Michael Freeman on Creative Photography really doesn’t need more publicity. However this book published way back in 2016 definitely warrants more exposure. Freeman ranges widely across photography considering different approaches to being creative with your camera.
George Barr’s approach is to take 52 images from photographers both well- and less well-known. We come away with an armoury of potential approaches to reviewing our own or other peoples’ photography.
“Seeing Things” by Joel Meyerowitz was conceived as a “Kid’s Guide to Looking at Photographs”, but it works for older kids too. And why is this just a kids’ book? If you can get past the sub title on the cover page, this is a well written introduction to photographs that might just trigger a few of your own brain cells into action.
In a blink this book by Henry Carroll, apparently for beginners, with pages of detail on how to choose shutter speeds and apertures resolved in a flash how I should be taking photographs for maximum impact.
