I just got my copy of The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos in the mail! Got an extra one too, for one of you. This is the book that I wish was out there when I first started blogging and selling my handmade goods. It would have made life so much easier. There are some wonderful tips in here that I'm going to be using in the future, especially the advice about lighting. Heidi Adnum, the author, does an incredible job of making the book beautiful and interesting while conveying useful technical information. I pretty much devoured the book in one sitting. It's a must-have for makers, bloggers, and sellers.
I feel so honored to be included in the book, and you can see a little section pictured above with an interview with me and some of my photos. The book is chock-full of photographs and advice from some of my favorite makers as well.
If you'd like a chance at a free copy of the book, please leave a comment on this post. What do you photograph most? Do you feel like there's an area you want to learn more about? I'll draw and announce a winner next Tuesday, Feb. 7. So check back here then!
