The Wild Side of Photography, Cyril Harnischmacher, Rocky Nook, O’Reilly

More than a dozen contributors have been brought together to discourse on many aspects of creating images from light and using photographic equipment in ingenious ways. Subjects include kite photography, construction projects, “blur” images, laptop ministudios and stereoscopic photography. This is an “idea” book that will introduce one to various creative techniques and stimulate the reader to know paths in photography. For some projects, one needs additional skills beyond photography. And on any one subject, additional research and reading is warranted. This book is a quick read – and a worthwhile purchase, particularly for those wishing to broaden the scope of their skills and interests.
