Elliott Erwitt (Photofile)

Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. Now back in print, the series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography.

Elliott Erwitt (b. 1928), an American by adoption, has a humorous outlook that is reflected in his always elegant work. His photographs take advantage of the sudden coincidence, the fortuitous conjunction of objects and events, to reveal the ridiculous or comical sides of everyday life. Dogs are a favorite subject for Erwitt, often serving as a witty metaphor for human foibles. 74 duotone illustrations.

Walker Evans (Photofile)

Author:Gilles Mora
Type:Paperback
Notes:
The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price. Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography.

"The real thing that I'm talking about has purity and a certain severity, rigor, simplicity, directness, clarity, and it is without artistic pretension in a self-conscious sense of the word." Walker Evans himself provided this perfect definition of his own work. He photographed Depression-era America with a constant striving for objectivity, a kind of documentary neutrality. Nevertheless, the sculptural subtlety of his images and the close attention he pays to both people and things marked an entire generation of artists. 63 duotone illustrations.

Guy Bourdin (Photofile)

Author:Gilles de Bure
Type:Paperback
Notes:
The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price. Handsome and collectible, the books each contain some sixty reproductions, plus a critical introduction and a bibliography.

Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) was a fashion photographer whose talent and strength of vision were apparent even in his earliest works. He shared Helmut Newton's taste for controversy and stylization, but Bourdin's formal daring and the narrative power of his images exceeded the bounds of conventional advertising photography. Shattering expectations and questioning boundaries, he set the stage for a new kind of fashion photography. 65 illustrations in color and duotone.

Ansel Adams: Letters and Images, 1916-1984

Author | Mary Street Alinder (Editor)
Type | Book
Notes | This edition of Ansel Adams' book of letters - originally published in 1988 as a companion volume to his bestselling autobiography - will bring the letters of America's most beloved photographer/environmentalist to a new generation of fans." "Ansel Adams wrote literally thousands of letters to fellow photographers, environmentalists, politicians, family, and friends during his long life - letters that reveal the growth of the artist and the man, while contributing a unique overview of twentieth-century photography and the environmental movement. Among those with whom he corresponded are such eminent names as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, and Jimmy Carter.

From Library Journal
An impressive addition to Adams's work, this book clarifies the emotional and conceptual framework of many of his most familiar and stunning photographs by offering with them letters to and from family and friends. Adams is openly loving and loyal in many letters, receiving in return deep respect and affection as both an artist and a warm, likable man. Though he often states that his images are his sole means of self-expression, some of his letters contain lucid critiques of his work and others' that shall prove useful to scholars. Perhaps the most important correspondence is with Stieglitz and Weston, revealing shared enthusiasm for photography as art. For most libraries. David Bryant, Belleville P.L., N.J.

Author:David D. Busch
Type:Paperback
Notes:

Written with just the right balance of technology and techniques in mind, this guide provides you with the know-how on everything from getting acquainted with the basic key features of the technology (lenses, sensors and image processors, and exposure and focusing systems) to the nuances of various dSLR techniques (setting up speedy continuous-shooting burst modes to capture fast action, applying selective and sharp focus, and shooting under the lowest levels of light). Other topics explored include:

* Composing your shots with an accurate viewfinder
* Deciding how many pixels your camera needs
* Cleaning the sensor yourself

* Adjusting exposure and improving shutter speed
* Creating time-lapse sequences
* Fixing murky or contrasting photos

With so much subject area covered, Digital SLR Cameras & Photography For Dummies, 2nd Edition not only introduces you to the fundamentals of great picture-taking with a dSLR, but goes beyond the basics. Some of the more advanced topics discussed include working with the various formats of digital photos, minimizing shutter lag and first-shot delays, and fixing up your pictures with various image-editing programs.

Digital Photography For Dummies, Second Edition

Author:Julie Adair King
Type:Paperback
Notes:
If you're comfortable with the concept of photography but find the digital part a stumbling block, Digital Photography for Dummies will get you over the hump.

Author Julie Adair King, a photographer and graphics-software specialist, deftly explains such concepts as resolution, f-stop, and compression. She is also refreshingly upfront about the differences between film-based and digital photography, spelling out the latter's shortcomings early on. Her advice on all aspects of the field is well thought out and simple without being condescending. She informs readers, for example, that you needn't use high-pixel resolutions simply for placing images on a Web page. Such tips will come as a relief to fledgling photographers on a budget, or novices who may have thought they had to use the highest-quality settings at all times.

Aside from the technical concerns of working with the camera and computer, King also gives sound tips on composition and lighting. And since retouching is one of the principal benefits of digital photography, she spends a fair amount of time discussing photo-editing software. And while most of the examples are in black and white, the most important examples, gratefully, are included in a 16-page color plate section in the middle of the book.

For those of you considering jumping into the world of digital photography, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better guide to getting started than Digital Photography for Dummies. --John Frederick Moore --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Secrets of Lighting on Location: A Photographer's Guide to Professional Lighting Techniques

Author:Bob Krist
Type: Paperback
Notes:
This book is full of great tips on how to convert the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Although written a few years ago, all of the principles still apply today. The author covers all three flash modes - full manual, auto thyristor and TTL metering. (Ironically, because of the widespread use of digital and its instant feedback, full manual flash is now as popular if not more popular then ever before).

Lighting diagrams are provided for most shots along with both a brief summary and a more in-depth discussion - perfect for dipping into if you don't fancy reading the book cover to cover.

In most cases, only the finished result is shown but in a couple of instances, "before" and "after" pictures are included to emphasize the transformation the author's lighting has made. This is extremely useful as it removes a common excuse for lackluster results - "how come I never come across scenes like that". The answer, of course, is that neither does anyone, but that the successful photographer CREATES the scene. Of particular interest is Bob Krist's use of modifiers and gels to create eye-catching effects (e.g. turning a boring sickly green lab into a multi-colored high-tech wonderland).

All the equipment used throughout the book is portable and the author discusses the lighting gear he uses and why he chose the various pieces of equipment.

Numerous photographs and illustrations provide clear examples of the theories, while sidebars highlight special lighting questions. Expanded chapters on available light in portraiture, as well as new information on digital equipment and terminology make this a must have update!
