The “Guides”: Updated And Better Than Ever!

Last year, we introduced “Guides” – single-page resources that contain links to all of the articles and goodies on Photography Concentrate that relate to big topics, like marketing, lighting and workflow. They’re designed to help you dig into those topics quickly, saving you from having to sift through all of our articles to get what you need.

We’ve just finished updating the Guides, so that they’re easier to navigate and they contain all the latest posts and other resources that have appeared on Photography Concentrate over the last year. Woo!

The Essential Guide to Photography Slang

When you first get into photography, you might feel like you’ve entered a different world. Everyone talks funny, and seems obsessed over completely mundane details, like the speed of glass.

New Resources And Free Stuff Pages!

Hey friends!

Today’s post doesn’t exist so much as a post, but instead as a couple new pages we’ve added, which you’ll see at the top of the site.

Free Stuff!

If you’re new here, you might have missed our 5 Days of Free event that we held back in March. We created a bunch of really awesome free resources, like an e-book, presets, album templates, and more and gave ‘em away. Freesies.

We know that stuff can still be really useful, so we’ve created the Free Stuff! page, where you can access it all. Whenever we create more free stuff (like the posters from last week!) it’ll go up there.

So if you haven’t gotten all your free goodies yet, make sure to click here and go do that now!

Resources

We are also trying to create some really great resources for photographers. We have The Book List, The Documentary List, and we’ve just added a HUGE list of links to services and products that we’ve found helpful in our business. We’ve put that all on the Resources page for easy access.

So whenever you’re looking for a new book to read, a movie to watch, or are searching for a great album company or some productivity software, make sure to hit up the Resources page.

The Ultimate Documentary List for Photographers

UPDATE: This is post is no longer current. Check out our Library for a much better look at awesome documentaries, and books to inspire!

How much fun is it to watch a movie, and actually learn at the same time?? Super fun! Extra points when the movie is about photography!!

Here is the ultimate list of documentaries for photographers! We’ll only post movies we’ve actually watched, and update the list as we watch new ones.

The Book List for Photographers

If you’re a photographer and/or a business-person, your education never stops. Once you commit to life-long learning, the sky is the limit!

Books have always, and will always, be one of the best ways to guide your personal learning. They offer the focused and dense information necessary for true understanding. Forums, blogs, and workshops should come as supplements to good ol’ fashioned book learnin’.
