Game changing techniques to improve your photography
Are you looking to raise your game? To improve your photography and it to the next level?
Do you look at other photographers’ images and think “why do their photos look better than mine?”
Are you looking for the secret sauce to improve your photography so you, too, can make professional looking images?
Like all things in life, if you want a different outcome, you have to do something different. Invariably that means stepping outside your comfort zone and trying new ideas and techniques. Photography is no different. I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve met who’ve told me they upgraded to a full-frame DSLR only to be disappointed because their photographs looked exactly the same on the new camera as they did on the old one. There’s a reason for that: it’s because they’re using it in exactly the same way.

After 2 years in the making, today is a very proud moment — my photography ebook is finally here.
I wrote about it first on this post a looooong time ago and this morning I finished it, compiled it and published it through theLightMatters.com eshop.
I’ve called it 10 Top Tips for Making Better Images and it’s aimed at new and aspiring photographers alike who want to improve their photographic skills and start to make better images. The goal was very simple: to write a book that’s easy to read and free from as much technical jargon as possible. Of course, there has to be a bit or the reader would never know which control to adjust but I’ve kept it to an absolute minimum.
It’s also camera agnostic too. By that I mean it’s valid for any DSLR camera and most of the content is also applicable to bridge cameras, compact cameras and even camera phones.
My ebook is available for immediate download when purchased through theLightMatters’ shop and is available in both EPUB and PDF formats
Sneak peek… Read the first two chapters before you buy
The first two chapters are now available for you to read when you click through to book in our on-line shop along with the table of contents.
Hope you enjoy it. Writing a photography ebook has been on my bucket list for a while now and although I started it over 2 years ago, I finally scheduled the time to finish writing it and publish it through my blog. When I figure out how, I’ll also make it available through Amazon too, hopefully as a hard copy.
