3.0 out of 5 stars Proficient but Distant, 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Picture Perfect Practice: A Self-Training Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Taking World-Class Photographs (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
I was interested in this book and whilst I find it says the right things in terms of the photographer pointing out the subtleties of lighting and posing it all feels somehow cool and distant in tone. The subtleties between good and bad images are small but significant and its good that these are clearly and graphically demonstrated but very much a Californian vibe to this book... Be interesting to take Roberto to Croydon Town Hall on a wet November Saturday and see him in action when wedding number 4 is right behind you!

You can only do the best you can on the day, which includes the location, weather, time and whether or not your subjects are photogenic. Sure the qualities pointed out in this book will only make small differences to wedding no 4 in Croydon. But then with this kind of location I guess you need to steer the client away from Fine art and more towards a natural/photojournalism style... probably more for high-medium to high end wedding photographers.
