Great Photos - Simple Cameras
When we look at everyday life, we realize that it is far from easy. Indeed, we are often confronted with the opposite: complicated instead of simple; demanding instead of effortless.
As photographers, we face a similar situation in regard to our chosen hobby. The camera is a wonderful technical instrument, but its growing complexity can sometimes detract from the joy we find when we engage in creative work.
In this book, author Bernd Daub shows us that simplicity works. He describes how with simple camera techniques, traditional film, and some imagination we can create ambitious artwork. This book teaches us how to focus our attention on the motivation behind our chosen image and develop a strong impact without the need for hightech equipment and flawless exposures.
Learn about a variety of reasonably priced, low-tech cameras-such as the Holga, Diana, and Blackbird-as well as single-use cameras, the good old Kodak Brownie, and the pinhole camera. For price-conscious beginners and intermediate photographers with high-quality equipment, this book provides ideas for alternative techniques without large investments. You'll discover many new possibilities as your foster your creativity.
