Aspiring Photographers...check this out!

So I have gotten into the photography fad lately.  I LOVE taking pictures and love learning how I can improve in my photography skills.  I know I will never be a professional, but it's such a fun (and expensive!) hobby, and I love all the memories I get from it.  
I have done a few things to up my skills.  First of all I joined Clickin moms.  I can not say enough great things about this site.  I have gotten so many great tips and ideas from all of the creative ladies (and men) on this site that it is soooo worth the membership fees.  You can check them out by clickin on the button on my side bar.   You won't be disappointed.
Secondly I will be taking a photography e-class with Faith over at Simplicity, entitled, " Simply Bliss- basics of childhood photography" 
Faith is has a coupon code on her Facebook Fan Site, and here is a little more information about the class from Faith:
It will begin the first week of April and run for four weeks. I'll send out weekly tutorials and be giving feedback on photos posted to my Flickr group. I'll be giving you tips on how to take great photos of children (yours or others) now matter where you are - from window light to outside, from action shots to artistic portraits. 

 The class will run in April and you will be joined by some awesome photography bloggers like Courtney Kirkland (who hosts No Mom Talk Monday), Courtney Noffsinger (from Perfect Imperfections),  Sarah Halstead (the NapTimeMomTog) Joni Moore (of Six Cherries on Top) and Brooke Martin as well as others! Registration is $40 for the class. 
Both of these sites are great for working moms like me, who don't have a lot of extra time to get out to take classes!  I would love to go through this class with some of you.  She has many other e-course offering on her site, so be sure to check them out. 
I will be sure to post my progress in class for all of you.  I can't wait!
