The Making of Great Photographs is a collection of images by some of the most important photographers in history. Eamonn McCabe discusses the techniques and approaches employed by the masters in each image and, uniquely, how photographers can achieve similar effects using modern equipment. A great collection and a stimulating, practical insight into the work of the masters of the photographic medium. This collection features a wide range of styles: from the fascinating and beautiful early images of Julia Margaret Cameron, to twentieth-century masters such as Edward Weston and Paul Stran, from the pioneers of the process itself such as Fox Talbot, to the celebrated post-war documentarist Tony Ray Jones. The Making of Great Photographs is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of photography as well as practising photographers everywhere.
