Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO: An Interactive Primer – Now Available!

Aperture, Shutter Speed, & ISO: A Primer To The Three Key Principles Of Photography is now available for the Apple iPad.

Aperture, Shutter Speed, & ISO: A Primer To The Three Key Principles Of Photography is an interactive eBook for iPad written for the beginner to intermediate photographer.

Ever wonder how photographers get those great shots? They’re not doing it in Auto Mode. The secret is using manual controls and it’s an easy lesson to learn.

There are three manual settings that control the final outcome of your composition: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. We call them The Trio. Learn each of these and how they influence one another and you’ll be shooting masterpieces in no time.

This book takes a simple, straight-forward approach to each point of the exposure triangle. Large graphics, interactive animations, videos, calculators, image galleries and more are used to help the reader retain the fundamental principles of The Trio. Reference graphics and links are also provided for further study.

Purchase your copy for $2.99 at the Apple iBookstore.

2013 Piedmont Gardeners’ Tour Photo Booklet

The 2013 Piedmont Gardeners’ Tour was excellent this year! Five homes participated – all gorgeous and in full bloom. The weather was spectacular and everything was perfectly organized (as usual). A special thanks goes out to each of the homeowners who were gracious enough to share their prized gardens with a very appreciative community!

I took several hundred photographs during the tour and collected 20 of my favorites into a small photo booklet, pictured here. I’m mailing one to each homeowner as a tiny token of thanks.

If you’re interested in picking one up, please let me know!

The Trio Cheat Sheet

The Trio Cheat Sheet is an infographic I made for my first book, DSLR Fundamentals: An Interactive Introduction To Photography.

It’s a visual reference guide for manual settings of the exposure triangle: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. A quick glance gives you an idea of how each setting affects the others. It should help solve problems with difficult shooting scenarios that, at first, might seem impossible.

Go ahead and click it to open in the modal window gallery, then click the button in the upper right to expand it in fullscreen view. Right-click on the enlarged image to save it to your desktop. Better yet, save it to your phone – that way it will be handy on your next photography outing.
