Making Great Photographs

I found this book to be creatively inspirational. It is an approach to
photography that is like writing classical literature as opposed to the
writing copy on the back of a cereal box. Most people see something and
shoot without a lot of thought as to style and context. After reading this
book I feel inspired to do more than that. I hope to implement the
techniques, suggestions and ideas from this book into my photography.

The book ends with a wonderful chapter describing the stories, thought
processes and circumstances that go along with each photograph.

It is obvious that the author of this book is an amazing photographer with
decades of experience. It was also a joy just to see the breadth of work in
it’s entirety.

Photography for the everyman

For those into photography get Peter Duke's newest book. Peter is a great photographer and this is his no nonsense everyday man approach to taking great photos. Learn and take more pictures that mean something.

Lets the images speak

The author does a great job by letting the photographs speak for themselves. This book delves into the theory behind successful imagery and the process required to tell a story with one photo. The unique large format presentation of photos with accompanying text looks at home on an iPad screen or large tv. Recommended for any aspiring photographers looking to get to the next level.
