Overview

Lighting, exposure, and computer effects: every one of these photographic elements helps create a photograph’s ambience, transforming it from a simple document into an eloquent, interpretive piece of art. From Kodak comes a complete course in refining the image and enhancing the scene you’re capturing. It focuses on personal expression, on moving beyond reality through point of view, software options, and all the camera’s tools. Master photographer Joseph Meehan provides invaluable professional advice on how to add drama with light quality, change the subject presentation through lens focal length, work with filters, shift perspectives, and harness the power of black-and-white imagery. Artist portfolios filled with award-winning examples illustrate every concept, and show photographers how to turn ordinary pictures into truly compelling pieces.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Beginners will want to learn the basics of digital photography with books like Tom Ang's How To Photograph Absolutely Everything. But to take advantage of the enormous artistic capabilities of the medium-i.e., to learn how to bend all the rules-this Kodak book is ideal. What was once done with difficulty-manipulating light, color, contrast motion, focus, and composition-can now be done with relative ease at the scene, inside the camera, and on the computer screen. Meehan, author of 25 books on photographic techniques, offers a brilliant, inspiring guide for amateurs and professionals on creating these effects through, e.g., infrared photography, filters, different lenses, and imaging software. Recommended.
