"For the person who likes to take pictures or just got a new camera, EXPRESSIVE PHOTOGRAPHY: THE SHUTTER SISTERS' GUIDE TO SHOOTING FROM THE HEART is a collection of photographic techniques and ideas from a group of women who call themselves The Shutter Sisters. Check out their cool website to get a feel for their style. I love the life-infused tone and hearing different approaches to this accessible art form. Why not go the extra step and turn your photography more into art than chronicles?" -Ecomama Guide to Living Green blog

Ten women photographers shooting from the heart collaborate and produce a wonderfully complete reference book for exactly that: expressive photographing . The Shutter Sister s Expressive Photography is an eye-candy guidebook that illustrates how delightful and heartfelt images can be captured. From lighting through perspective and composition to approach, the reader is inspired to look at simple life and the world around them with a rejuvenated creative eye . The book is filled with images from many facets of photographic opportunities-life as it happens in all sorts of lighting situations: outdoor in natural light; indoor with artificial light; or soft light from a window; and the world at night . I absolutely loved this book and many times have it by my bedside for inspiration. It will be a cherished present for the avid photography buff. -"Sacramento Book Review"

Ten authors, collectively known as the Shutter Sisters, successfully parlay their blog (shuttersisters.com) into an analogous print format, which is no small feat! Edited by Clark-a professional photographer and founder of the Sisters-the book is unusual among photography guides because it is far more concerned with questions of why than with lengthy explanations of how. The advice presented in this approachable guide addresses primarily issues of creativity, inspiration, and meaning for photographers in a way that many will find helpful. It is likely to appeal most to photographers less enamored by technological gadgetry and to busy young parents. -"Library Journal"

"In our new book, Expressive Photography: A Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart, we introduce another approach to portraiture: focusing on the details. Although often overlooked, the small gestures and subtle nuances of your subject often can tell you more about them than any headshot ever could."--Digital Photo Magazine

"It's such a relaxing, enjoyable book, I find that I keep going back to the book and leafing through it. Bring it to a cafe on a rainy day while you're sipping a hot beverage, or wrap it up for the holidays and give it to your favorite photographer. If you end up with photos even half as good as what's in here, you won't regret it."--CoolMomPicks Online

"I cannot recommend it enough, whether as a gift to yourself or a loved one. Whether you're a novice, amateur, or professional photographer, Expressive Photography is replete with inspiring imagery and practical tips and tricks on approach, perspective, composition, lighting, details, and processing for different types of photos (e.g., landscape, portraits, still life, etc.)."--Life.Style with Christine Koh on the PulseNetwork

"I also picked up the book, Expressive Photography, written by Tracey Clark and her and her friends over at Shutter Sisters. I really like the book, and feel like it's pushed me to think about different ways to frame my photos, things that I probably wouldn't have thought to try. This book is not full of technical jargon, rather, it's about looking through the lens with fresh eyes. I think it is the perfect companion for more straight forward technical books that you may own."--endorsement on the blog "two straight lines"

"Tracey Clark, a natural light photographer, started Shutter Sisters (what an awesome place to visit) in Blogland and now has released a book called Expressive Photography. I was so excited to get it-I can be found sitting outside piano/soccer/horse lessons with my face buried in it." --several websites including PhotoClique website, Information Publishing and Marketing Portal website, Photo Focus website, Linda's Reading Blog, Farewell Photograph Workshop website, and this from Modern Prairie Girl:

Durch dieses wunderbare Buch habe ich eine ganz neue Art der Fotografie entdeckt! Es besticht weniger durch konkrete Foto-Tipps und -Anleitungen, als durch eine neue Sichtweise auf die Fotografie und das Leben selbst. Im Mittelpunkt stehen nicht Technik, perfekt gestaltete Bilder oder das Benutzen von High-Tech-Kameras, sondern das Festhalten der kleinen Freuden, Gefühle und Glücksmomente im Alltag und im privaten Leben gewöhnlicher Menschen. Es zeigt Wege zu einer gefühlsvollen, warmherzigen, unmittelbaren und lebensbejahrenden Fotografie. Äusserst inspirierend!

HASH(0x92b48f00) von 5 Sternen Follow Your Heart 16. September 2010
Von Conrad J. Obregon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When my daughter was 14, her best friend and she borrowed flutes from her school's music room, even though neither had ever played the instruments. As they sat trying to learn the fingering and to play a duet, I took a couple of dimly-lit photographs. Thirty years later, those images still hang on my wall, reminding me of that moment of friendship and experiment. Visitors often ask me what the photographs are about. I was reminded of this as I read "Expressive Photography: The Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart".

The Shutter Sisters are a group of women who operate a photography blog. Ten of the sisters have joined forces to create this book. Each of the sisters writes one chapter on a subject including such genres as Portraiture, Stillness, and Togetherness. Each chapter is illustrated with images taken by the writer and other sisters. There are also excerpts from the Shutter Sisters' blog and sidebars telling us to "See It!" with shooting data and "Shoot It!" urging us to experiment with a certain type of photograph.

