By now you may well be aware that we really enjoy the Craft & Vision range of eBooks. At $5.00 (that roughly R35.00 at current rate of exchange) you could skip buying one fast food lunch meal – opting to take lunch instead – and spend that money on a read that will help improve your photography in your lunch break instead. Today the new book “A Deeper Frame” by David duChemin has been released. There is also a great deal running with its launch where if you buy a collection of Craft & Vision books before the end of 2 July 2011, you can get between 20-34% off. Check out the full release after the break for more. Plus the new book is being reviewed by Armani as well, that’s coming soon.
It is my personal belief that almost every photographer out there faces the decision at some point or another, of whether they should charge for their photographs turning a passion into their trade. If you have or are in the processes of making that choice, or if you already are working as a professional photographer, then VisionMongers is the perfect book for you.
David duChemin is an accomplished photographer and author. When I reviewed his book “Within the Frame” I found myslef itching to go out and shoot within the first few pages and so with great enthusiasm I began VisionMongers. Truth be told… this book review is several months overdue. I wanted to consume the pages to their utmost depths before writing the review but life gets busy and it has taken me some time to get to the point where I can type this. I must apologize for that.
This is another great book from Craft and Vision with a great launch discount (details at the end of this review). Winter in the Canadian Rockies by Darwin Wiggett is filled with fantastic images which have been taken over years through all seasons though it is in the winter that Darwin prefers to photograph this location. Right from the beginning of the book he states “As you can see from the photos, I have a warm fondness for the coolness of winter.”
The images are inspirational, making one wish that we had the opportunity to explore such winter wonderlands just for one week in our sweltering South African summer. One image that stands our particularly to me, perhaps as I so wish to experience it first hand, is an image with the green glow of the Northern Lights.
have for the first time – and hopefully not the last – created a photographic book featuring some of the best images submitted to their forum member galleries by some 18,000 plus members. Naturally the book only contains a handful of what there is for your viewing on the Outdoorphoto site.
So what can you expect to find inside this 192 page hardcover coffee table compliment?

One of my favourite photographs, of which I am not sure I have many (I am my worst critic), is an image I took of a sheet of glass on the roof of a new building in Johannesburg. It captivates one as you look at one is essentially two images as one. For this reason I … Read moreBook Review: Chasing Reflections by Eli Reinholdtsen
