It’s Christmas. The kids are home from school, the family is together and our thoughts are on letting go and having fun. It’s the silly season as we say in Australia. I wasn’t going to review another weight loss solution or online money making program. I wanted to review something that was fun and something I was interested in. Photography for me is relaxing and fun and I hoped others feel that same way too.
How many of you got a camera for Christmas? OK… How many of you love photography? Now, how many are envious of other photographer’s work and wish you can create pictures like they can? How many of you aren’t very good at Photoshop but love to learn more? And how many, like me, are old school and were taught to do everything in camera not on a computer? I thought so, well if you answered yes to any one of these questions I want to tell you about an e-Book you’ll love. It’s the Trick Photography and Special Effects e-Book. It teaches, it inspires and it is a lot of fun this Christmas holidays.
