The Ilex Introduction to Photography
By Haje Jan Kamps
Publishing 30th March 2014
This is the back-to-basics guide that explains the fundamentals of photography whilst using contemporary examples to illustrate each concept. By understanding the basics of how your camera works, and the few simple rules that make photos work, you’ll soon find your own pictures filling with life and character.
Families, kids, weddings, pets, landscapes, black- and-white, wildlife, urban, sport, panoramas, 3D living pictures—whatever you want to photograph and however you want to display it, you’ll find everything you need to know in this book.
The Weekend Photographer
By Chris Gatcum
Publishing 30th March 2014
Photography is about so much more than technically perfect images: most photographers want to experiment, try something new, create visual surprises—above all, have fun. Chris Gatcum’s first collection of creative exercises for the hobbyist photographer was a worldwide best-seller, and in this sequel he reveals more of the techniques that anyone can master, and that are guaranteed to result in pictures with the ‘wow’ factor.
