SkipTown GIVEAWAY!

Being the photography nerd I am, I normally get asked one of these three questions: what camera do I recommend, what software do I use for post processing and what book/website can I recommend for learning the ins and outs of photography. The first two questions are almost no brainers, but I always stumbled when it got to book recommendations. It was not even a year ago that I started to unleash the photography enthusiast in me and with almost ZERO technical knowledge I was also desperate to find the right resources. I was looking for a book which explains the basic technics (without going into too much details) and gives practical advise on how to take better photographs. When I read the Skip Town Photography Field Guide I felt like I found the book I´ve been looking for and wish I had found a year ago! This no fuss e-book shows you how to think and shoot like a pro, explains the basics of photography and helps the everyday travelers take better pictures with less equipment. Mine has now earned a permanent place in my carry on! ;)

Wanna hear the best part? Now we´re giving away not one, not two but FIVE field guides to five lucky Gypsy*Diaries readers! Who wants to take better pictures? :)

hiii I saw your post and i decided to buy the field guide in the web, but when they sent me the link to download the guide it doesn´t work. Maybe you can contact them and help me solving my problem, i have e mailed them but i haven´t receive any response. I am form peru and I can´t do anything from here... So as I saw this advertisement here maybe you know them and can contact them for me... so maybe they can answer me or contact me...
Thnks!!!
