I am featuring on this site frequent typographic designs, but if you only look at inspiration without actually learning about the elements of typography, how this type of design should be used and where, you might just be an amateur designer who tries his best and that is all. To become a great graphic designer with serious knowledge of typography you have to learn either in an art school or from the best typography books that are available where you find almost everything useful on every topic regarding typography. Don’t get me wrong, there are very good articles online, but the information is scattered on various typography sites and it takes a lot of time to find the useful articles.
Part textbook and part reference work, the fifth edition of a typographic classic begins with a thumbnail history of the development of written language and ends with a glossary; in between are in-depth looks at five classic typefaces, lessons on designing with text type, display type and color, and plenty of project assignments.
Thinking with Type is the definitive guide to using typography in visual communication, from the printed page to the computer screen. Throughout the book, visual examples show how to be inventive within systems of typographic form—what the rules are and how to break them. The Anatomy of Type explores one hundred traditional and modern typefaces in loving detail, with a full spread devoted to each entry. Renowned typographer and poet Robert Bringhurst brings clarity to the art of typography with this masterful style guide. Just My Type investigates a range of modern mysteries, including how Helvetica took over the world, what inspires the seemingly ubiquitous use of Trajan on bad movie posters, and what makes a font look presidential, male or female, American, British, German, or Jewish. Packages on store shelves, posters on building walls, pages of a website—all contain information that needs to be communicated.
Countless designers in North America and Europe have been inspired by his teachings and lectures.
Logotype is the definitive modern collection of logotypes, monograms, and other text-based corporate marks. Typography is no longer the specialist domain of the typesetter: these days anyone who uses a computer has access to a wide range of typefaces and effects. The book is illustrated throughout with practical examples demonstrating good and bad solutions.
Although, or perhaps because, most of us write less and less by hand, our fascination for handwritten letterforms is growing. 1,000 Type Treatments showcases an array of fonts in a catalog-like format, making it easy for the working designer to practically shop for ideas.
Dozens of exercises reinforce authoritative coverage on such topics as how to select the appropriate type for the job, how to set type like a pro, how to avoid common mistakes, and how to design a typeface, as well as how to fully harness the power of major design packages such as InDesign and QuarkXPress — with new coverage of their latest versions. Emil Ruder’s Typography is the timeless textbook from which generations of typographer and graphic designers have learned their fundamentals. Typography Essentials is a practical, hands-on resource to distill, organize, and compartmentalize-but not to oversimplify-the many complex issues surrounding the effective use of typography. Typography, Referenced is the single most comprehensive volume covering every aspect of typography that any design student, professional designer, or design aficionado needs to know today.
Although grid systems are the foundation for almost all typographic design, they are often associated with rigid, formulaic solutions.
The ancient art of illuminating manuscripts is currently attracting many new enthusiasts among artists, art students, and lovers of calligraphy.
A must-have for designers, not to mention that quirky group in love with type for types sake (you know who you are), Typology is the most visually dynamic compendium of typefaces on the market.
Why be a designer who must rely upon preexisting typefaces and clip art when you can become the kind of designer who creates logos, fonts and lettering of your own? Seen in everything from wedding invitations and birth announcements to IOUs, menus, and diplomas, script typefaces impart elegance and sophistication to a broad variety of texts.
December is a month that delivers little inspiration due to the holidays that are at the end of the year, finishing with the end of the year.
Even if the workload is thin, a few interesting logos still appeared on various logo galleries throughout the web.
If you are an amateur photographer and want to learn all there is to know about photography or you are a professional and think that you have forgotten a few things or never learned them the proper way, then using a photography cheatsheet or more than one is an easy way to learn techniques that will most likely be useful. This article contains a large number of photography cheat sheets, 37 to be more precise, and I hope these will be useful to any person who wants to be a versatile photographer and know almost everything that there is about photography. Usually a multidisciplinary artist separates his work by its type, but Ben Heine decided to do things differently by combining photography and drawings in a way that is simply called: superb.
