This unique book is packed with more than 200 magnificent photos, each expressing the photographer’s unique take on a scene or subject. With each image, the artist shares a description of the setting, what inspired the idea, and what the photo was intended to accomplish, along with the technical details — camera and lens used, shutter speed, aperture, and lighting. Stimulate your creativity with these breathtaking landscapes, incredible action shots, heartwarming portraits of people and pets, intriguing close-ups, and more.
Lynne Eodice has brought together scores of award-winning images from Photoworkshop.com, one of the Web's top photography sites. Each photo is accompanied with the photographer's comments, tips, and technical information. Not "recipes" but real insight.
Take, for example, nature and landscapes. You find yourself in a stunningly beautiful park. You hear the trickling stream. You smell the wildflowers. How do you capture the essence of that experience on a memory card? Through this book's examples, you'll learn how to zero in on whatever compelled you to take a picture in the first place.
Case in point: Michael Pickelsimer's "Morning Light on Lake Louise." Anyone who's been there knows how breathtaking Lake Louise is, but too many photos fail to capture its grandeur and peace. Pickelsheimer has -- and tells you how.
Ever missed a shot of a rainbow? Ever been disappointed with the rainbow photo you did get? You'll appreciate Rice Jackson's image and comments (as well as Eodice's tips on increasing your odds of actually seeing that next rainbow.)
But nature is only one piece of this book. You'll find wonderful work (and great ideas) for shooting portraits. For action and sports photography. For shooting at night, in low light, and at the "magic hour." For architecture and urban scenes, from 7th Avenue in New York City to the CN Tower (it's about time folks learned how to shoot that structure!). You'll find closeups. Still lifes. There's even a chapter on skin.
The images will take your breath away; the commentary will help you do the same thing for everyone else. Bill Camarda, from the October 2007 Read Only
