Not only does she do all of these elements well, she teaches them brilliantly too. A good photographer and a good teacher of photography (like most pro's who teach anything to anyone) can often be mutually exclusive but Lindsay understands her audience and cuts through all the jargon to give us simple, bite sized brilliant little tid bits to inspire us and push us along.
Not only does the book do this, it also provides her own voice - her inspirations (she name drops all of them throughout, giving us reams and reams of additional, insightful research material) she also talks to us about her life, what resonates with her (like the chapter on photographing someone close to us and not waiting to do so - and her example of her grandmother). This is what is so great about the book - we actually get to understand how she thinks and we can then begin to apply that to our own work.
The professional photography field can be dominated by people who prefer technicals, jargon, numbers and expensive gear over those that are at the opposite end - those who talk about inspiring us, developing us creatively, but leave us a little empty with the actual "how-to" or with enough detail to empower us to go off and do it. Lindsay happily moves about from both ends of this spectrum and continually sits in the middle of someone supremely technical, but able to distill things down to appeal to our inner creative desires.
This is a rarity and Creative 52 is the epitome of this rare ability.
Each of the projects is also broken down into sections. Description-where the overall project is described. Inspiration-where the author shares the photographers that inspired her for this project are shared, and the reasons why. My Solution- where Lindsay talks about the image that is connected to the project and how she developed the idea behind it. Each picture also has the metadata included which is a plus.
I will be going back to this book over and over as I continue to develop my photographic style and skill.
