I’ve loved photography since I was a little girl.  I used to drag my younger cousin around, propping her against trees and tractors, snapping all the way.

Of course, I had no idea what I was doing, but it was a whole lotta fun.

When I started blogging 2 years ago, composition and angles came back quickly, but shooting interiors?  That was a whole different story.

Last year, when I met Kevin and Layla Palmer, Kev quickly gave me some tips–and it didn’t hurt that I got to watch him shoot our home for Cottages and Bungalows all day either.

If you’ve read the blog for a while, it’s no secret they’re some of my favorite people, but it’s also no secret they’re both incredibly talented & willing to share those talents with the world.

When they told me about Kevin’s new photography site idea, ShootFlyShoot, I was SOOO excited.

Kevin and his good buddy, Josh (who’s also an incredibly talented photographer), just launched ShootFlyShoot where they share super laid-back video photography & photoshop classes.

I signed up on day 1 for their Photography 101 class, and LOVED it.  It’s comprised of 12 different videos and covers everything from shooting interiors to portraits to equipment to…well, everything a beginner would need to know.

The first class (Photography 101) is for DSLR beginners–and is totally designed to get you out of the green box and into Manual mode.

In the 12 online videos, you can actually see them in action, shooting and turning dials on their DSLRs…it’s completely hands on.  Watching along totally took me back to that first day I met Kevin (which also happened to be the same day I lost the fear of the “M”), and learned so much from watching him shoot our home.

Taking this first class, I learned a ton about interior lighting (and how to shoot better shots of my kids), and I can’t wait to watch the videos on landscapes and products.

Plus, I just love real people teaching real people real solutions, if you know what I’m sayin’.

Love their goofy selves.  It’s pretty cool to see how much work they obviously put into this site–and how it’s already helping so many of us!

Here’s to all of us losing fear of the “M.”
