I wanted to update you all on the Eyes Open e-course...the start date is fast approaching and it's been an absolute thrill and pleasure to work on! I wanted to take a moment to answer some questions I've received:
Do I need a fancy camera to take this course?
Nope, you don't! As long as you're interested in learning more about the basics of photography, want to learn how to add some creativity to your life, and be inspired by other photographers and artists, then you will love this course! You can use your phone camera, a point and shoot, film camera, or digital SLR!
Is this course for beginners?
This course is designed to provide you with a GOOD solid foundation about photography basics, and the opportunity to put those basics to use. So if you know absolutely nothing about photography, you will learn plenty! And if you know some, but don't feel completely comfortable navigating your camera, you will become comfortable with these skills. If you're pretty familiar with your camera and the basics of photography, you will be inspired by the guest posters, the creative living piece, and learn plenty about "breaking the rules" and developing your own unique style!
How much of a time committment is the 6 week course?
The great thing about this course is all of the lessons will be available for 8 weeks online...that's two months! Not only that, but the main lessons will be available in a PDF format to download so you can keep the information forever! I would say you can put as much time into it as you can and you will still benefit from this course, whether it's an hour here or there, or a couple of hours a day!
And I'm excited to announce the amazing, fabulous, talented and so inspiring photographers who will be guest posting during the course!
These guest posters are all people who inspire me and I'm so grateful that they are willing to be a part of this e-course!
And...the giveaways! Some awesome companies and individuals are offering some super great goodies for some lucky participants...
This e-course is not only my way of sharing my love of photography with YOU, but it also allows me to continue supporting myself and the little one through my creative work. I am so grateful to each and every one of you that signs up for the e-course. Being a creative individual who is trying to make a living for myself and a child is challenging and sometimes quite scary! Bills need to be paid and food needs to be on the table, and sometimes it all seems so impossible. With no steady income to count on, making sure I can support the two of us is a daily worry. But I have always been determined to work hard and let what I have to offer the creative world take me where it's supposed to go.
This e-course is not only helping to support the two of us, but it is also fulfilling my desire to stay creative, work hard, put all my energy and intention into my work, share my love of creative photography with others, and feel good about what I'm doing.
I am offering a FREE spot in the e-course to one lucky person! And the rest of you can get 20% off when you sign up below using the code "bluebirdbaby20"
