Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Leah J. Sparks
This unique title is both a practical guide for budding photographers of any age and a celebration of teen achievements in photography. Award-winning teen photographer Styr and freelance writer Wakem's guide features hundreds of photographs taken by young people around the world. Each chapter provides useful tips for beginner and more experienced photographers, ranging from choosing a lens to capturing the character of the photograph's subject. The gorgeous, surprising, remarkable photos showcase a particular type of subject (people, pets, landscapes, sports photography). The book's last chapters provide practical advice on post-processing and marketing photographs for would-be shutterbugs, which is complemented by a glossary of common photography terms. "Pro Tips" scattered throughout the book offer advice from twenty professional photographers to round out the advice from Styr, the founder of flickr.com's Teenage Photographers group and the administrator of a photography blog at www.theapblog.com. Teens and adults alike will find much to savor in this low-key overview of photography, and all will come away impressed by the remarkable display of talent from the young photographers whose work is featured.
