This is a revised edition of the bestselling Hot Shots. Forget expensive kit and incomprehensible jargon, Hot Shots is for everyone who points and snaps, and not just enthusiasts and amateurs, but also designers, illustrators and anyone who needs to create imagery for their work and pleasure. If you want to take photographs that look exciting, fun and professional, this portable, easy-access tome is for you.
Using over 100 images as examples, created by a number of young, innovative photographers on a variety of cameras, both film and digital, the aim is to highlight and explain various photographic techniques, qualities and effects, using extended captions and simple technical info.
Issues covered include composition, exposure, low-light, night shots, portraits, perspective, city- and landscapes, speed, movement, abstraction, animals, color, flash, silhouettes and black and white, amongst others. Have you ever wondered how to get a shot of a moving athlete in focus against a blurred background? Or, of a landscape without the distraction of focusing on the foreground? Well, here’s where you’ll find the answer.
Examples are arranged by colour, to enhance the visual appeal, pace, and impact of the contents, and to complement the book’s flick-through quality. Images are listed by subject on the contents page; each subject is allocated a specific color and icon, which feature throughout the book and indicate how certain images and techniques relate. Each caption tells us in clear, conversational language, how the photographer created the image, while spec details, for example, camera type, lens, film, shutter speed, and aperture, are included throughout.
