More goodies ...

button1

I was so honored when the oh-so-sweet Angie Warren of The Creative Mama asked me to write a review for her new e-book. I have always enjoyed taking pictures of my fave times and people in my life. From disposeable cameras, to a few point and shoots, to my current beloved DSLR, I have loved documenting and capturing incredible moments throughout the years.
Project Photography is such an inspiration for anyone with a camera! As a mom to two boys, I don't have a lot of time to sit down and read up on my camera's settings, and when I do have a moment, I get boggled up with all the fancy terms and lingo. Angie lays out a simple step-by-step guide to the basic functions and terms and how to use each setting. I have seriously taken notes to put in my camera bag to refer back to! She also gives tips on how the best shots can be achieved, ideas on locations and perfect lighting settings, and ways to get that shot you are hoping for.
After reading Project Photography, I have a renewed spirit for picture taking. I am excited to pull out my camera, play around with the ISO (which I had no idea what it was until Angie explained in lamen's terms for me!!), and capture some of the fun and beautiful moments in my family's life.
Thank you, Angie, for sharing your amazing talent and passion with us. Project Photography is such a refreshing, exciting, and inspirational piece for photographers at any level!

Wouldn't you just love to have that excitement ... a new awakening in your own photography world, and at the tips of your fingers? Angie is offering up TWO copies of her online e-book, Project Photography, for 2 lucky winners!! Over 60 pages of sweet quotes, beautiful pictures, tips, advice, and pointers on how to capture those breath-taking moments!! If you aren't yet familiar with The Creative Mama, please go check her out!!
