Sales copy (short – blurbs):

Learning from your photography mistakes is helpful, but it can also be confusing, frustrating and expensive.  Wouldn’t it be better if you could learn from other people’s silly mistakes instead, while occasionally laughing at their expense??

Shannon Kalahan and David Pasillas certainly think so!

There are so many how-to landscape photography guides out there that walk you through the basics of camera controls, composition and lighting.  What those guides don’t always do is shoot you straight (heh, shoot…photos…) about the realities of life as a landscape photographer.  “Photography. DUH.” covers some of the biggest mistakes that you should avoid, and gives you practical and economical tips for solving common in-the-field problems.  If you’re looking for real world advice on how to elevate your landscape photography, with entertaining step-by-step warnings of things you shouldn’t try, this book is for you!

Sales copy (long – emails, newsletter, blogs, etc):

Shannon Kalahan (landscape photographer, book/magazine author) and David Pasillas (landscape photographer, book author, educational articles on iphonephotographyschool.com) have released a new book for anyone looking for practical tips to navigate the pitfalls of landscape photography.  The book is called, “Photography. DUH.”

Photography. DUH is a collection of downright useful common sense knowledge presented with an engaging brand of humor that will keep you entertained as well as enlightened. Filled with the type of good solid advice that would have saved me much trouble if only they’d had the decency to write it a few years earlier, Shannon and David lay out all the stuff budding landscape photographers ought to know and probably don’t. Two thumbs up, five stars, +1 and a Like for a thoroughly recommended book.” – Derek Kind, www.derekkind.com

“Shannon and David do a great job of listing all of the ways you can and probably still will fail.  And they do it in an entertaining and comedic way.  You will still make errors, but hopefully far less of them after reading this helpful book.” – Michael Bandy, www.michaelbandy.com
