I’ve got a very happy announcement today. DIYP is releasing its first eBook – Home Studio Photography: Your Complete Guide To Building A Photography Studio At Home.
It’s a long name, I know, yet it grasps the essence of the book, providing a full, comprehensive reference book for building a Photography studio at home. You can grab a copy here, or read the details after the jump.
Expands and Compliments DIYP’s Lighting Section
Over the last year, one of the questions that I’ve been asked most is Why isn’t there a DIYP book? So I set out and along with the photography discussed; what book would be a great resource for readers that are both into DIY, Photography and Strobism? We thought that it would be a book that shows how a lighting-oriented photographer can setup a complete studio at his or her living room or garage.
Today, I am happy to bring a 6 months effort into conclusion.
Home Studio Photography is a brother read to the lighting section here on the blog. It contains some projects from the blog which have been revised and updated, along with 6 new projects never seen before.
It also gives me pleasant tingles to announce that Home Studio Photography features projects from guest contributors: Nick Wheeler, David Turman, Rui M Leal, Matt Haines, Megan Abshire, Sandra Freeman and Alex Campagna.
