New Plan, Part II

In GEAR, Jessie and I, Travel by David58 Comments

  Caveat: This is a post about gear. So many of you will get all glossy-eyed. Worse: it’s not even camera gear. This is a post about the gear I’ve chosen to live with on the on-going (if not somewhat interupted) nomadic adventure with Jessie. You will be forgiven if you just move on, not everyone cares about field kitchens …

TEN & TEN MORE UPDATED

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, News & Stuff by David22 Comments

Easily the best-selling books in the Craft&Vision library are still TEN and TEN MORE. They’re still the most popular books and they’re still one of the best values in photography education out there anywhere. Well recently we’ve been feeling like they were getting a little dusty – our designs have evolved, and let’s face it, our Layout Ninja, Luke Taylor, …

OK, New Plan. Part I

In GEAR, Jessie and I, Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel by David76 Comments

I think we can all agree that this year went a little sideways. If things had gone to plan I’d have picked Jessie up in Atlanta over a month ago, spun through the Florida Keys, lingered for three weeks, then come up the Eastern seaboard, and back into Canada. By now I’d be heading east toward the Maritimes, finally to …

Twilight I, Tahoe [hana-code-insert name=’ADD – TAHOE’ /][hana-code-insert name=’VIEW – TAHOE’ /] It’s been a long time since I did much more with my work than either hand it over to clients or put it in a book.

In Wallpapers by David21 Comments

Iceland, August 2010. This is a 1920×1200 wallpaper, so it’ll do for anything up to a 17″ MacBook Pro. Click the image to access the larger file. June 30th was my mother’s birthday, so I let her pick the wallpaper this month. She loves this one, so the rest of you are stuck with it. 🙂 Seems a small thing …

A Deeper Frame

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books by David30 Comments

In my first eBook, TEN, I made ten suggestions for improving your photographs. The first of ten was to add greater depth to your photographs, but I didn’t elaborate much. Now halfway through writing a new book, Photographically Speaking, sidelines by what might have been a fatal fall while shooting in Pisa, Italy, I have had a great deal of …
