Description:

Renowned photographer and teacher Larry Fink leads readers on a creative journey exploring the relationship between composing a photograph and improvising within the scene at hand to create images with both feeling and meaning--merging style, content and personal vision. Based on his teaching, Fink combines advice, real-world insight and stories that reveal his own creative process and years of experience as an artist and working photographer. He covers a variety of photographic issues essential to photographers of all levels and backgrounds, including how to sharpen your photographic perception; how to maximize the frame to create layered and sophisticated compositions; how to use the technical aspects of photography (depth of field, focus, shutter speed and flash) as an emotional tool; how to create pictures with energy that take advantage of the tension of the scene; how to both anticipate a composition coming together and be responsive to chance as the world unfolds in front of the camera. Throughout, Fink explores the relationship between subject and photographer, style and meaning. This book provides rare access to the teaching and artistic practice of a leading photographer and is an indispensable tool for students, teachers and anyone who wants to take more successful pictures.
