brown paper packages: {announcement...}

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


I am so excited to make this announcement, I can hardly stand it!

If you're like me, you have a camera, but don't know much about all the functions, buttons, and getting out of auto mode. I love the thought of taking really good pictures, and have wanted to learn more about photography for a really long time. I know what I like, and how I want pictures to look, I just need the information to help me get there.

Well, not only is my opportunity here, but so is yours! If you're a blogger, wanting to bring the level of your pictures up, or if you'd like to improve the quality of the pictures of your family and friends, listen up!

Lei Rogers is not only the girl behind My Many Colored Days (her fabulous craft blog), but also an extremely talented photographer. (You have to go check out her portfolio...) I am lucky enough to call her a friend--we've known each other for a long time--and I am extra excited to have her here.


I am thrilled to announce that she will be posting a monthly photography series here, on brown paper packages, addressing everything from lighting, to props, to angles and composition, and everything else in between. Whether you have a point & shoot, or a DSLR, she's going to guide us through the things you've always wanted to know about your camera, and capturing those moments we never want to forget.

And guess what!? She starts tomorrow!! The first Wednesday of each month she'll be here, and you REALLY don't want to miss it.

If you have any questions you'd like to ask Lei, please contact her at

We'll see you tomorrow!

This is great! I just got my first DSLR, the Canon rebel T1i. I've been playing with it, but don't know half of what I can really do with it! I know nothing of aperture and what-not.

That is awesome! I will be sure to check for these frequently and try them out on my kiddo. I love taking pictures but have no clue how to get some of those prop shots they do so well!
