I’m breaking status quo here on Sprik Space to share something with all of you that I’m head over heels excited about… and I’m running a GIVEAWAY!
Eighteen years ago, I was a senior in high school and she was a freshman… little did I know, Kristen Duke had some mad photo skills brewing and would later turn into an amazing photographer!
Of course, at this point in my life I would love to get my little family professionally photographed… by Kristen. Sadly, she’s in Austin, and I’m in Chicago. I haven’t been back to Texas since the year that photo was taken (layovers don’t count), and when I missed her recent workshop in Arizona by a mere 4 hours, I was majorly bummed.
So, for now, I’ll just have to make do by trying to better my own photo-taking skills. Let’s be honest, for pictures worth keeping and especially framing, auto settings on any camera just don’t cut it, and standard flash usage ruins great photos. I’ve studied a little bit online, but it’s more than a bit overwhelming for a newbie like myself. There’s just way too much information out there, and I don’t really know where to begin.
Enter wonderful Kristen Duke. :)
Kristen has recently updated her popular “Say NO to Auto” e-book, and I absolutely love it! You don’t have to own a DSLR camera to benefit from her helpful tips. I downloaded her revised e-book a little while ago, and it’s already helping me to understand the manual settings on my little point-and-shoot camera. That’s because she’s broken it down to 3 steps – just the basics you need to learn to achieve better-looking photos, no matter what type of camera you own. This easy-to-understand e-book is just 17 mini-pages or 4 regular-size pages, that you can print yourself or peruse on your computer. And, guess what – Kristen has graciously offered a copy of her handy dandy e-book to one of my readers!
What you’ll win: A copy of Kristen Duke Photography’s “Say NO to Auto” e-book of your very own!
