Mastering Street Photography


Street photography has a tradition dating back over a century, and today’s digital world finds it enjoying a renaissance—yet there is little expert advice available. This is a practical guide to capturing the candid moments that reveal life at its most dramatic, absurd, or beautiful. Brian Lloyd Duckett demonstrates how the successful street photographer needs to be an unseen observer, with the camera a mirror of everyday scenes and unaware subjects. A guide to equipment and technical skills leads into lessons in finding inspiration, developing projects, and composing different subjects and scenes—laying the foundations for you to impose your personality on your photography and develop your own distinctive style. The book also addresses such key issues as staying safe and within the law when photographing on the street, and the art of building an audience for your images.

Photography Demystified – For Kids!: A Kids Guide and Parents Resource for Fun and Learning Photography Together!


Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS! A Kid’s Guide and Parent’s Resource to Fun and Learning Photography Together, the fourth in the Photography Demystified series, is specifically designed for parents to read and follow with their children to create a fun-filled bond and hobby within the family. Many of the projects can be done even with the simplest of cameras, including those in smartphones.

This book is also very much for pre-teen and teenagers to be able to work with on their own, when needed, AND with their parents, so everyone can enjoy their time together!

This is a photography book that children of all ages and parents alike will learn from. Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS caters to younger children working with their parents in the simpler projects, but mostly to children in upper elementary school (ages 8–10), pre-teens (ages 11–12), and early teens (ages 13–14). But don’t be fooled—this book will ALSO help the adult learn photography too!

I wrote this book with the idea that parents and kids could have a fun time learning together. This book is NOT about the “perfect photograph” but rather the journey of learning photography in a fun way as a family.

Because this book is meant for children and their parents to explore and learn photography together, through a child’s eyes, I’ve formatted it differently than the previous books in the Photography Demystified series. In this book, you’ll find over 50 photography projects and step-by-step instructions on how to do them, as well as photographic visuals.

Having taught thousands of people photography and created an international best-selling series on the subject, I have been asked countless times about how to help younger children learn photography. So I’ve written this book.

Most photography books are not appropriate for children because they concentrate on technical information to such an extent that children’s “joy” and “wonder” of depicting the world through photographs get lost in all the “photo jargon” of shutter speeds and F-stops. So, that’s not what you’ll find in this book.

My philosophy is that children need the freedom to be able to “see” and “share” how they see, and their wonder of it all should be acknowledged in a safe and non-critical way, first and foremost.

THEN, upon that foundation, other aspects, including some of the technical aspects, can be brought in to enhance their experience and increase their knowledge. We MUST not put our filters on them! The first rule is to help them develop a love for “seeing” through photographs.

This book is written for parents to experience with their children, according to HOW THEIR CHILDREN SEE THE WORLD. Because of this, many of the projects in the book can be done with the simplest of cameras. This is very purposeful.

Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS! A Kid’s Guide and Parent’s Resource to Fun and Learning Photography Together has been written with the hope that the special sense of wonder children have, and parents cherish, can bring both together through the joy and learning of photography.

My hope is that your children will fall in love with “seeing” through the means of photography, and you, as a parent, will see through your children’s eyes. In doing so, it will give you a bond so that together you experience wonder, joy, and creation, all in expectation that this experience will provide a precious, lifelong memory that is captured forever through the photos you take.

Features of each reflector
The silver side is very reflective and brightens both shadows and highlights, but does not change the color of the available light. The gold side works basically the same way, while adding a warmer color to the image.The white side brightens up the shadows to produce a softer light. It is not as bright as the silver side so you can get closer to your subject. The black side just the opposite, and is used to subtract light and create shadows in certain areas.

In the middle of the frame is a translucent material which is used as a diffuser. This side is usually held directly above the subject to soften the sun’s natural light. It will always go between the light source and the subject.

Near Home: Fantastic photographs sprinkled with Inspirational quotes (Soul Photography Book 2)


“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” (Les Brown)

The book “Near Home” is a work of art, not just a common collection of photos.

It is the second in a trilogy by photographer Tomer Peled.

One need not travel far and wide to see the wonders of creation. Whether someone is jogging or riding a bike, the movements, angles and even stillness all influence the way the photographer sees the object and captures it.

We are curious. Even near home, we curiously follow types of people and living creatures, and we learn. You look at the surrounding pattern, identify the right moment for the shot, master time, and learn to trust intuition and experience. You recognize people’s behaviors – when they are angry, irritated or what makes them happy.

The greatest power of these photos comes from the tiniest details of everyday life. As we go in life, we remain oblivious to many things as we pass them by, directing our gaze down towards the ground, not being present at the current moment.

The book “Near Home” brings us breath-taking photos, which let the reader take a view at reality through the artist’s eyes. It creates a connection between miraculous natural scenes and processed photos, all conceived through the lens of Tomer Peled, sprinkled with phrases and sentences for inspiration and awe.

Gift this book to yourself or to someone special!
