The Creative Photographer is a complete introduction to the modern medium of photography, designed to meet the needs of photography, art, and design students, as well as beginners who want a broad overview of the field. It approaches photography as an artistic medium for solving problems in visual communication, showing how established photographers and advanced students approach such typical photographic subjects as portraiture, landscape, still life, or fashion. At the same time, it offers a survey of techniques, including digital tools and methods, along with useful advice about how to become a working photographer. A comprehensive reference section lists key professional organizations and competitions, and provides a clear and concise guide to photography and the law, a glossary of terms, and a history time line. Finally, it is not only useful but also visually rich for an introductory guide, with more than 250 photographs selected to give a broad range of photographic expression.
