Overview

Thanks to the popularity of digital photography and user-generated Internet content, interest in experimental photographic techniques continues to build. This unique guide helps photographers go beyond the snapshot, flex their creative muscles, and push the boundaries of their art.

Rick Doble presents a wealth of imaginative concepts, from creating ambience through a mix of flash and available light to panning the camera and zooming the lens during an exposure. He explains how to manipulate time and motion in an image, use inventive white balance methods, and “paint” with light in time exposures. There are even original self-portrait techniques.

Put these procedures in practice and you’ll make photography a riveting, even surreal, art form!

Controversial Book Gets You To Think Outside the Box This book is about photographic techniques not Photoshop processing. The photographs are made with motion techniques using a slow shutter speed and camera movement, subject movement or a combination of the two. This produces photos which are blurry. Their are a wide variety of techniques explained such as panning, ghosting, negative ghosting, hyperfocal distance, image stabilization, relative movement and absolute movement. The book is controversial because some people love these blurred photos and some people hate them. The people who hate them see them as the kind of photos taken by accident they have learned to delete from their cameras. The people who love them see them as painterly and impressionistic. If you are willing to think outside the box, this book opens up a new world of imagery -- that uses blur and slow, often very slow shutter speeds -- to produce quite different photographs from what you normally get with a camera.

This is hands down the worst photography book I have ever read. This guy has a 2 or 3 megapixel camera and took some pictures in his van, at a concert, and of some people around him and tried to turn it into a 150 page book. The only thing worse than the pictures is the text that goes along with it.  You can boil  the entire book down to one sentence: Leave your shutter open for several seconds and see what happens.
