Dear Idea Room readers,
It is with heavy heart that I must bid farewell to my regular photography tips and techniques series on here. I LOVE Amy and her blog…it is what got me all excited about being crafty a year and a half ago…but, I have had to slow down a bit from my fast forward mode, and this was the first thing that I thought of to do that. Even though its only twice a month, I spend many hours on each post. I would still love to come back occasionally, so let Amy know if you have a specific photography need!
My own blog has taken a life of its own as I post about my sessions, workshops, and my e-book. I will post occasional tips and tricks over there. You can also join me on facebook where I share full size landscape images once a week on Facebook Freebie Friday. As a farewell, I wanted to offer my favorite Idea Room readers a big discount on my e-book if you have not purchased it yet, or have been thinking of purchasing it for a friend. On my site, for just 24 hours, it will be available for half off–$5. Discount paypal button will be in my footer on the right at the very bottom of my site, it says Idea Room discount, $5.
Don’t forget about the master list that I made a few months ago with the summary of all of my posts here. I keep meaning to update it, but click for Past Photography Tips with Kristen Duke here to see the list. Don’t cry, friends, it will all be o.k. ;) Amy continues to have some of the best content on the web, I will still be checking in!
Photography is such a passion of mine, and I think it is so wonderful that so many people see value in a beautiful photography vs. just snapshot. It IS attainable. You can have beautiful portraits of your family. Be patient with yourself, and if you have questions…just google it…there is SO much out there on the web (maybe too much, it can be overwhelming). It has been such a joy for me to hear feedback from all of you that my simple explanations have been beneficial. I am not a book learner, so I did my best to explain things in the non-book-way! Now go keep documenting those unique moments in your families, enjoy the candid moments, and record the people you love in a way that will bring you back to this precious time later in life. It is important, and you will be thanked later!
