Did you know Canada.. fall is a great time to pick up a new hobby, activities often slow down (unless you are a hockey family!), weekends are a bit more free and let's face it, we are spending A LOT more time indoors.
If you are thinking about starting a new hobby or brushing up on an old one, DK Canada has you covered with a huge range of books on so many topics. Handmade Gifts, Beaded Jewelry, Stitching, Woodworking, Knitting, the list goes on!
Around here, since the birth of our little man Lucas, we have really been into photography. We purchased a DSLR and are always very interested in learning about setting up a shot, the best techniques, settings to use in different situations, and really how to photography absolutely everything!
And guess what - there is a book for EXACTLY that! How to Photograph Absolutely Everything by Tom Ang is a stunning book filled with tips, know how and easy to follow instructions for everything from city lights at night, animals in action, thunderstorms to those kiddos that never stop moving. Both my husband and I are really enjoying this easy to read yet incredibly knowledgeable book (what a great gift idea too!).
We've also been checking out another of Tom Ang's books, The Complete Photographer. The Complete Photographer is based around tutorials on ten different genres — Portraits, Landscape and Nature, Fashion, Wildlife, Sport, Documentary, Events, Travel, Architecture, and Fine Art-and shows in step-by-step detail how an idea progresses from concept stage to final image. Another gorgeous book that leaves you feeling knowledgeable about each topic, I really loved the Travel section.
DK Canada's Craft Boutique offers 30% off on all these amazing books, but only until October 15th, so shop this weekend, remember to think about the upcoming holidays when placing an order as well - I know a few that would enjoy the "Home Brew Beer" book for Christmas!
