How/Why did you start blogging?
I started by sharing sneak peeks with my clients from their portrait sessions.
Has your reason for blogging changed? If so, why?
When I took the family portraits for my friend Amy from The Idea Room blog, she asked me if I wanted to share weekly photography tips on her blog. I did that for nearly a year, and found that her readers would come to my blog to read what I was sharing, which turned into other loves, I also enjoyed blogging about crafts, recipes, and home diy projects. I loved sharing the tips on her blog, but I got overwhelmed with coming up with something each week, so it eventually ended.
Tell us about your Books & Workshops!
I have written 2 books for the beginner photographer. One, called Say NO to Auto which is the very basics and 2nd, Get Focused, which is the intermediate level who is comfortable off of auto settings. I have sold nearly 3000 copies, and love the feedback I hear from others that my books have helped them! My books and info on them can be found here: http://kristendukephotography.com/?page_id=7602
I also travel some and do workshops for Say NO to Auto.
