Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These four "how-to" books pretty much cover the gamut in landscape photography and portraiture. Each is intended as an introductory manual for amateurs working primarily in the 35mm format. Hope's two books deal explicitly with black-and-white photography. The emphasis is more on style than technique, which is their strength. There are chapters on technique and other practical matters, but the discussions of tone and texture as well as mood will be most helpful to those who wish to make original photographs that reflect an artistic sensibility. The striking design of each book also accentuates a wonderful sense of atmosphere that is tender yet ever so slightly dark and brooding. The author of a number of first-rate books on photography, Hedgecoe concentrates on color photography in his two latest offerings. Both books are filled with many practical and useful tips for making better landscapes and portraits. Each bit of advice is accompanied by photographs that serve as excellent examples of the points he is making. Like Hope's books, Hedgecoe's works are written in a clear, accessible style. Hope's will appeal primarily to those interested in refining their black-and-white photography, while Hedgecoe's will be of greatest value to those who would like to take better photographs for pleasure or business.

Once again, John Hedgecoe has called up his vast portfolio to illustrate a book on landscape photography that is both inspiring and educational. Hedgecoe covers a lot of ground in this book and always has an image to illustrate a particular point. The book is well organized and easy to understand. His pictures come from around the world and are very diverse. There are both black and white and color. I think this book by a master photography educator is good for someone looking for a good introduction that covers all aspects of landscape photography, or for more experienced photographers looking for new approaches to the subject. Many of the images could benefit from being larger, but that would necessitate an increase in price for a book that is now well worth the money.

This is another very helpful and clearly expressed photo novel from John Hedgecoe. There are many things to think of, analyze and try! It complement your creativity and had written like knowledgeable friend conversation style.
For those reviewer who doubt John Hedgecoe's qualification. 50-mm lens could be wide if you use MF camera 6x6 for example. And photography it is art, it is not military style manual of actions.
I proudly can recommend ANY of Hedgecoe's books as the best art of photography drills. It helps to develop photographic vision BTW, it helps a lot to understand composition. Learn before leave laughable reviews,

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A. Bennett on June 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
I'm afraid this book is simply horrid. The text is brief and vague, with a very limited amount of technical information. While each general topic of landscape photography (with a heavy emphasis on compositional elements, like the rule of thirds, lines, etc.) is covered, they are covered in less detail than a basic "how to" pamphlet handed out at camera stores. Most appalling of all, an enormous number of the example photographs are seriously flawed. So many horizons are grossly off, and more than a few look like they were taken by a twelve year old shooting with a disposable. At one point, a 50mm lens is described as "wide angle." These kinds of things make me seriously question whether the author is really qualified to be writing a serious book on technique.
This book would be valuable only to someone entirely unfamiliar with the basic tenets of composition, but there are many better general photography books that explain these things far more effectively than this. I give it 2 stars rather than 1 only because some of the black and white photos are very nice (although the attempt to cover black and white photography, like everything else in the book, is vaporous).
