What makes a photographer good at their craft? Is it their technical mastery of their digital gear, or magical post processing abilities? Becoming a better photographer is something we all strive to be, all of the time. It’s a craft we pursue as a creative outlet of expression, a passion if you will. You may have seen in our “Cool Sites” section, a recommendation to check out David duChemin’s PixelatedImage Blog. Not only is he one talented photographer, he’s become a mentor to all of us, helping us improve as photographers. David shows us through his blog, that while the craft of photography is good, Vision is Better. With that thought, a brand new ebook was born appropriately titled, Vision is Better.
This new ebook is a collection of essays (and rants) straight from the PixelatedImage Blog, exquisitely reworked into one stunning ebook. While all of the essays and articles could certainly be viewed (for free) off David’s blog, the ebook version is so well put together (not to mention saving time/effort) that it’s well worth purchasing none the less. The photography is stunning; the lessons invaluable. Here’s a quick overview of Vision is Better:
