The Creative Art of Photography


What's inside? Lots of stuff that I have written about on my blog, lots of techniques that I teach at my workshops, but mostly how and why I approach creative photography. Below in the table of contents you will see a section for in-camera blurs, this eBook does not cover everything that you need to know about blurs as I already wrote that book "A Guide to Creative Blurs" but it does give you ideas and helps to get you started. In-fact if you own all of my previous eBooks you will probably not need this one as there is a lot of overlap--but I hope it will give you just the right amount of inspiration.
