The Zen of Photo: How to Take Pictures with Your Mind's Camera $10.95
Photography is more than f-stops, shutter speeds, and camera choices. Photography and this book teaches how you learn from what you see and experience.The Zen of Photography: How to Take Pictures with your Mind's Camera is a collection of 100 sayings that the author has written over a 25-year period. By merging the study of photography and the study of Zen philosophy, one learns to use a camera as a way of connecting more fully with the world. Consequently, a camera is not used as a wall between what is seen and what is experienced, but is a tool that serves to unite the photographer with what is being experienced through the photographic process. This book teaches that photography is much more than f-stops, shutter speed and aperture settings, film choices, and camera purchases. If photography were merely a technical operation, robots could take great pictures. Learning is about readiness. Because you are a loving, thinking person who found this book, you want to be inspired to elevate your picture taking to a level in which you learn from the moments you observe and teach others to be moved by those moments. This book is ready for you. Author Bio: Paul Martin Lester is a Professor of Communications at California State University, Fullerton. After obtaining an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin and employment as a photojournalist for The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, Lester received a Master's Degree from the University of Minnesota and a Ph.D. from Indiana University in mass communications.

Lickshot: A Photo Scrapbook $36.13
"Cut up, collaged, crayoned, and tagged with markers, the photos feel less like fixed, flattened documents than little time bombs about to explode." ?Vince Aletti, Village Voice It's no wonder our 2003 Ben Watts monograph, Big Up, sold out before it was even released. Watts is internationally known for bringing the frenetic verve of street photography to his diverse body of work. Whether on location for Vanity Fair, Elle, Rolling Stone, or Nike, Watts's camera captures a feeling of barely contained, youthful energy and sucks the raw essence out of his subjects. Watts has an uncanny ability to simultaneously put his subjects at ease and amp up their adrenaline. His working process has as much in common with the call-and-response patterns in hip-hop music as it does with the traditional conventions of photography. He is always ready to swap his professional camera for a Polaroid so that his subjects can see the photos immediately and tag them with shout-outs or trash talk. His photo shoots are like block parties where his subjects drop their guard to reveal an honest sense of self-pride, and love of life. Lickshot is Ben Watts's highly personalized scrapbook and travel diary. A triumph of lo-fi style, its pages are a delirious pastiche of gritty photographs, wonky Polaroids, and hand-scrawled graffiti, held together by slashes of colored tape. Its contents reflect the incredible variety of Watts's photographic subjects?from high school ice skaters, Brooklyn biker gangs, and lounging sunbathers to world-famous actors, supermodels, and today's hottest musicians. Lickshot includes photos of Heath Ledger, Benicio del Toro, Tobey Maguire, Rachel Weisz, Guy Pearce, Adrien Brody, Bruce Springsteen, Lil Wayne, Lou Reed, Jay-Z, Coldplay, TI, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Andr? 3000, BB King, Mary J. Blige, and Ben Harper. An interview with Watts by Vanity Fair editor Ingrid Sischy explores Watts's background and creative influences.

It's a Snap!: George Eastman's First Photo $14.58
In 1877 in Rochester, New York, George Eastman couldn't understand why picture-taking was so difficult. Having left school at fourteen to support his mother and two sisters, George decided to find out by making photography his hobby. He packed up glass plates, a plate holder, a tent, a heavy tripod, a thick piece of black cloth, a water jug, and chemicals and set off to take his first photograph. George realized that not many people could own a camera ? they were too expensive and the size of today's microwave ovens! But how could he make picture-taking easier? Eventually, George created dry plates, and they were such a success that he opened his own dry-plate company in 1881. But this was only the beginning ? George went on to invent film and the Brownie camera. The rest is history.Monica Kulling's spunky, playful text is beautifully complemented by the stunning pen-and-ink with watercolor illustrations of artist Bill Slavin. It's a Snap! George Eastman's First Photo introduces a new series for Tundra ? the Great Idea Series ? a must-have for schools, libraries, and parents alike.

