Recently featured in the PBS documentary At Close Range, Sartore has photographed stories about gray wolves, the Madidi National Park in Bolivia, and the wilds of Brazil's Pantanal. For nearly 20 years, however, he has also been documenting his own family. Here, he shares how he took some of the best pictures, breaking down photography basics, then applying the principles to each photo in the book. In a personal style, Sartore elucidates picture composition, stresses the importance of a photo's background, identifies the best times of day to shoot, and reveals the surprising conditions that provide dramatic light. Sections on how to choose and use a camera, build a proper archive, and make better prints round out this fine book new. Taylor, an expert on history, genealogy, and photography, takes a different approach by focusing on documentation rather than art??. In addition to information on gear and gadgets, she advises on photographing gravestones and old documents, not to mention the ethical and legal concerns of posting family photos online. Both books are recommended for public libraries.
