Photography Tutorials

If you think you’re too good to learn more about photography, you are wrong.
Simply, utterly incorrect.

//My tutorials

To be honest I stopped writing these since no one was reading them. I will start again. I assure you it’s all stored up in my head just waiting to come out.

Next up: Shutter Speed and Motion,  how to buy a camera<—, black and white processing, digital workflow with ACR/PS CS6, street photography

 

//Online Resources:

I’m going to go ahead and say this… unlike other sites where it’s all about ME ME ME… I’m actually going to link you to places that I generally like, and are extremely useful.

  • Cambridge in colour – probably the most professional and thorough sight out there.
  • Camera Labs / DSLRtips – Gordon Laing is one of my heroes!
  • DigitalRev - Fantastic camera reviews by Kai. You have to keep in mind that most of the time hes making fun of the current state of the camera market and how companies are producing needless reiterations of the same camera over and over. He does serious reviews for the cameras that matter, and just trolls on the ones that are useless.
  • mu-43 Forums – Micro 4/3ds forums… I’m semi active on here… (actually I just go on to complain about banding issues with the OMD)
  • 43rumors.com – I go here to check on the latest news on micro 4/3… (actually I just check this to see if there’s a fix to the banding problem for the OMD)
  • mingthein.com – An extremely good photographer, his shots are very clean, creative, well cut and composed. (in comparison to Daido Moriyama’s)

//Inspirations:
I have this listed on my about page, but again… I would be nothing without these guys:

Eli Reed, Mary Kang, Tamir Kalifa, Elliot Erwitt, Robert Doinseau, Henri Cartier Bresson, Ansel Adams, Bruce Barnbaum, Daido Moriyama, Tommy Oshima, etc…

The best book (mostly text) I’ve ever read about photography (not for beginners):
The Art of Photography by Bruce Barnbaum
Both the kindle and print copies are good! I bought both!

The best photography book I’ve ever seen:
Elliot Erwitt Snaps

//Just the coolest fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my life:

The full video of Daido Moriyama can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUAk84LDFVA

I purchased one of his many books: Get it here

//Probably the best Rule of thirds video out there, and I’d have a tough time replicating it:

Compare that with this:

the proposal

See the similarities? Heh.
