I have been blogging at Digital Photography for Moms for 10 years. I started shooting with a digital camera 14 years ago. And I’ve been editing photos for nearly as long.
But what should be more important to you if you are considering taking this mini-course is that I am a teacher. I began my career teaching Latin to college students and middle schoolers. And if I can teach a 14-year-old to amo, amas, amat, that means you can expect to learn complicated material easily when you take any of my courses.
My one goal as a teacher is to make sure that students leave my courses confident in their new knowledge and able to apply it independently. I incorporate teaching strategies recommended by the US Department of Education to ensure understanding and retention.
I’ve taught thousands of people to take better photos. I’ve helped thousands become quality photo editors.
After all that experience, I know how to explain things so that they are easy to understand. I know the questions students ask – and I answer them before students think to ask them.
You have beautiful people to photograph and you deserve to enjoy the process and feel proud of the results. I know you can do it!
