Serial Photography: Using Themed Images to Improve Your Photographic Skills Reviews
It's hard to decide what the criteria should be for rating and judging a book like this. I decided to read through it. It's inspired me to try to complete a series or two and to alter my photo storage to add more metatagging for cataloging purposes. The reason I did not love the book was beyond the inspirational idea and concept, I did not love the photos all to much, nor did I care tremendously for the author's instructional style. I use the term instruction loosely, because telling you where in Europe picture come from or pointing out the shade in a few pictures versus the lack of shade in others made the book a little light on instruction. This all said, I recently recommended a friend take a peek at the book. Borrow it from someone, grab it at a library, but you don't need to own it nor read it from top to bottom to glean all the salient details. For this, it was good but underwhelming.
Neither bedwetting nor torturing pets and small animals was ever my thing. I was always fascinated with fire, but I never became a pyromaniac. So, how did I become a “serial photographer?” Some of my harsher critics may complain that I’ve killed many subjects with my camera, but fortunately I have more admirers that constantly encourage me. So I keep on shooting.Read my complete review here:http://technorati.com/entertainment/a...
I love this book! The author and I think alike, but he explains his thinking in clear terminology, something I'm rather awkward about. I didn't give five Stars because it is so short and I think the best audience is limited to photographers who are striving to understand what and why underlying formal elements work to make art with photography.
Good exercises A book that helps you think of the obvious, yet outside the box. The book can and will be useful if you try some of the suggestions, and get out and shoot.
