The Key To Taking Pictures ebook- giveaway- CLOSED


I am so excited to share today's giveaway. Not only because it will help any of you out there who need some help with your digital SLR camera but because I find it to be a great source of information.

My sweet husband gave me my Cannon Rebel SLR a couple years ago for Christmas. I was so excited and spent my Christmas Day reading the manual and listening to all my brothers advice on how to use it. I had never used a SLR before and had no idea what I was doing. By the end of the day, I was confused and frustrated and decided to shoot in auto until I could attend a few of the free classes that came with my camera.

Guess what? Being a busy mom, those classes never happened. Even though they were free and only minutes away from my home. I never could find the time to make it happen. I eventually had a friend, who is a professional photographer, and happened to be hanging out at our house teach me the basics (thanks Dirk).

Although I learned enough to get out of auto, I can't tell you how many times I've wished I had more knowledge about what I was doing and how to fix everything that bugged me with my pictures. That is why I was so excited to get Katie Even's ebook "The Key to Taking Pictures like a Professional Photographer." When I opened it in an email, I started reading it immediately and couldn't stop reading until I had read the whole thing. When I finished I wanted to run out and try some of the tips and techniques, unfortunately it was well after midnight.

I love that is was something I could read after my kids were in bed, no scheduling needed.

I love that I can re-read it any time I want. 


I love the way it is easy to read and step-by-step. 

Seriously I can't wait to re-read it this summer and start practicing to get the most out of my camera.

Do you want to start taking pictures like Katie Evans?


You can order her ebook HERE
(enter the code SECOND for $2 off for the next two weeks)


You can get photography tips on Katie's Blog HERE


You can attend one of her workshops found HERE.
(she recently added the workshop to coincide with the ebook. It's a great option for those who are more of a visual learner.)

I don't have a blog yet, because I know how important it is to have great photos, and my photography skills are pretty weak. I'd love to learn more, and the flexibility of an e-book would help me to learn when I had time to practice. And then, maybe I could officially jump into blogland...
