Free eBook!

Free eBook!

So I picked up some scrumptious looking cherries this weekend, with the intent of both eating and photographing them (of course).  Over the past day or so, I’ve been searching the web for images and information on how to shoot them in a unique way.  I stumbled across this article on that discussed some inexpensive eBooks on photography, and by inexpensive I mean free.  Just as well, the majority of the .pdf books here are $5- that’s a pretty good bargain, especially for free access.  They cover most aspects of photography- lighting, macro, styling, inspiration and improvement.

I’ll let you know if it turns out to be a good read!

Articles #001: “How to read a photograph like a book”

August 3, 2012

One of my purposes with this blog site is not only to expand my own knowledge and understanding; but to pass it along to others.

Today, I found and interesting article from that we can apply to all genres of photography.  The article covers seven different items to think about when looking at a photograph.  It reminds us that in order to learn the craft, it is important to study it.  I’ve often found myself asking the question- “but what am I supposed to be looking for?”  The article really broke it down by simply listing questions on what you ask yourself wen looking at a photo.  I really think this will definitely help me critique my own work!
