Hey I'm Josh, I'm Photographer in Chief here at ExpertPhotography, and I'm in charge of making sure that we provide you with the best content from the most knowledgeable photographers in the world. Enjoy the site :)
Photography may be used both to capture reality and to produce a work of art. This work of art can be of just about anything, including people, products, places, animals, objects, or events. Photography and video have advanced to such a degree that anyone of us, for a modest investment of capital, can own the requisite equipment to make productions at the same level of quality as the pros. And most of us already hold in our hands computers capable of producing and editing hundreds of rich still and moving images.
The first 2 sites which we are listing below hold a list of various free photography ebooks, hence making the total number of free ebooks to 52. Do take note that quite a number of these sites require you to subscribe first before downloading. Otherwise, most of them do provide direct download in PDF formats. These ebooks cover wide variety of topics from lighting, types of cameras, different niches in photography, and many more.
Hope this compilation will help you in your photography career or simply a knowledge builder for your hobby.
