Overview

How to Photograph Works of Art evolved from Collin's journals of tried-and-tested notes. It is a landmark among photography books in that it deals solely and specifically with the photography of art, which is an extremely complex subject. Eleven chapters of clear, straightforward prose are illustrated by 150 of the author's black-and-white photographs and diagrams and a 32-page color section. Explanatory captions reveal how to cope, step by step, with problems that must be solved with the tools at hand, available light, and time constraints.

The cover declares this is "A practical guide for photographers, artists, private collectors, gallery owners, antique dealers ...". Lucid instructions and mouth-watering examples (we must overlook the caption identifying a Navajo squash-blossom necklace as "Tibetan"-pl.11). Annotation c.
