Discover The Secrets to Mastering Landscape Photography At Night! Night photography and astrophotography can be two of the most frustrating sub-genres of landscape. A lot of the reason for this is because: 1. It really is a hard subject to master due to the lack of light. 2. People don’t understand how to go about mastering it. It’s very technical, math based, and has a lot of steps. While this can put a lot of people off, I’m here to break it down for you. Planning is absolutely key, and I’ll walk you through every step you need to make your shoot successful. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn Inside... Tips and Tricks for Photographing in Low Light: Before diving right into night photography, I think it’s best to get your feet wet with a little introduction into the world of low light photography. If you can master this, night photography is the next logical step. The tips include information on the importance of selecting ISO and using a tripod to reduce shake. These things carry over into night photography. Astrophotography and Night Photography: I explain the difference; inclusion of landscape along with the sky or without. How Dark Does it Need to Be?: This chapter discusses how to figure out the light pollution in your area, and a few tips on how to combat it and use it to your advantage if need be. The Gear: This comprehensive list breaks down the essential gear you need to make it work. Planning Your Shoot and Composition: Talks about all the steps you need to take to make your shoot successful. Have a list of all the equipment you need and make sure to pack it all (and extra) at least the night before. Get to know your equipment and make sure it’s all set where it should be in the daylight, before you get to your location. This chapter also discusses the way in which composition differs when you work at night. Getting Star Trails: How to make beautiful star trails in your image Getting Point Stars: Provides opposite techniques to the previous tip, including how to determine exposure time for this style. Editing: Night photography has its own kind of retouching that you have to do to get the perfect image, and I break down all the steps and how to make them work for you.

Alain Briot states that, "The personality of the photographer must be present in the image for an artistic photograph to have value." And in this book he sets out to teach the things that are essential in achieving this goal. Following his successful first book, Mastering Landscape Photography, Briot goes beyond the conventional rules of composition and takes on a fresh, new approach to teaching the art of photography. Based upon his personal experiences as an artist, teacher, and photographer, he opens new doors to the reader-doors leading to new ways of seeing and composing images. Briot approaches fine art photography as being a combination of art and technique. In this new book he addresses both of these by presenting artistic and technical information. On the artistic side, Briot introduces artistic concepts that have been rarely, if ever, associated with photography. On the technical side, he presents numerous tools that can help you learn how to create better photographs and provides technical solutions to common photographic problems. The author practices photography as a fine art. What matters most to him is how photography can be used to express feelings and emotions. For Briot, a good photograph must be both artistically inspired and technically excellent. To have just one of these two elements is not enough for a fine art photograph to be successful. Topics include: - How to compose with color, with black and white, and with light - Why you need to consider your audience while composing a photograph - Recreate the emotions you felt when you captured your photographs - How the elements of color-hue, contrast, and saturation-work in your images - How to control the elements that have a visual effect in your photographs - How to draw upon your personal way of seeing and then share your vision - How to diagnose image maladies and apply the proper remedies - How to define a color palette for a specific photograph - How to use compositional elements to develop a personal style Forweword by Tony Sweet

Der Einstieg in die Arbeit mit Licht ist keine ganz billige Angelegenheit, professionelle Lichttechnik übersteigt sehr schnell das zur Verfügung stehende Budget. Softbox, Lichtzelt, Aufnahmetisch, Striplight oder Diffusor, all das trotzdem einfach einmal auszuprobieren, damit zu experimentieren und dabei zu lernen, ist der Wunsch vieler Amateure. Was liegt also näher, als sich das passende Zubehör selber zu bauen - doch wie, ohne Anleitung? Welches Werkzeug und Material wird benötigt? Wie richte ich kostengünstig ein kleines Table-Top-Studio ein? Genau diese Fragen möchte das Buch beantworten. Ein wenig handwerkliches Geschick vorausgesetzt, entsteht aus Materialien, die für jedermann erschwinglich sind, Fotozubehör, dass sich in seiner Funktionalität nicht hinter professionellem Equipment verstecken muss. Neben der jeweiligen Bauanleitung zeigen auch viele Beispielbilder die Ergebnisse, die sich mit dem selbst gebauten Zubehör erzielen lassen. Und selbst wenn Sie später einmal auf eine große Blitzanlage umgestiegen sind, werden Sie viele der hier vorgestellten Hilfsmittel immer noch zu schätzen wissen. Dieses Buch richtet sich an alle, die mit ihrer Digitalkamera noch etwas mehr aus ihren Bildern herausholen wollen. Sei es, um eine Sammlung zu dokumentieren, Produktkataloge »inhouse« zu realisieren, als Grafiker perfekte Layoutbilder zu machen, kreativ mit Licht zu arbeiten oder einfach den Einstieg zu finden. Es ist jedoch kein Fotolehrbuch im klassischen Sinn, sondern Anleitung, Ideenfundgrube und Anregung für alle, die sich mit dem Selbstbau von Fotozubehör beschäftigen.

Der Fotograf Brandon Stanton begann im Sommer 2010 das ehrgeizige Projekt, ein fotografisches Porträt von New York City zu erschaffen. Aus den daraus entstandenen Fotos und Interviews wurde der Blog Humans of New York mit aktuell über 14 Millionen Fans auf Facebook. Das 2013 veröffentlichte Buch Humans of New York, das auf dem Blog basierte, schoss sofort an die Spitze der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und blieb dort für über 45 Wochen. Nun ist Brandon Stanton zurück, mit dem Buch, auf das alle gewartet haben: Humans of New York: Die besten Storys. Seit Stanton angefangen hatte, Menschen in den Straßen von New York zu interviewen, war der Dialog mit ihnen genauso detailliert, faszinierend und bewegend gewesen wie die Fotos selbst. Humans of New York: Die besten Storys zeigt völlig neue Personen in großartigen Fotos mit längeren, tiefergehenden Geschichten, die mit noch mehr Offenheit überraschen und uns aufs Neue erstaunen.
