Hi! My husband, Steve, just published his first book and it was released last month by Quarry Books! But with all the goings-on of Summer Art Camp and Wes heading off to college, we decided to celebrate the publication this month instead. 

We’re giving away two copies each day (one from this blog, and one from my facebook page). Leave comments in both places each day for a chance to win a signed copy of “Creative Photography Lab: 52 Fun Exercises for Developing Self Expression with Your Camera.

“The introduction alone was worth the price of the book.”

This series of 10 images was taken in Savannah, GA last week when I was on a job. I gave myself the assignment to take 10 images in 10 minutes.

This is similar to the first exercise in “Creative Photography Lab,” called “Smart Phone 3/30.” Click the image below to enlarge:


If you have some time today, try it! (and post your images on the Creative Photography Lab flickr site, here.)
