The title (full title) could not be more accurate. Very nice book. I own the first edition in hardcopy, and decided to buy this edition for Kindle. I would not say this is a how-to book, a manual, or a textbook. It is more of an insight of the author’s evolution as an artist, and the way he executes his self expression through photography. He shows procedures and techniques by no means claiming they are the best or even good ones, but the ones which have worked for him. Some people may not like the style, as he mixes philosophy with photography. I read reviews which claim he is not straight forward, that he tends to deviate from the subject. However, I believe this is the right approach if you look at photography as a media of self expression rather than as a plain money making business. I really enjoyed and would recommend for what it is.

This is for the advanced amateurs once they have got … This is for the advanced amateurs once they have got the mechnical and electronic features of their camera sorted. A lot of B&W photography and some sections on colour photos. About mood, framing and lighting and making your photos into art. Read ‘The 35mm Photographer’s Handbook’ first and do a few years of taking pictures and then come back to this………..

Very Good but… Well I almost gave this 5 stars.It is quite profound and well thought out.The author covers in depth discussions about the true nature of photographyThe text is very well written, and points well argued.I would have liked more street photos and portraits.That said, I really appreciate the work that went into thisReview update: I have read quite a lot of it now, and find the thought process and concepts very solid.This is a serious work on the subject, and I might easily have rated it 5 stars, not 4.
