It's thorough and yet still a pleasure to read.

The mystery is taken out of how to achieve the best results when photographing transparent and translucent surfaces.

I may not like Author X, and that author might work quite well for you.

One look at this book and its not hard to tell it is going to be different than any other photography book. The mystery is taken out of how to achieve the best results when photographing transparent and translucent surfaces. I gained confidence and learned a lot of useful information when incorporating elements such as water, glass, ice and plastic into my images. I was also impressed with the detailed breakdown provided by this book which clarifies the effect a certain lighting situation will have on the subject. This is one of the more unique and interesting photography books out there.

What appeals to me about this book is its unique content. This is the first book I have read regarding shooting translucent surfaces! Since it is, I consider it my Bible! There is a lot to be learned from another great Amherst publication.... Highly recommended for anyone interested in this subject.

Great information on shooting clear and translucent surfaces. The detail provided makes this book a valuable reference tool for anyone interested in shooting these sometimes difficult surfaces. This book has inspired me and given me confidence to incorporate translucent surfaces in to my images.

I purchased this book based on the Amazon reviews and a limited Amazon preview. This time the reviews were not accurate and borderline misleading. While the book contains some useful information, a person can find better and more detailed information on the internet on how to photograph glass, controlling light reflections on glass, and photographing water. Furthermore, some of the photos in the book lacked luster, were out of focus and were not properly exposed or edited. In my opinion, the photo on the cover was the best in the book.

Format: Paperback
Rand tackles one of the most difficult subjects with precision, depth, and clarity. Every photographer must deal with photographing transparent and translucent objects, and few become expert at this challenging subject. You'll find everything you need to know here to deal with reflections, distortion, and other aspects you're likely to encounter when photographing water, glass, and similar objects. This unique guide is an essential reference for any serious photographer.
