Writing with Light

Photography DUH!

Shannon Kalahan and David Pasillas are both photographers/bloggers whose work I admire and follow. A couple of weeks ago they released their first collaborative effort, an ebook for the budding landscape photographer, Photography Duh!

This isn’t your typical photography book which covers technical information, instead it’s a no-nonsense, common sense book of mistakes you should avoid and not just any mistake but mistakes that both Shannon and David have made. Truth be told as I was reading the book I have to admit I’ve made some of them myself.Shannon Kalahan, David Passillas, ebook, photography, landscap photography

Now don’t get me wrong this book isn’t just about mistakes to avoid but there’s some great advice and instruction on things you should do. Shannon and David cover everything from how to keep your gear clean when out shooting; equipment you should have with you when out in the field (and not just camera gear); rules…when to break them and when not to and yes they do get into some of the juicy stuff that us photographers like to review every so often and such as exposure; light and editing.

The fun thing about this book…yes I said fun…is it’s written a with a great sense of humour and a little bit of tongue in cheek. Frankly I wish they had written it before I had made some of these mistakes over the years.

The book is available in Shannon’s store here and at $5.99 it’s a steal.

  4. Reblogged this on iPhone Photographer | David Pasillas and commented:
    Photographer Edith Levy recently reviewed our ebook. You should go see what she had to say, and more importantly, check out Edith’s body of work. She takes some great travel photos and iphone photos. I’m sure quite a few of you will enjoy her work, if you haven’t come across it yet.
