I have been getting a few questions about how I did this or that photo in my posts. I do my best to answer each and every question with easy to understand explanations and enjoy the sharing of knowledge.
I to am on a constant quest for learning materials to improve my skills and creativity, having read many books by many authors these are a few that I have in my reference library.
By far my favorite photographer/author is Bryan Peterson, his lessons get straight to the point with clear examples and explanations.
Here are a few of Bryan’s books I recommend:
Bryan Peterson’s Understanding Composition Field Guide: How to See and Photograph Images with Impact
For Black & White Photography I really like From OZ to Kansas by Vincent Versace
A Podcast I really enjoy
Software in My Digital Dark Room:
Lightroom 4 Book I like:
OnOne software is a great software if your just starting into photo editing and does a great job from start to finish, is extremely user friendly and easy on the wallet as compared to PhotoShop. Plus they send you free preset packs about once a month and have many video tutorials on the website.
Great software now at a great price since Google bought the company right now the complete collection is $149US it used to cost $699US
NIK Silver EFX is the best in my opinion for Black & White Conversions and does targeted adjustments.
Great HDR Software just remember you can burn your toast with it, what I mean is over process your image but some folks like their toast and HDR Images that way. See my Previous HDR History Post
Its all good :->
I listed Photoshop Last in the list because well, it hardly ever gets used. The OnOne Software does Layers and fits my workflow better.
That is all I have for now and thanks to all my fellow bloggers as you all inspire me with your written word, photos and art.
