I find it uneventful, unproductive and boring to sit and wait for the skies to clear. I went out looking for books. I’m tired of paying late fees at the library and need new reading material. I sought google maps looking for used bookstores near me. I went to five different stores in three towns. I was able to pickup 12 books for less than $18.
Next I stopped by the library to return two books that were 3 days late. I already had a fine of $3, so my total in late fees was $3.60. I paid the fines and put holds on five more books that were in storage. I then found the two books above. I picked up the Creative Composition to learn more about how a shot is composed for better stock submissions. I grabbed Capturing Light with the hope of getting a better understanding of how a camera sees light.
Last month I made the purchase of the book Photographic Lighting, by David Brooks. I haven’t got a crack at it yet but it was a purchase, so no late fees. Ten of the books I purchased were for scouting possible shots, as well as seeing a larger collection of what other have shot in specific locations.
I will definitely let everyone know if these books were any good and worth a read.
