Now my question/favor is this.. :> What books have you read, re: photography styles, photoshop editing, etc.. when you were just starting? LINKS? :) maybe you can give me a list! :) I am a certified newbie but I am so excited to learn! Thank you in advance and i hope you get more and more $$$ and love and sunshines.

    Hello there! Thanks a lot! Regarding your question, I’m sorry but I don’t really read books for photography, tho I love scanning and browsing different visual inspirations ‘cause seeing beautiful photos encourages me to create something. Also, I learn more thru experience and whenever I wanna try something, I search online then try the technique or ask my friends about it. Though when I had an interview with Jay Tablante, he mentioned that one of the books that really helped him understand the principles of photography was “Light Science and Magic”. As for online inspirations, I would usually visit theones2watch.com or search my fave fashion photographers like Mert and Marcus, Steven Meisel, Camilla Akrans, Mario Sorrenti, Zemotion, etc. Hope my answer helps! Sorry I’m not really geeky when it comes to the technical side of photography. It might also help if you watch videos of shoots or attend shoots of professional photographers, it’s pretty interesting. Good luck with your photography! Just keep shooting. God Bless :)
