And the images! The photos throughout the book are are astounding! They're clean, sharp, bright- no doubt the best of the best. As if that's enough, technical details are given for EVERY photo, - camera and lens used, F-stop, shutter speed, and a brief description by the photographer of the how the shot was conceived and made by the photographer as well!
I don't normally gush over photography books because they often seem to be light on information and value. But Tobin's book is a solid reference book that should be kept side by side with other recent great photography reference books, McNally's "Hot Shoe Diaries..." and Grecco's "Lighting and the Dramatic Portrait...".
For me, writing this in 2012 as a digital photographer, the weakness of this book is that many if not most of the photo examples were shot on film (the only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars). Now, because they provide the exact type of film, we know the ISO used to arrive at the exposure so the examples are still perfectly useful. But I imagine many if not all of the photographers in this book have either jumped in or been dragged into the digital format by now. The book needs a re-fresh from that standpoint only.
The other part that makes me glad I bought this book and the thing that keeps me going back to it is the "Up Close & Personal" section on pages 104-142. It profiles each of the photographers and lets them sum up in a few words what makes their photography unique. This is important because you have to know who you are as a photographer and what makes your images unique and valuable. They list their gear and what they cannot leave home without.Read more ›
The information in the book is worth far more than the any workshop I have been to, for a fraction of the cost. There is no "this is what you need to do". Instead, you have top photographers sharing what works best for them. I did not realize how much knowledge there would be in this book. I think almost every single sentence gave me something to think about. Not everything would work for me, but I can take what others have used and create something that is truly my own.
The photos don't plug the latest actions, but showcase timeless, classic, GOOD photography that you would want to place on your wall for ever.
This book isn't sugary pop, giving you a quick sugar high that will let you down hard. It is a fine bottle of wine that will only improve with age.