Basically the book is a collection of random tips and motivational words about the importance of photographing from the heart. The pictures vary in quality from highly interesting to bland family snapshots. There is little of a technical nature in the book, and there is little that tells how to apply technique to one's vision, other than reminders that technique can help the photographer to capture what is in his or her heart. Occasionally, one of the authors will go on for a page about the difficulties of being a homemaker, or the anxiety and joy of being a mother. While I acknowledge the validity of these sentiments, the authors often failed to make the connection with creating a good photograph. Instead most of the text emphasizes the importance of following our emotions in photography, a sentiment with which I whole-heartedly agree, but I also recognize that it is through the application of technique that the photographer transforms a vision created by, among other things, emotions, into an artful photograph. I often got the feeling that the pictures were more successful in preserving memories for the photographer, then in revealing what was in the photographer's heart to the viewer.

I have no doubt that there will be an audience of people with cameras with whom these sentiments will resonate. For an old geezer like me, who continues searching for ways to make expressive photographs, the book seemed much more about the importance of emotions than creating images that will speak to viewers.

HASH(0x92b472f4) von 5 Sternen A different kind of photography book 22. November 2010
Von Kristine Lofgren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Expressive Photography is a book written by the "Shutter Sisters" about shooting great pictures from the heart. This is not your typical photography book; you will find little about technique in this guide. Instead, this book focuses on helping you find the emotional side to your technique.

There are jillions of technique books out there, so I was happy to find a book that offers an alternative discussion. This book assumes that you already have a bit of technical proficiency and are looking to expand the heart of your images. Unfortunately, this book falls a bit short of being a useful guide that I would find myself turning to over and over.

So the pluses and the minuses.

Good:
- Lots of images, many with accompanying "Set It!" information (ISO, Exposure, Aperture, Focal Length).
- A blurb on each photograph that explains why, at least to the photographer, each image works.
- Lovely prose introducing each section and each topic.

Bad:
- Not all of the images do actually work. Many seem as though they simply evoke the photographer's emotions and were included for this reason.
- A lack of real detailed information. Many of the tips and suggestions seem to fall under the umbrella of "shoot things that make you feel emotion." A nice sentiment, but it doesn't really help me become a better photographer.
- Perhaps too much of this book is occupied by the author's reflections on parenting, working from home and homemaking.

Make no mistake, there are tips in this book about shooting, many tried and true and some new ones, but there is a lack of any real direction about how to use that technique to create a picture that reflects the emotion. The most useful books for me are the ones that not only explain technique but how to use that technique to create a successful photograph. For me, that probably means that I will continue to reference what I consider the classic book on emotion in photography (Galen Rowell's Inner Game of Outdoor Photography).

Having said that, this book is well done and beautifully written. If you are looking for a book that is one part photography technique, two parts journal/self-help and three parts interesting photography, this is the one for you.

HASH(0x92b4d9d8) von 5 Sternen Shooting from the Heart hits the Mark! 17. September 2010
Von myriam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having just recently purchased my first camera (at the age of 41), I am very grateful for this book. I've decided the book will serve as my companion in my photography endeavors. It's creators do a wonderful job of reminding me to take notice of the small details and to move at my own pace. With so much technology available to us, it is easy for one to feel intimidated by the immense possibilities for amazing photos. This book reminds us that none of that matters, the most important thing is to translate what is in our hearts to the image. These women, are brave in their encouragement of simplicity and intuition. Not to mention their generosity in sharing images that give us glimpses into their lives, giving us permission to breathe. Beautiful, just beautiful images!! BRAVO!!!

HASH(0x92b4d4c8) von 5 Sternen Can't decide how I feel about it... 18. November 2010
Von Jesse Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I really wanted to like this book. And I do. Just not as much as I wanted to. I'm an an advanced hobbyist photographer, and have noticed a lack of emotion/expression/story in my images. I want to fix that. This book helped. But it didn't really resonate with me. Written by a collection of women (one per chapter), I found it hard to connect with. I'm a male scientist, and this book was a bit too poetic for my tastes. Each chapter is structured identically: two pages each for Introduction, Approach, Perspective, Composition, Lighting, Details, and Processing. By the fifth time I got to "composition", it got a little repetitive.

The images are okay... and they are expressive. The writing, however, occasionally seemed to lack substance. A little too floofy and ethereal. And much of it was presented at a level more appropriate for beginners.

If you're a mom who's recently obtained your first SLR with a kit lens, you're about the perfect target audience for the book. If you're giving a camera like that to someone (especially female), this book would accompany it perfectly. Well, this one and Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera, which focuses on the basic technical stuff more.

Similar "how to be creative" photography books that I enjoyed more and feel that I got more out of included The Photographer's Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos and Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision. I highly recommend those. BUT... whether or not they're "better" will depend on the reader. I can see this book being more appreciated by some people. If you're considering whether to get this book, spend some time at shuttersistersdotcom first, and see if you like their style, as the book reads much like their blog posts.

HASH(0x92b4da50) von 5 Sternen A Good Blog Does Not Make a Good Photography Book 22. August 2011
Von C Ayson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Seriously, this book is provides very little content for anyone trying to advance their own photography skills.

"Will also teach you how to create your own compelling photographic images - one click at a time" explain how this book teaches anything....at all.

This is an excerpt on Portraiture Lighting: "Every photographer knows that light is everything. Lighting can turn the most ordinary things into magic, elevate them to a kind of poetry. In the right light, everyone looks more beautiful, more true. Lighting can make or break a portrait. The less harsh the lighting (the few the shadows), the softer the face will look and the smoother the skin will appear. Lighting can transform a simple snapshot into an artful portrait."

That is pretty much the extent of the kind of information available to create your own compelling photographic image.

A good blog does not make a good photography book.
