Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Bites of information tell about photographers and their subjects. Some photographers such as Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and Margaret Bourke-White have made a difference in our understanding of people and nature. Harsh or soft lighting make a difference. Photography also helps to make stars of people. Paparazzi try to photograph the private lives of celebrities. A timeline tells of a day of taking pictures of a model. Facts, like that Helena Christensen began as a model and became a photographer are included. The photographic career of Annie Leibovitz is given in bites of information. Did you know retouching makes some pictures more perfect than the subject actually is? Adam Lawrence takes the best shots of people by getting them to relax. Alice Hawkins got a job with a style magazine right out of college. Random statistics about times of inventions and money associated with photography are given. A confusing table of contents and glossary appear near the front. The index, lists for further reading, and websites appear at the end. This is one title in the "On the Radar" series. A real mish-mash of information is provided for would-be photographers. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
