Sorry, the give-away is now over!
If you read yesterday’s post about Essential Books for Digital Photography, you will see I am pretty enthusiastic about a couple photo books in particular. One of them that I think is really wonderful, and which really opened my eyes recently, is Available Light by Don Marr. I discussed it in depth in yesterday’s post, so I won’t repeat that here. But anyway, I liked it so much, I contacted the publisher (Amherst Media) and asked them to send me a copy to use as a free give-away on my blog. And they enthusiastically agreed to this!
So stay tuned for the free photo book give-away, which I will initiate as soon as I have the book in hand, hopefully sometime around Oct. 15.
Here is a photo I took immediately after reading the book, putting what I learned to use. Notice the amazing glow of the 100% natural, available light. This was taken on an afternoon with bright sunlight, by placing the subject under an overpass to control the direction and intensity of the light.
