New eBook – Light & Land
One of the ideas I had when I wrote Vision & Voice was to release an ebook version where people took some of the ideas and presented their own spin, sort of a “Your Voice, Your Vision.” kind of thing. Michael Frye’s new Craft & Vision title, released today, does this and much, much more. A photographer based on Yosemite’s doorstep, Michael Frye knows his stuff and I’m embarrassed to say that having just written a book on post-processing in Lightroom, Michael took me to school a couple times in this new book. It’s written specifically for people with an interest in Landscapes because landscape work, like other specific genres, has its own challenges, but it’s way more than that.
We try really hard at Craft & Vision to create books that are equal parts inspiring and instructional, to give you ten dollars – or more – of substance – for the five dollars – or less – that you pay. Light & Land does this in spades. Michael discusses some principles and landscape-specific considerations, then walks you through the Lightroom-based development of 5 different images, discussing the hows and whys of each one. Michael’s discussions apply equally for Lightroom users as well as Aperture or Photoshop fans, you just have to do the translation from one slider name to another; the principles are all the same.
Light & Land stands on its own as a substantial class in digital development of landscape images but will be of use to anyone wanting to take their post-processing to the next level. This one’s 36 spreads, which is 72 pages by the old pagination. Now we just force the spread and call a duck a duck. But there’s 72 pages worth of content in here and it’s all gold, baby.
