I was recently invited by my friend Rathna to speak about photography for our Mothers Meetup group. I thought it was a great opportunity to bond with moms and teach them how to get the most of out of digital cameras. We coined the workshop, the “Mamarazzi Photography Workshop.” Catchy, isn’t it? I can’t take credit for the term, but the word has been thrown around photography forums referring to the growing group of moms who take up photography so they can document their children’s life.
The workshop was held in my living room and was very casual. In attendance were 5 mamarazzis and their cute babies. Fueled by Starbucks coffee, fresh strawberries and bagels, we discussed cameras and how to get the most of their gear, digital photography 101 and basic composition. Afterwards, I couldn’t resist not shooting their kids (with my camera, of course) and here are some of my favorites from that 1 minute per kid session. It was a lot of fun!
