Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book by Australian artist and designer Saddington is for artists looking to photograph their own work. Unfortunately, it limits itself by recommending that the artist have an SLR camera such as a Canon or Pentax with a 50 mm lens, a light meter, and other specialized equipment, which would seem to take the "quick and easy" out of the whole process. Divided into four chapters, the book is simplistic in layout, but Americans will need to consult the metric conversion chart. Saddington, while a known artist in Australia, admits that he is largely self-taught as a photographer and does not provide the detail necessary for novices. Any book on basic photography should be able to help artists understand lighting, angles, and the various photography equipment required to enhance their photographs; those who want a book that specifically addresses the issues faced when photographing artwork should consult Russell Hart's Photographing Your Artwork. Hart is a photographer, and his detailed book, released in 2000, received excellent reviews. Saddington's book is not recommended for most libraries, though large academic libraries serving art or design programs might consider.-Sandy Knowles, Henderson Cty.
