Just Published: A Complete Photography 101 Guide
Here’s another free ebook to add to your virtual bookshelf: Photography 101: The Basics of Photography and the Power of Visual Storytelling.
Blogging isn’t just about writing. The internet is a very visual space, and many of you are interested in experimenting more with photography — and understanding how your blog’s visual elements affect your readers’ overall experience. Many of you have cameras, and now own (and take pictures) with cameraphones — so it’s become even easier to tell stories with images. Here at The Daily Post, we provide resources on photoblogging in addition to tips that encourage regular writing habits — it’s all part of the blogging game.
Last year, a handful of guest photographers on WordPress.com contributed to our very popular Photography 101 series, which introduced the fundamentals of photography — from composition to light and focus to color.
Seasoned pros like Ming Thein shared his perspective on viewing the world with a photographer’s eye, Jeff Sinon offered practical tips on framing and orientation, Merilee Mitchell discussed the beauty of black and white imagery, a roundtable of photobloggers talked about their workflows and post-shooting processes — and more.
In this guide, we’ve compiled all of these posts in one place, so you can refer back to them as you experiment with your own camera — and use the tutorials as inspiration for your own work. It’s available in .epub, .mobi, and .pdf formats, so you can read it on your tablet, smartphone, reader, or computer. Download it now by clicking on the download links, or go to the download page. Enjoy!
Note that because the book features dozens of stunning photos taken by our experts, the file sizes are large and downloading them might take a few minutes:
