NYIP Launches New Photography Book Series

Here at NYIP, we're proud of our long history providing photography education to enthusiasts and budding professionals all over the world. It's what we do, and we love it.

And now, we're excited to announce that we've launched our new photography book series, NYIP's Everyday Photography Guides, for anyone interested in photography!

The first two titles in the series are "Top Travel Tips from Ten Pro Photographers" and "Top Ten Secrets for Perfect Baby & Child Portraits". The goal of the Everyday Photography Guides is to relate professional tips and techniques to amateur photographers and photography enthusiasts who help to get more out of their cameras in day to day life.

Top Travel Tips from Ten Pro Photographers is written by NYIP Director Chuck DeLaney, with helpful input from ten successful travel photographers. Each photographer shares secrets and advice that they have learned throughout their careers, and relates them in an easy to understand way so that anyone with a digital camera can begin to take better photos of their travels and vacations. They openly share favorite photographs and advice to help hobbyist and amateur photographers come back from their outings and trips with excellent photographic art for their walls, websites, blogs, and family albums.

Top Ten Secrets for Perfect Baby & Child Portraits is written by Clay Blackmore, an innovator in the world of photography and portraiture and one of the elite Canon Explorers of Light. In the book, designed for parents and grandparents, he provides insight, background, tips, and guidelines for his ten favorite types of baby and child photographs, all based on lighting situations ranging from window light to setting up a makeshift home studio with one or more lighting sources. Color photographs from his professional and personal portfolio illustrate each step and provide inspiration.
