Serial Photography: Using Themed Images to Improve Your Photographic Skills--New from Rocky Nook
Santa Barbara, CA—One of the most promising ways to improve as a photographer is through the use of serial photography—a method that author Harald Mante has used and taught throughout his career.
In Serial Photography: Using Themed Images to Improve Your Photographic Skills (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD), Mante explains how to focus your photographic work on themes, objects, shapes, colors, and moods. After putting his methods into practice, you will soon notice that you are able to train yourself to look at things in new and exciting ways, rather than randomly searching for that one great shot. And by continuously adding new images to your collections, you will improve the quality of your photographic work.
In this beautifully illustrated book, Mante presents many of his own photographic series and gives thorough explanations of the concepts behind each series, providing motivation for readers to pursue their own serial projects. Serial Photography can be used as a guide or textbook by both amateur and professional photographers, as well as by students.
