5.0 out of 5 stars A real gem, November 21, 2011

This review is from: 25 Lessons I've Learned about Photography...Life (text only) (Kindle Edition)
Lorenzo's "25 Lessons..." is a gem of a book: Part autobiography, part self-help treatise and partly an inspirational essay intended specifically for aspiring photographers, he manages to speak clearly and in a heartfelt way about the trials and joys of self-expression, with or without a camera in hand. The book itself is a beautiful manifestation of the philosophy of life he aspires to: seize the day, go for broke, be yourself, Lorenzo tells us, and with this book he DOES it. His primary message and his folksy and easy conversational style fit right in with the business model of this book (Lorenzo has chosen to make it available very, very cheaply here on Amazon so everyone with any interest in reading it can get a copy without thinking twice), and I swear that his occasional misspellings and malapropisms could be intentional, a way of saying "the important thing is to get it out and to say it and not to worry excessively about other people's ideas of what does and what does not constitute great art". I loved this book, made pages of notes to myself as I read it the first time over the course of a week or so, and then one rainy day I read it again all the way through in one sitting.

Delightful. It costs 99 cents. You owe it to yourself. Get a copy.
