does try to author interesting and fresh photography books, with his 50 projects
he has done it again. The book presents neatly presented and inspirational
projects dealing with a diverse range of subjects. I am sure there will be
of plenty of digital only advocates who may not want use the film suggestions
but the idea of the book is to get you out of the point and shoot doldrums
and get discipline into your photography endeavours without stifling creativity.
I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is willing to try new ways with
their imaging making.
. . . Big mistake! This book is a revelation.
Firstly - none of the 50 suggestions are rocket science. Most people who own a camera of any sort will be able to get through something in this book with some success.
Whether using film or digital media, all of Lee's suggestions are very un-exclusive. You don't need to be a massively creative person to make beautiful imagery - because the book will show you how.
Secondly - even if you are a relatively experienced amateur or professional - I would be very surprised if you were already aware of ALL the techniques in this book. Many are well-known. Some are quite commonplace
- but a lot are simple, easy-to-understand but creative practices. With not too much difficulty, your results should be a presentable, even 'frame-able' image & isn't that really what most people are after when doing personal work?
If you buy this book, or are bought it - set aside some spare time. You are likely to be making quite a lot of beautiful pictures in the near future!
It is full of useful information and some really great ideas to help kickstart or advance your hobby so even if you have a fair bit of experience, then it's definately worth a look.
Although if you are very advanced in your craft, please don't be put off by my comments. This could well be usefull for even the most professional photographer, I'm just a little too green to be able to say.
11 out of the 50 suggestions here are about using a new camera (including a scanner). Using a toy camera is included twice. Panoramic cameras are included twice (once for vertical use).
5 of the suggestions are not about taking photographs at all: mixed media printing, montage, three of a kind, making a blog and using print-on-demand services.
It takes 5 sections to get across the idea of simplicity in composition: isolation, details, keep it simple, patterns and shapes.
It takes 5 sections to talk about light: dawn, dusk, storms, night and low light
That leaves 14 about subjects and 12 about technique.
One section is about "Taking a holiday". That's just taking the mickey.
All in all a lazy and unsatisfactory book.
A beautiful book with wonderful pictures throughout and great advice and tips - I am really pleased with my purchase :)
Would make a wonderful gift for the keen amateur or buy it for yourself!
