Secrets to Making Great Pictures
Peter K. Burian & Robert Caputo
National Geographic Society; June 2003 (second edition)
by two National Geographic writer/photographers, this book
is fairly comprehensive introduction to taking photographs.
But perhaps the most interesting and informative sections
of the book are the profiles of Sam Abell, William Albert
Allard, Annie Griffiths Belt, David Alan Harvey, James L.
Stanfield, Michael Yamashita, and other notable photographers.
The book concludes with helpful information on travel, photography
publications, websites, and other resources. As one would
expect, it is amply illustrated with exquisite, high-impact
color images made on location. This substantial book aimed
at photographers looking for practical advice from the pros
is highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
Barbara London & John Upton
Prentice Hall; July 2001(seventh edition)
picture tells a thousand stories, but
the one it doesn't tell is how the shot was made. Barbara
London and John Upton's Photography is an all-inclusive
look at the craft of photography. This book will help any
amateur move up a few notches, and it serves as a refresher
course for professionals as well. The sixth edition of this
classic best seller (the first was published in 1976) includes
a companion Website with interactive activities, Web resources,
and a learning archive. Amply illustrated with at least
one photograph or diagram on almost every page, Photography
is the one reference work every student of photography must
have--even those who will never set foot in a classroom.
