"This charming book provides a fresh approach and offers assignments for those new to the craft. The book will also appeal to seasoned photographers looking for new ways to capture the moments around them in a more meaningful and personal way."-- -- Renowned photographer George Lange's work is guided by one simple truth: An unforgettable photograph is not about what the subject looks like No fancy equipment required. Just hundreds of simple, inspiring ideas and lessons--each one illustrated with a photograph--organized around the six essential principles of seeing like a photographer. (Here's one: Shoot the Moment, Not the Subject.) Here's why to shoot in natural light--always. The fun of putting babies in surprising places. How to get intimate with food. Using a dramatic sky as your backdrop. The benefit of learning to know the light in every room of your house. Shooting hands or feet instead of faces. How to move past the "I was here "postcard effect. How to catch the in-between moments. Because in the end, it's about living the moment, shooting the moment--and being in the moment forever.

A wonderful book about taking photographs. This is a how to book about seeing rather than worrying too much about technical details, although they are covered too. This book will not tell you which camera or lens to buy.

OK for some, but not for me. Some of the pictures shown would be the ones I would not want others to see or know it was me that took them.

These are the kind of pictures that I enjoy looking at and the kind that I wish I could take more of--a bit quirky but fun & appealing.
