The A-Z of Creative PhotographyAuthor: Lee Frost
Publisher: David & Charles
Format: 240 x 195mm softback, 160 pages, over 200 pictures covering 70 subjects
This is a great dipping book. Lee Frost takes 70 different photographic subjects and effects he then describes the equipment required to attempt them and the techniques required to complete them. Some examples are:-
With such a wide range of subjects covered some are done well and some a little less so but overall each subject has enough information to get you going. Its the sort of book that gets you thinking to yourself Yes I could try that!.
Except for obvious subjects like Pinhole Photography the book is equally applicable to the digital or film user. Descriptions are accessible to the beginner.
Steve Chong sent me his comments about this book. I find Lee Frost's The A-Z of Creative Photography is one book everyone should read. He illustrated so many techniques and tips on how to take photographs under various topic. Landscape, low light, still life and even portrait using natural light. A must read for both professional an serious amateur.
Searching by the ISBN on Amazon goes directly to the book.
