Steve Johnson 9781937538095 Overview

  • 1Description

In The Minimalist Photographer from Rocky Nook, author Steve Johnson covers photography from a minimalist perspective, proving it's possible to take great photographs with relatively inexpensive equipment. The minimalist process emphasizes the importance of first knowing what you want to achieve as a photographer and then choosing the most effective equipment, subject matter, and general approach to meet your goals. The minimalist photographer works with the idea that the brain and the eye are far more important than the camera.

This thought-provoking book begins by asking you to look inward and make the connections between your nature and your photography. Why do you want to take photographs and what subject matter are you attracted to? What type of photographer are you now and what type of photographer would you like to become? These are important questions to consider when deciding what approach works best for you.

In subsequent chapters, you'll learn about the equipment and workflow of a minimalist photographer as Johnson discusses the strengths and weaknesses of various types of cameras and explains why the biggest or most expensive pieces of equipment are not always the best. He also addresses the importance of lighting and teaches you how to achieve effective lighting without spending a small fortune. Also included are discussions about aesthetics and composition as well as a brief history of photography and the future of the art form.