In the Pencil vs Camera project he takes photos of various places and then adds a modified section of that photo, drawn in such a way to make the picture more interesting and add a certain fantastic feeling to it, making it joyous by adding a drop of fantasy onto it. Hoy, he ido a comer en un restaurante chino y, al acabar, me han dado una galleta de la suerte. About the AuthorJosh Hubatchek is an adventurer, writer, and photography enthusiast based out of Chicago, IL. Today is our first lesson on shooting in manual the easy peasy way.  We will start with shooting in Aperture Priority Mode or AV which is one of the easiest setting to shoot in manual because your camera automatically adjust the shutter speed for you depending on what aperture and ISO you choose. So an easy way to remember this is to make a zero with your fingers,  shown below, you can see there is light shining in. I will touch on ISO in-depth at another time but briefly I will explain it here since you will be using it to shoot in AV mode. Try to remember that typically if you are outside shooting then you can have a lower ISO such as 100 or 200.  If you are indoors with low lighting you may want to increase your ISO to around 800.
The best way to get this down is to just take a ton of pictures and try out different speeds and apertures.
These pictures were taken with these settings: ISO 400, and at 18mm (see lens info at the end of article). Tip: While in AV mode your Aperture setting will change if you zoom in and out unless you have a Prime Lens with a fixed aperture.

Luckily, with a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO as well as having some tricks up your sleeve (which I’ll teach you!) you can easily get great pictures in manual mode from the beginning. In manual mode you have full control of everything: aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance, auto focus and picture style.
Your camera’s exposure meter and histogram can help you get correctly exposed images. In manual mode, you’ll be able to get complete creative control and create the images you want to create. Learning to shoot in manual mode is more about learning how your camera works so you can use it to your advantage and to have more creative freedom when photographing.
Basically, that’s a lot to think about in only a few milliseconds, but most DSLR and digital cameras do an astonishing job. The problem is just that the decisions your camera makes for you may not create the image you had in mind. In manual mode, you have the ability to change all the settings yourself: Aperture, shutter speed, ISO, color balance and picture style. The final exposure of your image is made up of three things: Aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Apart from playing a part in the final exposure, the aperture is also an important factor when it comes to depth of field. This means that if you want to focus on only a single thing, say a person, and blur the background, you will most likely use a relatively big aperture (= small f-number.


Bonus info: Depth of field also has to do with the distance to the subject from the camera, the distance from the subject to the background and the focal length of the lens. A longer shutter opening means that more light enters the image and that in turn makes it brighter.
All pictures taken with a Canon 5D mark III and a Tamron 24-70 2.8 at various ISO and aperture settings. ISO is the last of the three musketeers in the exposure triangle and doesn’t refer to a physical thing like aperture or shutter speed does.
When I take a picture in manual mode I always start out by asking myself which aperture I want to use. I choose an aperture that fits my requirements for depth of field and then a shutter speed that captures the motion I want to show.
If the image is too bright, I have to decide to use a ND-filter to darken it or to raise the f-number or the shutter speed to let in less light. If the image has too much noise in it as a result of high ISO, I can either use external light or lower the f-number or the shutter speed.
One of the most frustrating things about shooting in manual mode for many beginners is the fact that they feel completely in the dark before taking the first shot. The trick to get the exposure right the first time is to use your camera’s light meter (or exposure meter). A case could be made that if you use auto ISO, you don’t have to worry too much about exposure. Now, if its a high contrast scene (like a sunset), the exposure meter might not know what to expose for. Instead of messing around with them, simply know that if you want to capture more detail in the sky, you have to aim for a general exposure of about -2.
Metering light with just your eyes will become second nature to you once you’ve climbed down the dark and deep rabbit hole of photography. Clipped is just another word for lost information or lost detail, so in reality this means that your exposure is wrong if you lose detail in either your shadows or your highlights. As you can see, the underexposed image has a lot of information in the left side of the histogram, the correct exposure in the middle and the overexposed one to the right. To contain as much detail in your image as possible, try to keep the graph from touching either side, as that means some pixels will be clipped. The under and the overexposure versions here aren’t that bad, though, as the RAW version of the images will still contain most, if not all, of the information. In aperture priority mode, you can’t change the shutter speed manually and the ISO is usually at auto. Basically the same as aperture priority mode, only here you manually change the shutter speed and the aperture then figures itself out to get the exposure just right. When you understand how to take pictures in your camera’s manual mode, you get complete creative control over how you create your images. Now you’ll be able to blur backgrounds, make them sharp, blur motion, make it sharp and reduce image noise at will! If you have any questions about exposure, manual mode or other modes on your camera, do not hesitate to ask away in the comment section! Moreover, you need to have all the info in one place so that you learn things in a certain order. This revised edition includes forty-eight pages of new content, including the latest information on style sheets for print and the web, the use of ornaments and captions, lining and non-lining numerals, the use of small caps and enlarged capitals, as well as information on captions, font licensing, mixing typefaces, and hand lettering. Thinking with Type is a type book for everyone: designers, writers, editors, students, and anyone else who works with words. The full character set from each typeface is shown, and the best letters for identification are enlarged and annotated, revealing key features, anatomical details, and the finer, often-overlooked elements of type design. Combining the practical, theoretical, and historical, this edition is completely updated, with a thorough exploration of the newest innovations in intelligent font technology, and is a must-have for graphic artists, editors, or anyone working with the printed page using digital or traditional methods.
