LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Masterclass recap: Photo Organisation with Lightroom

Masterclass Recap: Photo Organisation with Lightroom - A blog post by Rhonda Mason for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

| Written by Ronnie |

Two weeks ago, I held my first masterclass for Photo Organisation with Lightroom. It was at Illie's coffee house in Narrabeen, Sydney, which is actually the place where I go to work every week when Rick's mum comes to our place to look after the boys. Costa and Simone, the owners of Illie's, are just the loveliest people and have grown quite accustomed to having me in their cafe, plugging into their power and taking flatlay shots of my story books on their beautiful concrete floor. Anyway, one day, a few months ago, I hesitantly asked Costa whether or not it might be possible to host a small workshop in their space, and he was completely for it. It all fell into place pretty easily from there on.

It was such a pleasure to finally meet Abbie and Emma, and I loved getting to spend time with Gaby again. To hang out with other like-minded creatives is truly such a blessing and delight, and together, we talked about photography, organisation, work, and, of course, Lightroom, for some five hours. I thoroughly enjoyed the intimate nature of the masterclass, and having all that time to run through my teaching material was a huge bonus. It's one of the main reasons why I love the concept of our masterclasses - there's ample time for one-on-one and lots of opportunity for Q&A.

I also tested a new teaching method at this masterclass: using iPads for screen sharing instead of using a projector and screen. It worked rather well, and I'm so pleased that the girls were all happy and willing to be my guinea pigs. There are a few technical issues to iron out for the future, but this could be a real game changer.

Thanks to An April Idea for the pretty stickers and Bianca Cash for the inspiring prints. A huge thanks also to Abbie for taking these lovely photographs for me, as well as Emma for being our (very talented) impromptu stylist. (I'm not kidding when I tell you that she whipped up that flatlay in the time it took me to get my camera out from my bag.)
