Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The secret desire of many backyard photographers is to sell that great shot they took while on vacation or caught by lucky chance. This how-to book can help make that a reality. An experienced professional photographer, Antrobus walks readers through the ins and outs of taking pictures with an eye to increasing their chances of being accepted by stock photography libraries. General photographic considerations are covered, such as film, format, lighting, and composition, as well as how to submit your work, handle licensing, and get releases. Antrobus illustrates his points with 150 excellent examples of his own work, captioned with full explanations of how they were made. The author's real-life tips and examples are particularly valuable, and this book is sure to circulate. Recommended for public and special libraries.-Karen MacMurray, Cape Coral P.L., FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
