Creative Portrait Photography: Innovative digital portraiture to reveal the inner subject

This latest offering from Natalie Dybisz, a.k.a Miss Aniela, is as different and quirky as you would expect. Creative Portrait Photography is just that. Miss Aniela is definitely no stranger to the creative, and in this book, the aim is to “reveal the inner subject”. Miss Aniela uses herself as the model in a lot of the shots, and many are extremely brave and adventurous. Her work has a surreal beauty that not many can achieve. Her floating illusions in particular are enjoyable. In terms...

Advanced Digital Black & White Photography

You might first think that Advanced Digital Black & White Photography would be a narrow subject field. But when you begin to read this clever and informative book, you soon realise that this is not the case. The book is in five sections, beginning with taking the shots, then moving through to converting images to black and white, fine tuning your images, digital image work flows and presentation issues. In this updated second edition, it seems that if something is wroth knowing about the...

Behind The Image: Research In Photography

Behind The Image: Research In Photography is the third book in the creative photography series. It is a comprehensive and well thought out guide to how to put together an effective portfolio, and talks the reader through the process very effectively. It begins right at the beginning with a chapter on how to begin researching your project, and goes right through to what the impact of your research will be in the wider world. Once you have planned your research, the book goes into detail o...

Border Country

This book by Berlin based Irish photography James Clancy is called Border Country. The title derives from a name that James uses for his uneasy condition of heart and mind that possesses him from time to time. The book has a short two page introduction (in German and English) to explain his mind set and the photos that follow. And what follows is a wonderful collection of black & white images of decaying woodland and derelict buildings recorded with attention to the finest of details. So...

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 ...
