Lesson 1 
The first lecture is all about achieving natural photographs of babies and children of all ages. There is a particular method I use all of the time for getting happy, natural looking pictures. The different techniques relating to this method are explored and illustrated, as I show you photographs I have taken using each technique. The photos are mostly the finished product which were used commercially and there are some behind the scenes shots showing you how I achieved the pictures. 

Lesson 2

The second lecture follows on from the first in the respect that it's about more techniques and attitudes. It contains more of my knowledge, views and philosophies on photographing children and babies. I talk about specific methods relating to particular age groups but as with all of the lectures, it includes all ages, from newborn to teens. Again I talk through my own photographs, to show you how I used the techniques I'm explaining and how I put them into use to create each picture. I share my experiences and give you tips and advice on how you can achieve similar pictures. 

Lesson 3 

Once you have learnt the techniques mentioned in the first two lectures, you can then start to improve your technical abilities. This lecture is more technical but I don't blind you with science and too much jargon. Keeping it as simple as possible, I want to give you a better understanding of cameras and photography so you will become a better photographer. However, it's not all about equipment and data, as I also find this a little boring myself. I want you to enjoy taking pictures. I'm merely giving you guidelines on the technical things which will give you more control and skill as a photographer. 

The lecture also includes creative things like composition, cropping, camera angle etc. 

Lesson 4 

The fourth lecture is mostly about lighting. Lighting is actually very important and is probably overlooked a great deal. It can make the difference between a mediocre and a great picture. All the elements in a photo can remain the same but if the lighting is beautiful and flattering then so will be the picture. In this lecture I explain the different types of lighting you can use. They are all very simple and are explained again with the aid of my photographs. 

You will be amazed at the difference good lighting makes to your pictures. Especially when combined with all the other skills and knowledge you will have learnt from the previous lectures.
