Revue Of Book: “Steve has done it again! Just as in the wonderful ‘Darkroom Cookbook,’ he has managed to pull together everything you need to know about printing with multigrade papers. A significant contribution with every black-and-white darkroom enthusiast should own.”–Joe Englander “Anchell’s text contains a wealth of useful and clearly stated information. It should be a valuable addition to any serious printer’s library.”

The Darkroom

The Darkroom Cookbook discuss, in easy to understand concise language, how to make your own developers, toners, fixers, reducers etc. Stephen Anchell gives you the formulas to reproduce, in your own darkroom, a host of great developers etc. He also gives some basic info on hints and tools you will need to get started. A well written book easy to follow.

This is a wonderful book. If you are interested in making the most of your black and white photography, you need to know what your film if composed of, what it reacts to, and how to achieve the effects that you want to get out of it. You don’t have to be a darkroom guru to use it, you don’t need a lot of equipment, and you don’t need an elaborate setup. I think anyone will improve his or her results after reading and using this book.

His new work often has an almost theatrical effect on the viewer-seeming to emanate directly from the lives of the artist’s models. The settings, the subjects, the sumptuous lighting will all be familiar to longtime admirers of Sturges’ ongoing body of work. The new photographs include diptychs of clothed/nude models, pictures of true mutual trust, as well as never-before seen color photographs!

I am an beginner when it comes to photography. I wanted a book that had details from equipment, lighting techniques, to picking a model. Shows the picture with a description of how the equipment was arranged, and what was used. A great book at a great price.

I believe this to be the absolute best book on glamour lighting for someone who is serious about doing glamour photography. I am a serious working photographer who does quite a bit of glamour photography, and I find the lighting techniques presented in this book to be excellent.

Photography is in the midst of a revolution

Photography is in the midst of a revolution. Rohn Engh shows part-time and professional photographers how to compete with the big agencies by using the Internet–the new frontier of stock photography sales–and by determining how their images, both traditional and digital, are delivered and paid for. A comprehensive guide, sellphotos.com covers everything for photographers from Internet basics and the nature of the stock photography trade to building their own web sites and operating their own business.

For photographers and digital graphic artists

For photographers and digital graphic artists, this book covers a variety of styles and techniques primarily using Adobe Photoshop. Topics covered include: getting started in digital imaging, taking photographs to manipulate, inputting photos, using imaging software, using digital filter effects, compositing photos, and marketing your images.

Well written with many illustrations of the subjects in each chapter. The chapters are written for the the novice as well as for the journeyman who want to refresh one’s memory on the basics. The latter chapters get more involved with technical information. Book 2 and 3, “The Negative” and ” The Print” are eqully well written with an introduction to Ansel’s own Zone system. A must read for serious photographers or the novice interested in advanced techniques and/ or terminology.

Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams has taken a fairly technical system and made it a breeze to grasp. No misleading sidebars or relationships here. Just the facts. Much better then my first indoctrination. No matter how deeply you wish to delve into his techniques, even a redimentary understanding of previsualization before exposure will improve ones photo making, even in color. An outstanding reference. The entire series, Book 1: The Camera, Book 2: The Negative, and Book 3: The Print are invaluable additions to a personal photography library.

Ansel’s fantastic images and stories combine with his technical discussions to provide the perfect insight into how to become the necessary craftsman. His uncompromising approach into printmaking and photography are clear and simple examples that any novice should at least start with. There are other books out there – but no better start than this. Enjoyable and instructive at the same time!

I have always wanted to take nude photographs, but I never knew how to get models, what to pay them, or any of the other details needed to get started. This book is not for seasoned fine art photographers, but rather for those of us interested in the genre but lacking the know how to do it.

This is ‘THE’ Hamilton book to own! I have never seen anything so beautiful and classical as this before. Hamilton is a true master artist and this book shows the depths to which he explores his art. You are entering a classical landscape of beauty and enchantment. Hamilton is a great photographer and his landscapes and nudes show us the erotic and mystical in our world. Buy this book. It is worth every penny.

A very well done book that gives great insight into the process a photographer

A very well done book that gives great insight into the process a photographer uses in photographing and working with models…supplies the reader with lots of ideas in a very readable and enjoyable form. All the images have information on how they were taken and the equipment used.

The best intro to the understanding of film exposure. Very clearly explained and pictures with author’s comments just help so much to understand the author’s way of working with exposure. I am still finding out some new stuff there when reading it now even after I have read it from cover to cover for a couple of times. Very helpful. Written in languag a beginner will undstand, but transforms your photography into something great!

This is a wonderful book.
