Continuing my education, I’ve recently read three books on photography (I am reading more, but will let you know soon). All three are very different… From one, I didn’t learn much, from another I was inspired, and from the other I took some useful tips. Here’s a description:
– Focus On Photographing People, by Haje Jan Kamps
I’m very into photographing people. So I got this book during my holidays down south. Read it in a day. It teaches you the different aspects of portrait photography in a clear tone. I personally didn’t learn that much, but if you’re getting started in photography, this is a useful read.
– Annie Leibovitz at Work, by Annie Leibovitz
This is a wonderful book, written by one of today’s most famous photographers. She shares many stories and lessons from her now long career, all accompanied by her great pictures. I also got to know other photographers, whose work she refers to in the text.
– Your Creative Mix, by Corwin Hiebert
On this ebook, the author tries to get our creative juices flowing. He tells of of traps to avoid, shares some collaborations tips, and talks to some artists who share their experiences. This book is aimed at photographers, but can be read by anyone in a creative profession.
