Lots of good stuff happening right's hard to know where to start so I just will.

Last week, I attended The Nursery workshop, taught by the talented Tim Coulson. Despite reading my manual over and over, my dslr and I have never been good friends. My photography has always been a bit hit and miss. I have dabbled here and there but my disappointment and frustration usually lead me to turning the dial back to auto.

After a wonderful day soaking in as much of Tim's knowledge and enthusiam for photography as I could, I am finally feeling like the pieces of the puzzle are fitting together.

Tim is not only a talented photographer but he has a real gift for teaching and connecting with others. Listening to Tim speak so passionately about people and life and capturing the everyday joy was truly inspiring. The idea of spending my time taking better photographs instead of editing them is spot on, I think!

If you ever have the opportunity to attend The Nursery, I promise you'll be glad you did!

So then...a few snaps from the day, the beginning of my photographic journey if you like.
Still a bit hit and miss but no sign of auto ;)

Thank you so much Tim for sharing your passion.
Special thanks to our models, the beautiful and patient Kesh and little Roo.

It was also lovely to meet the other workshop participants.
What a lovely bunch of people to learn with!

After a bit of thought I have decided to have a go at The 52 Project, hosted by the lovely Che and Fidel blog. The perfect opportunity to hone my photography skills and capture my little loves as they grow and change this year.

It looks and sounds like you had a great time, I can tell you're excited about taking more photos now, that's great it is so much fun and Tim's workshop has some valuable tools to help you gain lots of confidence. It is really lovely to meet them in person, they are all so nice and are happy to share what they can with you, very inspirational. Love the happy photos of your three little ones, hope you are all keeping cool and that tomorrow isn't as hot. Happy New year.xx

So lucky of you to be able to get to Tim's workshops. I had to work when he was due in both Brisbane and Sunshine Coast so the photography will remain average at my place for a while longer. So nice to see you joining in, I am looking forward to it, hope I can stay committed. mel x
