The Essential Guide to Portrait Photography

In Books, Resources by David13 Comments

I had a whole other post written and scheduled for today, but I’ve bumped it because I just got my copy of The Essential Guide to Portrait Photography from the folks at DPS. Digital-Photography-School.com is a massive community of enthusiastic learners and they’ve just produced and announced The Essential Guide to Portrait Photography. It’s an ebook, it’s priced at an …

A Grab Bag

In News & Stuff, Quoted, Resources by David9 Comments

Hey look, it’s an “E”! Speaking of E… This week I launched the fourth in the my eBook series. Chasing The Look is now available. Still for $5. More information HERE. Canon Blogger did an interview with me last week and it’s now live. The audio is a bit low, so you might need to crank it, but it was …

Creative Mix Vancouver

In Resources, Vision Is Better, Workshops and Events by David4 Comments

On Thursday I’ll be spending the day with a chunk of Vancouver’s creative community. The conference is called Creative Mix and unlike so many other conferences where you learn skills and hang out in a ghetto of your industry peers (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), this one’s different. Music executives, people from the advertising world, performance artisits, visual …

Seeing The Light

In Books, News & Stuff, Resources by David7 Comments

I’m a voracious reader, it’s one of the ways I learn best, and eBooks seem to be a great bridge between the information found online for free and the $40 price-tag of a print book. There’s a place for all of those. A month or two I directed you to Mitchell Kanashkevitch’s ebook about post-processing. It was, and still is, …

A Round Up of Miscellanea

In GEAR, News & Stuff, Resources by David12 Comments

I nearly neglected y’all for two days in a row. Sorry ’bout that. Sharon’s on vacation with friends in Florida and I’m using the time to catch up on creative things I’ve been meaning to get a jump on. So, plenty of distractions. Where does the time go? But I’ve got some tidbits I’ve been meaning to get to you …

Thursday Resource Roundup

In News & Stuff, Resources by David12 Comments

My friend, Mitchell Kanashkevich is an extraordinarily talented photographer, I’m a huge fan of his work. He’s just released an ebook (image above is from the cover) about his post-production methods and it rocks. It’s the real goods. No gimmicks, no fancy plug-ins. It’s somewhere between a book and an extended set of tutorials in length, but the cost on …

Tuesday Roundup

In Giveaways, News & Stuff, Resources, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

Yesterday was a long day shooting in the sun, my brain’s barely up to more than a roundup of some things I’ve been intending to mention. First, last week I was down in Tampa with my friends at Kelby Media to flog the book (see the bald guy smiling suspiciously in image above). At some point I’ll pull back the …