From the typeface of Beatlemania to the graphic vision of the Obama campaign, fonts can signal a musical revolution or the rise of an American president.
And at the heart of that communication is type: visually interesting, interactive, expressive and captivating.
In Typography, Weingart sums up an impressive lifework in 500 pages that describe his own development and the foundations of his teachings. Featuring more than 1,300 international typographic identities, by around 250 design studios, this is an indispensable handbook for every design studio, providing a valuable resource to draw on in branding and corporate identity projects. There are tips for specific design tasks, such as letters, charts, tables, and design for the screen, and a glossary explaining typographic terms.
Typeface designers who specialize in traditional, charming, or spectacular lettering with a handmade look have become role models for today’s young typographers and graphic design students.
The book is organized by style so if a designer has a traditional, elegant, or edgy piece, they can go directly to that section of the book, where they will find a wide collection of fresh ideas in the style they are seeking.
From the fundamentals to cutting-edge applications, this edition has everything today’s serious designer needs to use type effectively. Ruder, one of the great twentieth-century typographers was a pioneer who abandoned the conventional rules of his discipline and replaced them with new rules that satisfied the requirements of his new typography. However, the belief that all great design is nonetheless based on grid systems (even if only subverted ones) suggests that few designers truly understand the complexities and potential riches of grid composition. In a stunning little package that expertly combines a handmade feel with a modern aesthetic, this is the ultimate inspirational collection of contemporary lettering for design buffs and type enthusiasts alike. The Bible of Illuminated Letters is a volume they’ll all want to add to their collections. Its pages are profusely illustrated with hundreds of complete alphabets, and such original artifacts as typesheets, catalogs, broadsides, posters, and many other primary source examples.
Leslie Cabarga, author of the bestselling Designer’s Guide to Color Combinations, has created a textbook of type for the experienced graphics professional as well as the beginning student of design. Scripts never go out of style, and the hundreds of inventive examples here are sure to inspire today’s designers. This is a time when only a few unfortunate fellows are working and the rest are resting, partying, spending time with family or friends or doing something completely different than working. 29 of these interesting logos are here in this article thanks to the hard working logo designers who made and promoted them. I appreciate their work a lot and if I would be a photographer I would be really excited if one of these top notch photographers would do a cheat sheet explaining how to do certain procedures or what to follow when doing a certain type of photo, for example portrait, food or wedding photo.
You’ll notice that some are actual cheat sheets and others look more like infographics, but what matters is that they are useful. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romania and South Korea. The closer the F stop is set to 0 the more light is shining in (I believe the lowest setting is 1.4 but it varies depending on your lens). And either adjust lighting or adjust your lens opening (f-stop) so there is more light coming into the picture. When I took the above pictures I had it on the 18mm and didn’t zoom in out so my setting would be the same since I was trying to do a comparison.
In auto mode, you can be pretty sure that you’re going to get usable shots right of the bat – who knows what you get in manual mode?


To get correct exposure for the scene, your DSLR has to decide in a matter of milliseconds which aperture, shutter speed and ISO to use – along with focusing, setting the correct color balance and picture style.
Most cameras also have other modes that let you change only a single setting and then automate the rest, but we’ll get back to those modes later on. A big opening will also create a shallower depth of field while a smaller opening will create a larger depth of field. Big apertures will give you small focus planes (have less of the image in focus) and smaller apertures will have bigger focus planes. The shutter speed needed to completely freezing the action depends on the speed of the subject in motion. The point would be valid for most cases, but if ISO 100 overexposes your image or your max ISO underexposes it, using your camera’s light meter can make you realize that before even taking the picture.
