I would unequivocally recommend this book to everyone who wants to reach further with their photography or other creative endeavor they cherish.

A great photograph has the potential to transcend verbal and written language.

But how do you create these photographs? It’s not the how that’s important, but the who and the what. Who you are as a person has a direct impact on what you capture as a photographer. Whether you are an amateur or professional, architect or acupuncturist, physician or photographer, this guide provides inspiration, simple techniques, and assignments to boost your creative process and improve your digital images using natural light without additional gear.

Chris Orwig’s insights-to reduce and simplify, participate rather than critique, and capture a story-have made him an immensely popular workshop speaker and faculty member at the prestigious Brooks Institute.

His engaging stories presented as lessons follow his classroom approach and highlight what students say is his contagious passion for life.

This book is primarily but not exclusively of composing shots of people. It gives fairly useful advice that is a bit philosophically bent, rather than hands-on. I found the pictures very helpful and inspirational. It is kind of written like a textbook rather than a codification of knowledge gained during a career in photography.

You will get some exercises to do. Personally I don’t like the textbook dryness, but that might be a matter of taste. Anyway photographers will never be good writers. Textbooks also always have some wasteful chapters.

I’m still giving it four stars.

I like books about composition and I have found that the best approach is to buy books from different authors. Many authors have multiple books, but they all tend to be kind of similar. So my key advice is to go for diversity. Before you buy the current book, Potery would get the following: I’ve bought my first DSLR and also bought 15 photography books on amazon.

The author has set this up in a workshop mode, so you have the option of taking his assignments and posting your work to the website. Whatever you do, you will walk away with a new outlook on how to take photographs.

I highly recommend this book for all photographers. I have been shooting film and digital for 3 decades and read many technical books on Photography. I know how to take a photograph, and I know what a good photograph is. However, I found my self with a gap between knowing and actually doing.

I noticed this gap filling when I spend a week with an accomplished photographer couple years ago. It was not the rules and techniques that I witnessed, it was the wisdom and simplicity of his approach. This book is filled of wisdom and simplicity.

If you LOVE photography, read it. If photography is a chore and you need a no frills manual use this aperture, this lens, that speed, frame with ooetry of thirds, etc look else where.
