Extreme Photography

Extreme Photography

by Terry Hope
     
 
Photography is about much more than putting the camera to the eye and pressing the shutter. Sometimes what is being recorded is impossible to approach in a convetional way, for a number of reasons: it's too small, too large, far away, too hot, too cold or hidden away somewhere where the eye can't see. Extreme photography takes the medium to the limits of possibility

Overview

Photography is about much more than putting the camera to the eye and pressing the shutter. Sometimes what is being recorded is impossible to approach in a convetional way, for a number of reasons: it's too small, too large, far away, too hot, too cold or hidden away somewhere where the eye can't see. Extreme photography takes the medium to the limits of possibility and beyond human capability.Focusing on cutting-edge technology, Extreme Photography is a stunning showcase of what is photographically possible. From the invention of tiny spy cameras, and those that can take photographs of our internal organs, to space photography, x-rays, time-lapse, temperature-resistant and night vision cameras, as well as cameras that can reproduce image of the human aura, this is the definitive guide to alternative image making. Award-winning journalist Terry Hope studied photography at Harrow College, London, before moving into journalism, writing for Camera Weekly, Amateur Photographer, The Times, and the Guardian, among others. For Rotovision, Terry has written all six titles in the acclaimed Black & White Photography series, the first two "World's Top Photographers" titles: Wildlife and Landscape, and Fine Art Photography. Terry lives in Kent, OH.
