Here's a new photo technical book release from Focal Press that looks promising. I am always looking for great texts for classes, especially in trying to explain exposure values to beginning photographer. Sometimes I feel like I am up against a brick wall.
Rick Sammon shows us the difference between seeing and looking and how essential it all is. From the press realease, "In Creative Visualization, master photographer and photo educator Rick Sammon presents his proven methodology for creative digital photography. His signature inspiring and motivating approach opens creative avenues for photographers in a variety of genres."
The release continues:
"With easy-to-follow examples, including visual examples of "photo failures" side-by-side with successful ones, Sammon shows you how simple changes—with visualization, composition, post-processing, and more—can mean the difference between a snapshot and a great shot. This book, illustrated with more than 300 of Rick’s photographs, includes invaluable information about exposure, composition, subject choice, lighting, mood, and depth."
