First of all, I adore the title of this book! Who wouldn’t want to be super awesome at what they love? I am definitely not a professional photographer by any means. I am not looking to become one either, but I am always looking for ways to improve my hobby.
The reason I want to improve is so I can continue to record our family’s history. I love to scrapbook and have come to a point where I want to improve my photography skills.
This wonderful title has helped me look at things with some new perspective. When my girls were little, I did a good job of getting on their level, but beyond that, I really didn’t have much change in how I took pictures. Recently I have been more mindful of my position in addition to the camera. This book definitely gave me the insights I was looking for!
The photo challenges are much like taking a class! Once a new concept is introduced, a new challenge is given to the reader. Here are a few of the photos I have taken after reading this title. Some are with my phone and others with my camera.
Used the room lighting creatively
Getting up close to my subject
Capturing light sources
Patience with animal photography!
Create a scene! (Rose did this one!)
This is my favorite!
With this last photo I sat for over an hour under a tree in our front yard and patient waited, taking picture after picture until I finally captured this!
If you are looking for a way to casually improve your photography with ease, check this out!
