Having already taught you how to compose and interpret great photos, Michael Freeman now continues his best-selling series by exploring the most successful methods for presenting photography meaningfully and in an engaging format. This is the critical “next step” that separates adequate image galleries from captivating collections – and disinterested viewers from enthralled audiences. Tapping into his decades of experience shooting for such publications as Smithsonian, GEO, and Condé Nast Traveller (among many others), Michael Freeman studies the photo-essay phenomenon that took the world by storm and gave storytellers a completely new set of tools to construct their narratives. Having established how rhythm, pacing, and careful organisation build tension and cultivate interest, Freeman goes on to explain what this means for presenting your own photos, particularly in the new digital formats of online galleries, slideshows, and tablets. The Photographer’s Story will enliven your images, refresh your perspective, and elevate your understanding of how photographs work together to tell a story. Your audiences will thank you for it.

It's amazing how many images the world's photographers produce! Professional or not, images surround us in our everyday lives. What makes successful photographers stand out? What drives us to revisit the same images over and over? All images tell a story. Whether they're produced as works of art, on assignment for National Geographic, or as part of a family vacation, images say more than just a shutter speed, ISO, or aperture setting. We make images for a reason. Storytellers, by photographer/teacher Jerod Foster, focuses on visual storytelling and how a deep knowledge of your process and your personal vision can create stronger images. Storytelling often requires the use of certain lenses, apertures, or light modifiers, but the story is what holds everything together. To become a better storyteller you will explore: Composition, light, depth of field, and motion and how to properly use your camera technically to dig deeper. Visual themes and how they provide stories with interest and depth Types of shots and shooting styles and what they convey in your images Research and ways to conceptualize your story before shooting Strategies for developing your own effective storytelling workflow during and after the shoot. This beautifully written and illustrated guide will help you connect the how-tos of digital photography with the who, what, when, where and why of storytelling to bring your vision and your images to life!

Ask anyone old enough where they were when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and theyll be able to tell you. Photojournalist Robert Hill Jackson was riding in the presidents motorcade that fateful day. He heard the shots ring out from the Dallas School Book Depository, and when he looked up at the sixth floor, he saw a rifle being withdrawn from a window. Jackson captured the events of that day so everyone could see them. From the cheering fans at Dallas Love Field Airport to the grief on peoples faces at Parkland Hospital, he was there with his camera as a witness to history. But he had yet to capture his most famous photo, which came Nov. 24, 1963, when he took a photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald. The iconic photograph earned him the Pulitzer Prize in photojournalism, and he would refer to it as the shot, which was a reference to the photography shot as well as Rubys gunshot. Jackson would go on to cover the Ruby trial and its bigger-than-life characters, and his photographs were incredible and provoking. Get a behind-the-scenes look at his life and storied career with this well-researched biography.

I am not writing this book to gain any financial or monetary gain, I just want to get this story out to all photographers as to what happens when you are falsely accused of a terrible crime. I caution every photographer to take extra precautions when photographing people. Especially in this time period with the economy the way it is. People try all sorts of ways to get money. It’s a time of survival for everyone. During the time this was taking place I found out that other photographers like me have been,or are going through the same situation. Reading this book may help you to prevent this happening to you. This was an act of extortion that went very wrong. Be extra careful! I would consider this a must-read book for all photographers and artist.

Genießen Sie Seite für Seite voller inspirierender Bilder und Illustrationen – alle untermalt mit praktischen und technischen Informationen sowie professionellen Ratschlägen. Professionelle Fotografen jagen ständig nach Licht, warten, helfen nach und nehmen Bilder auf – zuweilen bis zur Besessenheit. Michael Freeman arbeitet schon seit vier Jahrzehnten mit Licht und zeigt hier einen einfachen, aber praktischen Ansatz, das wichtigste Gut der Fotografie zu interpretieren, darauf zu reagieren und es aufzunehmen. Diese praktischen Ratschläge teilen sich in drei Abschnitte: Warten, Jagen und Nachhelfen. Üben Sie sich zunächst in der Kunst der Geduld und erkennen Sie den unermesslichen Wert, Licht vorhersehen und damit planen zu können, obwohl es den Horizont noch nicht erreicht hat. Lernen Sie, wie Sie flüchtigen, vergänglichen Lichtsituationen begegnen und sie beherrschen, schnell denken und schnell reagieren. Nutzen Sie schließlich die Werkzeuge, die Ihnen zur Verfügung stehen, um das vorhandene Licht zu verstärken und zu manipulieren – von den Optionen vor Ort bis hin zu den technischen Mitteln der Nachbearbeitung. Mit dieser Methode arbeiten Sie wie ein Profi – Sie finden sich in allen Lichtsituationen zurecht, setzen sie um und kennen sich aus –, um die eine Aufnahme in den Kasten zu bekommen. Aus dem Inhalt: • Weiches Sonnenlicht • Seitenlicht • Reflektiertes Licht • Gegenlicht • Goldene Stunde • Lichter der Stadt • Spot • Blendenflecke • Schlagschatten-Licht • Flutlicht • Aufhelllicht • Umhüllendes Licht • Licht mit unvollständigem Spektrum • Zeitraffer-Licht • u.v.m.
