New eBooks Launched on Flatbooks!

Light painting and night photography specialist Troy Paiva (AKA Lost America) has finally written a “How To” book. It explains in full detail his easy to learn techniques for creating elaborate studio-style lighting effects with a few simple flashlights and a single, pocket-sized strobe.

All the secrets of his working process, never revealed before; from light settings and gel types, to white-balance methodology and post-production techniques are revealed.


The Advanced Guide to Photographing Waterfalls and Streams is a comprehensive guide to photographing water in nature. The ability to change shutter speeds and create silky smooth water opens up a window into the creative side of landscape photography.

The aim of this eBook is to propel the beginning landscape photographer to an advanced level, and to give the advanced photographer the tools to be successful.


This in-depth guide to histograms provides all the information you’ll need to learn to make the most of one of the most powerful – and often overlooked – tools in digital photography.

Professional nature photographers and accomplished teachers Varina and Jay Patel will walk you through the process of reading, interpreting, and using histograms – while you are in the field and during post-processing in Adobe Photoshop.


The goal of The Digiphoto Quick Start Guide is to give a quick orientation to the basics of digital photography so you can start having fun capturing technically and aesthetically pleasing images with your digital camera.

The skills presented in the guide will give you a solid foundation on which to build your photographic knowledge. This knowledge will help you creatively express yourself in new ways through your digital photography.



Behind the Scenes Video

Abandoned Copper Mine in Virgin Gorda

Here's a video we shot on our recent trip to Virgin Gorda. We got up at the crack of dawn to shoot at an abandoned copper mine. This coppermine on the edge of Virgin Gorda was a great find thanks to Stuck On Earth! I knew about many of the main places around the island to take photos, but I may have missed this place if I wan’t using the app. You can see the final result of this shoot here.
