What the heck is an ebook?

An ebook is a book that’s supplied digitally and read on your digital devices like iPhones, iPads, computers and Kindles. The perks of reading ebooks is that they’re on devices that you'd normally bring around with you anyway so there’s no need to put one more thing into your already heavy bags. AND they are environmentally friendly! (You tree lover, you!)


How is the book structured?

There are four distinct parts:

1.The technical parts of getting out of AUTO mode and using your camera’s full and amazing capabilities.

2. Lighting.

3. Working with people (especially kids).

4. Printing/organizing your photos (so they don’t just lay on your computer until one day it crashes and you lose all your memories. {Please touch wood!!}).


What kind of camera and equipment do you need?

To take advantage of the first chapter on shooting out of auto mode, you’ll need a camera where you can change to manual settings. Most cameras can do this, any camera with interchangeable lenses can definitely do this! If you’re not interested in that part anyway, the lighting and working with people sections apply to any camera (even iPhone!).


What am I going to get from this book?

Confidence to take your photos to the next level, serenity knowing that you won’t be missing out on your kid’s childhood, and LOTS of extra likes and comments on your social media accounts because of your gorgeous photos. Other possible side effects: increased happiness, never ever saying cheese again as a photo prompt, impressing house-guests on your fabulous family art hanging in the house, and your kids starting to LOVE taking photos.
