5.0 out of 5 stars A must if you want to be healthy!, 30 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the book to read if you want to get real health from inside out. I was already a vegan but now, after following the insight knowledge from Super Imnunity, specialy focusing on vegetables and beans, and the delicious recipes at the end, I feel more light and nourished than ever. The main formula works wonders on your system: Health=Nutrients/Calories. Go for it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book!, 1 May 2011

A book built the old ways, about the great photographers of all time. With in depth details and information: bio, photographs, techniques, philosophy, of every great creator on photography from its early beginnings until the present time of the book, late eighties.
The examples chosen, wisely picked, show exactly what the artist meant to say with the scope or his work, and how it was made. You will learn. And it's a pleasure to see how these books were built. I recommend it to all present photographers in the digital age. This is true photography, breed on a traditional darkroom, printed on true fibber photo paper, silver and all!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on Monochrome Silver Traditional Photography, 18 Oct. 2010
I have started doing Photography the old way, using film cameras in Medium and Large Format, some two years ago. I have built my own home darkroom.
I have been experimenting and learning, reading all the books I can on the subject, old and new. And photographing a lot.
So I thought I knew something already.
But, upon start reading this book I realized I knew nothing at all. Because this is a full theoretical book but at the same time a very practical one. You learn by analyzing subjects in depth with technical graphs, and then apply it with easy to use techniques I have seen nowhere else. Awesome!
Then I love that DIY stuff. Your lab workflow will never be the same again, for sure. A joy to build and use.
And if you want to know something about moving your silver work to digital, there is something about it too.
I recommend this book to all of you out there willing to learn how to make true photography, from start to end!


Zone Systemizer for Creative Photographic Control (Dial&Book)
Zone Systemizer for Creative Photographic Control (Dial&Book)
by John J. Dowdell
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Zone System tool ever!, 4 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic tool for any serious photographer. It makes the use of the Zone System a childs play. Even if you only have a digital camera, but specialy for any of you b&w film people out there. The wheel is a joy to use, the book explains in detail how dial around your exposure settings. Also fun to use, I just love it. All you need is a basic lightmeter. Leave the computing on the tool!

This review is from: The Fine Print (Paperback)
This book is a wonderful lesson. If you want to know what true photography is, film, paper, silver, you can feel it in your fingers, smell it, black and white, no color distraction.
Fred Picker knows in depth what he is talking about, from experience, from kwnowledge, and shares is like few others. Some of the best in the field!
