fine art floral photographs.
This is a picture book with the pertinent information for each shot given should you be tempted to learn by doing and give a go at it yourself.
His unusual use of f stop and prime lenses were eye opening to me and inspired me to get my prime lenses out of the closet.
There is just enough tech talk to get one going but it is the powerful and poetic quality of his pictures that take this book right into the digital age.
This is a film book and for some might be a waste but the use of composition and his generous attitude toward his art is another
reason I so enjoyed this book.
However if you are looking for post capture and adobe fun and facts this book is not for you However if you are looking for an expressed aesthetic this will be a great addition to the library.The service was fast as well and the book in near new condition.
I recommend that you get the book and use it as a starting point to move your flower photography up.
This book has even more of his fine artistic images of flowers. And I learned more tips from this book than from Fine Art Nature Photography. There are quite some "subtle" tips buried in his writing.
I like this book more than Fine Art Nature Photography. Since I gave 4 stars to Fine Art Nature Photography, this book got 5 stars.
This book is great for those who enjoy Tony Sweet's artic images and would like to learn the techniques.
This is not a book that explains how to use techniques. Basically there is a picture on the right page and an explanation of why the picture was taken on the left page. It does tell what equipment was used along with the descriptions, but mainly this book should be used for inspiration. If you already have most of the technical aspects of your equipment figured out but are still left wanted something more, this book is a nice break from the typical photography book that talks about shutter, aperture, rules, etc. This book also makes a nice coffee table book since you don't have to know anything about photography to appreciate the photos.
If you want some inspiration to take photos of flowers, this book is great!
