Today’s blog link party is sponsored by Rebecca Cooper.
I am excited to have Rebecca Cooper back on Somewhat Simple today- she will always be one of my most-favorite contributors- I loved the content she published here!
Rebecca is SUPER talented and she shares her ideas and inspiration on her blog, Simple As That. She is a professional photographer and mother of four children who makes her home in Alberta, Canada. She is the author of two previous photography eBooks, 40 Top Tips for Better Photos and Don’t Say Cheese!, and has now has published her third, titled Real. Life. Photography.
Rebecca believes strongly in encouraging women to take more photos of everyday moments. She spent over a year carefully assembling her best tips and tricks, gathering 127 real-life photos, and writing hundreds of useful photography tips. Her goal is to inspire women everywhere to pick up their cameras more often and to be happier with the photos they take.
“Photographing real life isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s a lot harder than taking family portraits in a well-lit studio or outdoors at the perfect time of day. Real life passes quickly. It doesn’t wait for you to pull out your camera. It doesn’t wait for ideal lighting conditions. And it doesn’t wait for your house to be spotless. But I promise that capturing everyday moments is worth the extra effort. Capturing life as it happens helps me see things differently. Boring becomes beautiful. Ordinary becomes extraordinary. Life can get so busy and crowded with distractions that it’s easy to forget what matters most. Pausing to take photos along the way helps me slow down and just enjoy my life exactly as it is.” —Rebecca Cooper
