Floranova

By Warwick Orme

Random House, Australia, 2004. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. For photographer Warwick Orme, 'Floranova' is a culmination of a lifelong interest in photography and a passion for the beauty of flowers. His images are unique, conveying his personal passion for and knowledge of his subject. Now with the use of cutting edge photographic technology and lavish format, Orme has taken the traditional floral still-life into breathtaking new territory. Shooting and cropping close, he captures exquisite details of stamens, pollen, nuance of colour and pattern with all the analytical fervour of a botanist. Back-lighting adds a surreal translucency that illuminates the spirit of the subject as well. Glowing blossoms explode in super-saturated colour while the soft pale hues of fragile blooms are evocative of the subtlety of watercolour. Orme refers to his radical floral portraits as digital watercolours. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Photography; Photography; ISBN: 0759310106. ISBN/EAN: 9780759310100.

Better Available Light Photography

By Joe Farace and Barry Staver

Focal Press, USA, 1999. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Better Available Light Photography is a practical guide to understanding the different kinds of lighting challenges that exist and how to overcome them in order to create great photographs. This includes photographing indoor sports, night sporting events, and special activities such as plays, holiday lights, and fireworks. User-friendly and full of practical advice, this book will help both amateur and professional photographers create quality images under less than perfect available light situations. Often the most difficult, yet most rewarding, images are created when photographers are working under difficult lighting conditions. First, there is the challenge of meeting and overcoming technical obstacles that normally might prevent you from producing a well-exposed photograph. Second, photographs made under lighting conditions different from the "F16 and the sun over your right shoulder" instruction-sheet standard are more interesting. Better Available Light Photography is written for the amateur or aspiring professional photographer who has been frustrated in trying to create useful images under less than optimum lighting conditions. This includes photographing sports indoors, night sporting events, special activities such as plays, holiday lights and even fireworks. User friendly and full of real world advice, this book will help readers discover the joys of creating images when photographic conditions are at their most difficult. 156 pages.

Light Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting

By Fil Hunter and Paul Fuqua

Focal Press, USA, 1997. Second Edition. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. This highly respected text, now in paperback, has been thoroughly updated and revised. It introduces a logical theory of photographic lighting --- one that teaches beginning photographers to predict results before setting up lights. This is not primarily a how-to book with only set examples for photographers to follow. Rather, Light: Science and Magic provides the reader with a comprehensive theory of the nature and principles of light to allow individual photographers to use lighting to express their own creativity. Numerous photographs and illustrations provide clear examples of the theories delineated within the text, while sidebars highlight special lighting questions. Although styles of photographic lighting continue to change, Light: Science and Magic does not go out of fashion because it is not based on style; rather it is based on the behavior of light. These principles will not change until fundamental physics does. 345 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Photography; Photography; ISBN: 0240802756.

Kokoda Front Line

By Neil McDonald

Hachette, Australia, 2012. Trade Paperback. Near Fine Condition. Damien Parer was without doubt Australia's greatest war photographer. He helped create the Anzac legend and many, many of our iconic war images are his photographs. He served his apprenticeship as a stills photographer on the famous Chauvel film, Forty Thousand Horsemen, and was appointed Official Photographer covering the Australian fighting in the early days of World War II in Greece and Syria, and Tobruk. His most famous documentary is Kokoda Front Line! , made during the darkest days of the campaign in mid-1942 (it went on to win Australia's first Academy Award). His photographs and films brought the war home to Australians and are now an integral part of our military history. He died in action shot by Japanese machine gun fire, as he filmed an American advance on Peleliu. This is a colourful and authoritative story of a great Australian and includes many of his most iconic photographs. 366 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

In The Line of Duty: A Tribute to New York's Finest and Bravest

By Bernard B. Kerik and Thomas Von Essen [Forewords]

Regan Books, New York, 2001. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. On September 11, 2001, with the terrorist attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York City, the United States entered one of the greatest trials in its history. There were thousands of deaths in the wake of that tragedy -- and thousands of heroes. Led by Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik and Fire Commissioner Thomas Von Essen, the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the New York Fire Department (FDNY) banded together in courage and hope during the rescue and recovery effort. In the Line of Duty salutes the brave men and women of those two departments, who proved to the nation and the world the strength and heroism of the American people. Through over 100 pages of black and white photographs (and 16 pages of full colour), this memorial volume documents the heroism of New York's Finest and Bravest in the hours and days following the disaster. With a Foreword in tribute to the search and rescue teams -- and their fallen comrades -- by Commissioner Kerik, and filled with the inspirational words of national and spiritual leaders, In the Line of Duty bears witness to the indomitable spirit of the American people. 125 pages.

Jacques Henri Lartigue: Photographer

By Vicki Goldberg

Thames & Hudson, Great Britain, 1998. First UK Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Jacques-Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) is a central figure of importance in the history of photography. "An amateur graced with genius for forms", at the age of 12 he was already producing photographs capturing the carefree antics of his eccentric family and friends. It was in these early years that he developed a fascination for the subjects that concerned him throughout his life: the immensity of the world to a child; the seaside; women of fashion; and above all, movement -from people walking or jumping, to flying machines and motor cars. Lartigue's photographic work was little-known until the 1960s, which gave him a unique freedom to create images for himself alone, unfettered by the criticism of others. His images evoke the sparkle of a long-gone era, documenting an idyllic world of ladies with parasols and gravity-defying hats; people flying kites or strolling in the park, on bicyles and at the races. This book offers an illustrated tribute to this photographer. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Photography; Photography; ISBN: 0500542260. ISBN/EAN: 9780500542262.

Material

By Peter Fraser

Steidl, Germany, 2002. First Edition. Hardcover (Printed Boards). Near Fine Condition. Illustrator: Peter Fraser [Photographs]. Material is what we start with and material is what we are left with. It is all there is." So says Peter Fraser, who uses photography to investigate the physical substance of the world and to question the way in which we perceive our surroundings. Material contains two of his most recent series, in which Fraser evokes the camera's democratic way of looking in order to analyze the different kinds of materials from which the world appears to be constituted. Casting himself in the role of an explorer gathering evidence of another world, Fraser selectively documents the mundane and the extraordinary. Made in the laboratories of an applied physics department, the first series included herein depicts the tools designed to measure the nature of matter, the very exploration of which Fraser is already engaged in with his camera. The second series, and the antithesis of the first, gives form to the everyday mess and grime that permeate our surroundings, the detritus and decrepitude that are the ultimate destination of all organic matter. As the sum of these two bodies of work, Material probes the notion that matter is the primary substance of all living and non-living things. Illustrator: Peter Fraser [Photographs].
