Pictures are the heart and soul of scrapbooking. Without pictures, we would simply be journaling or designing. For many of us, scrapbooking started with a love of photography. As in, "What am I going to do with all these pictures? I'll start a scrapbook!"
The motivation for taking a photograph is similar to the motivation to scrapbook. We want to create, we want to remember the moment, and we want to see the obvious in a new way. Photography and scrapbooking share that special feeling of preserving and sharing memories, moments, and feelings.
We are so exited to welcome Tracey Clark as a new instructor for BPS. Tracey is the founder of Shutter Sisters, a collaborative photo blog and thriving community of female photo enthusiasts. She is also a published author with her latest book Shutter Sisters Guide to Photography due out this fall (2010).
Tracey’s new class Picture Spring: 30 days of soulful seasonal celebration is a 30-day guided e-class that will encourage and inspire you to use photography to celebrate the beauty that surrounds you — even amidst the dishes and laundry, deadlines and demands. Whether you are an expert photographer, or just starting out, this workshop will help you see things in a completely new light with the final goal to ensure that each picture you create is its own piece of art.
All you need to participate is a camera (any camera) and the willingness to learn!
I encourage you to sign up for Tracey’s class soon, it’s filling up fast!
We will be giving away one seat free to Picture Spring. Please submit a photo that you love in the "Photos I Love" Gallery by Wednesday, March 17th at 10 AM PST and write a short note in the gallery telling us why you love the photo. We will announce the winner on March 17th in Tracey Clark’s guest blog.
