Giveaway: Eyes Open Creative Photography e-course

Written by
Floret

COCA_COLA_TEST-5026
This week I’m taking a little break from writing about my all-time favorite topic: flowers (don’t worry, it will be brief) to talk about another one of my passions: photography!

If you’re a regular reader, I’m sure you’ve noticed how often I post photos where the background is soft and blurry and your eye is drawn to the sharpness of the bouquet or the single bloom that is the focus of the shot. I just love being able to create dreamy, romantic images with a shallow depth of field. The fact that Chris and I can now manage to capture those types of image was made possible only after taking the Eyes Open Creative Photography E-Course.

Prior to taking the class, we both fumbled with our camera and were never able to get the types of shots we were going for. We both really wanted to share our story in a beautiful, visual way, but figuring out how to do that felt impossible. Even after upgrading to a newer DSLR camera, we continued to be disappointed with most of the photos and were intimidated to shoot in anything but “running man” mode. Then one day while visit Erin Little’s blog I found that she had created an e-course for people struggling with the exact same thing. I registered within minutes!

Erin is the creative force behind a love supreme photography and bbb, one of my favorite lifestyle blogs. Her photographs capture everyday life in such beautiful, creative and compelling ways. It was that “essence” that I hoped to one day be able to capture in my own photos.

After taking her six-week creative photography e-course, I feel like I finally “got” it. It didn’t matter how many times I read my camera manual, I simply didn’t understand aperture or ISO or any of the other scary photography terms used. Through the e-course, Erin was able to explain the terminology and share great visual examples (I learn best by seeing) that made the light go on for me. I finally understood what those terms meant and how to use that knowledge to capture great photos of our flowers, our farm, our family and anything else in front of my lens. During the time I was taking the course, Chris jumped in and started playing with the concepts too. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it was a total game changer for us both creatively and business wise.

The Eye’s Open e-course is packed with photography essentials, plus great handouts and practice activities that really make the learning process fun. Erin’s approachable style and flexible format make it easy to understand and enables you to go at your own pace. She keeps the class size manageable so she is able to answer all your questions, plus provide personalized feedback on your practice shots. It is a fantastic way to learn photography basics, plus explore creative photography for whatever field you’re in.

If you’re…
a gardener wanting to capture the beauty of your blooms
a designer or crafter seeking to capture your creations before you send them out the door
a parent wanting to chronicle fleeting moments with your kids
a blogger or a creative-type needing high quality images for your website
someone who just wants to take better pictures

Well, this e-course was designed just for you.

JESSIE_GUY-193
I invited Erin to chat a little bit more about her photography, the e-course and her work capturing magical moments in her life and the lives of happy couples in Maine and beyond.

Erin B: First off, thank you again for creating this course and for helping me finally understand my camera! I still refer back to my manual to this day.

Erin L: I’m so glad! And thank you for having me hear and helping spread the word. I am always so thrilled to collaborate with you!

JULY_2014-3094
Erin B: Can you share a little bit about your business and background and how the course got started?

Erin L: Well, photography goes way back for me. I started putting together photo shoots when I was around 6 or 7. But it wasn’t until I started a lifestyle blog 8 years ago that photography started turning into a way to support my family. Over the years I have continued to share my photos through my blog, while I developed a photo business alongside. I started shooting weddings because of the convenience of scheduling around childcare, but in the last few years have switched more to editorial and commercial work. Because of my blog, I have received countless emails over the years asking questions about photography and camera logistics and such. I found myself typing out the same responses over and over again, and one day I thought that I should put all my knowledge into one place so I could share it with everyone.

I am self taught, which I think enables me to write a course that isn’t intimidating for a beginner. I do not learn well when I have a lot of technical terms written in a dry way thrown at me. I prefer a personable approach, with what you need to know written in a way that’s easy to grasp. That’s what I aimed to do when writing this course. I wrote it like I was explaining everything to a friend sitting next to me.

JULY_2014-2796
Erin B: For the benefit of those not familiar with e-courses, can you explain how it works?

