Format:Taschenbuch
Ich habe bereits einige Fotobücher in den letzten zwei Jahren gelesen (meist in der Originalsprache englisch). Dieses Buch ist mit Abstand das beste was ich zum Thema Hochzeitsfotografie bzw. Portraitfotografie in die Hände bekommen habe.

+ Es ist sehr umfassend.
+ Viele Situationen sind auch auf andere (nicht Hochzeits-) Anlässe übertragbar.
+ Die Tips sind sehr praxisorientiert.
+ Der Fotograf arbeitet nicht mit 'ganz großer' Ausrüstung (entspricht durchaus noch (mit ein paar Abstrichen) der von ambitionierten Amateuren).
+ Es ist gut gegliedert.
+ Das Design ist ansprechend.

Leider ist es zur Zeit nur in englisch verfügbar und man muß die Entfernungsangaben von Fuß in Meter umrechnen (letzteres bedeutet aber nur teilen durch 3; kein wirkliches Problem).

Ich würde das Buch jederzeit wieder kaufen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Wedding Photography Book Out There 17. Februar 2010
Von M. Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've scoured Amazon.com for wedding photography books that encompass the perfect blend of inspiration, technique and overall workflow. And finally, this book arrives. The layout is excellent, with logical chapter breaks, informative call-out boxes, and full sections devoted to natural light, on camera ETTL flash, off camera flash, ceremony workflow, reception workflow, and a few more. Also, some books are pretty dated as far as equipment, but the author refreshingly describes using his Canon 5D Mark II AND 7D. That might not seem like a big deal at first, but in many places he talks about leveraging the amazing high-ISO capabilities of cameras like this with your other settings. For example, in the off camera flash sections, he talks about the use of these high ISO settings to cut flash power by half, thus conserving battery life. There's not a lot in here about pricing/contracts, but that's not what I was looking for. If you know what you want to charge, but want to take your wedding photography to the next level, this is the book. Buy it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very specific advice from a successful photographer 14. März 2010
Von Brent A. Thale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't normally buy wedding photography books, but after flipping through this one I couldn't resist getting it. The author, a former engineer, gives very specific advice on how to get certain looks, defines his terms, and shows example pictures both using and not using his techniques, very helpful.

I liked the simple description of "loop" lighting and why it is desirable for this type of photography. The composition chapters, which very specifically list things to look for to set up a good shot, are also excellent. The author's advice on how to work with assistants to dynamically position off-camera lights to add depth and separation is also great, although unfortunately this technique requires at least one full-time assistant, so don't expect to duplicate the author's work going solo.

Some minor nitpicks: I thought the advice for making a snoot out of a rolled-up magazine was silly, it looks unprofessional and there are many inexpensive, sleek-looking snoots on the market that don't risk damaging the flash unit or present a fire hazard. Also, the author repeatedly uses the word "perspective" when I believe he means "cropping" or "framing" as on page 25 when he says he stays in one place while zooming to change perspective. Additionally, I thought his equipment recommendations were strange since they involve low-end zooms that change aperture based on zoom settings, I would think this would interfere with the manual flash control the author uses.

The book doesn't focus on gear but be warned the author uses Canon equipment so don't expect any Nikon CLS tips or anything but passing references to other brands. Surprisingly the author uses relatively inexpensive gear and recommends even cheaper gear to save money, which is fine I guess but considering that the author routinely shoots all-day events with two assistants, I would think the assistants' salaries are going to dwarf any equipment expense and this topic is not really touched on.

Curiously missing from this book is any specific information of how the photos are post-processed in programs like Photoshop. Clearly some of the shots are retouched and the author occasionally refers to Photoshop, but there is no chapter on what his post-processing workflow is.

