Book Review: Shoot + Share by Stuart Sipahigil

Chances are you are a beginning photographer who loads all the photos from your new DSLR to Facebook.  Or maybe you are an advanced enthusiast whose images never see the light of day.  Your friends and family are either overwhelmed by the number of photos you produce in one night or saddened because those great memories you captured yesterday stay locked up in your Lightroom catalog forever.

Have no fear, Shoot + Share by Stuart Sipahigil is here!

With the advancements of digital photography, sharing your images has never been easier.  The list of photo sharing sites is endless, photographer communities are active, and participation is inexpensive or free.  The trick to building a large and responsive audience is not to over or underwhelm them, but to post quality and targeted work.

Stuart Sipahigil walks us through the various degrees of image sharing in Shoot + Share, including sharing with friends and family, sharing with other photographers, sharing with clients, and sharing with the world.  In 58 spreads, Sipahigil discusses the different methods of sharing your photographs both online and offline, provides a long list of social media sites photographers can call home, and even offers suggestions on increasing your online presence.

In the end, photography is based on timeliness and timelessness.  Be timely by capturing emotional and compelling images.  Be timeless by sharing your images in various forms and creating a dialogue between the photographer, subject, and viewer.  Shoot + Share will set you on the right track to getting this important dialogue started.
