As a blogger, I spend quite a bit of time looking at other blogs. Again and again, the ones I am drawn to are the ones with the great pictures!

A couple months ago, I wrote all about my passion on the subject, and included some tips (as well as photos to illustrate my points) on how to improve your own photography. You can check it out by clicking here. Just knowing how to implement a couple of things can make a huge difference in how your images turn out.

Between having three kids and taking pictures for this blog, my camera gets a ton of use. Last year I took a workshop from my dear friend – and amazing photographer – Noemi Hedrick to learn how to take things even further. Noemi’s a great teacher, and manages to break down the ins and outs of how to produce a great photo in a way that makes sense.

Noemi hard at work.

Noemi offers workshops throughout the year for moms, bloggers, and aspiring professional photographers alike. She normally charges $275-350 for these events, and they are worth it! If you’re in the Twin Cities area, I highly recommend you take her class.

Knowing that not everybody is a) local, and b) able to find time to take a course, Noemi is now offering her workshop via a PDF – and it’s a steal at only $20! I love a good bargain, and getting a few hundred dollars off sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me. And the deal keeps getting sweeter, because for Wild Ruffle readers, Noemi is generously offering a 15% discount (click here to buy it now).

In addition to this, she’s also giving away a PDF to one lucky Wild Ruffle reader! Trust me, whether you’re looking to improve your blog, take pictures of your family, or just enjoy playing with your camera, having this information will be incredible for you.

  1. I’m in. I need all the help I can get. Bad photography runs in my family. I swear, my mom and I threw out tons of out of focus shots from the 1970s, including some classics with missing heads. LOL

    I “like” Wild Ruffle on FB.
