Why People Photograph
Why Do Peoples Photograph?
Comprehensible texts that talk about the `whys' of a subject are hard to come by. Often times those books are overly analytical and specific and can be a challenge to read, let alone get through. Fortunately Robert Adams holds an appreciation for simplification and utilizes this trait in his writing. "Why People Photograph" is a collection of essays in about photography. Adams focuses on ...
This is a book you will either love or hate. I did both. The beginning was so painfully slow that I was often tempted to put it down. And, if I hadn't read Moon Tiger first (a truly brilliant novel), I might have simply given up. But, somewhere around the fourth chapter, the characters pulled me in. The Photograph is, first and foremost, a character study. The protagonist, a beautiful, ...

So, you know you use a larger aperture for a shorter depth of field. And you know large apertures have small numbers. But would you like to know why that is? Do you already know? If, indeed, you know these basic principles but not 'why' they exist, then you remind me of me, and I think you'll like this book. The photos are great, the book dimensions show them off well, and the descriptions ...
Looking at Photographs: 100 Pictures from the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art

I bought this wonderful book with my Christmas or birthday money over thirty years ago, when I was a teenager first interested in the art of photography.

This book was the book I used to rearrange and set up my classroom. As a fairly new teacher I read the book and mixed her ideas and mine to create my classroom. I am so happy I purchased this book. I am even planning to purchase another book becuase my colleagues take the book from me all the time.
The Pleasures of Good Photographs (Aperture Ideas)
"If looking at photographs is a pleasurable activity, it is pleasurable in a complex, transformative, frequently unsettling sense. It is not pleasure unalloyed, for no profound pleasure is pure... Like many truly enriching pleasures... photography has its dark, troubling, even dangerous aspects." -Gerry Badger The Pleasures of Good Photographs is an intellectual and aesthetic excursion led by Gerry Badger, one of the field's eminent critics ...

How a picture is worth a thousand words.
As a person interested in the history of photography as well as a serious photographer, I've found this book to be a great help in getting the most out of a photograph. Unlike the snap judgments of a photo club, the book explains a logical sequence of steps to understanding. I found it especially helpful in reviewing photographs which are hard to appreciate for aesthetic reasons. Highly ...

You get to go on a journey with a master of photography and learn about how he approached each of these 40 classic Images, as he discusses in detail what the day and shooting conditions were like, what equipment he used and why, how he framed the pictures and why, and lots of other interesting things that come to his mind. ...
How to Photograph Absolutely Everything: Successful Pictures From Your Digital Camera
My favorite photo technique book
Over the years I have purchased many photo books by such authors as Sammon, Freeman, Kelby and Dunn but this is my favorite. It is just the right blend of simplicity and right on target information about almost everything. Although it seems to be point and shoot it is easily adaptable to my use of my Pentax K-x DSLR. It cuts through the clutter and goes right to the subject with clarity. ...

I would highly recommend ...
How to Draw Lifelike Portraits from Photographs

Drawing and painting for many years, I thought I had average portrait skills until I purchased this book. Wow, what talent, Lee's skills are amazing; I was certainly humbled.

I highly recommend Lee's ...
