Hi gang:
Next week I’ll be wrapping up writing Volume 3 of my book, “The Digital Photography Book,” and while I still have the chance I wanted to ask you if there were any particular topics, subjects, or techniques you wanted me to cover in this new book.

Now, before you get involved, there are three things you should know:

  1. This book picks up right where Volume 2 left off, so there are chapters that focus on the next level of studio stuff, and the next things you need to know about small off-camera flash, and there are chapters on shooting landscapes & travel, how to photograph children, how to shoot Sports, a chapter on lenses, a chapter on composition, one on just how to take better photos, a chapter on shooting products, and of course, my photo recipes (how to get this type of shot). So, keep those in mind, because those topics are already in the new book.
  2. Below I’ve posted the table of contents for Volumes 1 and Volumes 2 (two completely different books), so before you post an idea, could you take a quick look there first and see if it’s already been covered in one of the first two books.
  3. If I wind up using one of your ideas in Volume 3, I’ll give you your choice of: My new “Photoshop CS4 Book for Digital Photographers,” my “Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers,” or my soon-to-be-released book, “Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks.” Again, your choice if I use your tip (and I’ll let you know here on the blog right away).

So, that’s the scoop. I really appreciate the thought you guys put into this, and as you’ve seen, I really take your ideas to heart, and often right straight to paper, so I offer my thanks in advance. Now, here (below) are the Vol. 1 and Vol.2 TOCs (click on them for a larger view):
