Wiley Announces Photo Inspiration: Secrets Behind Stunning Images
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and 1x.com announce the availability of Photo Inspiration: Secrets Behind Stunning Images (Wiley, 978-1-1182-9052-1, May 2012), a unique book that presents readers with inspiring photographs as well as underlying techniques to help improve their photography skills. For this new guide, 1x.com worked with their most talented photographers to handpick 100 awe-inspiring photographs and provide the back-story and photographer’s secrets that helped capture the image.
“Unlike many other how-to books, Photo Inspiration does not include test-shots; it includes beautiful works of art selected by a team of professional curators,” said 1x.com. “The best camera doesn't take the best photos, while a skilled photographer can take extraordinary photos with any camera. We made this book because we believe that everyone has a huge inner potential, just waiting to be unlocked. We think that the best way to learn is to gather the wisdom of successful photographers, with practical advice and hints how to take specific photos instead of abstract theoretical knowledge that is hard to apply. With dedication and inspiration, we believe that anyone can become a photography artist.”
Photo Inspiration provides a unique combination of the final photograph with the tools and knowledge that made the shot possible. The book offers concise and accessible descriptions, as told by the photographers, for the ideas, vision, performance, setup, location, equipment, camera settings, lighting diagrams, and image editing methods needed to capture each amazing photo featured in the book.
Photo Inspiration: Secrets Behind Stunning Images is now available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide in both print and all e-book formats. For a full list of retailers, visit www.wiley.com/buy/9781118290521.
