Explorations in Photography: Adventures and Advice for Advanced Amateur Photographers.
This richly illustrated how-to book helps good photographers become better photographers. At 45,000 words and 240 illustrative photos, this book serves up a lot of information in readable, bite-sized chunks. In 40 short-to-medium length essays, the book covers photography from before the shoot all the way to final editing. The book concludes with a bonus chapter on photo restoration.
Spiced with examples from the author's adventures and experiences, Explorations in Photography is fun, informative, and stimulating.
To get the shot, author Eric Hatch has hung from bridges, leaned out of airplanes, and perched on ledges. He has placed lights behind waterfalls, shot outdoors at midnight, and risked his gear shooting from water level in rushing rivers.
To help readers get the shot, Explorations in Photography covers issues of motivation, safety, travel, and just plain asking for directions.
Chapters discuss story-telling in photography, how to use fill lighting outdoors, and how to shoot effective landscapes. Many other specific situations are covered.
The book gives you practical advice on sorting treasures from trash to save storage space, editing, workflow, and a detailed conception-to-published diarly of a fine-art landscape. The book concludes with a "bonus chapter" on Photo Restoration.
The book is written to be enjoyable reading. As one reviewer put it, "it's like having a private conversation with your favorite teacher."