Photo du Jour: A Picture-a-Day Journey through the First Year of the N $27.00
From the jungles of Vietnam, where he shot a photo of "the loneliness and desolation of war" that won a Pulitzer Prize, to the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, David Hume Kennerly witnessed and photographed most of the history-making moments of the last third of the twentieth century. As the millennium turned and he set out to cover his eighth presidential campaign, however, the veteran photojournalist sensed something missing. In his words, "I had the uneasy feeling that I couldn't focus only on the story at hand while bypassing the texture of life that surrounds it. . . . This time I wouldn't speed across that covered bridge to get to the big event on the other side, but instead I would slow down a bit, maybe even pause to take a picture of the bridge." Photo du Jour is Kennerly's visual diary of "the texture of life" at the start of the twenty-first century. As he traveled more than a quarter of a million miles across thirty-eight states and seven countries, Kennerly took a picture every single day in the year 2000, using just one camera and one lens. Some offer candid, behind-the-scenes glimpses of the men who would be president--John McCain, Al Gore, and George W. Bush. Most of the photographs, though, seek to capture not the big, historic moments but rather the ordinary, even whimsical moments when the essence of a person or a place reveals itself to the observer who takes the time and has the heart to really see. Travel with him from Beijing to Boston, Moose to Miami, and Whynot to Weimea in Photo du Jour, and you'll quickly discover that David Kennerly is just such an observer.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Calvin Littlejohn: Portrait of a Community in Black and White $23.19 In 1934, the year Calvin Littlejohn came to Fort Worth, the city was a sleepy little burg. This was the Jim Crow era, when mainstream newspapers wouldn't publish pictures of black citizens and white photographers wouldn't take pictures in black schools.In Fort Worth, Littlejohn began what would become a lifelong career of documenting the black community. And there would be nothing remotely related to the white culture's depictions of Amos 'n' Andy or black kids grinning over a slice of watermelon in Littlejohn's portrayal of his adopted home and the people he came to appreciate and love. Littlejohn's natural aptitude for drawing had been honed by correspondence courses in graphic design and a stint in a photo shop where he learned about the camera, lighting, and the use of shadows.When Littlejohn was assigned to be the official photographer at IM Terrell?the city's only black high school at the time?his professional career was launched.Unlike many segregated cities, where blacks lived only in one section, blacks in Cowtown lived in every quadrant of the city. There was a thriving black business district, with hotels, restaurants, a movie theater, a bank, and a major hospital, pharmacy, and nursing school. And of course, there were the schools and churches. All would eventually be seen through Littlejohn's lens.Although he never set out to be the documentarian of Fort Worth's black community, he did what he set out to do: to capture the best of a community, focusing on its good times.This book features more than 150 shots Littlejohn captured over the course of his career.

What does it mean that we are aware, and how do we even define awareness? What does it truly mean to be alive in every moment?Short Stories of the Transparent Mind personally and directly explores the nature of perception. As humans, we often layer our preconceived notions and ideas on top of an existent reality not actually governed by our imposed systems of understanding. Short Stories uses visual experimentation to expose the naked moments that are there before we start to define, control, and obscure our experience with our interpretations. The stories draw attention to what we perceive before our dualistic mind asserts itself?before the judgmental tendencies of good or bad, right or wrong, begin to appear.The work in Short Stories of theTransparent Mind was selected as a candidate for the Prix Voies Off 2009 in Arles, France, and an exhibition of the work will be shown during Mois de la Photo in Paris in 2010.?Eneroth's spiritual practice, and his camera's trained inner eye, allow him to peel back the layers of the self and the external surfaces that obstruct our inner vision.

On February 23, 1945, as the battle for the Japanese island stronghold of Iwo Jima raged below, Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal's camera captured six troops raising the Stars and Stripes on Mt.

