THE SPRING PROJECT
– your spring in 9 perfect clicks –
What’s The Spring Project?
A hands on photography course for beginners, focussed on kids photography. You capture your spring in 9 photo’s. In three session in March/April the basics of your camera are explained; you’re getting introduced in the world of kids photography; you create your own moodboard which leads to your Spring Project: 9 photo’s that reflects your family’s Spring. For example: 9 photo’s with a hint of blue in them. Or 9 photo’s in black&white, or close ups. Or 9 photo’s all to do with your daily family routines. There will aslo be a morning in April in ‘the field’ to practise and get hands on help from Maud.
Than there’s a month with no meetings, you’re busy to capture your Spring! Your goal is to make 9 pictures that are coherent and form a perfect series. We keep in touch through a dedicated Facebook group and via email.
After that we meet one-to-one and you bring your selection of 9 (or more if you can’t choose) photo’s. Together we sit down and discuss your photo’s. So direct feedback, one to one, is given. I help with the editing and together we make your 9 photo’s fit together perfectly.
In the final meet up you all present your Spring Project: your 9 photo’s. You explain why you choose these photo’s, what your goal was, what my feedback was etc. I will off course also present my Spring Project, and give feedback on your work.
So: it’s a course about photography, it’s hands on, you have a reason to get your camera out of it’s bag this Spring, you learn about kids’ photography and in the end you have 9 perfect photo’s that reflect your Spring! And maybe you’ll make some new friends.
