Craft & Vision: 50%-off ebooks + new LR4 book
Craft & Vision have been busy bees of late, with a new release nearly every week for the last month or so. This week it's a big book, Piet Van den Eynde's Lightroom 4 Unmasked. The book is an English-language version of Piet's Lightroom 4 Ontmaskerd, which has been available in the original Dutch for some time now. My only complaint with the book is that many of the older screen captures have taken a quality hit in making the transition from the original edition to Craft & Vision PDF, but the book is nonetheless a comprehensive resource for Lightroom 4 users, and its author is an authority to be reckoned with. There's even a nice spread devoted to TTG toward the back of the book, though the information there is now a little bit out-of-date (we'll try to catch up the text in the inevitable Lightroom 5 edition, whenever that happens).
But that's not all. Visit Craft & Vision before Friday, November 23 at 11:59pm (PST) and you’ll find every eBook marked down by 50%. No discount codes required - the prices have already been slashed. Exclusions: BigBooks and Magazines are not discounted.
And while I was in Cambodia last week, Craft & Vision released an ebook which was clearly made with me in mind -- I had no idea they cared so much! Andrew S. Gibson tackles one of my very favorite types of photography -- long exposure photography -- in his latest ebook SLOW: The Magic of Long Exposure Photography.
I'm not all the way through yet -- you know, Cambodia, publisher, etc. -- but I dug into the book a bit on my flight and really like it a lot. Gibson addresses the usual stuff -- tripods, ND filters, triggers -- but also broaches ICM (intentional camera movement) image-making and other techniques. And the book is packed with beautiful, inspirational images, and a couple of excellent case-studies of well-known long-exposure photographers. All-in-all, a great read and one I am very much looking forward to getting back to. Don't miss it at 50%-off.
It so happens that exploring the Cambodian countryside by tuktuk provides ample opportunity to experiment with ICM technique. So, in the spirit of SLOW, here are some blurry pictures from my trip last week:
