The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer Review

What I truly love about photography, is the ability to capture the story of my own family. I treasure the pictures that I have of my kids, our interactions together, and their sweet personalities.  It’s so important to me to be able to document their lives (and our life), in this way. I want to offer all the information I have in my repertoire so that you, too, can create an album of treasured memories to last a lifetime. – Katie Evans

I am a huge scrapbooker. I love taking pics of the kids everyday. I have been taking a picture a day for two years now and I can honestly say, I still would love to take photography lessons. I take ok pictures & I love staging the kids for holidays & birthdays. That is when I get the best shots. My everyday pictures is what I need help with. I got a new Nikon D500 digital camera last year for Christmas and I still don’t know how to properly use all the settings. I stumbled onto Katie Evans blog through Ali Edwards, another awesome photographer/scrapbooker. I immediately fell in love with her shots of her kids. Here is one from her from this halloween, and here is one of mine:

Katie Evans has come out with the book, The Key To Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer: The Step By Step Guide To Understanding Your Camera and Taking Amazing Pictures. I received an ebook, which I was excited about and couldn’t wait to read it. The book is broken down into 7 chapters. The two chapters, I keep going back to are Exposures and Camera Settings. The things i need the most help with.

Overall this book is great! There are lots of pictures to help explain along the way. That is what I like to see, before and after pictures of what the author is talking about. I did try the milk carton trick by, cutting the handle off a milk carton to place over the flash to soften the picture. I can tell that the second picture is truer to the actual color.

    Biggest challenge would be all the buttons and setting on my camera that I have no clue what they are for. *smile*

    My biggest challenge is not getting good photos. I have a good camera so I know it must be something I’m doing wrong. This looks like a great book. hickenfam at hotmail dot com

    My biggest photography challenge is what I have in the background that seems to ruin the eye- for example, my daughter is 3 months and I have tried taking home “studio” pics by placing a cute sheet over the baby bouncer then sitting her in it. She is cute, but the background looks like I did exactly that- lumps in the sheet where I tried to prop it up behind her head…I guess hard to explain! I really like the light suggestion! Great!

    Small children, and manual settings are the most difficult for me. The book looks interesting and I’d love to win.
    However…..I won’t be doing 6 separate posts to do it in like the others….! 😉

    My biggest challenge is coming up with an interesting composition; I am rarely satisfied in this regard.

    Low lighting in my home (especially in the winter) is definitely a challenge.
