8 ways to improve your photography in one week
Lifestyle

Whenever I learn something new or want to dive deeper into something, I am easily overwhelmed by the amount of information out there. So much to learn and so little time. I get how busy your life is, I’m a SAHM of 3 little ones and my free time is limited. But that shouldn’t keep us from getting to learn new things.

This is one of the reasons why I wrote The Unexpected Everyday: A 30 day challenge to improve your photography and document your kids. I wanted to make learning photography easy and something you could do no matter how busy your life is.

In this FREE ebook, I teach you 8 actionable things you can do to improve your photography in a week no matter what camera you have. Whether you want to take better iPhone pictures or improve with your point and shoot this ebook is for you.

FREE ebook - 8 ways to improve your photography in one week no matter what camera you have via Click it Up a Notch

Just a few things you will learn:

  • Tip for finding the light in your house
  • My favorite way to add variety to your images
  • How to use your own images to improve
  • What to look for when studying someone else’s work.

I know I said earlier that this ebook is free, and though it doesn’t cost you any money, I would love it if you would share this page with 3 of your friends. They will thank you for helping them sign up and getting to snag a copy of the ebook.

      Hey Sharon,
      I spoke with the email company and it turns out so many fantastic people signed up so quickly they put a block on the confirmation emails to make sure I wasn’t spamming you guys ;) You should have received a confirmation email a few minutes ago. Please let me know if you did. Thanks!

  • April 1, 2014 at 10:23 AM

    Hello. I signed up. But i got no email to confirm the subscribtion

        • April 1, 2014 at 1:06 PM

          Hey Kristi!
          When did you sign up? They said they fixed it at around 11:45am EST time. Was it before that or is it happening again?

          • Kristi
            April 1, 2014 at 1:27 PM

            Just signed up about a half an hour ago….seems it might be happening again :(

            • April 1, 2014 at 3:26 PM

              Okay, they said they fixed it. Did you get it? Oh technology :/

                • April 2, 2014 at 11:31 AM

                  Can you try and sign up again? They said that should trigger another confirmation email to be sent. If that doesn’t work, let me know.

                    April 2, 2014 at 11:36 AM

    Hi Courtney
    Wow – what a great response to your course!
    I can see you are having a few email glitches and don’t want to add to your headaches, but I’ve seen reference to a free ebook on this site, but have not received it in my email. I’ve checked my spam folder and it’s not there.
    My confirmation email refers to a link, but it is not visible.
    Hope you get all these little things sorted out.
    Thanks,
    Deb

    Hi, Courtney,

    • August 18, 2015 at 3:29 PM

      Hey Kathryn, That is odd. It may take a few minutes to download depending on the speed of your internet. Also, make sure your computer is able to open and read PDFs. Please let me know if you continue to have issues.

I did not see that one come to my inbox and it won’t let me sign up for it. Is there anything I can do to get that?

    quite awhile ago I ordered and received another e-book and have been getting your up dates ever since.
    . 2 days ago I signed up to receive ” 8 ways to improve your photography”. I have not seen anything in my inbox or junk pile regarding the book. Is there a problem since I already receive your updates/newsletter?
