Capture The Moment Review

Unnamed 6

Every now and then I like to read books on photography.  Even though I am not a professional photographer, I do like to get good shots of my kids whenever I can, and when I read photography books I am more inspired to take pictures of the kids and try new things.

Capture The Moment is written by the CEO of Clickin Moms, Sarah Wilkerson.  Each chapter is on a different aspect of photography, and each page is filled with gorgeous photos accompanied by photography tips.  This book covers natural light, composition, story-telling, fine art, black and white, and low light photography.

I loved this book, and I think it has great inspiration to improve your photography, particularly portrait or lifestyle photography.  I loved all the tips, and though I already knew some of the information presented, I learned a lot of new things as well.  I especially liked the focus on how the photographer can change the mood of their photos by adjusting lighting, white balance, items that are within the frame, etc.

This book not only gave practical/technical tips, but it gave a lot of ideas for encouraging you to be creative and try new things with your photos.  I liked the challenges at the end of each chapter, ideas for activities to help you experiment with style.  I thought the tips and exercises would be helpful for beginners or for more experienced photographers.  You should probably have a DSLR camera to get the most out of this book, but if you just have a point-and-shoot- or phone camera and are looking for composition ideas, this book is full of them.

If you are a mom (like me) who just likes to play around with photographing your kids, this book is perfect to get you thinking outside the box!   Check it out!

Note: I received a copy of this book for free front he publisher in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
