One of the most exciting brands I connected with at the BlogHer ’11 Conference was Clickin Moms.
Back when I was a kid, my dad was the one who hauled around his Konica in a big leather bag and took all our family pictures. My mother did not ever touch a camera, until point-and-shoots came out. But I’ve noticed an interesting trend in my generation. It’s usually the moms who carry the camera — and not just some little pocket model.
Because, you know, I am one of those moms. I don’t bother getting a seat for the school musical (because I plan to be crouched on the ground in front of the stage) and the possibility of being hit by an errant soccer ball is so worth the money shot of my six-year old scoring a goal.
But I still have many technical questions about how to best use my dSLR, and as I get more into photography, how to best import, edit, and store those precious images. That’s where Clickin Moms comes in. Unlike some other photography communities, Clickin Moms is run by moms for moms. No attitude, no creepy old guys posting photos of scantily clad girls.
Since I’ve joined Clickin Moms, I’ve found a wealth of forums, online classes and even special deals for everyone from beginner to pro. Now you can join, too…
