It's all good advice, the kind of stuff we need to internalize to get better. One featured quote is "Follow your passion and you'll be amazed at the results you are able to achieve." True enough but hardly an insider secret.
Jeff Wingall does show us some stunning pictures and his commentary is useful. If you're stuck in a rut and are looking for fresh ideas you might find or be reminded something helpful here. If you're an experienced photographer, you've probably heard it before.
There are some interviews and advice from a couple of amateurs who win contests. There's a list at the back of contests to enter. But most importantly, there's a wide range of excellent photos to peruse.
Looking at these gorgeous examples of actual price-winning images, you get an overall feel for the quality, the uniqueness, the purity, the focus.... and a lot more that is needed to make outstanding pictures that can not only compete but can win. All the shown examples have won. That makes this book a very fine measuring tool for the quality of your own work. The book covers a broad scope of contests. Jeff gives very good info about what is out there, the levels of the contests, the frequency, the prizes, the benefits of competing. Jeff encourages us to go to work as if competing in a contest. Entering (and you don't have to win every time) competitions in itself enhances the quality of your work. I like his style of commenting, informational and to the point, Jeff indicates what the essence is of every shot at hand. The original makers also have a say about their work and the fun of competing. And, yes, the even greater fun of winning. To win is aknowledgement, sure, but in this book you feel it's fun and exciting just to be in it. And: runners-up get published just the same often. Competition is wonderful way to get really involved in image-making, to make sure you make stunning (in every meticulous aspect) pictures.
After digesting this book, you know what's in store and what to do to get there.
Needless to say: these (winning) images are great. Just for that reason this book is worth having, browsing through it time and time again.
And who knows what a prestigious win can do for you?
