A little about the class structure:
- Each module is split into three parts with an assignment to help you practice your skills.
- You can approach the modules weekly or at whatever pace suits you.
- You can ask questions, connect with other students and share photos in the closed class Facebook and Flickr groups.
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.
What is Flickr?
Flickr is a free online photo sharing site. It has a range of options to allow privacy protection and sharing.

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?
We use Lightroom for this course. If you don’t have Lightroom installed already, they can be downloaded for a free 30 day trial here. We recommend not doing this until the course starts to make sure you have use of the software throughout the whole of the 4 weeks.
We will be using Lightroom 4. If you use a previous or later version, don’t worry! The software is very similar and the differences will be explained where possible.
If you are interested in purchasing an Adobe programme and have a family member who attends an educational institution (even primary school!) you can purchase the software at a discounted rate. See here for more details.
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. What we want you to do is get you thinking about how you edit the photos on your computer.
