Want to take a photography class with me?

We’re looking for a few good moms… to take a photography class! It will be hosted at my house in Rogers, camera1.jpgand the teacher is Melinda Worthington of MJW Photography, who also happens to be the sponsor for our awesome photo gallery here on nwaMotherlode. (Click here to see the snapshots sent in by local moms.)

The class size is limited to 8 people total, so the first 7 people to e-mail me will get a spot in the class. Cost is $50 per person, and that will get you a 3-hour class in a small setting with one of the best children’s photographers in Northwest Arkansas. (Plus, I’ll make sure the snacks are awesome.)

The best part is that you’ll be asked to bring your camera (it should be a digital SLR, any brand), and Mindy will show us how to get the most out of our cameras with info on lighting, shutter speed, aperture and more. (I still don’t know what half the buttons on my camera actually do, so I’m looking forward to finding out!)

I’ve been wanting to take a hands-on photography class for years now, so I’m hoping a few of you picture-lovin’ mamas out there will want to join me. Mindy is lots of fun to be around, and I know we’ll all come away with some great tricks and tips that will result in better snapshots of our kiddos.

To join the class, e-mail me at gwen@nwaMotherlode.com. Once we have a group of 8 people, we’ll set a date and time for the class. Thanks!
