Lucky Charms

Today is Small Business Saturday, another day set aside to get people to part with more of their money. In this case, the goal is to get consumers to support their local and small businesses. Regardless of your opinion of the consumerist circus that occurs the weekend after Thanksgiving, now is as good a time as any for promoting my own small business and products: my ebook, Capturing the Journey; two different wall calendars for 2012; and, an assortment of images that are available as fine art prints, an example of which is below. So this holiday season, in your search for meaningful gifts for your loved ones, consider avoiding the crowds and the pepper spray and giving something different, while supporting my small business. My ebook would be great for that friend or family member looking for some help with their photography basics. Feel free to download it and pass it on. And calendars will make great stocking stuffers. Well, maybe a really large stocking…

MY eBook!!

The best ebook you never knew you needed! Be sure to check it out.

Craft & Vision

And speaking of ebooks, Craft and Vision is out with their latest: Making Light: An Introduction to Off-Camera Flash. If you’ve ever been interested in the idea of getting your flash off the camera but have thought of the idea as too daunting, this is a great ebook to get you going. Written by Piet Van den Eynde who wrote another Craft and Vision ebook earlier this year on black and white processing that I highly recommended, it covers the basics of working with off-camera flash in a clear and easy to understand manner. Piet takes the mystery out of the equipment needed, even giving step by step instructions for setting up a remotely fired flash for both Canon and Nikon systems. And while giving the theory and formulas behind several lighting principles, he emphasizes the practical aspect. The ebook ends with 9 case studies to help illustrate the principles discussed throughout the ebook.

I’m a bit late getting this review out, but if you hurry you can get Making Light for only $4 by using the code LIGHT4 at checkout. This code expires at 11:59pm PST August 21st, 2011.

I’ve played around a bit with off-camera flash off and on over the last couple years, but have yet to master it in any real way. It can be really fun, but definitely challenging. While the basics of it are pretty straight-forward, it takes a lot of practice to get the details right. Here’s a recent one of Billy the Panda Boy at the University of Washington campus in Seattle with a bare 580EX II to camera-left.

Capturing the Journey

I’m happy to announce my new and first ebook: Capturing the Journey – A Beginner’s Guide to the Basics of Travel Photography.

Capturing the Journey - Cover

Capturing the Journey ebook - Cover

There are a lot of ebooks and other resources out there for anyone who wants to learn more about photography. Most of those are geared toward those who have dSLRs or are interested in photography as a hobby. But what if you are going on a vacation or planning some long-term travel and you just want to take better pictures? What if you don’t care about ISOs and f-stops?

I believe anyone can learn to take better pictures. Having a dSLR and learning about all your camera settings can certainly give you a lot more creative control over your pictures, and that’s great, but you can do a lot to improve your photos regardless of the camera you have just by learning some compositional techniques and by paying attention to a few other photographic elements and details. This ebook is over 50 pages of tips, tricks and suggestions to help you start taking better pictures, all illustrated with gorgeous photographs that help to demonstrate the described techniques.

You can read more about it here! Or purchase the ebook today.
