FREE: Craft & Vision 2

My team at Craft & Vision has done it again. Together we’ve created a gorgeous PDF eBook with 9 great articles, and we’re giving it away. Totally free. Craft & Vision 2, More Great Ways to Make Stronger Photographs, contains articles by Martin Bailey, Piet Van den Eynde, Nicole S. Young, Dave Delnea, Sean McCormack, and me, all written just for this book. Martin discusses making sharper images and learning to shoot in manual mode, Piet writes about developing smarter, Sean McCormack tackles balancing flash with ambient light, and Nicole S Young talks about learning to see light. Dave Delnea’s got a great article on developing style and consistency. I’ve contributed 3 articles: Learning to Isolate, Try it in Black & White, and Redeem the Light, an article about coping strategies for challenging light.

Did I mention it’s free? But WAIT! There’s more! President’s Sale! Need to make room for the 2014 models! Liquidation Sale! BIG INFLATABLE GORILLA! If you act now, you can get TWO free eBooks for the price of NONE! That’s right, two for none! We’ve bundled Craft & Vision 1 and Craft & Vision 2, which together give you 20 great ways to improve your craft without spending a penny.

Of course there’s a catch. First, these eBooks aren’t going to download themselves. You need to press the button. So drink a Red Bull and when you’ve gathered your strength, hit the links at the bottom of this post to download C&V 2, or the bundle. If we could do it for you we would, but alas…. And the second catch, well it’s not really a catch at all. But I’m hoping you’d consider telling the world about the book. If you’d share this post, or the links to the books, with your own networks on Twitter, Facebook, etc., we’d be grateful. It’s a win-win. You get free eBooks, so do they. And in turn our fan-base grows and we can afford to keep making free eBooks. It’s like downloadable Karma.

Seriously, thank you for being so supportive. I speak for everyone at Craft & Vision when I tell you how grateful we are, and that we hope you find something in these two books that helps you on your photographic journey.

    Dear Sir,
    I just downloaded the new ebook Craft and Vision 2. It is glittering like a gold, at present gold is the most expensive item’
    Really, It’s new era of knowledge what makes us laugh with the real contents with adequate images in a limited page. I mean, without a ton of time….
    Yes, with the heart of a subject… All the best sir.

    I’ve just discovered you from another Vancouver-ite (?) who is also a magnificent photographer. Your words and images are quite inspiring. Your work is already helping me ‘see’ life with more brilliance.
