This book has given a whole new perspective on street photography, with a whole interview with a street photographer based out of a small town in Oregon. If you are like me, and live in a moderately to sparsely populated area, this book is for you: it will encourage you to pursue street photography in a different but no less exciting way.
The Essentials of Street Photography will also teach you about technique, equipment, etc. It will not go out recommending expensive gear or anything, so that's also a big plus for those in a budget.
And last, but not least; I had a technical concern about the book before purchasing so I decided to contact the photographer. To my surprise, he responded very promptly and has been beyond helpful. His availability and involvement are outstanding. Very thankful for that.
Great and easy read. Will not disappoint.
I was hesitant to spend $20 on a kindle-only photography book, but thought I would give it a shot figuring my kindle fire is a multimedia device so it should do well for reading about photography and inspecting the photos. The problem is that the images included are so low-res that I feel they are almost useless. While reading, the included images are about thumbnail size which is ok to get an idea about composition. Double clicking them will open them up fully in the window, but they don't appear to be any better quality than the thumbnails. Pixelation is rampant. I've given up on trying to inspect them for any detail about exposure or even see a person's facial expression. Just very poorly done.
The written part of the book has been good and useful. I'm only about 30% of the way through it, so I can't comment entirely on the written word. I just wanted to point out the low quality images for a kindle-only release. Would have rather had a print version.
If you have the time, check out his web site; you can see James's work there.
