The Essence of Photography
Author: Michael Freeman
Publisher: CRC Press
This is not a book about the fundamentals of shutter speed or how your camera works; it is a book that will teach photographers of all levels how to work with their cameras to capture moments whether they are occurring quickly or unfolding over many hours. Capturing the Moment is about a gesture, an expression, a ball in the net, a whale breaching, like Marilyn Monroe’s skirt flying up or Alfred Eisenstaedt’s image of a kiss between a soldier and nurse in Times Square. Moments in all forms are the true core of photography, and this book will explain how to anticipate them, recognise them, choose them, and capture them, through the eyes and wisdom of award-winning photographer and celebrated author Michael Freeman.

The Sports Photography of Barton Silverman
Author: David Curtis,Robin Capon
Publisher: Pavilion Books
One of the attractions of painting outdoors is the challenge of capturing the spirit of a place - changing light, weather and transient conditions demand particular painting skills if they are to be interpreted effectively. Leading painter David Curtis works on location, in all weathers, observing and capturing the subtle effects of light and mood. Oil paint is as good for painting on site as it is for large-scale painting in the studio; it is remarkably responsive; can be applied in many different ways; and it allows time to assess and modify work in progress. In this fascinating book, David Curtis shows how he achieves such expressive and original results using drawings, paintings and stage-by-stage examples. He gives detailed explanations of his two main working methods - for plein-air paintings and for studio compositions - as well as plenty of helpful guidance and advice on choosing materials, exploring techniques, selecting ideas, composition, colour and tone and associated topics. Drawing skills and interpreting the qualities of light are other key issues that he deals with, while his wonderfully evocative landscapes, coastal scenes, interiors and figure compositions provide much inspiration.

Cultural Politics and the Poetics of Presence
Author: Erik Mortenson
Publisher: SIU Press
Category: Literary Criticism
CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Examining “the moment” as one of the primary motifs of Beat writing, Erik Mortenson offers the first book to investigate immediacy and its presence and importance in Beat writing. Capturing the Beat Moment: Cultural Politics and the Poetics of Presence places an expanded canon of Beat writers in an early postmodern context that highlights their importance in American poetics and provides an account of Beat practices that reveal how gender and race affect Beat politics of the moment. Mortenson argues that Beat writers focused on action, desire, and spontaneity to establish an authentic connection to the world around them and believed that “living in the moment” was the only way in which they might establish the kind of life that led to good writing. With this in mind, he explores the possibility that, far from being the antithesis of their times, the Beats actually were a product of them. Mortenson outlines the effects of gender and race on Beat writing in the postwar years, as well as the Beats’ attempts to break free of the constrictive notions of time and space prevalent during the 1950s. Mortenson discusses such topics as the importance of personal visionary experiences; the embodiment of sexuality and the moment of ecstasy in Beat writing; how the Beats used photographs to evoke the past; and the ways that Beat culture was designed to offer alternatives to existing political and social structures. Throughout the volume, Mortenson moves beyond the Kerouac-Ginsberg-Burroughs triumvirate commonly associated with Beat literature, discussing women—such as Diane di Prima, Janine Pommy Vega, and Joyce Johnson—and African American writers, including Bob Kaufman and Amiri Baraka. With the inclusion of these authors comes a richer understanding of the Beat writers’ value and influence in American literary history. !--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /--

