Welcome to A Year With My Camera - I hope you find the workshop fun, and you see your confidence grow every week.
If you're joining at the end of July, or early August, you're just in time for 30 Days of Composition. This is a light hearted crash course in the art of crafting a careful photograph. Look out for all the details in the email you'll get on Thursday.
There will also be a welcome email waiting for you in your inbox now - please have a look for it and open it, because it is full of important information about what to do next, and how to get the most out of the course.
Email not there?
If you use gmail, it might have been delivered to your Promotions folder. The easiest way to stop this happening with the rest of my emails is to drag and drop the first email from the Promotions folder to the Primary folder. Or you can add firstname.lastname@example.org as a contact. Or you can set up a filter (under settings) so that all emails from email@example.com go to your inbox.
If you use hotmail, it might be in your junk mail, or it might take a few days to arrive. And even then it might be delivered to your junk mail. This is a known problem with hotmail, and there is nothing I can do at my end to fix it. I use MailChimp to deliver my emails, and hotmail has a delivery glitch with some accounts. You can try asking hotmail support to ensure emails from firstname.lastname@example.org are delivered to your inbox, or you can keep an eye on your junk mail. Or best of all - use a different email address, if you have one.
What to expect
You'll get an email every Thursday with a bite-sized photography lesson and homework project. The workshop started at the beginning of the year and you'll jump right in with the current lesson. In the Welcome email there are details of how to find the archives, if you want to go back over any lessons you have missed.
THe facebook group
The private Facebook group is the best place to meet other people doing the workshop, and to get informal feedback on your images.
We use the #AYearWithMyCamera hashtag. Please join in. For every image you post with the hashtag, please Like and Comment on at least one other image using the hashtag.
