Thank you so much for registering for Collect the Moments Summer 2014. We are so excited to begin this journey with you!
The course starts on June 16th 2014. We will email you a day or so before we get started to give you your login details and outline how the course will work.
The course will run over 6 weeks, with each week focusing on an assignment to get you thinking about how best to capture the ordinary and extraordinary moments of childhood.
A little about how it will work:
- Every Monday, an introduction to the topic and your assignment will be posted to the group’s password protected blog. Your assignment will be a small task to get you exploring the topic in question. Extra posts and videos will be published on Wednesdays or Fridays.
- Class discussions and sharing of the assignments will take place on the private Collect the Moments Flickr and Facebook groups. Details of how to join on the class site.
- On Friday, we will come back together on the blog with a plenary of the week’s assignment and with some additional ideas to get your creative juices flowing over the weekend.
- Kat M and Kat G will be available for consultation throughout the course.
- At the end of the 6 weeks, you will be able to download the course’s eBook for future reference on your photographic journey.
- The blog posts will be available on the site for 6 weeks after the course finishes.
What about privacy and safety of my images?
The safety of any images, particularly those of our children, is of the utmost importance. The Capturing Childhood Flickr group will be private to course members. You have complete control over how you share your images, with the option to opt out of the sharing element all together. We have chosen Flickr as a tool for this course as it enables photos to be made to private and only shared with the course participants (or only the Kats, as you see fit).
What is Flickr?
Flickr is a free online photo sharing site. It has a range of options to allow privacy protection and sharing.

How much time will the course take?
The course is written for busy people. The course is centred around twice weekly blog posts and assignments. We would encourage you to take the time to do the assignments to help with your understanding of the topic, but we will leave it totally up to you. The blog posts will be available for a few weeks after the course has ended.
My place was a gift, do I need to do anything?
You lucky thing! If your course was purchased by someone else drop us a line quoting their email so we know which email address to adjust on the class list.
What equipment will I need?
A camera of any sort – from a phone to a point and shoot to a DSLR. The aim of the course is not to instruct you on the technical aspects of photography only. What we want you to do is get you thinking about how you use the camera you have more effectively. The course will be chock full of hints and tips to get you taking better pictures with whatever you have available.
