A lot of eBooks have been coming out lately, and I just don’t have the time or energy to do full reviews for all of them. Here are three books that came out on the last few weeks that I probably won’t have time for a full book review. You can see other book and eBook reviews in my archives.

This book from dPS is all about travel photography. It is designed to give you the skill and inspiration to take riveting travel images. Written by Mitchell Kanashkevich, the book is divided into four main sections: preparation, composition, light, and making photos. It covers topics such as preparing for your trip, how to communicate effectively with your viewers, creative uses of light, and various other tips for producing great travel photos.
This eBook is a collection of over 30 photographs created along themes of loneliness and solitude over a 5-day period in Venice in May 2010, and followed by a discussion of the Why and the How behind the images. The first half of the book is a wonderful collection of photos, while the second half dives into the process behind each photo. This includes technical settings along with some important background information from the photographer.
This eBook is an introduction to digital video for stills photographers. Written by Trevor Meier, both a professional stills photographer and film-maker, this eBook discusses the core issues of motion storytelling. Topics include vision, story, sequence, and technique (which is a big one that covers exposure control, frame rate, motion rendering, DOF control, and so on). The end of the book also talks about basic equipment like cameras, lenses, filters, tripods, and sound.
