David Duchemin, globe-trotting photographer and founder of Craft and Vision publishing, has compiled an e-book filled with perspective and techniques by a team of talented pros. It’s title says it all: “11 Ways to Improve your Photography”. Like many other C&V books I’ve read, this one is excellently written and beautifully presented.
Chapters include “Make your Images more Dynamic”, “Tame your Digital Exposure”, and “Learn to Direct the Eye” amongst others. And contributing authors include Martin Bailey, Michael Frye, Nichole S. Young and David himself.
It’s easily worth C&V’s usual $5.00 cost per e-book. But this e-book is a gift from David, and is totally free, gratis, no strings attached. You don’t need a tablet or smartphone to read it. The download is a PDF file, so you can read it on any computer.
Take a look and I’m betting you’ll enjoy it.
Occasionally, 2 Guys Photo comes across e-books that we think you’ll enjoy, so watch for future recommendations. And thanks for stopping by.
Thank you so much for the link. I will definitely download it and see what else I can learn. I’ll share it too with the course students. Bless you.
Thanks Lizzie. I’ll pass along some additional recommendations in the near future. Enjoy!
Thanks for the link! I need all the help I can get…
Awesome book! Thanks Ed and Rey for sharing and thanks to Craft and Vision! I have only read the first chapter on Making your photos More Dynamic, but I am excited to read the rest when I have more time. It is already full of great tips and information, some of which 2 Guys have shared in the past, but now all in one “compact” e book… I can’t wait to go out and get some dynamic shots now! P.S. Maybe Ed and Rey should write an ebook someday when they have more time?? Just suggesting…
Hi Rodney. We’ve actually talked about that. It’s on our “bucket list”! Thanks, Ed.
Thanks, Ed. I appreciate the link, will definitely put it to good use! Thanks again!
Thanks Howard. Let us know if you find it useful. Ed
Hey! appologies for coming in so late but.. IM GLAD YOU’RE BACK! Now off to start back-reading 7 months worth of 2guysphoto-goodness 🙂
Ian! Welcome back. I see you’re still the master of concert photography. Hope all is well on your side of the planet. Best, Ed
Hi Ed! Nice to see you again. Thanks but I’m still struggling a bit with concert photogaphy. It’s a never ending learning experience.
Great E-book. Thanks for the link. The first few chapters start out pretty basic but the later chapters are extremely thought provoking. I see by the discussion on “Stages” I am somewhere between stage 3, 4 and striving toward stage 5. I must be in stage 3 because I am still somewhat of a gear head and in stage 4 because I still read 2 Guys Photo. So in order to graduate fully to stage 5 I have to lose your URL? I may be a terminal intermediate photographer.
The chapter “Create Projects and Collaborate” addresses some of my earlier question to you guys on your approach to shooting. Although to collaborate via the “Behance Network” as suggested in that chapter is to dive into the stratosphere of photographers…peruse, yes…upload my stuff?..not until I am fully ensconced in stage 6.
This book just goes to show that what you can do with this hobby is virtually open ended. That is probably what makes it so appealing.
Great feedback Prentis. I’d love to say I’m between stages 5 and 6, but in reality, 4 feels more like home to me. And I’m betting that if you could ever determine objectively at what stage every photog was really at, and graphed it, you’d see a bubble at stage 1 and another at 4. I think the transition from 4 to 5 is probably the most difficult, as it requires a level of photographic maturity that eludes most people, (and I can relate!).
I totally support the value of community, not just for Photogs but for anyone with a passion, and a desire to improve.
So don’t lose that URL! We’d like to think that we’re a means to an end, no matter how far away that end might be.
It’s the journey, not the destination, that matters. Be well, Ed
