Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many experienced photographers and artists are intuitive in their image-making process, subconsciously using their visual awareness to create, technically produce and edit their work. This ability often develops over many years and can appear misleadingly simple.

Context and Narrative explores the structure and method behind the process of constructing a meaningful image, helping students to apply theories to their own photographic work, and identify the significant ingredients which together constitute a successful photograph. Maria Short provides an inspiring look at the way in which context and narrative help shape and form photographs, from the initial idea through to the resulting polished photograph.

Synopsis:

The Fundamentals of Creative Photography offers a comprehensive introduction to the world of applied creative photography. It explores the basic principles that underpin photography, and guides the reader though the practical considerations involved in executing the perfect shot. The book is concerned with photography in a professional context – images that are to be used in the fulfilment of a brief, rather than those created solely for self-expression. Creativity is important, but must be focused on meeting the clients needs. As such, the Fundamentals of Creative Photography deals in practical advice for photographers as working image-makers, from the importance of communication to useful industry information and advice. It includes guidance on acquiring and developing new skills, the practice of self-promotion and self-administration, and a discussion of the image workflow.
