How to Be a Dad

Oscar Duke
Authors:
Oscar Duke

In this first doctor-written guide to fatherhood, Oscar combines the medical knowledge of a healthcare professional with his real-life experience to provide an honest, humorous and engaging book that takes you on a journey from baby scans to birthing pools and beyond. Written chronologically, the structure takes shape from body parts - chapters include the Womb (fertility to foetus), Stomach (filling it, hiding it and stopping it vomiting), Genes (the science of screening) and Vagina (different ways to get a baby out). Each chapter has a 'Dr' section containing easily digestible facts and clarifying daunting medical jargon that surrounds pregnancy and childbirth, and a 'Dad' section that contains more emotional and anecdotal tales from Oscar's male patients as well as his own experience. Also included are tips from mums, describing how they are feeling throughout pregnancy and advice on what dads can do (and not do!) to help ease the burden. 'I hope that as a doctor and a new dad, I will go some way towards answering those 'man questions' that never quite make it to the pub, locker-room, water cooler or any other locations where men might find themselves having meaningful chats with another guy. Think of this as a papery man-hug in what is a potentially treacherous world of terminology, hormones, social change, sleep deprivation and finally dirty nappies with tiny feet attached.'

The Photographer's Eye Remastered 10th Anniversary

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

With a completely refreshed look to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Michael Freeman's iconic bestseller, The Photographer's Eye, has never looked better.Design is the single most important factor in creating a successful photograph. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition has always been one of the key skills in making photographs. Of course, digital photography has brought a new, exciting aspect to design first because the instant feedback from a digital camera allows immediate appraisal and improvement; and second because image-editing tools make it possible to alter and enhance the design after the shutter has been pressed. This has had a profound effect on the way digital photographers take pictures. The Photographers Eye shows how anyone can develop an eye for seeing great digital photos. The book explores all the traditional approaches to composition and design, but crucially, it also addresses the new digital technique of shooting in the knowledge that a picture will later be edited, manipulated, or montaged to result in a final image that may be very different from the one seen in the viewfinder.
