As a photographer, I don’t have a lot of time at hand. But when I’m traveling for a shoot, or when I’m done for the day, I make sure I browse through the internet to find some interesting stuff to improve my photography.
Also, I read a lot, so there are hundreds of photography guides that I have read and what amazes me the most is that a few free ones are way better than the books I paid for.
So, I thought I’ll filter out a few free photography resources for you that I found useful. Let me tell you there is a lot of junk out there, so finding the right thing to spend your time with is also a challenge.
From eBooks to Lightroom presets, here are top-quality free photography resources from the world’s most trusted photographers and photography brands. Hope you like them all!
