Designed to encourage creativity and experimentation among photographers and fine artists, this refreshing guide offers an atypical approach to traditional photographic methods. Through a varied array of exercises, techniques, and experiments, readers are challenged to break free from convention and incorporate visual risk into their creative method and output. Sample topics include working with deliberate reticulation, employing pin-hole photography and other special film products, de-focusing, montage, mixing digital and film, magnification, scratching, and innovative presentation styles. Principles such as "don't think, just shoot" add a unique and essential perspective. The activities featured require only a basic understanding of the medium and have been selected to enhance the creative process for anyone interested in the visual arts.
