Books

Here are a few books that I have found helpful, informative and inspiring ...... plus a few more that are still on my wishlist! And you will need some hardware / software ... Will look at some eBook options soon for those that prefer to travel light ...

Letraset1

Letraset Handbook 93 - Not easy to find this sort of catalogue these days but before digital fonts it was almost an essential. The concept of buying sheets of stick-down text has had its day. But typefaces are more important than ever - so this is still a great reference source.

More info .... as a result of feedback here is the index to the fonts it contains ....

Places

Living in Yorkshire, even if just at the southern edge, makes for a strong bias towards the county when looking of places to capture. And to encourage some others I started a flickr group - HDR Yorkshire. Over time it may grow to provide some new ideas for good locations - to visitors or locals alike.

In addition to the shared images group I also started a Yorkshire Heritage web site - and even though I never seem to get time to develop it - it does have some of the more obvious places of interest listed.

Finally Yorkshire has plenty of events - from sporting to historic to pop - that provide plentiful opportunities for photographers in any genre.

 

Online

It’s hard to know where to start, with so much available online ...

But how about checking out Stuck In Customs for some inspiration?.
