There are many ways to learn about photography, not least of which are the vast depths of the internet, replete with tutorials and how-to videos. But getting past mere technical proficiency and learning valuable lessons about the art form isn’t as easy as a Google search. Luckily, there are those old things called books. The following are five of them whose insights can actually teach you how to be a better photographer, not just know what all the buttons do.


Canon 7D Mark II Review: The Best DSLR For Sports And Wildlife, But That's All

It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-oriented 5D Mark II.

Polaroid Cube Review: A Tiny Adorable Camera

The Polaroid Cube is a delightful little camera that takes still shots and video. Like the name suggests, it’s a tiny little cube just 35mm on a side.

The Lonesome Crowded Shopping Centres Of The 1980s

When discussing street photography, locations like New York City or Los Angeles probably spring to mind. A less obvious setting is that icon of late 20th-century capitalism: the shopping mall. Stephen DiRado roved the halls of his local mall in the ’80s and captured stunning portraits of the denizens within.


Flickr Launches Official iPad App, Finally

The View From The Top Of NYC's Tallest New Apartment Building Is Nuts

We’ve already seen some night-time vistas from the top of 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in North America. They’re pretty wild. But now, the developers have released some high-res images of the views during the day time. They’re absolutely nuts.


How One Photographer Took Incredible Close-Ups Of Space Shuttle Launches

Shuttle launches are audacious displays of smoke, steam and a gigantic man-made vessel being thrust into space. Documenting in-the-moment details can be tricky — the press site for photographers is 5km from the pad itself. That just wasn’t close enough for Dan Winters.
