Book Watch: Coming up in digital photography (not yet released)
Now it is time to look at some of the camera and photography-related books that are in the pipeline! They are coming up, but they are not here just yet! We spotlight a handful, and feature some more in the lightning round. Please note that this is just a sampling, there is a whole lot more coming up, and we obviously can't feature everything in one post.
Joe McNally doesn't need a ...map to find his way around the world of photography. His latest book is Hot Shoe Diaries (New Riders, 320p), talking about photography with Nikon Speedlights, but a lot of the things discussed obviously apply beyond the world of Nikon. You can learn more about the author by checking out his blog.
Digital has changed nature photography, and with that in mind, the Mountain Trail Photo team is publishing The Ultimate Guide to Digital Nature Photography (Mountain Trail Press, 192p). You can learn more about the Mountain Trail Photo team by visiting their website.
Meanwhile, fellow blogger Jeff Revell has been busy working on two books on two of the popular mid-range DSLRs, the Canon 50D and Nikon D90 (Peach Pit Press, 288p). You can learn more about the author by checking out his PhotoWalkPro blog.
If you are a fan of Bryan Peterson, rejoice! He has a new book coming up as well, Understanding Close-up Photography: Creative Close Encounters with or without a Macro Lens (AMphoto, 160p). As far as we know, he does not have an active blog.
Photoshop-guru Scott Kelby is bringing out the third volume of his "Digital Photography Book" series (PeachPit, 240p). There is a cliffhanger at the end of volume #2 so be sure to check it out first ;-) You can find out about all the many projects Scott Kelby is involved with by checking his blog and his new Nikon D-Town project.
We continue this spotlight segment with the Canon 5D Mark II Magic Lantern Guide (Lark Books, 240p), which is written by Michael Guncheon and will feature the lovely 5DMk2, in typical "lantern style". Speaking of the 5DMk2, be sure to check our 5DMk2 diary-turned-blog.
The Official Inaugural Book of our last best hope to get out of the neo-dark-ages is coming out, by Five Ties Publishing, and 192 pages long. Ironically, release date is set for April 1st. Photographers credited on this book are Peter Souza, David Hume Kennerly and Robert McNeely.
Vincent Versace has a new book, Welcome to Oz, which takes a "A Cinematic Approach to Digital Still Photography with Photoshop CS4". For more on the photographer, be sure to check his blog. (Corrected: In the original post, we got confused and blended Vincent Versace with Vincent Laforet. Thanks to our reader for the correction!).
Since we featured a Canon full-frame DSLR, we should also featured a Nikon full-framer, so here is the Mastering the Nikon D700 (Rocky Nook, 250p) by Darrell Young and James Johnson.
