New eBook on Wildflower Photography!

Wildflower Photography (eBook)Today, I’m happy to announce that the new edition of my eBook on wildflower photography is now available.

The eBook is a complete guide to photographing wildflowers with a digital SLR. It will teach you how to take stunning photos of wildflowers, and how to post-process them in Adobe Photoshop (CS 4 or later and Elements 8 or later).

Here’s a sneak peak of what you’ll learn in this 65-page eBook:

  • What equipment you need for photographing wildflowers
  • How to set up your shot to create pleasing compositions
  • How to choose the right aperture to ensure your flowers are in focus and tack sharp
  • How to find the perfect exposure by using tools like the RGB histogram
  • How to maximize sharpness by carefully positioning your camera (NEW for this Edition)
  • How different lighting conditions affect the look of flowers (NEW for this Edition)
  • How to create powerful compositions by using color theory (NEW for this Edition)
  • How to get more depth of field by using focus stacking (NEW for this Edition)
  • How to post-process your photos with Adobe Photoshop to reduce noise, increase contrast and saturation, make small adjustments to exposure, and make your images super sharp (tutorials apply to both Photoshop CS 4+ and Photoshop Elements 8+)
  • Learn by example with 12 example photos (five of them are new to this edition). Each example includes the camera settings that were used, as well as a complete story of how the image was made and post-processed in Photoshop.
  • Photos you’ll learn about in the book

    Below are just some of the photographs you’ll learn about in this eBook. And, hopefully by the time you finish reading, you’ll be able to take photos like this too!

    5. @Jan – you should be able to just click the “download now” button. But, if that doesn’t work, then try right clicking on the button and do a “save target as….” or “save link as…”

    6. I am trying to setup an account as a perk in my meetup group with the proceeds going to support the meetup pages do you have any suggestion on setting it up . When I uses the tag given to me by E-Junkie it sends me to learning by example not to the Photographing Flowers. And is there a cookie or something that informs you where the buyer is coming from re commission
