Fine Art Flower Photography

Creative Techniques and the Art of Observation

Tony Sweet

About this book
  • A striking new collection from the author of Fine Art Nature Photography
  • Includes instructions for creating varied photographic effects
  • Detailed specs and equipment given for each picture with "before" and "after" versions provided for many images

    Acclaimed nature photographer Tony Sweet helps us to see a familiar subject through new eyes in this astonishing collection of flower photography. Ranging from the elegiac to the experimental, these pictures offer a kaleidoscopic survey of innovative photographic techniques--including multiple exposures and "slide sandwiching" --along with instructions for creating similar effects in your own photography. Perfectly balancing grace and spontaneity, Fine Art Flower Photography ensures that none of us will look at (or photograph) flowers the same way again.
