GIVEAWAY: Simplicity SLR Photography class spot! Ends August 31st.

Faith at Simplicity – my life in {mostly} photographs is hosting an {SLR} Photography class during the month of September and is giving away one spot in her class to one of you awesome Paper Mama readers (a $25 value). But, don’t wait to see if you win! go ahead and register for the class, Faith will refund the registration to the winner!

from today's photowalk with my sister Abi

Class will begin September 6 and end October 2 and will focus on how to use the settings on your Digital SLR Camera, specifically focusing on Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO & White Balance. This online class is geared towards busy women, most are mothers and bloggers though you don’t have to be a mommy or a blogger to join up! Each week Faith will email tutorials and assignments to increase your technical confidence and inspire your creativity.

This is the second online class that Faith has taught – here is what participants from the last photography class had to say about their experience:

Thank you so much Faith! Your feedback and encouragement are awesome! I am loving your course so much. I already know that I will be taking the next one as well πŸ™‚ – Kristin

I hesitated over whether or not to take your class — I was drawn to it because it was inexpensive, but then I wondered what would I really get , On the very first day I was glad for my decision — the lesson sounded simple enough, but was actually a challenge for me to accomplish and I learned a lot from it. I am very happy that I signed up and would highly recommend it. – Betty Anne


I feel so privileged to be taught by [Faith] in an environment of other really good photographers! The interactive portion of the class is on my favorite photographic website, Flickr and it’s working out so well! Each week includes two PDF lessons which are short and make for easy reading, but are packed with tips and tricks! Her writing is conversational and easy to follow and she uses photographic examples to illustrate her points, which I love… Faith responds very quickly to all submissions and questions and is a wonderful workshop host! 
– Lynda

    *mandatory entry*I really, really want to take this class because I'm feeling frustrated with my ability to use my manual setting on my camera, and because I want to be a better photographer. I haven't been taking as many photos lately, because I've suddenly realized how bad my shots were! :/ Aside from those reasons, my friend, Kristin, has already taken this class and it seemed like she really got a lot out of it. :)My email address is wright_ang@comcast.net.
