Free Photography Books

By ltsolet / On / In Photography, Read, Stuff

Who doesn’t like free?  Rhetorical question, I know.  Sure I love free as much as the next person but you have have to ask yourself sometimes, if it’s free, is it any good.

Questions answered:  Yes.

So our friends at (from Australia) have compiled a list of Photography books that are 100% free, readily available and pretty darn good.  Some will change the game for you out there who have reached a plateau  and are looking to expand your vision.  For others, it will be a quick reminder of things that you have taken for granted over time.  And for still others, it will be a recommended reading list for those you are passing down your knowledge to.

Many of my friends here me say it all the time: “Knowledge wants to be free and finds a way to be so.”  This excellent compilation shows just that and the generosity of the photographic community in sharing what it knows.  Great job Mark!

Nik Collection Gone Free

By ltsolet / On / In Photography, Tech

So you know me.  I’m a Nik fan.  Was sad the day that Google purchased them because on of my favorite editing tools had been swallowed whole.  Not that is always a problem.  WAZE was purchased by Google and it gets better every release cycle.  Traffic be damned!  But Nik help a special place.  Nik took the need for Photoshop out of all but the most demanding post processing jobs.

And while I don’t know what the future has in store for the very innovative and beloved editing suite, it’s at least free, as in free free, for the time being.  Here’s to hoping that Google still has many more surprises in store for us with this image editing tool.  I for one would welcome more and better options that the CC Creative Suite.