This is the story of the ten days Rosenthal spent on Iwo Jima-and how his Pulitzer-winning picture came to be. Containing over 120 combat photographs- including shots of the flag-raising by other photographers-quotes from survivors, newspapers and magazines, battle reports and Medal of Honor citations, here is a grunt's eye view of the bloodiest battle in US Marine Corps history. It also recounts "the photograph's" enduring legacy in popular culture, and reveals the fates of the flag raisers- men who became a fixture in their country's history.

The photographs are remarkable for their quality and diversity, and stand today as one of the county's most valuable historical resources.Like all professional photographers of their time, Stell and Kilgore did portrait work, weddings, and commercial photography; however, they took their art several steps beyond the usual. In a time when most families did not own a camera, the two men photographed children's birthday parties, Easter egg hunts, and family reunions. Rather than spending Christmas morning with their own families, they spent that time going to the homes of families throughout the community, gathered around the Christmas tree opening gifts. Perhaps even more important from a historical standpoint was their coverage of breaking news events. Their files contain hundreds of photos of automobile accidents and train wrecks, many taken for the local newspaper and others for various insurance companies and lawyers. Stell and Kilgore also served as the forensic photographers for local law enforcement agencies, and photographed in great detail the crime scene of murders in Barrow County for decades.

This book fills the gaps left by others. The late Master Masatoshi Nakayama, chief instructor of the Japan Karate Association, left this book as a testament. It reveals his great experience as a karate competitor and teacher, describing and illustrating in detail all the correct movements involved in the particular block, punch, or kick you want to perfect, as well as instructions?on combining blocking techniques with decisive counterattacks. Also included is a glossary of all Japanese karate terms and a guide to their pronunciation. Because of the lightning speed of karate techniques, normal camera work often fails to record the action accurately. For this reason, many of the photo sequences found in Dynamic Karate were taken using a stroboscope with a flash time of 1/10000 of a second, enabling you to follow each movement as it is actually performed.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Do Not Give Way to Evil $26.06 The Bronx had almost stopped burning by 1979. The intensity and extent of the devastation permeated the landscape. It was an awesome mess, not just another neighborhood, but another realm, visible but incomprehensible. The Bronx came undone in a confluence of unfortunate circumstances: the life cycle of community, rampant city planning, economic change, racism, poverty, failed hopes, drugs, crime, abandonment, counterproductive government response. It was destroyed for profit. The entire story has yet to be told. A friend suggested to photographer Lisa Kahane that she record it for a time when it would be a memory, which was then impossible to imagine. The ruins of the immediate past overwhelmed any idea of a future. Ironically, Kahane had a good time in the Bronx. People smiled and said, ?Throw me a photo!? Few objected to having their picture taken and no one tried to take her camera away. They wanted their story told. Any discomfort the camera might inflict was nothing compared to what they'd endured. The result, Do No Give Way to Evil: Photographs of the South Bronx, 1979?1987, is an extraordinary document of devastation and rejuvenation, as Kahane records the first seeds of rebuilding. Throughout this desolate world, the people live alongside abandoned buildings and debris-strewn lots, carrying on their business with civic pride. Though the buildings may be ghosts of their former selves, the spirit of the people holds strong. With an essay by Peter Frank and text by the photographer, John Ahearn, CRASH, DAZE, Jane Dickson, Stefan Eins, John Fekner, Joe Lewis, SHARP, Rigoberto Torres.