One of the best books I've ever read about photography. Not only a coffee table type of book but a tool to understand in depth the photos displayed in its pages.
Whatever your favorite sort of photo is, you'll find a tutorial about it (macro, landscape, and so on).
You're not only going to get into the photographer's mind and going to understand the process of creation behind each of those stunning pictures, but you'll also realize you don't need an awful amount of gear to make a good picture, only a little skill and imagination.
The book is thrilling indeed because those tutorials are so clear, so easy to understand and adapt to your own photos that after reading this book you feel invigorated and eager to try something by yourself !
A great "mind opener" too. If you you are fond of taking landscape pictures, for example, you'll soon feel like trying some abstract or why not have a go at editing ?
I was very excited about this book, but the excitement lasted just a few pages. The book is made of a cheap paper like those ones we found in magazines. For these reason printing quality is also not good, especially for a photography book. Than one page came out of registration causing that blur effect on the photo and some text (looks like a 3D image). Than another page, and another one.... OMG, if it was a text book I would not mind at all, but a photography book with bad printing quality and pages out of registration has no value! 4 stars for the photos, none for the book quality. What a shame!
For the first time I have found a photo book, with soo many amazing images and soo many talentet photographers that I can actually learn something from!!I think it is great that the photographers are willing to share their experince and skill, so we can learn from them!! The tutorials are very informative, and very easy to understand. You do not need to have much knowledge of photography to learn something from the book. This is a book I'm ready to recommend to all photographers, especially those who want to develop and learn something!
Goog light every one:-)
