This latest addition to the Long Valley Books repertoire is just as useful and concise as the other books in the series. Author Ellen Bowness takes a lot of time and effort to put these books together and this really shows in the accuracy of the information provided here. Any photographer planning a trip to Snowdonia & North Wales in the future will find this title useful. There's a introduction to the area at the front before we delve into the the many beautifully photographic areas in ...
The Photographer's Guide To Scotland is the newest edition to Ellen Bowness' successful series, helping people to find the best photos in the UK's most photographed places. Previous offerings include guides to photographing the Lake District, Peak District and London. This edition covers Skye, Glen Coe and the Trossachs â some of the most photogenic locations Scotland has to offer. As with all Ellen's books, this guide is extremely comprehensive including maps of the area and lovely i...
The Photographer's Guide to London is the first book in the series to look at a city location rather than the countryside. Previous titles have looked at destinations like the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, and in keeping with the series this latest book provides a comprehensive and extremely useful guide to the locations in and around London that will provide fantastic photographic opportunities. When taking a break to the capital it can be hectic trying to plan what you're goin...
Soviet Ghosts is a compelling and interesting book that grants you an insight into an area of the world you'll most likely never get to visit â the abandoned buildings and places of the Soviet Union. The photos contained in this book are thought provoking and spooky. There are images of hospitals, old school gyms, and abandoned homes, theatres and public spaces that are in a dire state of disrepair. In each chapter of the book, the photographer gives a brief outline of the trip, why th...
Powerful Imagery â The Photographer's Insight is the latest e-Book from top travel photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich. Mitchell wants you to learn from his photos, and as such the book takes a few of his stunning images and deconstructs them so that you learn exactly how they were taken, giving you the tools to go out and have a go yourself. Each photo has different sections relating to it: the photo page, the story, objectives, light, overcoming challenges, creative decisions in the f...
Lens on life is a truthful and interesting look at documentary photography. Through documentary photography, the photographer aims to let the photos tell a story about a person, place or object and give the viewer a feel of what that object, person or place is about. This book is a recommended read for anyone looking to go into documentary photography and create a new documentary project. Award winning documentary photographer Stephanie Calabrese Roberts guides us through the magical world of ...
As with the [link=http://www.ephotozine.com/book-review/focus--found-faces-400]Focus: Found Faces book[/link], this is a book that takes one topic, which in this case is passages, and decorates every page of the book with them. It's fun to flick through and may give you inspiration to go out and shoot a similar project. It's reasonably priced but it's not a book that everyone will want to read.
Hot is Thijs' second book, designed and produced in the same style as his successful book Cold. Where Cold took is into the icy climate of the Antarctica, here Hot is a look at life in the Australian outback. The photographs are more people focused, with many environmental portraits mixed in with life, death and decay of the outback. If you liked Cold you will no doubt like this book. Thijs' photography is extremely good, he captures the things you would see and mixes this with the things you'd ...
I'd never heard of Tom Carter until one day when he appeared in our forums, in our gallery, in our pro portfolio section and on our other site add your face. It seems he did the same all over the web. His mission to blog the world about this new book. It wasn't surprising that a few days later it arrived in the office along with the most in-depth press release we've ever had. The book so actively promoted is 15x15cm and 638 pages deep. The unusual design means it won't sit well on the book...
The Venice carnival draws thousands of experienced photographers to the area to capture the colourful parades, so we see many great carnival pics. This collection appears to be the work of a photographer who decided he wanted to publish a book but ran out of good shots. There are some excellent ones, but many are little more than snap shots. Further investigation leads us to the Photographers' Note page, near the back of the book where he explains that quality set ups are impossible in such a cr...
