I grew up with a curiosity for photography, but I never allowed myself to explore it. I made it almost all the way through my undergraduate years before I realized that curiosity didn’t stop there: my heart beat faster when I photographed couples in love. I learned that first hand when one of my roommates told another, “just go have Lindsay take your engagement pictures; she has a camera!” My eyes were opened, and the rest is history.
Now I’m able to take pictures of couples during a season of pure joy—engagement. I’m able to capture an heirloom at their wedding to be framed and passed down to children and grandchildren. I’m able to come alongside others and help them do the same. It’s the dream.
This course was created after a number of people asked me if I could teach them how to use their cameras. It brought me back to 2013 when I remembered that very feeling: “someone, anybody, just show me the basics of WHAT I need to know, so I can know HOW to capture memories!” And quick! There were so many opinions out there, but there wasn’t a course that offered to me the tools for the basics of what I needed: to be confident with my camera. In hindsight, I wish I could have sifted through the info to find just the basics. After taking the long road yet finding so much joy, success and fruit from it, I decided to create a course that has the basics of what beginner Lindsay would have needed years ago--a course that will allow you to confidently capture crisp, evenly-exposed photos with your camera so that the world is at your fingertips.
Oh, I get fired up about LIGHTROOM. It is hands down the best in it’s efficient workflow possibilities and detailed options for photographers who edit several photos at a time. Because of the workflow capabilities and tools within the program, I do not feel bound to my computer; I feel like a mom who enjoys editing. Because of its organizational ease, I know where my images are, because let’s be honest, they’re worth their weight in gold--and so are my client’s! And because I understand what’s important for my realm of editing, I can confidently select edits to my own style that leave me creatively-energized and proud of the art I create. Does this program sound like something you need? As a mom, hobbyist or professional, Lightroom is absolutely for you! Imagine the potential if you allowed yourself the room to simply just learn it--in one sitting?
“I’m just frustrated that I spent hours trying to figure all this out by reading online and watching YouTube videos, but I could never really get a good idea of what I was supposed to do and then I was able to understand it all in like 15 minutes from watching The Capture Course.”