Erin L: E-courses are essentially like long-distant learning. I think the formats of them differ depending on how they’re set up and such, but mine is pretty low key.There are 6 main lessons spread over 6 weeks. I would say it takes, on average, 20-30 minutes to read through each of them. There are some videos to accompany the lessons which are optional. Alongside each lesson is a photo challenge, which is basically some suggestions on what to practice from the current lesson. Shooting everyday is important to allow the new information to really sink in, even if for only 10-15 minutes a day. Lastly, there are some awesome guest posters each day who write a little about their photography experience and answer some questions about how they do what they do!

Throughout the course, there is an optional interactive piece which is a private Flickr group.The participants can share their photos and ask questions to receive feedback from myself and others.

10138093166_43e91ef635_o-2
Erin B: What are some of the topics you’ll be covering in the next e-course? And what new features are you including specifically for flower fanatics like me?

Erin L: We go over everything from photography basics (exposure, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc.) to portraits, shooting in a creative way, and even how to add more creativity to your life! There is a very basic intro to editing using a free program online available to everyone, just to get people started. I am planning on adding an additional course on editing over the winter. For flower fanatics, I wrote an additional mini lesson on photographing flowers! That’s part of week 4, and it’s aimed to help you become your own photographer for your floral business!

10138093776_bfb810e9c2_o-2
Erin B: Sounds great! I am so tempted to take the course again! Erin, thank you again so much for demystifying the DSLR camera for me and for helping Chris and I to take our photography to a whole new level. And thank you for supporting other farmer-florists and designers with your flower-focused course additions.

10999103084_de60ed852e_c-2
Ok flower friends, who’s ready to finally dive in and learn how to use that fancy digital camera thats been sitting in the back of the closet since last Christmas? I promise, you won’t regret taking the leap!

    Three entries have disappeared. One from yesterday at 10:37 pm last night Sept 20th. It was posted right after Jenny R. saying Sept 21 5:36 am saying awaiting for moderation. This afternoon I looked and at first it didn’t even show in the list so I entered again at 4:37. Then I sent one saying the correct time here in California as 4:37pm left them as awaiting moderation. Now I see they aren’t even listed. Is there something I should do?

    Sent an entry California time 10:37 pm and it said waiting for moderation. My entry was right after Jenny Rae which said 5:19 am. I couldn’t figure out why the time of my entry said 5:37 am. But now I see that it isn’t even in the list. I’m sad that it wasn’t entered.
    My favorite subject is capturing the blessings that surround me daily. My loves include my family, garden and what we cook together.

    Mine is my garden, I have been tending my small patch of paradise for 27 years now. You know when you have those days when the light and colors all come together to make such delight of the senses. I have tried to capture those moments but I come away knowing I have missed something or have done something that’s not right. I will be 55 next month and taking a photography class has always been on my bucket list. My youngest daughter just entered her junior year in college. I have a empty nest now and I find that now is the time to explore all the things that I have been wanting to do but for one reason or another (time, money and all the myriad things that have to be put first) have had to take a back seat. I am not a singer or a writer they have legacies to leave behind. My legacy is this garden that nurtures me every single day. I want to capture this piece of land in a way that will not be forgotten. Thru pictures we are able to do so. I always say if only I had the resources to keep it going even when I am gone..sadly it can’t be done… be well

    My favorite photography subjects revolve around my farmette -Magpie Grove. Fruit tree blossoms and birds building nests in the spring, fruit and flowers in the summer, the harvest (by wildlife and people) in the fall and the serene, foggy winter.

    My daughter is getting married November 9th. Although we have a wonderful photographer the day of the wedding, there are many photo opportunities leading up to the big day. Also, my first grand-baby is coming to the wedding (he will be 1.5 months old). I have tried reading books on photography, but nothing sticks. This course is a “just in time” opportunity to quickly hone some much needed skills! No more pictures of the bride with her eyes shut – like I took at my son’s wedding.

