Exposed: Inside the Life and Images of a Pro Photographer (Voices That Matter)by Michael. Clark
Synopses & Reviews
With an engaging writing style and cliff-hanging details, Clark reveals the realities of working in this challenging field to create memorable images-from hauling 200 pounds of camera gear in a pack, to changing weather conditions, and spending days in a tent with your subjects. He offers start to finish details of some of his most demanding assignments, including rock climbing, big wave surfing, sky diving, and mountain biking, sharing his personal techniques, lighting setups, on the fly problem solving skills, and post-processing expertise in Lightroom and Photoshop.
The book features special chapters on his assignments for the Patagonia Expedition Race, flying in a search and rescue helicopter, rock climbing in the Black Hills, and skydiving with the Red Bull Air Force Team. The hope is that by tagging along with Clark, readers will be able to gain insight into their own photography, improve their skills, and find inspiration to create images instead of just taking them.
Exposed: Inside the Life and Images of a Pro Photographer is for intermediate to advanced DSLR shooters. A DVD is included with a 90-minute video screencast of the author's instruction and tips on his post processing workflow for many of the images featured in the book.
With challenging working conditions, Clark's valuable insights and tips are relevant to professional and aspiring photographers interested in turning their passion into a profession.
