Bridging the gap between the vision in your head and the resulting image can sometimes be a frustrating experience. However, if you have a passion for photography and a feel for your gear, it can be done. Steve Simon teaches you how in his book, The Passionate Photographer: Ten Steps Toward Becoming Great.
Simon distills four years of photo school down into this 264 page guide. With the author/photographer's tips and advice you'll learn the ten crucial steps every photographer needs to take. Core concepts include: working on personal projects, shooting a large volume of focused work, concentration, strategies for approaching strangers, and others. Additionally, the book includes "Lessons Learned", inspiration and advice culled from Simon's 30 plus years in the industry.
