Captivating Color – A Guide to Dramatic Color Photography

0Comments

Captivating Color eBookToday I’m excited to announce a brand new dPS eBook – it’s our most colorful one yet!

It’s called ‘Captivating Color – A Guide to Dramatic Color Photography‘ and we’re releasing it today with three great extras for Early Bird buyers over the next week:

  1. we’re throwing in a complete bonus eBook worth $12
  2. it’s 25% off – just $14.99 for both eBooks
  3. One buyer of Captivating Color will Win an iPad 2!

UPDATE: these bonuses have now ended. Thanks to all who entered. The eBook is still available at it’s normal price!

Why We Produced Captivating Color

  • The Dream – taking photographs that go beyond simply recording a scene – images that evoke emotion, making people feel as attached to the images as you are. The type of images people pay for.
  • The Reality – you continually take bland and lifeless photos – they just don’t capture the moment, as you see it through the lens. No matter how much you tweak in post production – you just can’t communicate the meaning behind the scene.
  • The Answer – color is as much a part of visual communication as composition or light – but you need to learn to see and understand it. This eBook will teach you to do just that and will illuminate the topic of color for anyone interested in using it to produce stronger, more interesting and more emotional color images.

Written by Mitchell Kanashkevich (author of our best selling Travel Photography eBook) – Captivating Color is brimming with gorgeous and inspirational images and practical advice that will help understand the creative potential of color and how to use it.

    “over the next week” – does that mean that “Seeing the light” becomes available from 28th of March?

    Thanks!

  • I ordered and downloaded my ebook. Will you be sending the Seeing the Light soon?

  • Keshav

    I have a debit card and I use Indian currency, will I be able to complete the purchase with this, or do I have to register with paypal?

    I think I’ll take DPS up on this offer, after the recent article on color I reviewed my photos and noticed some drabness that I’d missed before. There’s always the temptation to punch colors up a bit, but concerns about overdoing it usually prevail.

    Every once in a while, though, nature pulls it off for me.

    Posting Flickr housed images is not working out here for me. Flickr has an “interestingness” algorythm which analyzes the quality of an image based on how my comments are made and favorites are selected for each visit. For the first part of this #DPSVIBRANT I posted two image near the top of my interestingness sort. Over the past week, I have had several hundred visits from dps to those images. Guess what….they are not very interesting anymore. DPS visitors look at the images and leave. If you are going to visit our images,a comment, good/bad/indifferent but some guidance may help the image. If you like it, you should add it to your fav’s.

    The point is probably true in toher places too. When I visit your image on a site because of a comment posted here, I will add you as my Flickr friend, fav your good images adn leaved comments about my impressions for those I beleive need to have some constructive critique.

  • It’s great that DPS is offering this. While many of us write books on lighting and portraiture, it’s nice to see someone focusing on how powerful and effective color can be for improving one’s images. This is another piece of the puzzle for those wanting to know more about what can be done with their cameras and a little imagination. A reference like this can be an eye-opener!

  • Both eBooks are excellent!
    I’m very happy with my purchase and I recommend them.

    I need an iPad now… Crossing fingers 😉

  • This is a great resource and congrats for the issue!

  • I didn’t realize that the bonus book was one that I already had. Oh well; guess I need to read things more carefully.
