This two-volume bundle includes the complete bokeh eBook collection: The Art of Bokeh and The Portfolio of Bokeh. With these two editions, you will gain a full understanding of how to create bokeh with your camera, and how to apply it to your own personal style for a portfolio that is unique to you.
1st eBook: The Art of Bokeh
The Art of Bokeh: A Guide to Using Shallow Depths in Landscape Photography was written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. It’s focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation. This is my first eBook, written from my perspective and experiences, and I’m thrilled to present it.
By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this guide can show you how.

2nd eBook: The Portfolio of Bokeh
With The Portfolio of Bokeh, I can help to bridge the gap between your vision and your creation by explaining how I approached each of my bokeh images. By reading about my camera workflow, you can learn how to critically analyze a scene and decide on the best method to use.
In this eBook, you will find 22 full page examples of my strongest bokeh images in high-resolution color. Each photo is paired with a full page spread that contains a wealth of information on how I created each image. I discuss many aspects of my creative process – some examples include how I find inspiration, choosing a strong focal point, and the importance of applying photography principles in your composition (such as contrast and symmetry).
I also discuss the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how I compensate for exposure, and how I judge a scene before I decide which methods I am going to apply…for example, how and when I decide a scene needs to be panostitched or auto-bracketed.
What Kind of Format are these eBooks in?
Both eBooks come as separate downloadable PDF files, which can be viewed on a number of devices – laptop and desktop computers, iPhone or Android devices, iPads, and other tablets.
