LEE Filters BOOK-INSPRO Reviews

Book: Inspiring Professionals is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very informative resource I purchased the book after a recommendation from a friend. The book is very well put together, it shows examples from several sucessful photograghers and each photographer goes into depth on how they set up the particular shot, what they wanted to achieve and the equipment they used. Rather than just dry data, you get to see the result of the individual technique. For me, that provides a goal to try to achiev, when I can see what result can be achieved. Although it's produced by a manufacturer of filters, you don't get the feeling any particular product is being pushed. It really is a resource collection from professional photographers providing you with their vast experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bathroom read For me this is not the type of book you sit down and read for an hour. To get the most out of it I suggest just reading a page or two and really soak in the images and story's. It's like a coffee table book thats small enough (and cheep enough) to leave on the back of a toilet! One warning is that you'll end up wanting to spend lots of money on filters afterwards. The good thing is that you'll know what your buying instead of the fake product examples you see online where every filter is on the same image of a pool or a meadow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent introduction to filters... This book provides a very good introduction to the use of basic and not so basic filters. The things that I like are: 1. a brief biography of each photographer is given in the front of the book, together with a website where you can go and see their work. 2. Each image shows the photographer who took it, the filters that were used, their placement and the result. This way, I at least have amodel to use in trying some of my image shots with their filters. 3. Each description and the accompanying photos and drawings are covered in two pages that can be read independently of all the others, so if I am interested in a particular filter or filter combination, I can simply flip to the appropriate pages and read the text and see the result. 4. Although published for a specific brand of filters, the methods can be used for any brand of square or rectangular filters. The only downside, if it can be called that, is that all the photographers and most of the images are from the same part of the world, but this shouldn't stop anyone who wants to learn about the use of filters from acquiring the book. It is a very useful complement to my photography library and gives me some very definitive ideas about how to use some of the filters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but no image EXIF provided I found this book only partially useful. The three things some image and descriptions lacked were (1) better descriptions on how the pictures were taken (time of day, position of sun/light, white balance, etc.), (2) EXIF data for each image, and (3) before and after images so readers can see the difference made by use of the filter(s). For example, you can control the amount of light that enters the camera by aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Without the EXIF data one cannot tell the effect these variables had on the image. The assumption made in each case was that the filter was responsible for the effects. Some authors were more descriptive than others in providing this information. That said, there were some stunning examples and after reading it I know I will change my technique for some pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reduce Your Reliance on Photoshop This book was smaller than I had anticipated; however, it was certainly worth the price. I must have looked at the photos in the book at least a dozen times over the past couple of weeks. I believe in the use of ND filters to balance the light in your image and to enhance saturation and color; you won't have to PS as much. As it is appropriated titled, it will inspire you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Handy Aid I'm very glad I bought this at the same time I purchased some 6x4 filters. It basically provides information and examples of use for most of the filter in the Lee range. The specific examples are easy to follow and do give you more of an idea about how these filters can be applied, either alone or in various combinations, to enhance image production before post-processing. Individual photos are presented, taken by pro photographers, along with an account of why they opted to use the filters they did and small diagrams showing exactly where in the image those filters were applied. The design of the book is excellent and easy to follow, and could in many ways be classified as a good quality coffee table book as it contains many beautiful photos. Book dimensions: 8.5 x 6 and about 0.75 thick (132 pages)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short, Sweet & Concise Getting started in film medium format for landscape photography. Researching filters discovered this book. Excellent landscape photo examples with details on which filters used and how they were positioned to create picture. Not a elementary book on what a filter is and what it does, rather a pleasant peek at possibilities when using square format filter systems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricy good book to understand filter This book has very good examples of using LEE filters. The description of the situation and the location of the filters are well illustrated with pictures. But for $, I expect more examples like those
