Thom Rouse seems to have an unbridled artistic sensibility. In this book, he offers up for review sixty of his favorite fine-art images. Rouse takes photographers behind the scenes of his creative process, showing the starting point—always a portrait, captured by him—and then details the Photoshop tools and techniques he used and, sometimes, some “accessory” images that he adds into the mix, to create a dramatically different work of art. While the components and tone of each image vary from page to page, Rouse strictly maintains that his creative process is based on the idea that each work of art must, at its core, remain photographic. In other words, his fine-art works are enhanced, stylized portraits that transcend the limits typically self-imposed by portrait artists. His goal in creating the book is to educate and inspire other photographers—or, in the words of the artist—to “show you something you haven’t seen before.” This book features a collection of beautiful portraits that collide with a strange collections of elements—one portrait, entitled Shhhh, is coupled with ornamental wooden fish, goose wings, and parts of an aircraft; another, called Andromeda, uses complex Photoshop blending techniques and texture layers to create a Gustav Klimt-inspired feel in the photograph—to create a storytelling piece that elevates the portrait to a fine art category. On page after page, you’ll discover how Rouse conceptualized the featured work of art, the steps he took to bring the concept to life, and the curiously beautiful artistic portrait result.

There is a lot more to photography than simply picking up a camera, pointing it toward something, and tripping the shutter. Achieving a great photograph requires thought and preparation, an understanding of the photographic process, and a firm grasp of how light and composition affect a photo. There must be personal involvement and personal expression. There must be experimentation, with the recognition that only a small percentage of experiments end successfully. In this book, best-selling author and world-renowned photographer and teacher Bruce Barnbaum explores these seldom-discussed issues by drawing upon his personal experiences and observations from more than 40 years of photographing and teaching. In addition to photographs, Bruce also uses painting, music, and writing, as well as the sciences and even business, to provide pertinent examples of creative thinking. These examples serve as stepping-stones that will lead you to your own heightened ability to see and be creative. Creativity is a topic that is almost wholly ignored in formal education because most instructors think that it cannot be taught or learned. To the contrary, Bruce has proven that photographic seeing and creativity can be taught, learned, and improved. This book expands on the ideas that are central to Bruce's method of teaching photography, which he has used in workshops for the past 41 years. Included in the book are in-depth discussions on the following topics: Defining your own unique rhythm and approach as a photographer How to translate the scene in front of you to the final photograph The differences and similarities between how an amateur and a professional approach photography The differences between realism and abstraction, and the possibilities and limitations of each Learning to expand your own seeing and creativity through classes, workshops, and associating with other photographers Why the rules of composition should be ignored How to follow your passion When to listen to the critics and when to ignore them The book is richly illustrated with over 90 photographs taken by Bruce as well as other photographers.Seeing and creativity are difficult to teach, but not impossible. This very different, perhaps groundbreaking book is sure to inspire photographers of all skill levels-from beginners to seasoned professionals-to think deeply about the issues involved in creating successful photographs.

The acclaimed National Book Award winner gives us a collection of spellbinding new essays that, read together, form a jigsaw-puzzle portrait of an extraordinary man. With the publication of his best-selling Of Wolves and Men, and with the astonishing originality of Arctic Dreams, Barry Lopez established himself as that rare writer whose every book is an event, for both critics and his devoted readership. Now, in About This Life, he takes us on a literal and figurative journey across the terrain of autobiography, assembling essays of great wisdom and insight. Here is far-flung travel (the beauty of remote Hokkaido Island, the over-explored Galápagos, enigmatic Bonaire); a naturalist's contention (Why does our society inevitably strip political power from people with intimate knowledge of the land small-scale farmers, Native Americans, Eskimos, cowboys?); and pure adventure (a dizzying series of around-the-world journeys with air freight everything from penguins to pianos). And here, too, are seven exquisite memory pieces hauntingly lyrical yet unsentimental recollections that represent Lopez's most personal work to date, and which will be read as classics of the personal essay for years to come. In writing about nature and people from around the world, by exploring the questions of our age, and, above all, by sharing a new openness about himself, Barry Lopez gives us a book that is at once vastly erudite yet intimate: a magically written and provocative work by a major American writer at the top of his form. From the Hardcover edition.

