Renowned photographer George Lange’s work is guided by one simple truth: An unforgettable photograph is not about what the subject looks like, but what it feels like. In this entirely new kind of photography guide, written by Mr. Lange and Scott Mowbray, magazine editor and longtime amateur photographer, the rest of us will learn how to take photographs that don’t just document life but celebrate it.

No fancy equipment required. Just hundreds of simple, inspiring ideas and lessons—each one illustrated with a photograph—organized around the six essential principles of seeing like a photographer. (Here’s one: Shoot the Moment, Not the Subject.)

Here’s why to shoot in natural light—always. The fun of putting babies in surprising places. How to get intimate with food. Using a dramatic sky as your backdrop. The benefit of learning to know the light in every room of your house. Shooting hands or feet instead of faces. How to move past the “I was here” postcard effect. How to catch the in-between moments. Because in the end, it’s about living the moment, shooting the moment—and being in the moment forever.

Meilleures citations

  • Yet I also see that many people are shooting the surface of things, the way things look. The risk is that by staying on the surface, and using easy digital effects to make our pictures pretty, we risk trivializing how we really experience our lives.

  • I came to believe—and I still believe—that this sort of creativity is inside everyone, and if you can find the connection between feeling and seeing, you can take a great photograph.

  • When I shoot, I am totally into being there, into appreciating who these people around me are, into celebrating who they are, into really enjoying myself and expressing that.

  • Travel tends to make all of us hyper-aware of details like this; when we are away from the distractions of our lives, we come awake to the small moments.

  • So many things happen daily that are emotional and loving, and they are among the things I am most interested in as a person—and therefore as a photographer.

  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed this book. George Lange's photographs have a real warmth to them. Each picture is captioned with a short description of his process or view point. These really made me rethink how I take pictures of friends and family. Most of his tips are about interesting ways to photograph people whom you know as opposed to landscapes or objects or strangers. Great advice with a minimum of techno speak.

    In a quest to learn more about making good photos, I bought this book. It’s all about taking photos of people, and the author is all about spontaneity. It’s refreshing to hear his stories and read his tips; the author keeps pulling us back to having fun while taking photos, to bringing us back to the moment of snapping pictures. And that’s something I can remind myself to do. Sharing all the author’s amazing photos and reading his tips is worthwhile, too.
