One of the best photographers around and one of the nicest blokes too, David duChemin is about to release a book that you just can't afford not to have in your collection. I've trawled my way through a good few books trying to learn things, pick up hints and tips, or just be inspired by the photos inside. Very few have had any real substance and most of the time i've come away thinking my money could have been much better spent on a train ticket and a couple of hours practice.
I'm half way through reading the sampler pdf that you can find on his site http://www.pixelatedimage.com/blog/2009/04/wtf/
and I can tell you already, this book is going to be an absolute stunner! Ok, so it's not much good for the environment and global warming could increase significantly as your bedside lamp is likely to be burning for a fortnight but, it'll be worth it in the long run. As Fred Pontin used to say (yes, I am that old
) "Book early!"
