5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced information and consider this book essential!, 10 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Creative Photography Handbook: A Sourcebook of More Than 70 Techniques and Ideas (Hardcover)
Its easy to go through a lot of photography books these days that specialise in only a certain type of photography, especially digital and 35mm. Though this particular book does not seek to point out the pros and cons but instead concentrates upon the generation of high-standard photos.
Lee Frost is an excellent writer with regards to providing examples as well as describing how to achieve certain results, to boost this he is an outstanding photographer, though he can relate to the amateur by explaining specifically how he achieved the final piece. He goes into a lot of detail about filter types and what situations they best work in, as well as the pros and cons of certain camera and lense types.
The book is divided into two sections. The first concentrates upon the practical aspects of photography, such as focusing in difficult conditions as well as scene composure etc. The second section looks at different types of photography, such as portraits and landscapes and goes into details about the best kinds of films to use as well as shutter speeds etc.
One way or the other this is a book filled with ideas, with many details that I have since found invaluable. There probably is not a better book than this for going into high detail about a broad range of subjects.
