“Thank you for Saturday at Balmoral. You were wonderful to learn from, you explain things exceptionally well, in a way I could understand.”

I took the 21 day online challenge. I came in already using manual settings and wasn’t expecting to learn as much as I did! I appreciated the step by step guidance as each course came through my email, and looked forward to each one. When I struggled, it was awesome to be able to post my problem and get a very timely response from Robyn, who took extra time to help me. I’d do it again in a heartbeat (and will with the 8 week course). Thank you Robyn!

I got a new camera for Christmas a year ago with the aim of taking better photos of my children, but I’d never taken it off the Auto setting and I wasn’t particularly happy with the quality of the shots I was getting…too cheesy, too blurry, too dark, too bright, too busy and the list went on.  I’d heard about Please Don’t Say Cheese from a friend who had attended one of the workshops and so I signed up.  Being an absolute beginner in photography I wasn’t sure how much I would learn and retain at a 3 hour workshop, but I was amazed at how much I actually did learn and the quality of some of the shots I walked away with.  Having Robyn on hand to answer questions was really helpful and the help didn’t end there.  Robyn continues to provide assistance via her website where you can upload pictures from the workshop for her to comment on, and a range of other post-workshop activities. I am now able to take the kinds of photos of my children that I have always wanted to. So, what have I learned? I am more aware now of how to achieve a blurred background while keeping the subject in focus, the best position for the subject in a shot, what to focus on and where to focus, how to capture sharp action shots of my kids rather than a blurred image as they dash past, how to use the available light and how to compensate for too much/too little light by adjusting settings on the camera, and how to take candid rather than cheesy shots of my little princesses…and this is only the beginning.

Almost immediately after the workshop I signed up for the 21 day online challenge as I was desperate to keep learning and improving my photography. I have almost finished the challenge and once again Robyn provides feedback on the photos you upload for each challenge….having this support and feedback is very reassuring.  I have also signed up for the 8 week online workshop as I’m just so impressed with how much I have learned and I am craving to learn as much as I possibly can.  I am now able to take the kinds of photos of my children that I have always wanted to.

I highly recommend Robyn’s workshops and online courses if you’d like to take better photos of your children.

“I couldn’t believe that I’d taken this photo! I have always wished I could capture the joy of my children playing so I can remember always the way they are right now. Somehow my photos never quite did that. After attending just a three hour workshop I have learnt the tips and tricks to get beautiful photos every time.

This photo will take pride of place on my home and I’m looking forward to taking many, many more.”
