A little bit of desire makes a world of difference in taking better pictures.
Actually, a little bit of desire and a couple of new tricks make a world of difference in taking better pictures.
All new parents have the desire to take great pictures of their baby, right? I know I did.
I also know that I was supremely frustrated by the fact that the pictures of my new baby were washed out or blurry or boring. I had this amazingly gorgeous baby, and I wanted the photos of her to be amazingly gorgeous, too.
For the most part, they weren't. I took a lot of pictures, and I got lucky a couple of times.
I wish I'd had Nick Kelsh's “How to Photograph Your Baby” back then. Nick talks about details and close ups. I liked Nick, and I wanted to hear what he had to say.
How to Photograph Your Baby has a friendly and conversational style, and watching the video is not all that different from having Nick sitting in your living room, giving you gentle instructions.
Not that I know what it's like to have Nick Kelsh in my living room giving me instructions. I'm just imagining.
The DVD won't overwhelm you with complicated terms. Nick Kelsh won't tell you that your point-and-shoot digital camera isn't good enough. He won't bore you with too much information.
Nick's DVD will give you pointers that you can use today. He will tell you how to use the camera that you already have to take pictures good enough to frame. He will explain the three basic elements of good photography – lighting, perspective, and equipment – and show you how to put them to work to improve your photos.
And, if you follow his instructions, I know you're pictures are going to get better.
I can't wait to see them!
