First meeting, and photo assignment for July!

It’s very exciting that so many mamas are interested in getting better at digital photography! Our first meeting is set for Monday, June 15 from 6:30-8pm at Studio R in Fremont (315 N 36th St, Suite 201).

I created this blog so that we will have a site that we can use to communicate about upcoming meetings, and so we can share tips and resources. For our group photo assignments I’ve also created a group on Flickr. (You’ll need an invite to post.) I will be learning to get better at all these tools at the same time as getting better with my Canon, so hopefully you will all bear with me. 

Our first photo assignment for the July meeting, given by Nancy Treder our guest speaker next week, will be to photograph “Three of my favorite things.” This will be a great way for us to get to know each other and to exercise our creative juices. When you are photographing, if you can, try and keep notes about what camera settings you used and if you did anything in photoshop to manipulate the photo.

Happy shooting!
