Photographer and writer Shawn M. Tomlinson, author of the Photo Curmudgeon column and books, explains in detail the usefulness of prime lenses for photographers who typically only use zoom lenses in... More > this expanded edition. He considers the uses of prime lenses, the advantages as well as the disadvantages, and provides a conversational approach to making the move to this type of lens. Prime lenses are sharper and have less distortion, less chromatic aberration and brighter maximum apertures than zooms, he reports.

Vol. 19: Photography: Beyond Semi-Pro: The Nikon D800 & D800E By Shawn M. Tomlinson

I have been somewhat reluctant to write about the absolute best digital single-lens reflex camera I have ever used, the Nikon D800E. The reason is that I like to write about older cameras that... More > have become cheaper to buy and use for the frugal photographer. Although some of the cameras I have written about were terribly expensive when first released, by now they are reasonably cheap. For example, I’ve written books about the Canon EOS 1DS/1DS Mark II, the Nikon D1 and the Nikon D2X. These all are pro DSLRs and as such were released at prices ranging from $6,000 to $8,000. By now, however, the most you will pay is around $400 for any of them. In a few years, the Nikon D800E, too, will be much cheaper and an obvious choice for the frugal photographer. No matter the price, the D800 and D800E are two of the best DSLRs ever made. Either will change you as a photographer in fantastic ways.< Less
Vol. 04: Photography: The Black & White Book By Shawn M. Tomlinson

Photographer and writer Shawn M. Tomlinson, author of the Photo Curmudgeon column and books, makes creating black and white and toned photos simple with this how-to guide. “In a world dominated... More > by colorful images, black and white and toned photographs can stand out as something different, something somehow more beautiful,” Tomlinson writes. “To really work in the 21st century, a black and white or toned image must be special. It must express something not there in color. There must be a reason to change the reality of the image by turning it grayscale, not just that you can. All that said, there is absolutely nothing like a truly great black and white image.” The author covers the basics of B&W and toned photos including processing techniques, printing, presentation in eBooks, and much more. This is an expanded and revised edition of the original eBook and trade paperback editions.< Less

Everybody gives out tips for better photography. Well, maybe not your boss or the guy who fixes your furnace (although mine does), but most photography websites, forums and magazines fill their pages... More > with tips for becoming a better photographer. There’s a reason there are so many tips out there: photographers want them. On the other hand, we who have some little knowledge like to give them, too. Most people like to pass on what they’ve learned. I’ve been a photographer for nearly four decades. I’ve published thousands of photographs. I write a photography column (Photo Curmudgeon). I love photography. I read tips from other photographers often. Sometimes, I read something new, or at least put in a new way so that it sparks an idea. No one can tell you how to develop your photographer’s eye. Only you can figure that out. What I can do is give you some pointers about how to develop your own photographer’s eye, and how to get better as a photographer.< Less
Retro Camera Buying Guide: Getting Serious About Photography… On the Cheap! Expanded and Revised By Shawn M. Tomlinson

A lot has changed since I wrote and published this first volume of what became this guide series. One thing hasn’t. I still have the same enthusiasm and joy in photography I had way back at the... More > beginning of the series. I have a lot more knowledge and experience now and, occasionally even get close to taking good photographs. That’s the thing, see. I didn’t know a lot when I originally wrote this guide. I had been working in photography since 1982 professionally. Everything I knew, pretty much, was self-taught. In general, that’s still true. There’s no need for you to do it all by yourself, too, though. This book and this series are meant to help you get going with the basics fast. Yes, OK, I tend to relate my own experiences, but that, too, is meant to help you avoid some basic mistakes I made. And, perhaps, I write in a tad too friendly manner, but think of it as sitting down with me to have a friendly talk about a passion we share: Photography!< Less

Vol. 26: Medium-Format Photography: Getting Started By Shawn M. Tomlinson
Hardcover: $35.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Simply put, medium-format photography is quite a bit more complex than shooting with 35mm film SLRs or 35mm-style DSLRs. It takes a bit more skill — and experience — to handle... More > medium-format cameras. Not only do you need to learn to think differently about how you shoot, but you also have a whole new type of equipment to learn. Medium-format cameras produce bigger images, which allows for more detail and greater enlargement. And because they, in general, were designed for professional photographers, the lenses tend to be of better quality that most 35mm lenses, which also adds to the detail in the images. In this book, we’ll take a look at medium-format SLRs and TLRs, and we’ll even touch upon some other types. We’ll also consider a few lenses, although these largely are a matter of choice. And there are far fewer choices for medium-format cameras than for other types. Time to do some weight training and heft those medium-format cameras and lenses into position. Let’s go.< Less