Capturing The Moments Of A Contemplative Life though lacking meter, rhyme, and any preestablished harmony of formal methods we do find in the eroticism of moments extremely passionate expression between lovers, man and nature, and passing friends. Throughout, whether he writes of love, sex, or everyday life we find a sense of longing. The author's ability to capture purely lyrical impulses and voices then allowing them to grow in their own original directions as lyrical expression proves mystical at times. His subconscious appears to receive thoughts of past and present from outside the boundaries of time and space and flow through his consciousness. Therefore they are not necessarily the emotions of the author, or any single person but may be seen as the collective consciousness of humanity as a whole. Because of the author's aptitude to channel the passionate experiences of others whose level of energy exceeds most, many insist he is a being without a self-identity. The astonishing ease with which he transforms the phenomena of sexual experiences, oneness with nature, and the heartbreak of aging into symbolic images of psychological states proves to be the heart and soul of his writings. If you deeply contemplate his musings that appear to come from his aesthetic consciousness you will transport to a feeling of spatial motion without a conception of time.
Forty Years As a Cleveland Photojournalist
Author: Theodore V. Ocepek,Evelyn Schaeffer
Category: Television broadcasting of news
Cleveland, Ohio, 1969: Channel 5 WEWS News Team anchored by John Hambrick, Dave Patterson, Gib Shanley, Bob Zames and Dorothy Fuldheim climbed into the Number One news slot in Cleveland's four station market, and Channel 5 stayed there for ten undisputed years. Ted Ocepek brings us behind the scenes, sharing the building of the news from a cameraman's perspective in the days when cameramen were expected to shoot, process and edit the film for a story. Ted covered most of the major events during one of the most tumultuous periods of the 20th century. Through his lens he viewed civil rights riots in Cleveland, accused murderer Dr. Samuel Sheppard, the standoff at Wounded Knee, multiple presidential campaigns, and the burning Cuyahoga River. As Dorothy Fuldheim's favorite cameraman, he recorded the Troubles in Ireland as well as Anwar Sadat's funeral in Cairo, Egypt. He shares his insights on Cleveland and on the news business, including the evolution in technology from still cameras to instant satellite transmission, and the growth of today's ultra-marketed, ultra-competitive news cycle. Ted Ocepek began his career in news as a copy boy for the Cleveland Plain Dealer in 1944. He worked as a wire photo operator for Associated Press, an Ohio National Guard photographer, and a public relations photographer for the City of Cleveland before joining WEWS Channel 5, Cleveland's ABC affiliate, part time in 1962. By 1965 he was working full time as a television cameraman, covering both local and national news. Ted retired from Channel 5 in 1990.

The Art of Capturing the Candid Moment
Author: Gordon Lewis
Publisher: Rocky Nook, Inc.
Since the advent of the camera, there have been photographers whose mission is to record and interpret the public sphere in all its aspects. Eugene Atget documented evidence of everyday life in the streets as well as the buildings and monuments of Paris. Henri Cartier-Bresson pursued what he called "The Decisive Moment," the moment in which the meaning of an event was most clearly captured in a photograph. Their work, and that of many other masters, has inspired generations of photographers to wander public spaces, camera in hand, searching for meaningful moments in time. Success requires the street photographer to be proficient with their equipment, to be constantly aware of their surroundings, and to have a keen eye. Quick reflexes and self-confidence are essential: Street photographers know from experience that hesitation or procrastination could mean missing a once-in-a-lifetime shot. The adage "it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission" was probably coined by a street photographer. In Street Photography: The Art of Capturing the Candid Moment, Gordon Lewis helps readers understand and conquer the challenging yet rewarding world of street photography. The book includes discussions of why photographers are drawn to street photography, the different styles of street photography, and what makes a great street photograph. Lewis then goes on to explore how the choice of location can change a photographer's approach to image capture: from city streets to fairs to beaches, Lewis discusses the impact different environments have on the process of street photography. Another crucial element to becoming a good street photographer is learning to travel light, with minimal equipment. Lewis gives readers practical advice on everything from cameras and lenses to camera bags and clothing. Lewis also delves into the techniques and approaches that will help novices master the art of street photography. Whether your style is to engage your subjects or to remain unnoticed and take candid portraits, Lewis offers ideas on how to capture fascinating moments in time: a gesture, expression, or composition that may exist for only a fraction of a second, but can leave a lasting impression of the wonders, challenges, and absurdities of modern life.
