PRE-PUB SPECIAL - “25 Examples - The Making and Storeis Behind the Photographs.” It is always intriguing to hear or read what the thought process was of a particular image you like. Thus, here is my take on a group of photos I think other photographers can use to learn a new technique, camera setting or mind-set for creating great images.

Every picture does have a story behind it and that story along with the technical considerations to get what was desired can lead to others possibly being able to move forward with their own photographic endeavors. I myself learn more when I see an example of how to do something. As photographers, we are visual in nature and when putting the seeing alongside the how, why, and what circumstance can lead to an aha moment where you can then say “I get it. I want to go and try that for myself.”

In this book, I try to pass on the thought process of why a particular composition was made for a landscape or nature photo or what I was looking for with a wildlife image in order for you to be able to go out and do the same thing.

Pre-pub pricing of $9.95. When completed, the price will be $12.95. This PDF book will be emailed out upon completion for those who take advantage of the pre-pub pricing.
