August 17th, 2012 by Robert Rodriguez Jr.

Editor’s note:  Frequent blog contributor and pro photographer Robert Rodriguez Jr. has kindly made his new ebook FREE for a limited time!  See Robert’s post below for a description and for download details.

It feels great to announce the release of my ebook “Insights from Beyond the Lens: Inside the Art and Craft of Landscape Photography.” It’s based on many of my previous blog posts and rewritten to flow as a single short book. I’ve added new images with background information on how I made them, and an updated resources section that highlights other great books and websites for further reading and inspiration.

Two Versions Available

In addition to a PDF version, I’ve also created an iBooks multi-touch version. It contains full screen views of all the images (compatible with Retina display), interactive galleries, and two videos. You’ll need an iPad (any version) and the free iBooks app to download it from the iBook Store.

I used iBooks Author to create the ebook which was a fantastic experience and lots of fun. I love the interactive capabilities and options to create rich media, and I’m really excited about making new books with it in the future.

Best of all, both versions will be available for free for a limited time as my way of sharing with all of you. Your support on the blog has inspired me to keep writing and sharing everything I’ve learned over the years, so I hope you find it beneficial in your photography and life in general. While I write about photography, I think many of the concepts are universal and reflect my desire to live life as creatively as possible.

How To Get The Book

Both versions of the ebook are available completely free, no strings attached. If you find the book beneficial or useful  1) consider signing up for my newsletter if you haven’t already, and 2) share and pass it along to others you think can benefit from the ebook.

    Tried to download the PDF version and ended up in Dropbox. NO way to save as one normally would with Dropbox so I tried save as and the file was saved, but when I tried to open it, it said the file was damaged.

    Too bad, I did manage to view the book online and it was very nice, too bad it can’t be saved, at least not on my MAC.

    Managed to save file by right clicking on the PDF icon and choosing “DOWNLOAD LINKED FILE” , which saved the file to my download folder. When I clicked to open , the file opened. Must be something wrong with the way this is linking to Dropbox.
