I really like that the content is broken up into easy to view videos that can easily be fitted into a busy week and re-watched to refresh your knowledge. It also means that you don’t have to set aside too much time in one sitting. When I have 10 or so minutes to spare I can go through 2 – 3 videos. What I really appreciated about the content is that it is so easy to understand and Abigail’s approach is perfect for beginners who don’t know all the technical terminology. In this way you learn without feeling overwhelmed. All you need to start off with is just a camera – be it a phone or simple digital point and shoot camera. Although the course is pitched at those who have a blog or website, the principles learned are ones that can be applied to all sorts of still life photography. Read more…Charlene

Oh so easy! Thanks Abigail for making photography so easy to understand. I love how you’ve broken things down into simple, bite-size chunks that are logical and accessible. I’m enjoying the practical examples and feel like Gromit is becoming a close friend 🙂Robyn
I’m Abigail. A Cape Town based Portrait & Fine Art Photographer. I love creating beautiful images – for my clients, for my own enjoyment and for my blog! I realised that I have a distinct advantage over other bloggers in that, being a professional photographer, I can quickly create any image I need for the blog post I’m writing. That’s when I decided to help out my fellow bloggers, by showing them how simple and easy it is to create beautiful & purposeful images using just their phone cameras or happy-snappy cameras. You don’t need to have all the technical equipment or know-how to have a blog that catches the eye of your readers!
