Photo Backdrop Secrets - DIY! (On Target Photo Training Book 12) - Dan Eitreim

Photo Backdrop Secrets - DIY!  
Have read many other booklets by the author and have not only learned new things but found them interesting.
Free bonus books linked in this book.
Lots of techniques are discussed and what each will produce in the way of the photo.
Lots of photos so you can see for yourself the differences. So much information about lights be sure to re read this book a few times.
Love the exercises along the way to try for yourself and how to do them and the results.

Artist Sarah Sculley – IndieLove Magazine Article

 

NYT bestselling Author Nashoda Rose Interview with IndieLove Magazine

 

When was it that you decided that being an artist was your calling?

 

Yesterday. True!

 

I graduated from the Queensland College of Art in 2002 as one of many fresh-faced graphic designers. As the years went on, the briefs came in, the changes, and changes, and late nights, and more changes, and the all-nighters, more changes and then having my creative ideas smooshed,

 

I decided that maybe being a graphic designer was a bit soul destroying. So I painted and created as an outlet. I showed my work when I lived in China and had sell-out shows. When I moved home to Brisbane I thought I had to become a grown-up. Buy a house, settle down, procreate - all those picket-fence, 2.5 kids ideals. Silly me. I worked my tail off as a designer for a company that ended up making me redundant, one week before I was due back from maternity leave. It was an amazing blessing. It gave me the time, creativity and freedom to put everything I had into a solo show at Jugglers earlier this year. In my eyes, it was a massive success. I am entirely proud.

 

Since that show I’ve had so many opportunities become available for me to truly do what I believe is my calling - art. Yesterday was the first spare second I’ve had to sit down and think ‘oh my, everything is falling into place. I’m entirely happy, grateful and I feel like the real me. The universe is working with me and right here and now is where I am meant to be.’ This is that happiness that everyone has been talking about! Huh!

Essential Oils for a Clean and Healthy Home
Essential Oils for a Clean and Healthy Home: 200+ Amazing Household Uses for Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint Oil, Lavender Oil, and More - Kasey Schwartz

I bought this on a whim when I saw the cover; I've always been interested in using the inherent properties of plants to do things that we normally rely on chemicals to do.  

 

This was exactly what I'd hoped it would be and exactly what it says it is in the title: recipes for using essential oils and other natural, easily attainable ingredients to accomplish... just about everything.  I'm not ready to tackle making my own dishwasher tablets (yet) but I am totally going to try making my own rinse aid.  The recipe for deterring spiders is #1 on the list (they love to make webs in my window screens and on my clothes line) and I'm keen to try the bathroom grout cleaner, along with a number of others.

 

While I haven't tried any yet (which is why I stuck with 4 stars), I flipped through and read through all the recipes and they all look very simple and use a minimum of ingredients.  The oils are pricey, but they're measured out in drops and most of the recipes seem to rely on tea tree and lemon oil; I'm pretty sure just having these two oils on-hand will cover a lot of the stuff in this book.  My only complaint thus far: the author occasionally suggests alternative oils to use in the recipes, but I'd have liked more of this; I'm not particularly a fan of the lemon scent, for example, and I'd like to know what other oils would work as well but also suit my personal tastes.

 

I'll be oil shopping this weekend, and I'm thinking I'll order a copy for my BF as a surprise; if this kind of thing interests you, I'd definitely recommend taking a look.
