The Digital Photography Companion Giveaway
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Jeff and I were contacted a couple of weeks ago by O’Reilly Media, asking if we write book reviews, and whether we would like to look at a copy of this beginner-friendly book. It’s The Digital Photography Companion, by professional photographer and teacher Derrick Story (who incidentally is also a blogger over at The Digital Story). It’s been getting rave reviews on Amazon and I’m intrigued.
Anyway, we’ll be writing a review when we receive our copy, but in the meantime, we have two extra copies of the book up for grabs! O’Reilly is giving two Beyond Megapixels readers a copy each. To get a chance at winning a free copy, just leave a comment. You can tell us about how you got started in photography and/or suggest an article for us to write about. But really, since the winners will be selected at random (we’ll be using random.org to pick the two), you can even just say hi. This is open to all readers (that means you). You may only enter once. Comments are moderated so it might take a while for your comment to show.
If you don’t have a website, blog, or a Flickr account that you can sign your comment with, you can choose to leave your e-mail address in your comment in this format: yourusername AT yourmailprovider DOT com. Jeff and I will need some way to get in touch you if you win so we can get your shipping address. If we can’t reach you, your entry doesn’t count.
The raffle will close on Wednesday, August 20, 2008 at 11:59PM Eastern Daylight Time. We’ll announce the winners on August 21.
August 21 Update: Congratulations, Leah and Samantha!
Thanks to everyone who joined! It was so great hearing from you guys. We took note of your article suggestions and we will be writing about those soon enough.
The comments section was closed on the deadline, but we’re leaving the comments up for a couple of days more. After that, we’ll be making the comments private since there are a lot of e-mail addresses there.
August 23 Update: Took down all 74 comments. Thanks again, guys.
