There are few opportunities to observe an experienced, well-traveled professional photographer at work. Usually, we only see the pictures but not the background of their creation. What makes this book so special is that Gert Wagner’s stories give us a close-up view of the process. He has worked in photojounalism and advertising for leading magazines and companies. Many of his award-winning pictures have been published worldwide. Their creation is described here along with dozens of stunning examples, complete with background information.
Every ambitious photographer strives for interesting images that tell a story, preserve a memorable moment, express joy, document an event, or advertise a product. Photography can indeed be a highly creative pursuit, and fun to boot.
While a camera is what takes the pictures, it is not the critical ingredient for producing excellent photos. Light and picture design, however, are absolutely crucial. Additionally, it is useful for the photographer to be aware of the importance of preparation, detail, and experimentation. These constitute the elements of powerful photography.
This book offers you surprisingly simple solutions that take you right to the heart of successful picture shooting. It is vivid, exciting, highly inspiring and motivating!