Anyway, this is an excellent book filled with beautiful photos and real-world advice from someone who has done the work. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Ought to be Required Reading for ANY Photographic Education Class! 22. Februar 2010
Von MaJPix - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have been a professional photographer specializing in weddings for over 30 years and have NEVER read any book with such intense information! Check for yourself: search the other "instructional" books listed on Amazon, Borders or any bookstore and you'll come to the same conclusion as me- there is nothing that even comes close to Mr. Ziser's "how to" approach. We as photographers, enjoy delving into a beautiful image and explore the impact and composition, but rarely are provided the insight in order to obtain those outstanding results. David's approach comes across to the reader as if he is in front of the class giving a seminar. The book is written in a very easy to understand and conversational language that any aspiring photographer to the most advanced can comprehend.

So often, many books written by photographers illustrate specific points, but rarely do the accompanied images reflect such depth and dimension as Mr. Ziser's. The quality of the photographs almost "jump off the page" and the cool thing is, he explains the technique to achieve it! There are many "starving" photographers out there, wondering why they can't make a good living at their craft. By its very nature, once the photography improves, they can raise their prices with confidence. What David teaches in his book will make one's images stand out! He opens the door to unbelievable lighting techniques that include everything from nature's light to creativity with a simple "flashlight."

After just reading a few pages, the reader will start to view wedding photography as truly an art. The information revealed in "Captured By the Light", along with the beautiful photographs will never be out of date. The lessons in this book are timeless; because the most basic areas of photography that are discussed explore the simple rules of photography as an art. Some of these topics include: exposure, lighting, composition, choice of equipment and camera lens, etc. and they are covered in rich detail. I think this book will soon become the "bible" in photography from the advanced amateur to the seasoned professional photographer. I also would like to commend publishers on the outstanding quality of the book.

This publication is surely: "The essential guide to creating EXTRAORDINARY wedding photography!" The cost of this book is very reasonable, but what one takes from it- education, is priceless!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Have book for any serious photographers 29. März 2010
Von HP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book covers systematically all topics in wedding/portrait photography. This book is an inspiration source, a repetition of techniques, or truly an essential guide. You may need to be an intermediate photographer to get the most out of the book - know your gear and lightning/photography theories. However, it isn't just simple to buy this book and become a wedding photographer. Most off-camera-flash setups in the book are based on an assistant that can move the light source around. Light stand can help, but can not replace the flexibility of a person, especially when time is limited during a wedding. This book constantly remains me about "situation awareness": looking for backgrounds, compositions, geometry, lens choice, lightning/ambient, planning ahead - do it right first time and save lots of time in post-processing. Overall I am very happy to have this book. Highly recommended. Thank you David Ziser.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best technical book for wedding photography 17. April 2010
Von Enche Tjin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is simply the best wedding photography up to date, and every wedding photographer or aspiring wedding photographer should get at least one copy. A lot of wedding photographer books out there showcase a lot of great pictures from great wedding photographers, but most of them are insufficient in discussing basic technical and practical aspects. Therefore, you get only a little bit from those books.

Captured by the light by David Ziser is different. It is not only about lighting. It guides you from the very basic such as posing, lighting, composition, equipments technical aspect of shooting, wedding walk through and so on. It is presented in step by step with plenty of illustration along the way.

Ziser is also generous about sharing about camera gears that he used. He use Canon system as his main gear and several strobes such as Quantum. He discussed his camera and lenses one by one from his most favorite which is Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS. This is quite surprising to me, but he has argument to back up his decision. Although Ziser discussed extensively about his Canon gears, if you shoot Nikon, Sony or other brand, don't be discouraged because other brands have comparable camera and lenses too.

So what is the major take away form this book? If you are following his instruction and practice it well, then your images should be significantly improved, especially lighting and composition.

What this book is not:

This book is about traditional wedding photography, so if you are looking for ideas for candid/photojournalistic style, you might be disappointed. It does not discuss about relationship between photographer and client or business too. This book is also not about how to retouch your photos, it is trying to get everything correct in the first place.

In conclusion this book is a must have for beginner wedding photographers. It does not covers all aspect on how to be a great wedding photographer, but it provides a strong foundation. And because it discuss a great deal about portraiture, especially on location portraits, you might get a great benefit if you loves shooting portraits. Save yourself plenty of money from attending basic wedding photography workshop by reading this book.
