A Year With My Camera (AYWMC)

A Year With My Camera is a beginners photography course, designed to teach beginners how to use their camera's manual controls to become better photographers. It's free, with weekly email lessons and homework. 

The course and its community are founded on three basic principles:
  1. "The only photographer I will compare myself to is the one I used to be."
  2. "Progress, not perfection."
  3. "Don't forget to have fun."
Of the community, it's all on either instagram or a phone app. I'm not on instagram, and I don't have a mobile phone, so I'm going to put all my lesson notes and homework assignments here, on my photography blog. 

Part 1: Technical

Part 2: Composition

Part 3: Light

Part 4: Creativity

Part 5: Editing

Part 6: Tripods

This sounds like a wonderful thing Leigh! I am looking forward to the results (and, maybe, I will forward to The Ravishing Mrs. TB as she loves to take photos on her I-phone).

Enjoy and learn a lot!

TB, the first lesson has been very interesting. I'll post on it in day or so. Now, if you show The Ravishing Mrs. TB, she may end up wanting a real camera!

Christine, thank you so much!
