Photography Ebook Giveaway and Coupon!!!!!! {CLOSED}

Oh….I am just super excited about this giveaway! I bought my dslr camera about a year or so ago and have been on a constant journey of learning about it. The camera is amazing, but I still have so much to figure out! When Katie of Katie Evans Photography sent me a copy of her book The Key To Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer I was ecstatic. I opened it up and devoured it. There is so much good information in it!


Some things I had already learned here and there, but there is a ton of tips, tricks, and more that I had never heard of or were explained in a way that I could really understand them. Just check out the table of contents:

3 Table of Contents 1

Table of Contents 2

Table of Contents 3

What I like most of all is that it is all in one place. I can print this out and use it like a textbook until I get these things down. I can write notes in it too and there are tons of visual examples.

Chap 1 Page 35

Here is why Katie took on the challenge of writing this e book:

“In the past few years I have had many family members, friends and acquaintances buy digital slr cameras. It just seems like these days everyone has one! People are getting these cameras but are still unsure how to get professional looking pictures out of it. I’ve noticed many people just keep their settings on “auto” and I think what a waste! Here they have this amazing camera capable of taking amazing pictures but they just don’t quite know how to get there. And the truth is, it’s really not that complicated! That’s what spurred me to write this book. I go over everything a person would need to know to take the beautiful professional looking pictures they desire. It was important for me to make it all simple and easy to understand so that anyone could be succussful by reading this book. I’m a visual learner so I made sure to include lots of pictures and examples.

What I truly love about photography, is the ability to capture the story of my own family. I treasure the pictures that I have of my kids, our interactions together, and their sweet personalities. It’s so important to me to be able to document their lives (and our life), in this way. I want to offer all the information I have in my repertoire so that others can create an album of treasured memories to last a lifetime.”

Something good????? Is the amazing price! It is $16.95 normally, but she is offering all of you a coupon for $2 off for the next two weeks! (Use code HAPPY when checking out).
