Great New Photography Book – Photography Wisdom: A Practical Guide To Successful Photography and Self Expression

A good friend of mine, Wayne Cosshall, has published a new book. The title is Photography Wisdom: A Practical Guide To Successful Photography and Self Expression. He’s a brilliant photographer and writer, and I can’t recommend him enough. Here’s a quick summary, but for the details go to his book page on DigitalImageMaker.

“Photography Wisdom came about from my desire to take a series of tips for better photography I have been publishing on www.dimagemaker.com, expand on them and publish them in book form. Some people like and use online resources but others do not, and it seemed a shame to miss out on reaching such people. You can now choose between the printed book and App forms.

The tips come from my 35+ years of photography experience, from my passions of landscape, macro, collage and infrared photography to portraits, weddings, product shots and the odd bit of fashion. They also draw from my varied other interests and activities: helping people overcome creative blocks, teaching photography, art and computers at all levels of adult education, a passion for science, philosophy, spirituality and history, and much more. I find it constantly amazing that interests in one area will often yield insights in a completely different field.

Topics covered include:

Composition and Exposure
Test Your Own Gear
The Numbers Have Meaning
Use What You Have
Intuition and Intellect
Restrict Yourself
Comfort Zone
Reconsideration Is Good
Plan, Then Shoot
Understand/Break the Rules
Print More and Differently
Experiment Widely
Shoot More and Differently
Work a Scene to the Max
Every Image Has a Story
Work With Many Levels
Bodies of Work
Developing a Style
Expressing Yourself
Strong Emotion Is Powerful