Photographing female nudes is about more than just the body. For Laurie Klein, it is about capturing the feminine spirit. Laurie’s creative medium is nature. The landscape plays as much of a role in her photos as does the model. Laurie's unique way of using infrared photography, and the caring, personal way she captures her subject's innermost emotions becomes a transformational experience for both photographer and client. In this book, Klein details her techniques and her inspirations in creating these unforgettable images. Shooting nudes in nature is complex. The photographer needs to know when to start with the model and arrange nature around them or see something in nature and treat the model as part of the nature. Klein gives many ideas for posing models in relationship to nature and the landscape. She masterfully uses infrared photography to capture the beauty of the surroundings and the female form. Each photo in the book is accompanied by details of the location or setting, camera settings, composition concepts and insight into the idea and execution of the shot. Part of what makes Klein’s photos so unique and vibrant is that she develops a trusting environment that allows the subject to give themselves over completely to a transcendent photographic experience. Out of this usually comes a series of fine art portraits or a substantial book for them to enjoy, share and pass on through the generations. Using the body as a landscape, Klein crafts unique and sometimes abstract images that emphasize the beauty of the female form in different ways. Sometimes the simplicity of the image is the beauty of it. The infrared photography format provides striking contrasts between the skin tones and the natural surroundings. Tips are given for choosing unique locations that can work best for creating artful images like the ones in the book. Being able to improvise and set-up a shoot when discovering a unique setting or lighting scenario can be the key to crafting a stunning portrait. Sometimes the unexpected can occur and a prepared and creative photographer can turn that into a magical moment captured in infrared. Klein is recognized for her signature infrared photography style. This book provides in insight into her creative process.

With the introduction of digital photography, unprecedented numbers of people are flocking to the art form, trying their hand at creating effective photographs of people, landscapes, still lifes, and other subjects. As the ranks of photographers swell, it becomes more and more difficult to achieve a standout body of work—something that sets your work apart from the barrage of images we are all inundated with on a daily basis. As Laurie and Kyle Klein prove in their new book, infrared capture may be that magic bullet. Infrared photographs have a mystical feel. Before the dawn of digital capture, infrared light waves, which are invisible to the naked eye, could only be captured using specialized films that required precise handling and a level of technical proficiency that most photographers lacked. Today, infrared films are largely unavailable; digital infrared is the wave of the future, and most photographers have a retired digital camera (whether an older-model DSLR or an old point & shoot camera) on hand that they can permanently modify for digital-only capture. So, you’re ready to jump in and try your hand at producing wildly different images. Where do you start? In this book, Laurie and Kyle Klein present a brief history of infrared, then move on to discuss all of the nitty-gritty technical information you’ll need to understand how those invisible wavelengths will be recorded in your camera and the steps you’ll need to take to ensure the best-possible resulting photographs. The authors provide a plethora of sample images that show you how various materials—from skin, hair, and eyes to environmental subjects like the sky, trees, grasses, and clouds—will appear in your images. They also teach you how to previsualize the final image: You will learn to predict the way that the colors and tones you perceive with your naked eyes will be rendered in-camera. You will also learn how to effectively frame your subject(s) and scenes to draw the viewer’s gaze into and through the frame in a predictable manner, and keep him or her visually engaged. With the basic theories of infrared capture and image design deftly handled, the authors discuss further artistic applications. You’ll learn how to add selective color to your black & white infrared images and how to create color infrared images that take infrared capture to a whole new level. Finally, the educators detail basic image-editing strategies that will allow you to finesse the tones and contrast in your images. Armed with the scientific insights and artistic applications in this book, you will be able to easily branch into a new genre of creative capture—whether you’re interested in pushing your creative abilities to new levels for self-satisfaction or are looking to offer your studio’s clientele a new product line.
