New books on digital/photography

Everyone wants a digital camera for Christmas. Learning to use it – mastering the technical to your creative advantage – is another thing completely. Two of my favorite new books bring more to their respective “table of contents” than simply the mastering the techniques, adding personal reflections on photography’s past, present and future to their teachings. AND, their incredible artwork. Both individuals are presenters at all major industry events, both are widely-respected as great teachers, and authors.

So, ladies first:

WINDOW SEAT: The Art of Digital Photography & Creative Thinking by JULIEANNE KOST
and
ON DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY by STEPHEN JOHNSON.

Don’t miss these inspiring and resourceful recent publications.
