Product Description
Joe McNally, one of the world’s top pro digital photographers, whose celebrated work has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, Time, and National Geographic (to name a few), breaks new ground by doing something no photography book has ever done—blending the rich, stunning images and elegant layout of a coffee-table book with the invaluable training, no-nonsense insights, and photography secrets usually found only in those rare, best-of-breed educational books.

When Joe’s not on assignment for the biggest-name magazines and Fortune 500 clients, he’s in the classroom teaching location lighting, environmental portraiture, and how to “get the shot” at workshops around the world. These on-location workshops are usually reserved for a handful of photographers each year, but now you can learn the same techniques that Joe shares in his seminars and lectures in a book that brings Joe’s sessions to life.

What makes the book so unique is the “triangle of learning” where (1) Joe distills the concept down to one brief sentence. It usually starts with something like, “An editor at National Geographic once told me…” and then he shares one of those hard-earned tricks of the trade that you only get from spending a lifetime behind the lens. Then, (2) on the facing page is one of Joe’s brilliant images that perfectly illustrates the technique (you’ll recognize many of his photos from magazine covers). And (3) you get the inside story of how that shot was taken, including which equipment he used (lens, f/stop, lighting, accessories, etc.), along with the challenges that type of project brings, and how to set up a shot like that of your own.

This book also gives you something more. It inspires. It challenges. It informs. But perhaps most importantly, it will help you understand photography and the art of making great photos at a level you never thought possible. This book is packed with those “Ah ha!” moments—those clever insights that make it all come together for you. It brings you that wonderful moment when it suddenly all makes sense—that “moment it clicks.”

    Definitely a fiasco of a book. The premise is interesting and the writing is even funny at times, specially all the spelling mistakes. However, 90% of the photography is nothing special. Actually, if those pictures came out of my camera, I would certainly have deleted most of them. This is not what I expected from an award-winning photographer.

    The advice in the book is very repetitive (I swear, he explains at least 5 times what a honeycomb filter looks like) and often he simply just keeps stating the obvious. When it is not obvious, it is just beyond the reach of most photographers in terms of setup. Some picture were taking with a dozen strobes with assistants holding reflects, sandbags and a different colored gel on each light!

    If you own a boatload of lighting equipment, this book is for you. It will show you how to use all kinds of strobes and softboxes and other major lighting assets. If not, there are about 4 or 5 pages that will fit your equipment profile. If you shoot existing light, save your money.

    I was disappointed in this book. For me it is a book for professionals with a great deal of expensive equipment. The photos were outstanding, but I saw very little for the amateur photography. It was way over my head. Prior to and after purchasing the book, I read some outstanding reviews. After I bought and read the book, I do not agree with most of the favorable comments.
