Your Family in Pictures by Me Ra Koh
Family pictures!! Don't we all love taking pictures of our families? Have you ever looked at someone else's photos of their families and thought "How did they get such great pictures?"
This book by Me Ra Koh is written to enable moms (and others!) to take gorgeous artistic photos with whatever photo equipment they have available.
First of all, this is a beautiful book, filled with inspiring pictures of families and kids. Not only are they great pictures, but there are "recipes" for how to take that type of picture for yourself! The author is all about empowering moms (people) to take gorgeous pictures of their families. The directions are not difficult to understand and it does not require you to purchase pricey equipment -- information on how to use the equipment you already have; even instructions on how to use your smartphone to take beautiful photos!
I really appreciate this book -- it has given me lots of ideas and inspiration of how to take special pictures :) My daughter has also read the book and has started trying out some of the different techniques introduced. There are suggestions of when are good times to capture photos and also ideas for getting cooperation of the family when picture-taking might take a bit longer than they would wish :)
Obviously the title lets you know that this book is primarily geared toward taking pictures of your family. The author (Me Ra Koh) also has other publications about photographing different subjects. I will be looking for these for sure :)
I would definitely recommend this book. It is a very interesting and inspiring read with ideas that are easy to try right now!
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
