Bruce Barnbaum, of Granite Falls, WA, entered photography as a hobbyist in the s, and after four decades, it is still his. This is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic book The Art of Photography (originally published in ), which has often been described as the.
Bruce Percy has an e-book that finally shows clearly how to do all the difficult image tweaks that are critical in making good images great. He shows step-by-step how to use adjustment layers and masks for localized image adjustments, which are the most important things you can do to your images in a computer. More precisely, Bruce finally explains, for the first time I've ever seen it written down, how to do burning and dodging properly in Photoshop. This is the most important image correction you can do in a computer, and it's critical for people and landscape and every kind of shot, and I have yet to see it in a book. Creative use of adjustment layers and masks is the most important part of Photoshop, and something few hobbyists ever learn. I use this process all the time for lightening faces and darkening corners and backgrounds to make my subjects pop!
This book is a classic. It's loaded with fantastic photos, which alone inspire many to making great photographs, and also is loaded with Galen's explanations of how and why he sees and how he gets to thee places.
Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision is David duChemin's book written for travel and people photographers, and is one of the best books I've read about how to see and make great photos. It's written from a humanitarian photojournalist perspective, and its wisdom applies to every sort of photography of people and places. Understanding Exposure Bryan Peterson profusely illustrates not just exposure, but many other critical components of photography.
Personally so many people have found this a great book that I just ordered one myself from site and will let you know more when I finish it. Designing a Photograph by Bill Smith. It starts off with examples to illustrate points by which to analyze photographs.
It then gets to the good stuff about how to create great photos out of nothing. It offers exercises and assignments to get your creative juices flowing, and finishes with specific suggestions for every sort of photography. Photographic Composition by Grill and Scanlon. One of the very few books that explains the most important aspect of photography: composition. Using the View Camera by Steve Simmons very clearly explains everything you need to get started in large-format photography.
If you want to learn everything you need to know about 4 x 5 photography, get this one book. Jack is one of the few guys who really gets out in the middle of nowhere and brings back striking images.
Jack is responsible for waking many people up to the sandstone formations of the American Southwest. The New Nikon Compendium is my favorite guide to the Nikon system. The first edition Nikon Compendium from and the slightly older second edition from here published by Hove are also good.
These compendia are loaded with refreshingly correct information as to what was made when and what features work on which cameras, answering exactly the sort of emails I get from people all the time. They also cover all the cameras, motors, finders, lenses, flashes and other accessories.
The newest edition covers digital cameras and historic rangefinders. It's not cheap and it's worth every penny since you won't have to download all the other Nikon guides out there. Even Nikon's own printed catalogs can disagree with themselves. For instance, Vol. These goofs are common, which is why you shouldn't spend much time reading guides and why I started making my own observations and writing them down.
That's how this website came to be: personal notes about my own gear so I wouldn't forget. The original Nikon Compendium was at least as good.
Of all the other Nikon guides, Moose Peterson's are my favorites. Unfortunately for gearheads he's gotten out of the guide business and fortunately for photographers he stresses photography itself. Unlike most guide writers who are authors first and photo hobbyists second, Moose is a real photographer. His guides are written from a seasoned point of view. If you like the technical part of this site, you'll LOVE this electronic education program here! This author is a genius and has already explained all the technical aspects of digital photography that I've only dreamed about writing.
The book is also packed with practical tips and editing tutorials. On Being a Photographer by David Hurn.
This book also is unusual in that it addresses what is actually important in photography as opposed to pointless technique. This may help you to see better, which is the most important part of photography.
Yes, it's aimed at artists who draw as opposed to photograph, and yes, the concepts of seeing are identical. You can see previews at the link. Lenswork is an exquisitely-printed magazine loaded with extraordinary black-and-white photographic artwork.
View Camera Magazine I subscribe to this. This is the best, and possibly only, magazine covering large format photography. Each issue is loaded with a couple of artists' portfolios as well as news, and even very useful technical articles. It's edited by the author of the book "Using the View Camera" above.
site keeps moving it around so you'll probably have to search for it. Macworld I also subscribe to this. I find that every issue has some Photoshop or other tip I find genuinely useful so I bite the bullet on price.
These links take you to site who has them used. Creativity comes from thinking differently from everyone else and having a lot of fun. I found this book very helpful to keeping me in my usual playful and creative mood.
How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci This book is also helpful just like the one above; it just takes longer to get to the point. They are both required reading. It explains how Leonardo had an insatiable curiosity and went out and tried everything for himself to see what happened.
The same applies to photography, photo technique and equipment evaluation. You need to try everything yourself; not just rely on the work of others.
Photographer's Market has come out every year for decades loaded with thousands of listings of magazines, ad agencies, stock houses, books, card and calendar publishers, galleries and zillions of places for you to start selling your photos. It also lists submission guidelines, names and contacts and payment info. This is the one book to get if you really want to start selling your photos. Every edition is good.
Pay attention to the important aspects of subjects and compositions, but don't take the camera equipment examples as Gospel, since they they focus on the tools used in journalism.
Exactly what it says; a very helpful book for making real photos.
Beyond Portraiture by Bryan Peterson covers just about everything I'd want to know about photographing people. It has a lot of new information about how to walk up to total strangers and get them to pose for you.
The Complete Nikon Rangefinder System by Robert Rotoloni is the authoritative work documenting the s Nikon rangefinder camera system for collectors.
This is the largest and most complete compilation of everything Nikon made, excepting the SLR cameras and lenses, from - It even includes many never-manufactured prototypes. See my full review of this book. The world didn't know, but Nikon was done designing manual focus lenses. It was time to document them forever in this soft-cover art book that came in its own slip-case. Internally, Nikon was busy working on the still secret AF lenses. Every AI-s lens has it's own page or two of fame.
This book has been out of print since , never again repeated in Nikon's 90 year history. If you want to be a professional photographer you need to know this more than photography.
Some few people already have this knack. Most people, including myself, don't. I read this in and it changed my life forever. I used to think that arguing my point and telling people what to do were the way to get them to do what I want. You have to swallow your pride, stroke their ego, appeal to nobler causes and voila!
If everyone read this we'd have no fights and everyone would get along for the better. It's the best eight bucks you'll ever spend. I've read many books and spent many days in seminars back when I was a Senior Manager in a multibillion dollar company.
Nothing ever taught me anything that wasn't covered in one read of this great book. Want to get top dollar from happy photo customers? Excellent insightful writing on the "why" of photography in the good bits, especially the parts on capturing your emotional response to a scene rather than a realistic picture of the scene. Now I know why I just can't take decent photos of some things, I'm just not interested in them enough to have any emotional response.
The middle chapters are concerened ent It's a bit up and down this book. The middle chapters are concerened entirely with the Zone System, film delveloping and printing, and framing techniques. Other than as an historical aside, I found them of little use as a solely digital photographer. I skimmed over pages before getting back to the creative stuff.
I'd already read through Ansel Adams' "The Negative" and "The Print", so I felt no need to go through another lesson in picking developing fluids.
I also found a lot of his photos were not to my tastes at all, especailly the abstracts, but that's not really the point of the book. I'm still going to give it 5 stars because it's one of the best photography books I've ever read on the artistic side of photography. If you actually shoot and develop film, it would be perfect!
