Product description

About the Author

Born in 1981, Cora has been photographing since 2002. Her craft is unique in that she almost always has the finished, edited image in her mind when she releases the shutter. She opts to shoot infrequently but with great intention and purpose. Cora's visual language is clean and quiet. She likes light, bright images featuring harmonious, subtle, and desaturated colors, and she is a borderline perfectionist when it comes to designing her images. Her award-winning photography has been exhibited in international competitions.

Cora's diverse photographic interests include portrait, beauty, fashion, nude, erotic, and floral photography. Top quality color management is a part of her daily craft, which she produces consistently for initial exposures, fine-art prints, and everything in between.

Professionally trained in the cultural sciences, she works as a freelance graphic designer and photo editor for exacting photography publications. Together with Georg, she also works as a writer for magazine and book publishers and develops concepts for educational materials about photography. Her contract work ranges from stylish arrangement and ideal lighting for product photography to portraits and aesthetic nude and erotic images. She directs the contract photography curriculum for the artist's workshop at Artepictura. Additional information can be found at

Born in 1969, Georg has been photographing since 1984. His style is characterized by approaching his subjects closely, playing with sharpness and blur, and designing loudly and colorfully with off-kilter perspectives. His attention to detail is common across his interests in portrait, lifestyle, erotic, nude, travel, and detail photography. He sees subjects in everyday scenes that others tend to miss and he excels at capturing these details with a spontaneous and instinctive shooting style, though he prefers to thoroughly prepare portrait shoots conceptually.

His contract work as a photographer centers on lifestyle images, everyday scenes, and employee and company profiles. For the past five years, he and Cora have written for photography textbooks and magazines. Georg studied economics and social education, and as a management consultant he pairs his photographic expertise with extensive experience in project management and sales to help corporate clients with their visual representation and professional image design needs.

Georg has devised and independently built three structured courses of study for photography, including the photography department at the college in Rhein-Main, the photography school at the university in Lueneburg, and Artepictura Academy ( He is currently earning a teaching degree in Media Management in Wiesbaden.

3.0 out of 5 stars Begginers Book only- 13 May 2014
By Naz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sorry to say, this was yet another book for beginners- very basic stuff- The book started out good, and looked like it was really going to delve into the psychology behind things like line, color, light, and what makes a photo work, but then it just really reverted right back to very basic stuff- Wish I had taken the time to read the excerpts before buying- but I didn't- My mistake- I'm giving it 3 stars because every now and again the book gave tips that were a little above beginner level, but unfortunately they were far and few between- would have been nice to see more examples and talk on things like Gestalt theory- more indepth color analysis rather than the very basic 'yellow colors are warm and calming' etc- oh well-

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable value eBook 27 Feb. 2014

I have read many good books on different aspects of photography but, for the principles of constructing a good picture, this book is unsurpassed.For those not technically minded it could be enough to look at the illustrative examples and read their explanations. For the technically minded the text and pictures are sure to satisfy no matter what sub specialty of photographic expertise.

The fact that this book enthralled an advanced amateur should say it all. I cannot help but think any professional looking to improve his or her artistic approach to photography would benefit from a read, often.

Found this very helpful the author clearly explains some of the science behind how our brains interpret photographs and why we find some photos more pleasing than others. For any newbie this book should help them to compose their photos to get better results.

This is an excellent textbook. Most photography books cover the basic technical aspects, but not the creative side of photography. Recommended to anyone interested in improving their photographic creativity. A good read.
