Guy Tillim: Second Nature

Presented in a landscape format, this book has very little words but what it lacks in words it makes up for in images. The book documents Guy Tillim's travels by placing one, large image on each page that's surrounded by a huge amount of white space to ensure all attention falls on each individual shot. There's an eclectic mix of imagery with seascapes and shots of beaches sat alongside excellent examples of street photography. However, unless you're a particular fan of Tillim's work, i...

The Bigger Picture: The Essential Business Guide for Photographers

If you're looking for photography technique advice such as tips on f stops, focal lengths and framing you're looking at the wrong book as this title's all about making money from photography. The author gives photographers advice, facts, ideas and even a few leads to help them succeed in a market that grows more competitive every day. A big plus for this book is it's centred around the UK market. Also, the advice art directors and picture editors have to offer in chapter seven is really ...

Rabari - Encounters with the nomadic tribe

This e-book is unusual because not only does it have a documentary side that gives you an insight into a particular group of people it is also full of hints, tips and background information on how each of the ten shots featured in the book were taken. I was surprised by this as when I first read the title I though it was going to be just another book that covers the journey of a photographer but I was wrong. It's taken two styles of book and mixed them together really well to produce a serie...

Creative EVIL Photography

OK, just so we can be clear from the start, this book has nothing to do with becoming an evil photographer in the sense that you want to take over the world and not be nice to anyone any more. What it does mean is you'll become better at using mirrorless cameras also known as Electronic-Viewfinder-Interchangeable-Lens (EVIL for short). There's a lot to work through in this book with a wealth of information covering various aspects of EVIL photography. It begins by telling the reader what an ...

Making Movies with your iPhone

If you can take photos with your phone it makes sense that you can shoot video too. But is it something you've ever considered doing? If your answers no you may want to take a look at the latest title Ilex have added to their iPhone tutorial book range because as the name suggests, it's all about making movies with iPhones. The book covers various aspects of film making from shooting full-length films to recording short home videos. There's also tips on how you can edit and publish the movie...

Envisioning Family: A Photographer's Guide to Making Meaningful Portraits of the Modern Family (Voices That Matter)

This book is bursting with so much knowledge that every photographer, from beginner level up to those who've taken this sort of imagery before, will find useful. As well as looking at the obvious topics such as camera equipment, lighting, setting up a shoot etc. Tamara begins by looking at what a family means/is and shares her experiences too. Some, like myself, may find this a slightly odd way to begin a photography title but I'm sure they'll be others out there who enjoy reading this backg...

Android Photography: A Guide to Mobile Creativity

There are plenty of titles now reaching the market designed to help people make the most of iPhone cameras but these books aren't much use if you have an android phone. Don't worry though, as Ilex have released Android Photography: A Guide to Mobile Creativity to help those with android phones take the best photos they can with their phones. Like with their Art Of iPhoneography title this small book is a mix of app advice, creative tips and photos from various photographers. It's well il...

Adventure Sports Photography: Creating Dramatic Images in Wild Places

This book is a little gem that anyone who's interested in adventure sports photography should take a look at. Equipment is covered in detail before the book moves on to basic composition tips and lighting advice. The book then becomes more specific, focusing on particular activities and locations. Tom has really shared a lot over the course of the title both in words and inspirational imagery. The language is easy to understand and the title's layout makes it even easier to work through...

This is Strobist Info: Your Setup Guide to Flash Photography

This book has left me feeling a little puzzled. Don't get me wrong, most of the images in it are great, I'd even go as far as saying inspirational in places, but the lack of words left me wondering how much someone would actually learn from this title. The first couple of chapters go through the basics of some of the kit strobist fans use, they explain a few of the photography basics(ISO, shutter speed etc.)and give a couple of examples of how some set-ups work. So far you're probably thinki...

Practical HDR (2nd Edition)

There doesn't seem to be much middle ground when it comes to HDR as people will either love it or hate it. However, in the latest revised edition of David Nightingale's book, all based around the use and application of HDR, even those who say they dislike it may soon be warming to the idea of using this technique in some of the work they produce once they've read a few pages. The book is full of excellent, practical examples of how HDR, when used correctly, can work and help the photographer...
