Our friend and contributor Guy Tal has been rather busy of late. In addition to publishing a new ebook, Guy is running a ten week creative photo contest, with new themes and prizes every week. Here's the lowdown on Guy's new projects:
First, Guy's new ebook. Having previously brought us Creative Landscape Photography, Guy has now turned his attention to image processing, and has published Creative Processing Techniques for Nature Photography. Both of Guy's books are great reads, and are rather unique in the ebook field. Guy not only brings us technical tips and know-how on his subject matter, but also discusses the mental side of things–the vision and the thought processes behind creative images. My favorite feature of Guy's books is that he includes thought-provoking exercises for the reader to perform, creating ebooks that are not only informative, but interactive.
In Creative Processing Techniques for Nature Photography, Guy covers subjects such as: Comfort Zones, Dynamic Visualization, Workflow & Analysis, RAW Processing, Global & Local Adjustments, Output and more.
Check out both of Guy's books in the OPG Store here.
Second, Guy has also been busy putting on a Creative Photography Contest, and OPG is a proud sponsor.
This contest will run 10 weeks, with a new theme and a new batch of prizes every week. At the end of the contest, there will be a Grand Prize Winner for lots of gear goodies.
The first week has just ended, and Guy says he received lots of entries, and some incredible images. He'll be posting the winners and entries on his site as the contest goes along.
