Finding the Picture
By

Rating
Finding the Picture, the latest in Argentum's Masterclass series, tackles more of the fundamental questions of creative photography that were left uncovered by its predecessors, Developing Vision and Style and Working the Light. In Finding the Picture, Phil Maplas and Clive Minnitt deal with two of the most fundamental questions in Location Photography - 'What should I photograph?' and 'How should I tackle it?' These may seem obvious questions but many photographers, no matter how experienced, can suffer the photographic equivalent of writer's block: they either lack the inspiration for a subject or are unable to see how to capture their chosen subject successfully. As a remedy to this, the authors offer clear and practical advice on the steps photographers can take to release their creativity and find and take a successful image. They tackle a wide range of themes including photographic styles, sources of inspiration, seeing versus looking, simplifying photographs and experimentation. Finding the Picture is rich with tips and suggestions based on the authors' many years of experience -both as location photographers and as course leaders. Helping to demonstrate the points made, a selection of Clive and Phil's images are printed as well -accompanied by detailed captions and critiques of each other's work. As with other titles in the series, this book gives readers the sense of taking part in a location workshop with the authors, but in a form that can be used as a constant source of reference and ideas for freeing up the imagination and 'finding the picture'.
