I have many excuses for why I only seem to manage a blog post once every six months or so. I have so many ideas for posts, but they rarely make it to print. One of those excuses is my rubbish photos.
I think of a great idea for a post, but then I worry how I can illustrate it. I scroll through my phone and just see generally average pictures.
I’m not sure I can make that excuse anymore though as I’ve been shown the light, courtesy of photographer and Instagrammer extraordinaire Emily Quinton.
Over four weeks, Emily led myself and a crew of students through a wonderful online photography course where we talked about everything from finding your photographic style to the best photo editing apps for your smartphone.
I learned so much from Emily, who was incredibly generous with her knowledge and her time. Despite my fellow students being scattered all over the world, I really feel like we’ve been in the class together and that I’ve made some lovely mates.
Here are a few of the piccies I took during the course. It was so much fun, and a great excuse to buy flowers for yourself.
I was a little bit addicted to Instagram before I started the workshop; now I’ve got a definite problem! Are you on Instagram? Come and find me if you are. I’m @bexjenkins!
You can read more about the course and see mine and some other before and after shots here. Thanks again, Emily!
