This is a beautiful book filled with lovely pictures and inspiring stories.

I was so engrossed with Studna's stories and observations that I read his entire book in two days! "Click" also contains samples of Studna's photographs.

Choosing Love One Frame at a Time, you sense more about the setting of a picture before snapping the shutter.

It's been said the two biggest fears people have are of death and public speaking. There's a third one high on the list for many: having your picture taken! Professional photographer Carl Studna addresses this fear and much more in his engaging new book "Click! Choosing Love One Frame at a Time"

"I do hate getting my picture taken. It's so damned exhausting," writes singer Kenny Loggins in one chapter. "Click" contains short stories from the famous and not so famous expressing similar feelings about appearing in front of a camera. "I have always HATED having my picture taken," says musician Karen Drucker in another chapter. I liked reading these stories as they gave me comfort to know my own hesitancy of being photographed is a fear shared by many others.

The true value of "Click", though, is in Studna's wise words on why we feel uncomfortable being photographed. He relates how our feelings about getting our pictures taken are reflections of how we show up in life. "What would it be like to be in front of a camera and fully embody the present moment?" Studna writes. "Can you imagine how powerful an experience that would be? Every picture would be a true reflection of your multidimensional, magnificent self!"

Ever since Eckhardt Tolle's "A New Earth" was published there has been much written about "living in the present moment". Studna delivers a similar teaching in an innovative and entertaining way. He relates different stories of people he has photographed, followed by his thoughts on human nature. "I continually witness a large percentage of folks who find it painful viewing pictures of themselves," the author writes. "Their inner critic seems to be easily triggered along with all past conditioning related to self-image that needs to be healed.

Format: Hardcover
I was looking forward to loving this book, but it just didn't (you'll forgive the pun) "click" with me.

Physically it's a gorgeous book - the photos are rich and vibrant and it's printed on all glossy paper, which I find aesthetically pleasing.

The opening essay by Studna set me up for a book I really wanted to read - one about letting our most authentic selves see the light of day, and finding the beauty and wisdom in that. However after that great opening, the book was a collection of essays by various writers that I found quite uneven. I also thought that Studna's chapters weren't as compelling as his opening essay.

I also found it odd that the very first guest essay by Kenny Loggins - in which he mentions that he and Studna are good friends and they've done photo shoots together - wasn't accompanied by an image. In a book by a photographer that's about bringing inner beauty and love to the surface, I wanted there to be an image of each of the writers.

With all that said, I think there is value in the book for fans of Studna's work, as well as for people who are struggling with having their photo taken. As a casual reader who doesn't fully fit into either of those categories, though, I wasn't in the right place to make a heartfelt connection with this book.

"What a total blessing to have the amazing Carl Studna share his wisdom, his work and his powerful artistry with the world. After having such joy from my photo session with Carl (and big love from all who see his pictures) I'm so excited that he's sharing himself with the world. Prepare to be inspired and uplifted!" Love, Karen Russo

I read this book and it really called me to look at myself and the ways in which I show up in the world. Carl's gift, from my point of view, is that he invokes within each of us the question "are you ready to be authentic?". His beautiful writing style, the glorious photographs and lovely stories make this book a MUST for any library.

A wonderful book that talks about much more than getting your photo taken. It is a vulnerable and intimate portrait of a way of living and being in the world that is loving, aware and present, compassionate, open and vulnerable and completely authentic. Some great wisdom for living a richer, fuller, more harmonious life.
Along with the stunning photographs of some well known subjects, the book also has some intimate and personal stories from a cross section of contributors that are rich and thought provoking.
The personal and intimate style makes the writing very accessible, almost as if I am engaged in a conversation with the writer. I could read this book over and over again and get a lot from it every time. It already has a place on my nightstand!

I loved every page of this book, not only the inspirational stories, and wonderful photos but the opportunity to see and learn more about myself. Through the lens of this master photographer we see a path that leads to becoming more joyful and present with others and ourselves."

I recently purchased my copy of Click!: Choosing Love One Frame at a Time by Carl Studna. I already knew that Carl was an amazing photographer. But what I did not know about Carl was that he not only captures the physical energy of the people he photographs, but through his unique format helps us to see as well, the special gifts within each of them.

The narrative that accompanies the photographs, which includes writings from the those featured, is powerful and nurturing. Anyone who owns this book will be inspired!
