I listened, I played, I won…

I listened…

 Last week I got this wonderful, red jawbone speaker for my Birthday (Thanks Ma!). I have been carrying it around the house with me ever since, listening to podcasts. I am a podcast junkie. One of my current favorites is Art and Soul Radio with Lesley Riley. Last Friday, while piddling around the house, cleaning, I listened to Susan Tuttle and Christy Hydeck talk about all kinds of great things including their new book, Photo Craft. I knew I had to get a copy when Susan talked about a technique in the book on how to make Polaroids without breaking the bank to buy Polaroid film. As they talked, I pulled out my phone finding them on Instagram and searching their ‘can’t live without’ apps.

I played…

One of the most inspiring techniques I learned from Susan and Christy was the idea of using more than one app to edit photos on my phone (and then even uploading them to my computer for further editing in Photoshop). I had always thought it was one photo, one app. Or just use Hipstamatic, which I LOVE, but I’m less in control of the results and have to shoot the same thing over and over to get the results I’m looking for. That night, I crawled into bed, took a picture of the view from my pillow and played with a couple of my newly purchased apps.
 I won…
The next day I saw that Lesley was giving away a copy of Photo Craft. Ooh, just look at that yummy cover! I knew i had to get me one. So I submitted my comment and I won! My beautiful copy of Photo Craft arrived in the mail yesterday! I can’t wait to curl up this weekend and absorb me some yummy photography. 
I can’t thank you enough Lesley. You are a truly generous soul.
XO