Or if you want more detail in the darker areas (like a face in front of a sunset) you have to aim for +1.

This book is a must-read for the design conscious that will forever change the way you look at the printed word.
Retaining the striking black-and-white aesthetic and structure of Logo (also by Michael Evamy) and Symbol, Logotype is an important and essential companion volume. Now in its sixth printing, this book has a hallowed place on the bookshelves of both students and accomplished designers. A deep understanding of letterforms and knowledge of the effective use of letterforms can only be obtained with constant observation and experimentation; it evolves over a lifetime of design practice and study.
In all, Typology is the long-awaited type encyclopedia destined to be a standard reference work for years to come. And nowhere is that fact more evident than in typography, which today uses vintage type in ads, book and magazine design, movies, and everywhere words convey meaning. Derived from handwriting, these are typefaces that are stylized to suggest, imply, or symbolize certain traits linked to writing. I love the diagram below from Kitty and Buck because the white space represents the light coming in.
I did a first round with an ISO of 200 but because it was in the evening on a cloudy day they turned out too dark. Remember ISO comes to the rescue when you have low lighting situations. One picture with a link back may be used provided that full and clear credit is given to Inspired by Familia and with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. Excerpts (no more then 2 sentences)and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to Mari Hernandez-Tuten and Inspired by Family Magazine with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. At first this may be uncomfortable, but soon you’ll realize how much power this gives you. If you want to use your lens’ maximum aperture for all your shots, this mode is for you.
She learned her skills to improve her photography as Kinder Craze grew into the blog it is today. A solid foundation in typography, as well as an understanding of its nuances, will help you optimize your visual communication—in whatever form it takes. Among them are Celtic, Saxon, Gothic, Romanesque, Modern Revival, and seven more, including several modern scripts.
Viewers may not even realize that the type itself conveys mood, information, and a sense of style, but graphic designers know the power of vintage type. Maria got started by taking a class from our wedding photographer, Brian Weitzel of BTW Photography, on the basics of photography.
He taught Maria how to shoot in manual mode and she tells me that she has never looked back.
Note in diagram above, the dial will help you quickly change aperture instead of doing it manually. Her happy place is when her camera dial is set to M.Once we decided to start this little blog together, Maria offered to teach me what she knows about photography to help me improve my skills. I kind of just assumed it had something to do with her really fancy Canon T3i (which has since been replaced by the Canon T5i) or her fancy 40 mm or 50 mm lenses, but it turns out it is none of those.
As she taught me, you can dramatically improve your photography by shooting in manual mode and paying attention to just four things. And now, as part of our Crazy for Photography series, we want to share the four basics of manual mode photography with you. This stuff is a bit more technical than Maria’s earlier posts on decluttering your background and mirror selfies. All of these things will strongly affect how your photos will look.Maria and I generally shoot photos for the blog in a sun-lit room to get the bright look that we always have. We often spend a few minutes adjusting the blinds and furniture in the room to get the lighting just right.
When Maria knows that she has a Stitch Fix shipment on the way, she begins watching the weather a few days in advance so she can shoot those photos on a day with clear bright skies. If the weather is cloudy or rainy, she will wait and shoot those photos another day.When we first moved into the condo, Maria experimented a lot to find the best lighting conditions for her Stitch Fix photos. She always shot the images in our office, but the location of the mirror kept changing as she sought after the best possible light. The higher the number, the more sensitive the camera is to light and the brighter your photograph looks. Once you know that, you can start adjusting the settings on your camera to have a properly lit photo. You should always adjust the ISO on your camera first.I will often shoot with an ISO of 100 or 200 on a bright day outside because there is so much available light. The room was so dark, she had to double the ISO and set it at 1600 just to get any light in the photo. Even with a higher ISO, the brightness was still inadequate. To compensate for the lower lighting, she increased the ISO to 6400 for the photo on the right.
The exposure is much brighter than the photo in the middle because the sensor is more sensitive to light at ISO 6400 than it is at ISO 800.Now, that increased light sensitivity does come with a price. The trade-off with ISO is that the higher the ISO, the more white noise you will see in the the photo.
Here is a zoomed in comparison of the ISO 800 shot on the left and the ISO 6400 shot on the right.
To get the same brightness in two rooms with very different lighting, Maria had to sacrifice some clarity when she shot at ISO 6400.With the cameras that Maria and I have, we almost never go above ISO 1600.
