Review

"Chris Orwig is a vibrant and authentic individual who brings passion to everything that he does. I would unequivocally recommend this
book to everyone who wants to reach further with their photography or other creative endeavor they cherish.” —Douglas Kirkland

From the Back Cover

A great photograph has the potential to transcend verbal and written language. But how do you create these photographs? It’s not the how that’s important, but the who and the what. Who you are as a person has a direct impact on what you capture as a photographer.

Whether you are an amateur or professional, architect or acupuncturist, physician or photographer, this guide provides inspiration, simple techniques, and assignments to boost your creative process and improve your digital images using natural light without additional gear.

Chris Orwig’s insights—to reduce and simplify, participate rather than critique, and capture a story—have made him an immensely popular workshop speaker and faculty member at the prestigious Brooks Institute. His engaging stories presented as lessons follow his classroom approach and highlight what students say is his contagious passion for life.

In this accessible and beautifully illustrated four-color guide you will:

  • Discover visual poetry in the creative process
  • Use less to say more with your subject matter
  • Learn to see light, color, shape, and expression
  • Understand what gear is essential
  • Create compelling portraits
  • Make lasting memories of your family and kids
  • Capture the outdoors and adventure
  • Begin the transition from amateur to professional
Chris also includes exclusive interviews with such photographers as: Steve McCurry, Chris Rainier, John Sexton, Rodney Smith, Joyce Tenneson, John Paul Caponigro, Marc Riboud, and Pete Turner.

Format: Paperback
A photography book with a difference, this one makes you think about the creative process, while including "workshops" and assignments, to get you working outside of your comfort zone.

Chris Orwig, has an interesting style of writing which appeals to my thought processes. Check out the linked PDF for a sample from the book to see if it appeals to you.

I am a great fan of Chris Orwig's training videos so I was looking forward to this book. I was a bit disappointed as there is not enough technical details or advice. The book is very airy-fairy.
