Description

Mostly candid and spontaneous, the documentary photograph serves to record and preserve a moment in time while the photographer plays the role of an objective observer, minimising their influence on the subject of focus. This book is intended to inspire the reader to explore, define, plan, shoot, and share documentary photographs, sparking creative ideas and guiding them as they define their own approach. Through the work of the author, and ten seasoned photographers who have visually documented stories all over the world, this book will build the readers curiosity, confidence and courage to take on personal or professional documentary assignments. There are tips that will help challenge, strengthen, broaden, or even shatter a long-standing perspective, or expose a view of life that wouldn't otherwise be seen. Uniquely, this book adds to the readers development by helping them share their skills with their family; the Seek and Shoot chapter is filled with fun exercises that can make photography enjoyable and educational for their children.
