Welcome to A Year With My Camera - I hope you find the workshop fun, and you see your confidence grow every week.
There should 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.
Although most people get the welcome email within 5 minutes, 4 or 5 people a day who sign up have to wait more than an hour. I don't know why there's a wait for some, but if you haven't received the email after a couple of hours, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to expect
You'll get an email every Thursday with a photography lesson and a project. The first 6 lessons will get you off Auto mode, and then the workshop continues for the rest of the year with a series of lessons alternating creative and technical photography.
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.
CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THURSDAY?
Most people start by having a go at the #Make30Photos challenge. You can read more about it here – #Make30Photos challenge. But please check your inbox for your Welcome email first.
