Strobist Photo Trade Secrets volumes one and two are all about giving you the inspiration and tools to help make your photographs the best they can be. It doesn't take hundreds of pages of instructions or piles of complicated theories to take great photographs. Photo Trade Secrets uses microlessons — each with a simple-to-understand diagram, tips, and a clear description accompanying an inspiring image — so you can spend less time reading and more time shooting.
Photo Trade Secrets postcard books are high-quality trade paperbacks, with perforated pages of thick card stock — so you can simply tear them out and take individual microlessons with you when you shoot.
Whether you duplicate the photos in the book or use the techniques as a take-off point for creating your own dynamic family photos, killer commercial shots, or eye-catching masterworks, you'll find Photo Trade Secrets to be the fastest, most fun and effective way to take your photography to the next level.
