3 Affordable E-books to Improve Your Photography

Today I spent a couple of hours working through 3 great new ebooks by David duChemin.

The 3 e-books are only $5 (USD) each – yet they contain some really great information that I’m certainly many DPS readers will really find useful.

Lets take a look at each of them in turn:

1. TEN (10 Ways To Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear.)

David describes this ebook like this:

“10 is my 32 page answer to everyone that’s ever written in and asked me “So, what can I do to make better photographs now? I have the basics but want to take my images up to the next level. Where do I go from here?””

It’s filled with practical tips and inspirational images to illustrate the points David is making.

2. TEN MORE (10 More Ways To Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear.)

A followup to the first ebook in this one David shares another great 10 tips for photographers wanting to take their work up a notch (or two).

The tips are simple – yet powerful.

3. DRAWING THE EYE (CREATING STRONGER IMAGES THROUGH VISUAL MASS)

This newest ebook from David moves beyond some of the more general tips in the first two ebooks and hones in on principles of composition, ‘visual mass’ and ‘drawing the eye’ of those viewing your images.

All three ebooks are beautifully put together and contain loads of great visual examples of the principles that David is talking about.

Buy one or grab all three – for $5 each they’re a great opportunity to get inside the mind of one of the world’s most respected photography authors.

    Thanks I may buy the second Ebook TEN MORE (10 More Ways To Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear.)

    Thanks! I will surely look into buying these books. Are there any preview pages available?

  • PRH

    “…none of them involve buying gear”
    That’s the best line I’ve seen :D
    As photographers, either hobbyists or professionals, we can get obsessed with accumulating more gear, which often sits in the camera bag unused. These books sound great. The third has particularly caught my eye (pardon the pun) since this is an aspect that I struggle with the most.

  • http://foodientravelbug.blogspot.com Mei Teng

    Thanks for introducing this e-books. Will look into them.

  • Mel Anne

    these ebooks are great. I bought all three and have just spent the last couple of hours pouring over them. I feel very inspired and can’t wait to get out with my camera tomorrow and put into practice what I’ve been learning!

  • Grant

    Thanks for the recommendation. I bought the ’10’ one and read it all and am now going to get the other two based upon the quality of what I read.

  • Manny

    This is a very sweet deal! Bought all 3, then loaded them into my iPhone using Air Sharing, so that I now have them as a portable reference, especially good for my upcoming travels. Thank you very much!

    I must say the Ebook TEN MORE (10 More Ways To Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear is a good buy, the 10 ways are obvious when you start reading the book, I guess what the read does is focuses you more on what you may be missing out on, the simple things! As you know we all miss the simple things in life. Sometimes we tend to jump into the deep end and give up far 2 easily, just give it time,. relaxed, clam, consistant and objective. The book focuses on some of these areas.

    These are great books, and the photography in them is excellent as well (make sure you view the PDFs in “facing page” view in Acrobat to get the full effect). I really liked each of the “10” e-books, but the third one was the most substantial of them for me.

    looks like an interesting book, but why buy the book if I get loads of free information from this website.

    Just downloaded and finished reading “Drawing the Eye” and its relationship to Visual Mass. A great read and an amazing concept I can’t wait to develop. Definitely the way to take your photos from pics to photographs.
    Thanks for the link.

    This latest e-book from Bob goes beyond some of the more common guidelines in the first two e-books and hones in on concepts of structure, ‘visual mass’ and ‘drawing the eye’ of those watching your pictures.
