Graffiti Classic is a graffiti font that blends the improvisational urban quality of graffiti with the smoothness and regularity of a typeface. Growing up in Brooklyn, graffiti appeared to me as an explosion of expression and color in a sea of concrete. Inspired, I became a graffiti artist and practiced in both notebooks and subway tunnels. While I moved on to somewhat more traditional art forms in future years, with Graffiti Classic I pay homage to my artistic roots in a calligraphy marker/tag font. Like my other fonts, the entire Graffiti Classic font is spaced letter to individual letter so that the spacing will work smoothly, in spite of the expressiveness and irregularity of the forms. The Graffiti Classic family also includes an ornaments font, “Taglets,” which has clouds, underlines, arrows, crowns, halos and more to add flavor to your designs.

Just Available Light: Techniques for Digital Photographers by Rod Deutschmann, Robin Deutschmann
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1608955567 | 93 pages | EPUB | 5,6 MB
Emphasizing the usefulness of ambient lighting, this guidebook gives unlimited access to the methods used by professionals. Starting with a discussion of the advantages and challenges of working with natural light, the text then explores the positive impact it can have on a photographer’s creativity and how to deal with the compromises that using available light sometimes require. Examples from this preliminary section emphasize learning through experimentation. Next, the book explores camera settings including white balance, contrast, and saturation. The authors demonstrate that thoughtful adjustment to these settings can yield images that more closely reflect the mood of the scene and minimize postproduction editing. Several chapters deal with modifying available light through the delicate use of reflectors to bounce light, polarizers to cut glare, and the proper procedure for adding neutral density filters to control brightness. With the techniques presented, photographers will learn to use available light to its fullest advantage.
Hollywood Portraits: Hot-Light Techniques for Professional Photographers by Lou Szoke
English | 2012 | ISBN: 160895305X | 158 pages | EPUB | 8 MB
With lighting techniques beneficial for professional photographers but also accessible for those less experienced with a camera, this handy reference offers insights into utilizing “hot lights” (tungsten-based continuous light sources) to achieve glamorous, Hollywood-inspired shots. This “Hollywood” lighting—characterized by dramatic contrast, sharp shadows, and a sultry mood—is simple to create and allows photographers to “sculpt” the subject, accentuating their best features while minimizing flaws. Though the focus is on nostalgic lighting style, the book acknowledges modern advances in photographic technology and discusses how to produce these dazzling retro effects using both digital and traditional film cameras. Throughout the book, lighting diagrams showing the photograph’s setup accompany nearly every image, carefully illustrating the lighting techniques for easy re-creation.
