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!
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.
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.
