"Based on the idea that it's not what a picture looks like but what it feels like that makes it good, this is a book that manages to be both practical and inspiring. Organised around six key ideas (Shoot the Moment; See the Light; Feel the Rhythm, and so on), it forces readers to see, not just shoot - and it will do it by walking them through the ideas, the techniques and then the projects, all laid out in graphic, beautiful, instructive way: Read about the technique, see it in practice in one of Lange's photos, and then learn how to replicate it yourself. Underneath it all lies Lange's real message: 'The more you appreciate how special each moment is, and see how you can capture its meaning and its mysteries, the better your pictures will be. The moment you appreciate how special it is that you're all together on the beach, or at a two-year-olds birthday party, or that light is pouring through your bedroom onto the bed where your wife is resting is the point at which your photograph becomes a testament to your way of seeing the world'." --Publisher description.

A wonderful book about taking photographs. This is a how to book about seeing rather than worrying too much about technical details, although they are covered too. This book will not tell you which camera or lens to buy.

OK for some, but not for me. Some of the pictures shown would be the ones I would not want others to see or know it was me that took them.

These are the kind of pictures that I enjoy looking at and the kind that I wish I could take more of--a bit quirky but fun & appealing.
