from Studio Calico!  I am thrilled that Studio Calico asked me to join into this class as a photography contributor, combining my two loves: photography and scrapbooking.

So What is this class all about you ask?  Six amazing photographers from the Studio Calico design team are here to help you capture more of the emotion, more of the moment, and more of the story. This class is unlike other photography classes because it doesn’t focus on the technical aspects of shooting. Instead, we’ll be giving you a glimpse into the photographic style of each of our teachers and contributors. We’ll be covering twelve different topics, ranging from everyday moments to special occasions, and helping you to look at photographing them in a more meaningful way.  And you can find out even more and sign yourself up here.  Registration for this class ends soon on 9/30, and the classroom will be up and running on 10/1.

What I will be contributing is a section all about getting YOU in more pictures – tips for getting out from behind the camera, including how to set up a shot and hand the camera off to someone who many not know how to use it.  I will also be sharing a layout or two with images of me and my process behind the shots and designs.  To see some of my recent photography work please feel free to browse the different categories above or as always you can find me on facebook.

Ever better news, I am running a drawing here on the blog today: you can win yourself $10 off the price of the class.  Just leave a comment below (make sure you use a valid email address) and I will pick one winner and announce them right here tomorrow morning!  Please only comment once and your comment may not appear right away as all comments are moderated.

Now make sure you check out all the rest of the fabulous contributors, the links to everyone participating in today’s blog hop can be found here. Hope to see you in class soon!
