Amazon Exclusive: Interview with Award-Winning Photographer Harold Davis

We hear you’ve written some new digital photography titles. What’s the story behind these books?
Wiley Publishing is releasing three new books of mine, Creative Close-Ups: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques , Creative Night: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques , and Creative Composition: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques . My idea with these books was to help people become better photographers by presenting the subject of digital photography in a different way.

What’s different about your approach?
They say that cameras don’t take photos, people do. It’s really true. Someone with a great eye can take masterful photos with an inexpensive camera. Therefore, it is important to know something about photo technique, but the really amazing thing is that we can conceptualize and come up with these bits and bytes that make up a photo—and they can be meaningful to people. I try to help people come up with images that are relevant and meaningful. Cameras and hardware are just tools.

What’s with all the photos in these books?
Well, everyone likes to look at striking images, so one thing my photos do in these books is get people’s attention. However, the photos play another role as well. Each photo in my book is accompanied by the story of how the photo was made and the technical data related to the photo. That way, if you’re not ready to dive into the text itself, you can learn a lot just by browsing the photos.

My feeling is that you truly do learn about photography by looking at photos. It’s much more important to look at images you admire and try and figure out why you like them than it is to read about photography. The photos in these books are baked into the DNA of the teaching strategy. By browsing through the pages, someone can learn a great deal and have an enjoyable visual experience at the same time.

What’s the most important thing that readers can get out of your new books?
I want to inspire readers to be the most creative and best photographers they can be. If you pick up one of my books, I hope you can make use of the technical content and see how the photos relate to some of your own work. The most important thing, however, is to take the ideas in the book, get out there, and do some really peddle-to-the-metal creative photography.

From the Back Cover:

For many photographers, the first time focusing a macro lens on the world of the tiny is a revelation. The closer you get, the more you see.

Technically, close-up photography is demanding. But with the right information, you'll be able to unleash your creative potential in the world of close-ups.

Creative Close-Ups: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques explains the equipment you need to succeed with macro photography, including macro lenses, extension tubes, and tripods.

Photographic techniques are explained in simple terms. Learn to see up close, to use aperture and exposure in new ways, and to capture what you see in your imagination.

Lavishly illustrated with the author's own close-up images, each photo provides information about how to make creative close-up photos. This book provides both inspiration and technical instruction. You may never photograph the world in quite the same way again!

  • Explore the world of close-up photography
  • Learn macro photography techniques
  • Extend focus with stacked images
  • Create transparent and impressionistic images of flowers
  • Find out how to use aperture creatively in your close-ups
  • Make your own still life studio
