The explanations are problematic: they touch the surface of the topic, but don't go into sufficient detail to make the information crystal clear. Facts are presented, not so much explained. In some ways it seems that the author thinks he is preaching to the choir: if you're already familiar with infrared photography, why would you buy this book? Sorry about the rhetorical question. We buy the book for detailed information that explains the process. We want step-by-step instructions on the process not brief explanations. On the other hand, the author feels it's important to explain the familiar technique of dodging and burning - a process that's described in every basic photography book. This short discussion would make some sense if dodging and burning infrared prints differs from conventional prints, but the author doesn't suggest any difference.
Even for readers who own the first edition, this book is a worthwhile resource. Additional topics covered in this edition include hand coloring of b&w infrared images, and Kodak's new color infrared slide film.
Mr. Paduano's teachings inspired me to try infrared photography; and thanks to him, it's now one of my specialties. Following the instructions in his books, I've won 5 ribbons (all for b&w infrared images) in professional state, national and international photographic competitions. The methods presented in this book give great results and I encourage anyone who has wondered about infrared photography to read it!
is limited and what there is is confusing. The book contains only
100 pages and 60 of those are photos without any details. I wouldn't mind if the photo's were good and printed well but they are not. The only real use for this book is to inspire you to do better!
