The Book Worm is Calling - Day 20

Sometimes the best thing you can do to improve your skills is to read and learn prior to actually engaging in your medium.

Today I've compiled a few fantastic websites/books to get you started!

Digital Photography School

Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera
{book by Bryan Peterson}

This site is awesome! They host multi-day workshops on photography related topics and you can watch the live feed for free...or purchase the workshops to watch later. I watched the Jasmine Star workshop and it totally blew my mind....I learned so much!!
This weekend there's a workshop titled "Exploring the Light" with Rick Sammon and, as you may have surmised, it's all about lighting.
I'm already registered and if you're going to be around this weekend I highly recommend you sign up too!

What great resources do you love?

  1. Thanks so much !!!!!!! :) i appreciate everything you are doing! LOVING this challenge! working on some "around the house" life photos for the exercise! :)

  3. Katie,

    I enjoy most books by Brian Peterson. And I also really like the dps you mentioned. I'll have to check out the creative LIVE link.

    Scott Kelly has good books. Mostly, I visit my photography friends blogs and use Google to find tutorials. I got most my education from what you mentioned and Darcy's 31 days photography posts last year. This year, and have been my biggest resources.

  4. LOVE Brian Peterson! I need to get back to re-reading his books I have. My mind has forgotten most of it and needs to be refreshed. I'm going to have to check out the creativeLIVE you mentioned.


Thank you for your visit and comment! I read and value each and every one. I am no longer able to keep up with returning comments on blogs, but please know that your visit and comment is greatly appreciated!
