Giggles and Goldfish » Inspiration for the Everyday Photographer

Shooting the Everyday | These are a few of my favorite things

It’s been a good week.  I had been planning this photography giveaway since I launched the blog in January, but now is a great time to have it.   I am so very proud of how much the blog has grown over the last two months.

We have reached 800 fans on Facebook.

We were mentioned in a Huffington Post article this week.

So many of you are sharing your work on Facebook and through the feature submissions.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the My Five features, each photographer lists their favorite 5 photography products.  A few of mine have been mentioned so let’s give those away to one lucky winner!

ProPhoto 5

First, ProPhoto 5.  I can’t say enough good things about ProPhoto.  The Giggles & Goldfish blog is a ProPhoto 5 blog and I only discovered several new features last week when I watched their What’s New in ProPhoto 5 video.

Want a ProPhoto blogsite of your very own?  Don’t worry if you are not the winner you can still use this discount code to save $10 off a ProPhoto template!!!  CJAM9499

ProPhoto Blog (Do-It-Yourself Installation) – $199 value and will not include their installation services. Install help is found on their website, and the winner has the option to purchase their professional installation separately, Expert Install Only – $80. Existing ProPhoto customers can also use the provided software/license as an upgrade from a previous ProPhoto installation. If the winner already uses this version of ProPhoto, they may not receive their winnings in any other form, but may transfer their winnings of the ProPhoto software to another individual if desired.

To use ProPhoto you must have WordPress installed on your website and it must be a  You cannot use Prophoto with a account.  Hosting services are not included in this giveaway and are the full responsibility of the winner.



Next, VSCO.  I now edit almost exclusively with VSCO presets in Lightroom for my images as well as my video clips.  Did you know you can apply a VSCO preset to video in Lightroom?  They just released VSCO Film 05: The Archetype Films Collection and it is on sale until March 11th. (25% off for new users or 50% off for current VSCO users)


Lightroom 5

Not a Lightroom user?  That’s okay!  VSCO is also available for ACR (01 and 02 are available for Aperture 3), but the winner of this giveaway will also receive their very own copy of LR5.

Enter below for your chance to win this fabulous prize pack.  Contest ends March 9th at 11:59pm MT
