New e-book on working with shadows and light in photography

Shadows and be a great asset to a photograph or they can be a major hindrance as well. And of course, the lighting situation plays a role as well.

The new e-book “Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows” is all about helping photography enthusiasts work with this natural and unavoidable condition.

My latest e-book “Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows”

During March, I completed my latest effort in e-literature and am excited to share it with you.

Just like my other e-book from 2011, “Making Beautiful Photography,” this one is something of a how-to guide when it comes to the art of photography.

The new work is called “Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows” and is available now. Among other things, it focuses on the use of light and how it pertains to the issue of shadows, both good and bad, within a given image. There are also tips and tricks on how to make the most of soft shadows while doing your best to avoid the harsh and unflattering ones.

A conversation with author Christina Jeter

Christina Jeter, the author of the e-book “Celebrate Being You,” discusses her work with Creative Dreamers.

This book is a celebration of the diversity of the world and how it helps us thrive, in doing so, it should always be celebrated and never depreciated!!

CD: What made you decide to write this book?

Christina: Overcoming the troubles of my childhood and adolescents made me write this book. I wanted to show the greatness in a child and how it should be nurtured not demolished by an adult!

CD: How long did it take you to write it, from idea to completed project?

Christina: It took me about 3 years to put the idea together. The reason being is because I just came into being informed about the history of the people I used in it.

CD: So it took a lot of research?

Christina: Yes, I read the books about them (people in the book), talked to the authors, visited museums and other historical land marks. I prayed and felt I talked to them spiritually.

CD: What was the most challenging thing about writing it?

Christina: Making sure it focused on shaming the attacker (bully) instead of shaming the victim of bullying! I wanted to show how you can overcome with words and knowledge, but also be able to physically protect yourself from injustice.

CD: How about the most rewarding part?

Christina: The most rewarding part was bringing it to life and completing it. I sent it out to people before I published it and got great reviews. I hope to one day do some readings and signings at various Barnes and Noble stores and maybe even make it into a picture book, cartoon, TV series, etc!!!

CD: If there was one thing you would hope your readers take away for reading it, what would that be?

Christina: Never be ashamed about who you are! GOD doesn’t make mistakes. We all contribute to the beauty of the world. We are all super heroes. Everyone – please keep inspiring inspiration.

Results (or more accurately non-results) of the first week of our photo contest

Much to my surprise…

and a little to my dismay as well, there where no entries into the first week of the Creative Dreamers Photo Contest. This being the case, there is obviously no winner to announce.

I’m hoping things will chance this week with the theme of the contest being “Nature and Wildlife.”

If you’re so inclined, please enter for your chance to win the Deluxe version of my E-Book “Making Beautiful Photography: A Guide for the Novice and the Enthusiast” which even comes with several awesome video tutorials.