    My favorite subject is my son, Parker. He is 10 months old and changing every day! I try to capture as much as I can because he’s growing way too fast! I have hundreds of pictures of him, and some aren’t great but I just can’t part with them! I am just coming to the end of my year long maternity leave and starting my own floral design company so that I can work from home. I recently did a styled photo shoot to build my portfolio with a professional photographer which was quite costly. I also did another styled shoot and took the photos myself, I was surpirsed that I got some good shots but I really was just fumbling around with the camera! I would love to take Erin’s course so I can keep building up my portfolio and also capture more memorable moments with Parker!

    My son! My very first baby, who wiggles the second I click the shutter. In second place is the cat – big, white, blue-eyed cat – who also wiggles as soon as I click the shutter. I guess that’s why some cameras have a “kids and pets” setting. I’m particularly struggling with low-light photos (BC, basement apartment.. sigh).

    (Also, living in BC, it’s hard to not want to take pictures of all the beautiful scenery – I particularly like detail shots.)

    This is an amazing opportunity for everyone and whoever wins is very lucky! Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all!

    Farmers markets…I sniff them out wherever we travel, much to the chagrin of my two daughters, who have been raised this way! They want to hit the beach and I’m searching out the nearest farm stand! Not only do I support local farmers, but I LOVE photographing all the wonderful food, flower bouquets, value added products and always interesting characters (normally, that’s the farmers!)

Coastal views, mountain landscapes, dramatic storms, flowers (my dahlia patch specifically) and my dogs all hold a special place in my life and heart. But at the end of the day I’d have to say that my dogs are my favorite subjects. Their constant energy and enthusiasm bring me such endless joy. It’s surprising what I capture in pictures that I’d miss out on otherwise because they are always in motion.

    Wow,
    Crazy timing, its funny how much manifesting has gotten me to where it has. I was just putting some beautiful thoughts into the universe this morning about taking my photography to a new level. I wanted to be a photographer, tried studying it in college, but was greatly disappointed as my advisor told me that I wouldn’t be able to take one single photography class till year 2/3 in college! WHAT!! I tried it, left, and explored the central American coast, taking thousands of photos along the way. Now, taking my passion for growing, I have started a flower farm, and am getting back into my photography more and more. Flowers, nature, bugs, clouds, and my 3 year old are what interests me most, and I often find myself battling ideas through and through my head on how the get that “rockstar” shot. Art feeds my soul. Growing thing feeds my need for nurturing and aiding, and designing lets me let go of it all and flow with what is, a true “artists” dream! Sorry to ramble, enjoy!

    My favorite subject when shooting photos are the small moments: the way the light is hitting a wall just so, the fleeting expressions on a friend’s face, and the unexpected beauty you find all around you if you take the time to see it. Additionally, I farm and work hard to capture the feeling of being in that place and doing that work. It’s not an easy task, but I want to share the magic with my customers so they feel and realize that they are a part of the bigger whole: the land and the community that grows from there.

    I own a small floral design studio out of my home in Northern California.

These moments captured in time are the reason I took on this career.

    My favourite photography subject is flowers – as close-ups, focusing on textures, with insects or other wildlife, with due, as part of landscapes, vibrant colours, black & white, staged in a still life or growing in their natural environment. Although most of this is snapped on Instagram.

    I love to take photos of my daughter holding up dahlias, or heirloom tomatoes, the same size as her pretty little head.

    My favorite photography subject is my David Austin Rose garden and the arrangements that I make with them. Though I do have a pretty good camera, I’m lucky if one out of 25 shots comes out looking good. I need help!

    Favorite photography subject? Flowers, always flowers. Well, also the insects and other critters that visit them.

    My favorite subject to photograph is nature. Whether it be a single flower, one of my arrangements, birds, insects, clouds, gardens, the moon…

    I love to photograph the floral arrangements I create. I like to see the contrasting colors and textures, and how they intermingle in the frame. I would love to be able to capture them in a more dynamic way.

    My favorite photography subjects are my two sweet little ones, but a close second are capturing all of the special details to the parties I plan. I would so love to increase my talent at this!

    Choosing a favorite subject is hard! I love using my camera to capture the changes of a season, of a bloom, or the changing of my son’s life.