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com McQueen $9.99 Steve McQueen found it hard to balance worldwide fame with a desperate need for solitude. Through performances that were effortless yet powerful, he connected with the people who saw him on stage, on television, in movie houses, and on magazine covers anywhere on earth. Sometimes more comfortable racing a motorcycle than in front of a camera, twice at the height of his stardom he took more than a year off from movies. Despite this, and despite dying young, he left an indelible imprint. Images, his own words, and the words of others chronicle his rise from juvenile delinquent to the highest paid star in Hollywood. The Hollywood Icon series: People talk about Hollywood glamour, about studios that had more stars than there are in heaven, about actors who weren't actors but were icons. Other people talk about these things, Taschen shows you. Hollywood Icons is a series of photo books that feature the most famous movie icons in the history of cinema. These 192-page books are visual biographies of the stars. For each title, series editor Paul Duncan has painstaking selected approximately 150 high quality enigmatic and sumptuous portraits, colorful posters and lobby cards, rare film stills, and previously unpublished candid photos showing the stars as they really are. These images are accompanied by concise introductory essays by leading film writers; each book also includes a chronology, a filmography, and a bibliography, and is peppered with apposite quotes from the movies and from life. Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Andy Warhol: Red Books $64.89 The Polaroid camera combined two of Andy Warhol's obsessions ? the disposible nature of modern consumerism and the photograph as a ready-made. He was an inveterate and relentless user of Polaroid cameras and during the 1970s he made thousands of instant photographs. The near-instant nature of the Polaroid process meant that the photographs could be passed around, admired, sometimes written on moments after the event had been captured. It was a useful tool for a somewhat shy character, one that encouraged interaction and collaboration. In addition to his many portrait commissions, Warhol's Polaroids were used for such Grammy-winning designs as the Rolling Stones' "Sticky Fingers" album cover in 1971.Between 1970 and 1976 Warhol established a rigorous system of cataloguing. He would take home the Polaroids, edit and sequence them and then enter them in individual red Holson Polaroid albums. These albums, with Warhol's original sequence and themes, have remained intact.Red Books is a cardboard box containing 11 of the Holson photo albums of Polaroids. These thoughtfully-ordered small albums, selected and sequenced by Warhol himself, tend to cover one event, be it a weekend in Montauk with the Kennedy and Radziwill kids, a portrait sitting with Palomo Picasso or Bridgid Berlin and Larry Rivers staging an impromptu 'performance' at the Factory, and there is a freshness and intimacy that one does not usually associate with the 'cool and detached' Andy Warhol. A separate black book contains a text by Fran?ois-Marie Banier explaining the significance of these albums within Warhol's oeuvre and how they act as a diary of his work and offer unrivalled insight into his working procedures.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Murder Has a Public Face: Crime and Punishment in the Speed Graphic Er $23.96 In his popular Strange Days, Dangerous Nights, Larry Millett delivered Weegee-style images of midwestern noir from the photo files of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. He returns with a focus on the "dangerous"-murder cases from the forties and fifties, memorialized in telling photographs. There is Arthur DeZeler, accused of sinking his wife's body in a northern lake. Laura Miller, who ran for help after gunshots killed her married lover. Dentist Arnold Axilrod, who was arrested when the lifeless body of one of his patients was discovered in a Minneapolis alley. And, finally, Arnold Larson, the personable salesman with a winning smile and a bad temper. Millett traces these four sensational crimes from the moment the victim was found, through the search for the killer, to the court trial and resulting imprisonment or acquittal. All are copiously illustrated with shots from the bulky Speed Graphic camera, views from an era when photographers enjoyed unrestricted access to police matters ranging from found bodies to jail cells. The images dramatically evoke crimes of passion now more than a half-century old, a thrilling immersion into Minnesota noir. Larry Millett is the author of numerous books, including Strange Days, Dangerous Nights and the AIA Guide to the Twin Cities (MHS Press). William Swanson is the author of Dial M: The Murder of Carol Thompson (MHS Press).

