eyePhone – New Craft & Vision ebook!

I have it, haven’t read it yet except for the first few pages, but I get the feeling it will be good.  So if you have a phone on your camera and want to learn to take stronger photos, this will probably help.  It is only 45 pages long and has large pictures every other page, like the photo below.  In a few days this e-book will cost $5, but you can get it now and get it here for $4, until 11:59PM PST May 27.  Just use the code EYEPHONE4 at checkout.

 I really like Craft & Vision books, and the last time they had a sale I bought a bunch, like 5 or 6 ebooks.  I’ve read most of them, but will be rereading several of them again, like the titles Ten and Ten More, which offer ten things you can do to improve your photography without having to buy more gear.  Well, Craft & Vision is having another sale that ends at 11:59 PM PST May 27! You have 3 more days.  If you buy 5 or more pdf Ebooks, you can get 20% off by using this code at checkout EYEPHONE20.

Also available at a discounted price till 11:59 PM PST May 27 is “The duChemin Bundle”!  This bundle includes 7 Ebooks, all written by David duChemin (I love his books!), and all of them for just $19 (normally it would cost $35 if you bought each separately).  This bundle includes Ten, Ten More, Drawing the Eye, Chasing the Look and 3 other Ebooks.  This is the bundle I would get if I were you, cause I already have most of these, and they are really good.  If you are interested in getting the discount, use the code DAVID19 at checkout.

Tip #4: Learn The Digital Darkroom

On black friday I took advantage of Craft & Vision’s 50% discount on their e-book bundles.  One of the books I purchased was “Ten More” by David duChemin.  “Ten More” is the “sequel” to “Ten” which is a book on ten things you can do to improve your craft – photography – without buying more gear.  Tip #4 in the book Ten More is Learn the Digital Darkroom, basically, get to know, become familiar, be comfortable with, really know how to use your post processing software.  Well, in my case, that is Aperture 3 – so I purchased the training videos (this isn’t gear) “Work Like A Pro Photographer in Aperture 3” by Joseph Linaschke and Video2Brain over at Aperture Expert.  You can read more about this at Aperture Expert website.  I just started watching some of it this evening, and so far so good.  Today being Cyber Monday, if you sign up to the Aperture Expert newsletter, you can take advantage of a 33% discount on any order of $20 or more at the Aperture Expert store, by simply entering the code byo33 at checkout.

The photo below was taken with the Pentax DA-L 55-300 mm with the Raynox DCR-150 clipped to the front.  I don’t remember if I used a tripod.  I remember being delightfully surprised at how well this image turned out while post processing it.  Enjoy!

So here are the discount codes:

Again, I got the word from PhotographyBB.  So I also suggest you sign up to their newsletter and their free monthly magazine, which is pretty good.  Hey, it’s free!  If you are interested in photography or even art in general, some of these books may get that flame going again if you’ve lost it.  By the way, I am in no way affiliated with Craft & Vision, I just thought I would share what I think is an awesome deal!
