We're excited to launch our latest e-course today: Capture Real Life in 52 Weeks.
Every year we aim to create a class that inspires documenting and celebrating everyday life! This year our course is filled with new, fresh ways to capture your life each week. You can use any camera for this class, even your smartphone! We don't cover the technical side of photography, but instead focus on getting inspired to just take photos (the really fun part!). This course is a great way to kick start yourself into high gear and take amazing, personal photos all year long!
This course is BIG. I mean, it's meant to push you to capture your real life for an entire year. You can get the full details about the course here, but here's the short and sweet of it. This course is formatted so every month you'll have three to four photography based prompts. These are designed to challenge you to document your life this year. Life moves fast and sometimes if we don't intentionally challenge ourselves to photograph the everyday, it just gets missed. Let's make this year different!
Each session includes example images taken by the teachers (Elsie Larson, Candice Stringham, Mandi Johnson, and Janae Hardy) as well as instructions, tips, and challenges for getting great photos yourself. Each month includes one mini album challenge as well. This is to get you printing and using those beautiful photos that you take, or ones that you already have. Each mini album focuses on a different craft supply or technique, giving you lots of variety throughout the year. The teachers of the course have completed their own mini albums that they share in the lesson, showing through photos and text how you can create your own. If you want to see a full list of all the photo prompt sessions and mini album challenges, click here.
One super exciting feature is that this e-course comes with a kit (while supplies last)! In addition to the e-course, the kit includes: a 4" x 4" booklet (28 pages), 3" x 4" stamp set, and a mini pigment ink (in lipstick red!). There are a limited number of kits (one thousand), so once they are sold out, they are gone! We will still offer the course for sale after kits are sold out, but the price will not change. So, if you want the kit, be sure to order ASAP. (Once the kits are sold out, we will update the shop listing so that customers will know the kits are gone.) You can check the shop listing to see what the stamps/kit look like. Also—the kit ships free US and international customers!
The course (including kit while supplies last) costs $36 USD. (Whatta deal!)
This course allows you to work at your own pace. It is designed so you have a session to complete each week for an entire year, but if you find that you fall behind, don't worry! Just keep going. You receive access to all the sessions when you purchase the class. The goal is to push yourself to document those memories, so it's OK if you need to work at a slower pace some months.
Candice even traveled all the way to New York to photograph Naomi and Josh and their beautiful family for this e-course. It's really special, and we can't wait to share it with you!
We are SO excited to see what you all create with this course. To read more, check the shop listing here. Let us know if you have any questions in the comments! xo. Elsie and the ABM team
