Aaaiiieeee! My book, my long-awaited book, has finally been published.
Android Photography: A Guide to Mobile Creativity is what it sounds like: a how-to manual for getting amazing photos out of your Android phone.
You can buy it at Amazon (linked above), at Barnes & Noble, at Target, and a handful of other places, too. I’ll update you with cool news on other places carrying my book soon.
It’s also an inspirational gallery of Android-powered work from international photographers — amateurs and pros. And it’s got an extremely thorough guide to the best Android Market photography and photo-editing apps, and guides on how to use them.
I spent a ton of time on this book, and I’m very pleased with the results.
If you buy it, I will love you. And I think you’ll love it, too.
