Winter Reading Book Club

My Book Bag

Winter Reading

For the rest of the year, I’ll be sharing a few books from my own reading list every Monday. This is the season (at least in the northern hemisphere) where you curl up with a good book and invest in your own creativity. This week’s recommendation is Portraits of Earth by David duChemin. It is an inspiring look at the craft of landscape photography. The inspiring part is why you should get it.

Book Club Details: I hope this will be a book club for creative folks like you and me. I haven’t figured out all the details, but I will be giving away something to a few lucky book clubers every week. I should have the full prize list later this week. But I do know Craft&Vision, ThinkTank Bags, and Nik Software will be contributing something every Monday!

Today’s Photo

It seemed appropriate to share a photo of my book bag, or should I say eBook bag. When my iPad is loaded up, this bag is easily carrying around 100 books or so.

Photographer’s Note

This is a blend of two of the same images. The top image I applied some Nik HDR Efex Pro ‘Granny’s Attic’ preset, then I blended in the non-HDRed image for the background. I shot it using a Nikon D7000 and Nikon 24-70.

    I don’t know if this is the place you want others to mention books that have inspired them, but I’ll just go for it… A book that really inspired me when it came out in 1996 or so and is still really intense to peruse is “F**K YOU HEROES” by Glen E. Friedman. Not landscape photos, but very iconic images…

  3. I love this image. I can imagine you were wearing your Indian Jones outfit while you were out shooting. :-)
