Book Review: “A Deeper Frame” by David duChemin

In this eBook,* duChemin explains how to achieve greater depth in ones photos. In photography, depth can mean many things but he makes it clear of what type of depth he’s referring to. He isn’t referring to emotional depth, conceptual depth or, in his own words, “rich symbolism that illicit the “”Whoa man, that’s deep,” responses from the black-turtleneck, art-nic crowd.” He discusses spacial depth and 3 dimensionality in the physical world. In essence, how to take a 3 dimensional world and portray it the way you want to in a 2 dimensional medium.

Book Review: (micro)STOCK by Nicole S. Young

I admit, I am one of those photographers who has tried my hand at making money by selling (trying at least) to sell my images through stock libraries in an effort to pay for my terribly costly camera snapping habit. Sadly, while  I have sold one  image,  I need to sell another 100 before I can get paid out what I have earned. Not really successful. Now I have gone through Nicole S. Young’s new book, published by Craft & Vision called (micro)STOCK: FROM PASSION TO PAYCHECK. What a wow moment.
