This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank You to all that entered!
I know I have been MIA for the last couple days. I have a good excuse, really I do. I have been reading.
I have followed Katie Evans and her blog for quite sometime. I was more excited than I can say when I won her book! I have been reading as much as I could since then.
Not only is her book beautiful, it is the most uncomplicated easy to follow photography book I have ever read.
I caught myself nodding along completely engrossed in the book. Her personality shines though, almost like you have someone there talking to you.
I truly feel this is a book I will turn to over and over again. She covers all the basics from choosing what equipment to use, to using natural lighting, to editing your photo. And of course, all of the steps in between.
Already, I have seen improvement in my photos! I am happy to say that my camera is off the automatic setting. That's right, I am shooting in manual. Which is a big deal for me. I have had my camera close to a year and I was still using the automatic settings. There was a time I didn't think I would ever turn past the automatic settings. I read the manual , and other blogs and books. For what ever reason they didn't click with me. I now feel confident in switching my shutter speed, and know the different modes. While I still need tons of practice I am positive that from what I learned in Katie's book I will continue to get better.
In short I LOVED the book!
