Enter for your chance to win a one-on-one Skype with Pebbles and Polka Dots Photography

 

I have had tons of emails lately from women (and men too!) all around the country asking if I offer my workshop through Skype. Well, it’s finally here!

The Moms with Cameras Skype workshops have been created!  Get one on one help from me and I will guide you on how to nail those perfect shots with your own children and clients.

You. Yes you. That Mom who has that nice DSLR camera and leaves it on Auto (ack!) or the Mom who wants that nice camera to get those precious shots of your kids! This is for you! It’s time to get yourself comfortable with that big clunk of metal and take the photos you have always wanted of your babies and children.

Have you been wanting to attend a Newborn workshop but read, “must be comfortable shooting in manual” and then decide you can’t attend it. This workshop is for you! I will make you ready to move onto one of those workshops with confidence!

Get your money’s worth from spending so much on that camera and use it to it’s full potential! Those gorgeous straight out of camera shots are right at your finger tips!!!

Are your photos super dark? Blurry? Completely white? Using your flash instead of taking advantage of the natural light around you? Wondering what all those knobs and buttons are on your camera? Fumbling around with your camera while your missing those precious moments will all be in the past. I am here for you.

I will teach you how to use your camera on other settings besides Auto! We will go over Manual and Aperture Priority settings, composition, focal points, shutter speed, and what to look for in order to nail that picture right from your camera (no editing needed) and make it an art piece.

Are you an inspiring photographer and want to get your toes in the photo water? This workshop is for you! I’ll also give you business advice on what you need to purchase to get started and have a successful photography business.

When: Wednesday and Friday evenings 7pm-10pm EST

Where: Skype

What: Moms with Cameras Skype workshop

How much: $350 (FREE FOR YOU IF YOU ENTER BELOW!!!)

Includes:

~An emailed 50+ page PDF packet with all the information you will need so you can follow along during the Skype session and take notes.

~ Electronic coupons from all my workshop sponsors to their shops

What you need: A DSLR camera (doesn’t matter if it is a Canon or Nikon), and I also highly recommend a 50mm 1.8 lens ($100).

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Take this time and make it about you. Get ready for a empowering evening and to blow your family members away with the pictures you will take. Now is the time!

I would love to take your class via skype or in person at your studio. I will “pay it forward” in all that I learn from you. I’ve played around with the manual settings but the outcome is never quite what i want. A little direction would go a long way. Thank you for being a wonderful inspiration.

April Booher - January 17, 2012 - 3:21 pm

I would love to WIN because I am trying to expand my knowledge of photography and the business side of photography. I took a photography class in high school and that is where my love of photography started. I worked for a nationwide photography studio for 8 years and then in Sept 2010 I decided to try and get my own photography business up and running. I have had some really great months and then some really slow months. Up until now I have only done on location(outdoor) photography but I want to turn either my sun room or my den into a studio. I love newborn photography but I haven’t been able to do much in my own business yet. I would LoVe to Win and it would be an honor to learn from you!! :)

Amy Kolb - January 17, 2012 - 3:33 pm

I accidently left two comments that I already liked you….so I will use this post to combine my 2nd and 3rd comment entries :-)

I would LOVE to win because after I had my baby girl I got into photography so I could capture more of her moments and eventually be able to stay home with my future kiddos. My husband let me buy the Mark ii and I’m slowly learning how to use it but would love to have some mentoring.

I shared about the giveaway on my personal page :-)

WOW!! Aaaaammmaaaaazzzzzzzing!!! I’m just dying to learn about shooting in natural light. I do a lot of photography for family and friends, for free no doubt, and would love to take my passion for photography and people to the next level. I lost my career a few years back and now working in a job I hate. I wake up everyday literally crying, not wanting to go. With your help I know I could jump to the next level and be able to do what i truly love, full time!!!

Why would I love to win? Well, because I feel like I can never stop learning. I love photography and capturing moments in time – not just of my family but for others. I see myself grow with each new client. I love that learning is a never ending process. I love the smiles on my clients’ faces when they are reviewing their sessions and again when they receive the final product. I want to continue to learn and grow!

Angela Larabie - January 18, 2012 - 12:45 am

I would love to win your skype session because there are certain parts of the photography and editing process that I’m just not “getting”. If I could fill in those blanks, it would really help my self confidence!

I would love this.opportunity to win this. I am a beginner into the photography world and this would help increase by knowledge of photography and build my skills. Please, consider me as you are making decisions. Thank you.

Christelle Hammes - January 19, 2012 - 3:10 pm

Just thinking about it makes me want to cry long crocodile tears.
I absolutely LOVE photography and your work inspire me.
I’m currently at home on maternity leave and just even getting close to the thought of returning to work and leaving my little angel with someone I don’t know and missing my ‘photo a day’ which I’ve started with him and missing all his awesome new things he learns on a daily basis breaks my heart.
If I can learn a bit more about photography and do something special and capture special moments for more than just my family but for everyone else in the community and still be able to be at home with my son would make me the happiest mommy on earth.
