Think Before You Shoot

This is an excellent book for photographers of all skill levels. It’s a short book with simple, easy to follow suggestions for making stronger photographs. The author, Roxanne Overton, was one of our competition judges a couple years back, and I’ve always admired not just her images, but her thoughts about photography. It’s available for $6.99 as a Kindle book through Amazon, or as an iBook at Apple iTunes.
