The articles are written by a variety of professional photographers and cover a wide range of topics. And although some of the articles may not specifically apply to nature photography, I’ve always felt you can learn a lot by exploring other types of photography.
Here’s a list of what you’ll learn in this free ebook:
- Benefits of shooting in manual mode
- How to recognize good light
- How to isolate your subject
- How to balance your flash with ambient light
- Tips for working with black and white images
- How to make sharper images
- Tips for dealing with “bad light”
- Tips for streamlining your post-processing
All of the articles are written by some really inspirational photographers, so I think you’ll learn a lot from every page of the ebook. One of my favorite things about the book is that at the end of every article there are links to more ebooks that explore that topic in more depth.
Be sure to check out their other free ebook too. It’s also packed with some great tips 🙂
And, if you enjoy their free ebooks (which I’m sure you will!), then I’d highly recommend checking out some of their paid eBooks too. I’ve been reading eBooks from Craft & Vision ever since they started publishing, and I feel like their books are some of the best resources for improving your compositional skills. They’ve put together a great team of photographers.
I especially enjoy the books by David duChemin and Andrew Gibson. Not only are they excellent photographers, but they’re also exceptional teachers and writers. They have a special talent for explaining complex ideas in a clear and easy to understand way. Here are some specific books I can recommend:
- Drawing the Eye by David duChemin
- Ten by David duChemin
- Up Close by Andrew Gibson
- Beyond Thirds by Andrew Gibson
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the free eBook! 🙂
