I am very pleased to announce my newest ebook “A Guide to Creative Blurs” is now available!! In this guide I share more of my techniques for capturing blurs, including multiple exposures and also post processing blurs. This ebook was carefully edited by Carol Carson, Carol did a wonderful job culling through the pages; making this one of my absolute favorites. If you enjoy creating artistically blurred images then this ebook will appeal to you.
In addition to the varied types of blurs that I cover in the ebook listed below, I also cover the factors that contribute to the degree of blurring and I will teach you to recognize situations where subject movement can be used to your advantage. There is also a large section devoted to my Photoshop techniques for crafting pleasing blurs. This ebook contains over 15,000 words and over 160 pages filled with inspiring new images. $24.00

From one of my clients:
Below is my review of “A Guide to Creative Blurs.”
“Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” – Albert Einstein
Denise Ippolito is an extremely gifted photographer who generously shares her creativity. I am fortunate to have met Denise, observed her talent and benefited from her willingness to share, inspire and elevate the artistry of photography. Her new ebook, “A Guide to Creative Blurs,” reflects her desire to inspire and share.
The book is presented in two sections: In-Camera Blurs and Photoshop Blurs. The more than 170 pages contain how-to guides for 12 in-camera blurs and 9 Photoshop Blurs with an amazing array of supporting before and after images. And if that isn’t enough, there are 6 very helpful quick notes and 6 general tips.
“A Guide to Creative Blurs” provides a path to elevate my photography. I was delighted to learn so many new ideas and techniques. Importantly as Denise states in her general tips, remember – “Blurs are try-and-try-again endeavors. Be prepared to take lots of shots.”
Bottom line: If one of your photographic objectives is to increase your artistry, immediately buy “A Guide to Creative Blurs.” It is a great book that when combined with practice will help you reach the next level.
