The ends of the day, life indoors, and the entire range of night-time activities
This book introduces you to the cameras, equipment, and software you’ll need to bring these dramatic images to life, before walking you through their use. Inside you’ll find advice on everything from judging ISO settings to rigging up additional lighting, and more besides. What’s more, you’ll not only see page after page of spectacular photos – sunrises and sunsets, sparkling cityscapes, and moonlit landscapes – you will also learn how those pictures were taken, and how you can produce pictures that are just as spectacular.
Michael Freeman is perhaps the most widely published authority on photography in the world, not to mention a successful photographer in his own right. This recognition represents the wisdom that only four decades of editorial and commercial work can bring. A graduate of Brasenose College, Oxford University, Freeman first worked in London’s advertising industry during the period of exciting change that took place in the 60s. In 1970, he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon river with two second-hand cameras, and when many of the resulting pictures were published Time-Life, he chose to embark on a full-time photographic career.
Since then, Freeman has consolidated his reputation as one of the world’s leading reportage photographers, working for clients that include all the globe’s major magazines, most notably Smithsonian magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories). Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work, he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.
Freeman’s books on photography, including L'occhio del fotografo, have been translated into 27 languages.
