The Metal Moose & New eBooks from Friends

My Friends Have eBooks Too!

We’ve got a thriving community of photographers out there writing eBooks. I can’t possibly give everyone a link that asks, so I will do so randomly from time to time. A bit like a lottery!

Joseph’s Aperture eBook – Do you guys know of Joseph Linaschke? He’s a good friend that I first met when we co-hosted This Week in Photography. Anyway, he’s quite the Aperture expert. With Aperture 3 out, he’s got a nice eBook there that can help you get the most out of the software.

SAFARI, A Monograph – I’ve talked about David here on the site before. He’s a great guy and a hardcore photographer. This is the 2nd book in his “Print & Process” series (I think!). He fills the book with beautiful photos and then gives exact specifics about equipment, tools, and techniques. His eBooks get raving reviews, and there are several there to choose from!

The Metal Moose

After the book party in Chicago (thanks again for all of you that showed up!), we had a little photowalk the next day. Along the way, we stopped outside an office building near Michigan Avenue that had this enormous metal moose. I’m not a big fan of taking photos of art, but this was an exception.

As usual, I enjoyed meeting everyone on that photowalk and sharing stories and tricks. I think the next one we do will be at Burning Man, followed by London. Those will be great fun too! 🙂

  • Reflections are always great subject matter, but a whole moose worth of them? Wow!

  • It seems like you have most of the mistakes that you covered in your book in this photo. Looks like you didn’t put too much effort into this one.

  • Patrick

    Do you know when the London event will take place?
    Is a registration required to come?

  • What’s that song say?? “Turn me loose to goose a moose- turn me loose, turn me loose…”

  • I’m not a fan of taking photos of art either, but I absolutely love this moose! My living room actually has a lot of “moose” in it. Since I live in a cabin it sort of makes sense. And I am amazed that no one is walking around. Its a very nice photo with only a couple of people scattered in it.

  • Very cool! Hey, that’s me in front of the bus shooting this shot.[email protected]/4251067937/ and that’s Matt Wolin “under the bull”. Awesome. 🙂

  • Gail in Montana

    Great photo of that moose, Trey. I’m sure my niece has seen in as she works in Chicago. I’ll have to be sure and mention it on facebook. Don’t have too much fun at Burning Man, hubby says keep your clothes on, lol. Have a safe trip to London, can I fit in your suitcase? 😉 Take care, but don’t have tooo much fun(my hubby’s favorite saying) 🙂

  • What happend here? A lot of halos, harsh colors, noise.. Trey come on!

  • Gail in Montana

    make that she has seen it, lol, not in, didn’t proof read very well, 🙁

  • Thanks for the comments.

    Jonas and iArts – sometimes I crank it up for fun… 1/10 shots or so are more about line, shape, and contrast for me.

    Gail – I’ll try my best! hehe

  • casusan

    Cool shot Trey – know you had fun in Chicago! Burning Man & London sound super good too!

  • Michael

    Having lot’s of fun guessing which tools you are using with each picture. Love the effects.

  • Ahmed

    Decent composition but your images are definitely becoming 1 dimensional.

  • nice metal moose in HDR photo

  • Noah

    Hi Trey,

    Nice shot. when will you be in London? I’ll be there at the end of Aug for biz and would love to hook up for a photowalk if possible.


  • thx – Noah – probably early Sept ! 🙂

  • wil

    Gotta agree with Jonas and ahmed…and iarts…

    horrible shadows and seemed like a victim of batch processing with no attention paid to it…

  • woah the reflections are mint!!

  • lol terminator cow

  • I think other website proprietors should take this web site as an model, very clean and great user genial style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  • I grabbed a snap of that Moose a few years back.

    You gotta love Chicago.
    How about the Bean? That thing is awesome too!
