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.

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 …

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 …
