1.0 out of 5 stars Not My Cup of Tea
If I had to throw away one book only, this is the one.

Creativity is a subjective thing. In photography, it is even harder to define. In this book, there are less than five images that can be defined as photographs. You cannot just muddle the images and make them hardly recognizable as photographs and put them in the category of impressionism. I have the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthusiastically recommended for students of photography, Oct. 8 2001
This review is from: Photographing Creative Landscapes: Simple Tools for Artistic Images and Enhanced Creativity (Paperback)
In Photographing Creative Landscapes: Simple Tools For Artistic Images And Enhanced Creativity, professional landscape photographer Michael Orton shows how to expand one's creativity and learn to photograph artistic images drawn from the world that surrounds us. He shows how to develop a more artistic approach to photography, expand options for photographing the landscape, how to apply creative photographic controls to any image, as well as find sources of creative inspiration and using them to improve photographic works. Orton also draws upon his many years of expertise and experience to show how to use color to capture mood and emotion; add motion for dynamic images; capture subtle details; the dramatic use of natural light; adding flash for artistic effects; incorporation multiple exposures and sandwiched images for a "painterly" look. Photographing Creative Landscapes is enthusiastically recommended for students of photography in general, and photography buffs seeking to improve their images of natural landscapes in particular.

This review is from: Photographing Creative Landscapes: Simple Tools for Artistic Images and Enhanced Creativity (Paperback)
If I had to throw away one book only, this is the one.

Creativity is a subjective thing. In photography, it is even harder to define. In this book, there are less than five images that can be defined as photographs. You cannot just muddle the images and make them hardly recognizable as photographs and put them in the category of impressionism. I have the impression that these photographs are poor imitations of Freeman Patterson's dreamscape photographs. I found the images in the other book - Fine Art Photography - more creative and acceptable.

I am really disappointed. Sorry, I just cannot find the creativity here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book for tree and nature lovers and photographers!, Jan. 8 2010
This review is from: Photographing Creative Landscapes: Simple Tools for Artistic Images and Enhanced Creativity (Paperback)
This compilation of stunning images from nature is truly a work of art. It is hard to believe that they are photographs! An added bonus is the author's description of how he photographically created the images which would be of great interest to nature photographers. This is truly a beautiful book.
