make money with your digital photography by erin manning

„What’s your personality? Do you consider yourself an extrovert or introvert? Are you comfortable in large groups of people, or do you prefer to work alone?

The book „make money with your digital photography“ from Erin Manning is a great chance to find YOUR way in the world of photography and in the way to earn money with photography.

In the introduction she writes „it is an overview of opportunities“. The book is much more.

In short and very well words Erin Manning shows her own way in the world of living with photography. She shows the long way until you discover your preferences. And you can learn to find your personal style of photography.

Very sensible, very clear and with a lot of experience the author writes about the most difficult thing: to find your own personality and to express this in photos.

And then she shows how to make money if you know what you want and what you can.

The book has a very readable layout. In every chapter you find questions for practice and the answers.

At the end of every chapter you find a summary and some sentences to learn if you go outside without the book.

Portrait, sports, wedding, food and product, travel and more are the field of photography you find here.

In every chapter she has a part „Q&A with a Working Pro“. In sports photography she asks Serge Timacheff, in wedding photography she asks Robert Holley, in food photography she asks Lou Manna, in travel photography she asks Lorne Renick and after that in chapter 8 she writes „show me the money“.

So you get not only the view of Erin Manning. At the same time you get knowledge from specialized photographers and after that you find a lot of pages full with hard knowledge for earning money with photos.

It is a very readable book with collected experience and very instructive information. It is a book you need not read from the beginning to the end. Every chapter is a closed theme. But all together give you an inspirational way in the commercial fields of photography.

In my opinion the book is for active readers: read, think, do. So this book is very professional, has a good layout and is full of good energy. It is a book for people who want to bring in their own personality. Yes, she writes about equipment too.

But much more here you have a book full of chances. And the book is deep. That means here you find knowledge and experience combined with a very good table of contents. So it is a working book and it is a great book.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 from B. Matsumoto and C. F. Roullard

The Unofficial Quintessential Guide

Do you like knowledge? Are you a reader and do you want to know why and what – then this book is the first choice. The book from Brian Matsumoto and Carol F. Roullard gives you the knowledge of the handbook combined with technical, photographic and user friendly experience.

The Panasonic G2 is one of the highlights of a new photographic system: cameras with „big“ sensors and changeable lenses. And following the actual trend including video and new forms of photographic possibilities.

But this book is not a book with a lot of pictures and less text. It is a book with very interesting text including handbook information in combination with information about handling and photographic possibilities.

After getting started you find an explanation of using „Basic Photographic Ideas“.

This book is for people asking „why“. It is for readers. If you want to know a lot of detailed information about the laws of photography – technically and visually – then this is your book.

The internal logic of the camera we can see on the mode dial and the auto-Button. What you wish will happen. The camera can do the whole work for you or you can say the camera what should be done. This is the way through the book. From „Automatic settings“ over „Taking Partial Control“ until „Manual Operation of the Camera“ you can find different chapters.

After that Brian Matsumoto and Carol F. Roullard show us the System Approach of the Micro Four Thirds system and the possibilities until laboratory and research. And they explain some features we never knew before.

„Remember that Panasonic distinguishes between facial identification and facial recognition. The former describes the identification of a generic face… Face recognition goes a step further in that the camera executes software to determine if the detected face is stored among the registered faces. If the camera recognizes the detected face, you will be informed of it while framing the image and the persons name and age will be stored with the saved picture.“

This example shows the possibilities of this new camera. The first seven chapters of the book explain the whole photographic handling of the camera with a lot of technical and practical information. But this is not the end.

After that we find a chapter about „Flash photography“. It is an introduction in this special field of information with the handling of the internal and with external flashes. With examples we see the possibilities and the borders of the internal flash and how to create special effects.

The next chapter is an explanation of the video-mode. After that you understand the many possibilities of the camera.

I think the term „Quintessential Guide“ is right for this informative book. If you want to understand the camera and the possibilities until into the technical depth than the book is really good.

And the best is that the information is divided in senseful chapters. You can read like you want from beginner questions until professional themes or you search for a special problem in the index.

Some time ago I wrote that the snapshot was reinvented with the Lumix G2 because you can focusing and activate the shutter by pressing on the screen.

Reading the book from Brian Matsumoto and Carol F. Roullard you see the innovative approach and the possibilities of this camera because you can use the wonderful electronic viewfinder (this is my favourite way of taking pictures) or you can use the bright LCD-Screen if you want.

Brassai – The Monograph

Discover the night

“Brassai knew how to see the hundreds of insignificant details of daily life; many of the subjects of his photos are at first sight not very original: windows, cats, plane trees, people sleeping. He was receptive to their poetry just as it was, but unlike Robert Doisneau, for example, who said that he allowed himself to be impregnated by such poetry »like a piece of blotting paper« before re-creating it in effortless snapshots, Brassai absorbed it and used it to give a more detached poetry to his work. His starting point could equally be a nasturtium leaf or an iron chair in the Tuileries gardens.” (p. 155)
Discover photographie and other arts

The big book from Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie about “Brassai. The Monograph” is one of the best ways to understand a great photographer. The book contains articles about and from Brassai and a lot of photos and other ways of his art.

After half an hour you will develop a feeling for this man, after two days you will see in his way, after some weeks you will experience in his art. The book is impressive and a serious good work. Thank you for this book!
