We do not teach photography; we show you how to 'burn' the knowledge and skills you need deep into the 'firmware' of your brain. Meet your authors: Professor Bob Ryan ARPS FRSA: a specialist in analysis and the development of expert judgement. This book builds upon decades of his work in the development of deep-learning and the activation of non-conscious skills. Here is a small sample of what has been said about Bob as a photographer, image analyst and educator: 'A highly accomplished, wildlife photographer' (Chris Weston - amongst the top 50 most influential photographers); 'in the top ten percent of image analysts' (Jon Fishback - PSA Director of Education Services at the Photographic Society of America); and as an educator: 'student evaluations consistently rank Bob amongst the top three academics on Manchester's Global MBA' (Professor Elaine Ferneley, Global & MBA Director, Alliance Manchester Business School). Andy Beel FRPS: a photographic alchemist who can turn the most ordinary and uninspiring of subjects into photographic gold. His specialism, developed over 30 years of intense effort, is in black-and-white photography. Realizing how Bob's deep-learning methods could radically foreshorten his own struggle for mastery, he now uses them to inspire his own work and to teach others. Here is a small sample of what his clients, workshop participants and talk audiences say about Andy's work as a photographer and teacher: 'truly stunning' (Simon Galloway, Group Picture Editor, Bristol News & Media (Bristol Evening Post)); 'as always you are an inspiration' (David Bathard FRPS AWPF, Frome-Selwood Photographic Society); 'superb tuition, I learned an awful lot from you' (Jay Charnock FRPS).

European Fields

At the beginning of the 1995 football season, Hans van der Meer set out to take a series of football photographs that avoided the clichéd traditions of modern sports photography. In an attempt to record the game in its original form--a field, two goals and 22 players--he sought matches at the bottom end of the amateur leagues, the opposite end of the scale to the Champions' League. And he avoided the enclosed environment of the stadium and tight telescopic details and hyperbole of action photography. Preferring neutral lighting, framing and camera angles, he chose instead to pull back from the central subject of the pitch, locating the playing field and its unfolding action within a specific landscape and context. He was heavily influenced by the old tradition of photography in which a wide view of the action often resulted in elements of the locality being present in the image. Van der Meer began by focusing on sites within the Netherlands and in 1998 he published Dutch Fields, followed by a DVD, Flemish Fields, in 2000. His European odyssey has since taken him from small towns in the remote regions of Europe--from Bihariain in Romania to Björkö in Sweden, from Torp in Norway to Alcsóörs in Hungary, from Bartkowo in Poland to Beire in Portugal--and to the fringes of the major conurbations of Greece, Finland, England, France, Germany, Scotland, Switzerland, Holland, Slovakia, Denmark, Ireland, Wales, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Spain and Italy. These acute and subtle observations of the poetry and absurdity of human behavior connect the game of football to the basic futility of the human condition. The small tragicomedies are dwarfed by the serenity and permanence of the natural or manmade world that surrounds them but in their pathos can be found the original passion and humanity of the game.

Creating an idealized image of a subject is a portrait photographer's job. However, the approach is not quite formulaic. From one subject to the next and one day to the next, there are different goals and scenarios—on Monday, you may be tasked with photographing your subjects under cloudy skies on a beach; on Tuesday, you may need want to downplay your client's wide hips in the studio; on Wednesday, you may want to create dramatic lighting for an actor's portfolio—on-stage. Every day, there is a unique challenge to meet, often under varying conditions. So, how do you make a magically good portrait during every shoot? In this book, Bill Israelson shows you how to tackle the problem of creating a great portrait of your every client. Beginning with a discussion on equipment essentials, breaking the discussion into two topics—gear for studio work and portable equipment for location work. Next, you'll learn simple posing strategies for making women, men, kids, and groups looks their best in any presentation. You'll learn how to position the body from head to toe to maximize assets and downplay common problem areas. Lighting is the backbone of every image. In the studio, you have complete control over every facet of the lighting—from its hardness or softness to its color temperature and direction. On location, the basic principles of good lighting still apply—but the quality and quantity of light is subject to change. Israelson shows you how to harness the available light and supplement it when needed to create saleable images every time. With straightforward, jargon-free text and a wide range of image examples, this book will help you quickly learn how to improve your portrait results to create client-pleasing portraits every time.

Now that you’ve bought that amazing new DSLR, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take those great shots. One key element is composition—the creative arrangement of components in the shot, and the way a viewer’s eye travels through an image. With Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots, author and photographer Laurie Excell starts with the basics of composition and explores how the elements of color, shape, angles, and contrast work to create compelling images. Contributing photographers, John Batdorff, David Brommer, Rick Rickman, and Steve Simon, provide unique perspectives on black and white, sports, art history, and other subjects related to composition. Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera. Follow along with your friendly and knowledgeable guides, and you will learn about: Key camera features that affect composition, including the exposure triangle (ISO, aperture, and shutter speed) Shadow and light and how to direct the viewer’s eye to your subject Lines and shapes that create visual paths to points of interest in your image The role of color—using complementary or contrasting colors—to add your own unique artistic expression Spatial relationship and placing your subject within the frame for portraits, action shots, or landscapes And once you’ve got the shot, show it off!

Picturing the Maghreb critiques photographic and verbal representations, with a focus on four of the most prominent French-language writers of recent years: Michel Tournier, J.M.G. Le Cl-zio, Tahar Ben Jelloun and Le=la Sebbar. Their activist writing reframes a picture of Maghreb produced by two centuries of Orientalist misrepresentation. The book explores photography as a metaphor for other sorts of representation and examines the cultural impact of actual photographs.
