Photography Masterclass Summary

Photography Masterclass: Creative Techniques of 100 Great Photographers by Paul Lowe

What makes some photographs stay in the memory forever? Sometimes it's the subject matter alone, but more often it's the skill of the artists who took them. The premise of this magnificent book is quite simple: take 100 leading examples of the work of the world's greatest photographers, and a distinguished academic will describe how they achieved their effects to allow you to recreate them yourself. Discover how to compose 'decisive moments' like Cartier-Bresson, use long exposures for landscapes like Simon Norfolk, and experiment with flash in daylight like Rineke Dijkstra.The images are arranged thematically, with engaging analysis of each image and a description of its technical make-up, along with a biography of each artist. The book showcases 100 of the greatest images in the history of the art and will provide an indispensable guide to the technicalities behind the well-known masterpieces and hidden gems in the world of photography. The photographers and their images were carefully selected by award winning photographer, educator and academic Paul Lowe, whose years of experience as a photojournalist and as a teacher gives unique and detailed insight into the working methods of these great image makers.
