Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The most spectacular sight is not necessarily the most photogenic, Bower reminds us, and makes his point with subtle views of his local countryside, England's Lake District, or remote places in the American West. Quaint Scottish and Bavarian castles, with the whiff of decay, also attract his lens, but less important than subject matter is Bower's explanation of the scene's variable factors--particularly, as always, light. Like most pros, Bower disdains the fad for autofocus cameras and directs his experienced advice at the dedicated hobbyist. That person will always wish to experiment with the variety of camera bodies, lens types, exposure times, and filters, so to those who habituate public libraries before heading to the outdoors goes this practical, pretty album. Gilbert Taylor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Brian Bower does it again with a great Leica book. Many color photos taken by summicrons, summiluxes, and most other Leica lenses on mostly Kodachrome 25 and 64. Great book on how to use the Leica systems to take landscape and cityscape photographs for optimal results. Highly recommend.
