If you really want to improve in photography there is no 2 roads, the main key is, of course, to practice. But when you can’t be taking picture and you have some free time you can still do something. Either study the pictures that makes you go WOW or take a photography book and read.
This might not be new for some of you but I just discovered this ebook today, the hard copy price is $19.95 but Canon is making it available for download in PDF format for free.
If you are among the numerous people who liked Gordon’s Photography Cheat Sheet or all Canon lenses spreadsheet, than I am sure you will find this one useful too.
Many of us like to have a soft copy of our photography manuals even if we still have the original hard copy that shipped with the camera.
The Canon EOS 30D manual, for instance, can be downloaded from Canon’s website. But there is also a pocket guide that ships with the Canon EOS 30D and this one has no soft copy.
Canon Europe is offering free photography sessions in various European cities given by celebrity photographer Andy Earl and other photography experts.
They will share with us their stories, techniques tips and tricks.
“Two shows are offered. The Amateur sessions will appeal to photographers of all levels looking to improve their skills. The Advanced shows have the same structure and content but with slightly more emphasis on commercial photography.”

I don’t know if it ever happened to you, but if you lose/damage the Canon Software CD that ships with your Canon EOS DSLR getting your hands on a new one won’t be that easy unless you know someone that owns a Canon DSLR.
“Easy” you’d say “I will only download all the software from the net”, well wrong since those softwares are not available on the internet but only their updates.
Of course you can always give Canon a call and you will probably be charged for the new CD or use one of these two simple tricks for both Windows and OSX
