My Visual Vacation, and a Giveaway

My Visual Vacation, and a Giveaway

Remember how I told you I wanted to learn to use my iPhone camera before my family vacation? Well, I did–and we’re back! I spent the last week at the beach with my family, and I took tons of pictures using the tips and apps I learned about in the book.

Here’s what my family vacation looked like:

Like mother, like daughters
How little boys play on the beach
Hey there, Mr. Crab
Sunset on the bay
Why I couldn’t sleep Thursday night

(I shared some of these photos last week on instagram. My user name is annebogel.)

After I told you about the iPhone Photography ebook last week, I was offered the opportunity to give away a copy to one lucky reader. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what you take the most pictures of.

You can buy the iPhone photography book here for the special introductory price of $5. Monday morning it will begin selling for the regular price of $9.97. The book has lots of tips and tricks that apply to any smart phone camera, but many of the recommended apps are only available for iPhone.

(Don’t worry: if you buy the book and then win the giveaway, I’ll refund your $5. Just email me your receipt at modern mrs darcy (at) gmail (dot) com.)

Giveaway ends Sunday midnight EST.

This promotion is open until Sunday, July 29, at 12:00 pm EST and is limited to those 18 years or older. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified via email. Please respond within 48 hours to claim your prize. This post will be updated with the beginning of the winner’s email addresses. This post contains my affiliate links. I bought my own copy of the iPhone photography ebook, but Allison Worthington Media is providing the giveaway copy.

    Crazily, I take the most pictures of pictures! The iPhone is so easy to click, upload and then use, to have photos to use on my blog … and I have hundreds of old and not-so-old photos which I want to use. So I ‘retake’ them with the iPhone and then have them ready to use. Easier (for me) than scanning. Probably mad to take photos of photos!! Have just done our wedding photos – from 35 years ago. Great to have them on the iPhone AND on the laptop. Happy memories!

    • Penelope — I watched my MIL do that and I was shocked at how well it worked and how simple it was for her. Great tip.

      Anne — AWESOME PICS!!! I’m excited about seeing more of your own images on MMD. 🙂

    The majority of my pictures are things I see walking around New York City. My last picture was two dog walkers walking about ten dogs. It was a dog, day afternoon.

  3. Brenna says:

    Currently I take pictures of my family, but since we are just blocks away from Chicago’s Little India, I want to start taking photos there!!

  4. I use my iPhone camera for allll of my pics! I took a slew of photos on our trip to Europe, (and one of those pics actually won a pinterest foto competition to my shock and delight!). but Id say I take pics the most of my dog & beautiful moments of my daily life that I want to capture for inspiration! Love your blog! Can’t wait to read this ebook!!

    I definitely take more pics of Libby than anything – although she can be a bit camera shy at times, I love capturing memories with her! I was recently at a baseball game with my boyfriend and our 2 kids and another couple and their 2 kids and I was loving it when my girlfriend said that she thought we were “the biggest picture taking people ever,” as we took turns posing for one silly photo after another. But to me there’s never anything like being able to go through old photos and re-live the fun times!

  6. Margaret says:

    My photos are mostly of my family. I have three kids who are always doing something silly or sweet that I never want to forget

  7. Heather says:

    I take lots of pictures of my youngest son who is quite the ham and very unpredictable. However, I really rely on my iPhone for capturing the moment when we’re driving around town in our Central Asian city. For example, we rarely see camels in town, but by grabbing my phone and rolling down the truck window, I was able to capture some nomads bringing their camels through town. Snapping pictures with the iPhone is much less obtrusive than pulling out a camera – which is often frowned upon in our conservative surroundings.

  8. Adrienne says:

    I take most pictures of my kids, of course. But, food comes in a close second! I’d live to learn how to use my iPhone to the fullest.

  9. Sara-Marie K. says:

    I take a lot of pictures of my friends and our adventures. one thing that’s great about the iPhone camera is that it’s soooo convenient and they still print with pretty great quality.
