In this book you'll discover straightforward solutions to 7 of the most common technical roadblocks photographers experience.
I’ve made all the photography mistakes there are to make, and more. Combine that with no formal training in photography and you could say I started out late to the race.
It took me years of trial and error to discover real-world solutions to my technical roadblocks, but like learning the scales on the guitar is necessary before you can begin phrasing, once I did I was on my way to consistently getting better images. And by learning these simple solutions you can too.
In this book you’re going to learn how to avoid common technical roadblocks, because I really believe that if you can move past the technical aspects of photography you can focus your precious time and energy on that which pays the highest dividends: seeing creatively and executing your vision onto film or pixels.
Although I have no formal training in photography I did learn a great deal (and I believe you can, too) from at least two photographers who I’ll mention here: Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell. Sure, their photographic work is seminal, however they also left in their wake another legacy: their thoughts and writings on photography, which have influenced me and therefore what’s in this book directly.
I have to give a huge thanks to all of the members of the photography community I began in San Francisco which now has over 1,000 members - Landscape Photography SF. Through this community I have shared and learned a great deal, and only through the process of constant feedback is this book even possible.
