Take Better Photos Now – Michael Kitada

“I’m Michael and photography is my life.

I’ve worked as a staff photographer at the Orange County Register. I teach photography at Cal Baptist University and taught at UCLA, too.   My blog is about photographic inspiration, inside the mind of the photographer as images are made. I talk about the process and images that I’ve made and fresh ones that I am shooting now, too.

Trick Photography
I highly recommend Hacking Photography to anyone who has been procrastinating learning photography.  If you want to get good fast, this is your book.

Raw Street Photography from Los Angeles – Eric Kim

“One of my visions when it comes to photography is the idea of “Open Source Photography,” or making photography accessible to all. One of the things that I hate is the elitism that photography can often create, which makes photography more difficult for photographers from all skill levels and backgrounds to participate. I want to tear down those walls, and dedicate myself to sharing all of my insight, knowledge, and information that I have learned about street photography (and photography in general) and share it with the masses. Whether it be how I take my photos, how I convert my images to black and white, or the plugins or Lightroom 3 presets that I use. Join me on this journey and see where it takes me.”
