Over the last few months a number of respected photographers have released some quality e-books and e-resources for photographers.
We thought it might be a great time to do a wrap up of some of the e-books that we recommend the most here at DPS.
Here they are, listed in no particular order of quality or preference as each will meet different photographers needs in different ways.
Price: Starting at $49.95
Description: Learn digital photography through a highly visual and interactive guide containing thousands of graphics and animations.
Length: 5137 pages
What We Say: the most comprehensive photography training resource available today – packed with useful and practical information. See if it’s right for you with a free demo download.
Length: 51 pages
Description: This eBook is ideal for anyone who photographs people and doesn’t carry around cases of lighting equipment. It contains explanations and diagrams on “sculpting” with light and creating atmospheric lighting effects with a single flash, a reflector or just the available natural light.
What We Say: this E-book is a breath of fresh air. Light – as photographers we can’t do our thing without learning about it. This e-book is well written and helpful for a photographer who might not have bags full of equipment (or who can’t haul them all around the world with them).
Length: 37 pages
Description: E-book tutorial on post-processing photographs in Photoshop and Lightroom. Through in-depth step by step tutorials, illustrations and explanations, it will help you produce striking images with plenty of impact.
What We Say: another great resource from travel and documentary photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich. It takes 5 photographs and works readers through the processes that he takes to achieve the looks in the images using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Description: Understanding and nurturing our creativity is the first step in breaking out of our ruts.
Length: 28 page PDF ebook
What We Say: this is David’s 5th e-book and as with all that he does it is both inspirational and useful to photographers who are feeling a little ‘stuck’. Something to keep handy for those days when you just can’t get in the zone.
Description: Improve your craft with the ebook that started it all. The Title says it all but the link below will give you more info.
Length: 32 page PDF ebook
What We Say: Easy to read, practical and inspirational tips from an experienced photographer. It’s not a technical e-book but if you’re starting out in photography or an intermediate photographer looking to take your images to the next level this is one to consider.
Length: 34 pages
Description: This is the follow-up to TEN. It’s just ten more.
What We Say: A great followup to David’s original ‘TEN’ e-book with more of the same. These two e-books would be great to go through slowly over time, taking a principle to work on at a time each time you go out and practice when you go out with your digital camera. We love the imagery in David’s book!
Length: 32 pages
Description: Learn how to lead the eye of the viewer to create more powerful images.
What We Say: One of the most important aspects of photography is composition and thinking about how your image will be viewed by those who see it. This e-book teaches you how to be proactive in this and intentionally lead those viewing your shots rather than just hoping that an image will be well received. Learn how people view an image and how to work WITH these principles to create powerful images.
Length: 48 pages
Description: “How come my photographs don’t look like that?” The short answer is that we need to begin thinking aesthetically and not merely technically.
What We Say: David is great at teaching photographers not just to be technical and this e-book tackles this topic really well. Good shots don’t just happen – we have to be intentional about it – this one helps photographers to do just this.
Length: 80 pages
Description: This eBook has been written as a step-by-step guide to accelerate your nocturnal photography.
What We Say: A little more tightly focused in terms of topic than some of the above but an excellent resource on a topic that fascinates many people – shooting at night in low light and ‘painting’ with light. A well explained and illustrated E-book for photographers of all levels.
Length: 78 pages
Description: We wanted to help you achieve your true potential as a portrait photographer, so we’ve released a comprehensive 78 page e-book to teach you the secrets of stunning portraiture.
What We Say: Well, we wrote it so we love it. What’s more important has been the great feedback we’ve had – some of which is on the sales page where you can get all the information you need on the e-book.
