    My son, THE photographer, sent me this book "How to Photograph Your Life" by Nick Kelsh and it is totally awesome! It's so easy to use - has great~great helpful tips and hints that even this lay-woman can use. It's tweeking my snapshots with much better results. I highly recommend it. A wonderful find!

    This sounds just like the book I NEED!! I was curious about this book so I googled it and this is the write up that I found, and it does sound like it would be very helpful....

    Nick Kelsh's winning formula for creating the consistently top-ranking titles in his category? Simply put, Kelsh can teach anyone--with any kind of camera--to take great pictures, by showing how he takes his own great pictures. Kelsh presents more than 40 new picture-taking scenarios--the types that fill everyone's photo albums. Whether capturing milestones such as graduations or weddings, or the unexpected occurrence, such as a beautiful sunset or a pet in a funny pose, Kelsh's readers will learn to make images they can be proud of. Each spread addresses one photo idea, with simple techniques and tips explained using a "predictable amateur photo" compared to the same image improved by professional wisdom. A special 8-page gatefold demonstrates "how to photograph a vacation." These are the photo-ops of our daily lives and, mundane or special, they represent what everyone really wants to know: how to take a picture of a group of friends, how to photograph a private moment, and even how to take a good picture of something you want to sell on eBay. Special attention is paid to the growing number of people working with point-and-shoot digital cameras. Kelsh has photographed the entire book with one and he includes advice on how to use it as well as image storage for the digital family album. You've photographed Baby and Family: It's time for the rest of your life in How to Photograph Your Life.

    Scrappysam,

    You are going to make me buy another book, if you keep this up! I am going to see if our library has this book. If it is as good as you say it is, I may have to visit Amazon.com again! I will just tell my hubby that you made me do it!

    I take full and total blame -- but -- you wouldn't be disappointed. It really is a good book to have.

    So the Sibling 'how-to' book shows how to take bunny-earred photos and various tongue positions for funny faces, heh? Hmmmm, I think that my bro and sisses can manage just fine on their own!!!...We need no book to help enhance our family photos!!!!!
