The Art of Photographing Water: Rivers, Lakes, Waterfalls, Streams & Seashores Reviews
There are two different approaches authors take to photography instruction. In the first, which I call narrative, the author tells you about the topic and provides pictures to illustrate the teaching points. In the second, which I call exemplary, the author provides a picture and then tells you what considerations went into the choices that he made in taking the picture.
I bought the digital version of this book in hopes of having a guide to take with us on our holiday. I wanted to take some fantastic water shots while I was gone. This book fails on so many levels:
This book is a good reference for beginers, with some helpful hints for the advanced. The photgraphs used to illistrate the text are good and he gives the reasoning behind why the shoot was taken. I will probably glance through this book from tome to time just to get general ideas durning those times when I start going stale looking for shots.
Not a lot of new info and worst of all, the photos chosen to illustrate the points are not at all impressive.
