We really like the Craft and Vision ebooks, incredibly cheap £3.25 ($5), for such useful and inspiring books, beautifully illustrated and absolutely hit the marks for people who are photographers, those interested in photography rather than just those who happen to own a camera. If you like taking pictures then all of the Craft & Vision books would add to your skill and vision.
Looking to explore the creative possibilities behind the slow end of the shutter dial? Looking for some new ideas, or want a primer on intentional camera motion, panning, long exposure techniques, and the equipment to help you make it happen? SLOW is an excellent place to begin.
