At just a little shy of 100 pages, "A Visit to Yosemite" includes several dozen of Mike's favorite images shot throughout the weekend, and details not only the trip itself, but also the stories behind the pictures and how they were captured. There's plenty of information that will prove pertinent for anybody planning their own photo trip. Mike starts with a look at the equipment he brought along, or opted to leave at home. Among his kit were three cameras, selected to be representative of those from which the average shooter will select -- one fixed-lens model, one compact system camera, and one SLR. There's plenty of information on the setups used for each camera, and the advantages or disadvantages presented by each type during the trip. Mike's ebook also takes a look at some of the photographic dilemmas faced by his group each day, and details their solutions. Finally, he describes his workflow for offloading, backing up and processing the images, on returning home from the trip.
Regular readers of our IR's Digital Photography Newsletter will already be aware of "A Visit to Yosemite", which has been excerpted over the last several issues, but if you're not on the mailing list you can still get a taster in the newsletter archives. (And of course, you can sign up to receive the newsletter at the same time, so you won't be missing out in future! ;-) The ebook itself is available from Mike's website, in interactive Adobe PDF format that includes mouseover illustrations, movies, and hyperlinks, and a free sample is provided to allow readers to test the ebook on their chosen hardware. There's also a separate version (and sample) offered specifically for iPad owners, although both Apple and Android tablet users should note that the interactive features won't be active on their devices.
