Author Bio:
I’m Dan Eitreim and I worked as a professional photographer running my own photo studio for over 20 years. I’ve never apprenticed or worked for any other photographers. Because of this, I’ve had to learn and develop my photography skills on my own.

My first attempts were dismal to say the least…so I studied, practiced and developed my photo skills and along the way I not only learned how to put the “wow” into my photos, but I’ve also learned how to teach others to do the same!

To that end I’ve created a 23 volume series of photo training lessons that I’ve titled: “On Target Photo Training”. Your photos WILL improve… guaranteed!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Whenever there is a major disaster like a fire, earthquake, hurricane and so on… the reporters covering the event always track down a number of people who have lost everything and ask an inane question like; “How does it feel to lose everything?”

What does the victim say? Almost EVERY TIME the first thing they say is something like; “We lost all of our family photos”!

Family photos ARE our most prized possessions, but although we have the “photo bug”, too many of us have no idea how to get truly beautiful images.

This book was written to help the greenest of newbies in photography through to the oldest pros get better photos.

Something they created and can be proud of.

If you find yourself worried about all of the junk that is tainting the American food supply, then you might want to consider starting your own garden. Yet, if you use tap water and fertilizers you buy from the store to tend to that garden, you just might be tainting the produce you are growing. One of the best ways to have a garden and avoid these problems is to garden off the grid. This book will explain what that means and how you can effectively do it, so you can enjoy the fruits of your labors without any worry about additional costs, environmental impact or contaminants for your family.

Introduction: What Is Gardening Off the Grid?

Gardening off the grid is a fairly simple concept. In fact, it involves gardening techniques that were common before the advent of electricity and running water. Basically, when you garden this way, you garden with just what Nature provides: rainwater and sunlight. No electricity, no tap water and no unnatural additions to the soil. Simply good old natural provisions.

We all want to include emotion in our photographs – it’s what separates the “snapshooter” from the artist!

Color is one of – if not THE most important tool we can use to insert emotion. But few of us really know how. Once you’ve read through this lesson (it’s fast and easy) you will never think of color the same again!

For example… we all know that red is a good accent to attract attention. It can also indicate heat, passion or even stop! But there is more, a lot more.

Learn how Baboon Butts affect the way we look at the color red!

Depending on the shade of red used it could elicit emotions like:

Light red – represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love.
Pink – signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
Dark red – is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath.
Reddish-brown is associated with harvest and fall.

Have you ever wondered about all these “Lucky” people you hear about always winning sweepstakes and contests? What are the secrets to what they did that made them more successful at winning than everybody else? I know I wondered about this, and I was going to figure out how to be a winner myself!

I set about learning all I could about entering sweeps and contests, and what it took to become a winner! I was determined to be a big winner myself! I won many, many small contests, but also some big ones.

Here’s a little sampling of how I did it:

1) Don’t go out there and search out the contests for yourself. There are places you can go that have 1000′s of contests listed for FREE in one big database.

2) There is special software that is also FREE that you can download that will cut your entering time by over half. You will be able to enter tons more sweepstakes and be on your way to winning!

3) There are good, better and best sweepstakes to enter, and ones just to steer clear of.

4) Updated to include all the newest and hottest social media sweepstakes

You will also hear some true confessions about what happened to me while I was striving to be a winner. I want to help you avoid the same fate.

You can be a multiple sweepstakes winner, and I want to help you be a successful. At the end of the day, if you follow my little tips and tricks, you will find yourself on a winning path in no time at all and your e-mail inbox flooded with subject lines of:

“You are a Winner!”

Penelope is a baby boomer, computer geek and adventurous, small town gal who loves the tropical sun and sand, salty ocean breezes, colorful organic produce, fuzzy dwarf bunnies, and hummingbirds. She loves to write and has written several non-fiction books, which are available now. Penelope’s romantic fiction will soon be available in 2013.

She has also become passionate about healthy living and sharing what she has learned with other women–especially those who are desperately searching for answers to feeling good, looking great, and living life with zest.
