Before I became a photographer I was a writer. I’ve always loved writing. I actually feel much more comfortable writing than speaking. It’s an emotional outlet for me. I can write things that I’d never say in real life. I can be me and not feel bad about it.
One of my goals this year is to write more. About me, about my family, about motherhood and photography. I’ve also been toying around with the idea of putting together a series of e-booklets. I don’t think I can commit to a full length book and let’s face it, there are a ton of books about photography out there. Instead, I wanted to write a series as inspiration for those of you who are interested in taking better pictures. I’ve learned so much over the past 4 years and I want to share it with you.
This first e-booklet is about shooting indoors. Now that the cold winter months are upon us, we’re forced to shoot indoors more often. Sometimes it can be tricky, especially if you’re still getting used to that shiny new camera you got for Christmas. “Inspire Me: Your Guide to Shooting Indoors,” includes information on how to find the best light, different types of light, and tips for using your flash.
Since this is my first time publishing an e-booklet, I’d love to hear your feedback. I am planning a few more titles in the Inspire Me series including tips for shooting outdoors, how to get more creative with your camera, and making the switch to manual. What do you want to know about photography?
