Expressive Photography

All of us have, at one time or another, taken "the perfect picture" - the one that not only works technically, but which exactly captures the emotion of the moment, evoking delight and wonder in the reactions of all who see it. Frustratingly, though, we all have many more of the "nearly" shots - when you were in the right place, at the right time, but didn't get the mood you were going for. This book will help you capture the emotion of your subject, and the feeling of that moment. Visually stunning, and unique in its collaborative approach, 'Expressive Photography' brings the spirit of the immensely popular Shutter Sisters website to the printed page through the voice and photography of its founding members.

    Endangered

    By George C. Mcgavin
    Authors:
    George C. Mcgavin
    There have been at least five great extinctions in the history of the Earth where up to 95 per cent of all species have been wiped out in one event. The causes are attributed to massive volcanic eruptions, disastrous meteor strikes, and rapid climatic change. "Endangered" describes these events, but its main thesis is reserved for the potential sixth great extinction, attributable to mankind. Beautifully illustrated, "Endangered" looks at those species which have become extinct or which are so severely threatened that they soon will if we do not apply more international rational restraint upon the way we exploit our environment. However, this is more than a scare-mongering book designed to exploit guilt and anxiety, it is a celebration of the variety of nature and hopeful guide to a future world, safe for all species. Unimpeachable authorship, extraordinary photography and compelling yet objective text make this book essential to any Natural History reading list in the twenty-first century. "Endangered" is seeking endorsement from the world wildlife fund for nature.