Still images are so powerful that they can easily pass for actual scenes from the movies they represent?rather than separately posed, lighted, and photographed shots that may not even find their way into the finished film. This classic study traces the origin of stills photography during the silent era and the early development of the star system, to the rise of the giant studios in the 1930s and their eventual decline. Finler focuses on the photographers, on the stars they photographed, and on many key films and filmmakers. Hollywood Movie Stills is illustrated by hundreds of rare and unusual stills from the author's own collection, including not only portraits and scene stills but production shots, behind-the-scenes photos, poster art, calendar art, leg shots, photo collages, and trick shots. There are also photos showing the stars' private lives and special events in Hollywood, all produced in vast numbers by the great studios in their heyday. Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Looking For Summer $15.24 New in PaperbackWorld-renowned photographer Jim Brandenburg once again uses the hidden world of his beloved northern woods as the setting for a daunting artistic challenge. From June 21st to September 21st, Jim spent each day capturing the spirit of the Northern Minnesota wilderness through his camera. At the end of each day, Jim edited the day's shoot and picked the best shot to represent that day's adventure. The resulting book literally teems with life. It is filled with the color and action of a pristine natural world during its most energetic season of the year. It features all of Brandenburg's favorite subjects: wildlife and wildflowers, water and wide-open skies. As always, Jim brings the photojournalist's instinct for the critical moment to each photo. His is a style quite unlike any other nature or wildlife photographer. As was true of the best-selling Chased by the Light, Jim's exercise in photographic technique became something much, much more: a study in human perspective and vision. For, in addition to being a world-class photographer, Jim Brandenburg is a philosopher/poet. As any reader of his work knows, Jim's influences are broad: native American mythology; classical Japanese culture; and Zen Buddhism. Most of all, though, Jim has lived his life as a dedicated student of the natural world-of earth and sky, of water and wind, of plants and creatures. It is in the cyclical rhythms of the natural world that Jim discovers serenity and the meaning of life, and these lessons are conveyed brilliantly through the images and words married together in this book.Jim Brandenburg's photographs have won many national and international awards, and hiswork was included in "Life Magazine Collector's edition: The World's Best Photographs 1980-1990." Brandenburg was twice named "Magazine Photographer of the Year" by the National Press Photographer's Association (NPPA). In 1991, he was the recipient of the World Achievement Award from the United Nations Environmental Programme in Stockholm, Sweden. Brandenburg's work has appeared in eight other books.

Sometimes he can find in their faces and in the way they hold themselves or the way they perform before the camera, the light trace of their story. Following just that path, acclaimed novelist Frederick Reuss has created a love story of historic proportions. Mohr: A Novel is about a man and wife whose life together is marked irreparably by a deeply troubled and world-testing era. With the sort of enthralling narrative step that always marks his work, Reuss allows their story to rise from a cache of photographs he uncovered in Germany--photographs from the 1920s and '30s of the exiled Jewish playwright and novelist Max Mohr; K?the, the beautiful wife he left behind; and Eva, their daughter, who would live through it all but would never really understand what had happened. The interplay between Reuss's revealing prose and the real faces in nearly 50 photographs offers a reading experience that may be unprecedented in novels.From the first paragraph and that first creased image, which Eva may have taken, of the Mohrs at their table in Germany just before Max walked away from their lives, this beautiful and powerful novel works as deeply on the reader as a family photo album.

As one of the last remaining journalists in Somalia, hehears that a Blackhawk has been shot down over Mogadishu,and that a mob is dragging the body of a US soldier through the streets.

But as the accolades pour in and Watson travels to other troubled areas of the world, he can think only of the damage he has done?to Sergeant Cleveland's family, whose last image of their son would always be the battered, dusty corpse Watson had photographed; and, he fears, to the spread of terrorism, with the worldwide spectacle his photo created from that barbarity.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Basic Critical Theory for Photographers $30.91 Basic Critical Theory for Photographers generates discussion, thought and practical assignments around key debates in photography. Ashley la Grange avoids the trap of an elitist and purely academic approach to critical theory, taking a dual theoretical and practical approach when considering the issues. Key critical theory texts (such as Sontag's 'On Photography' and Barthes' 'Camera Lucida') are clarified and shortened. La Grange avoids editorilising, letting the arguments develop as the writers had intended; it is the assignments which call into question each writer's approach and promote debate.This is the ideal book if you want to understand key debates in photography and have a ready-made structure within which to discuss and explore these fascinating issues. It is accessible to students, from high school to university level, but will also be of interest to the general reader and to those photographers whose training and work is concerned with the practical aspects of photography.Also includes invaluable glossary of terms and a substantial index that incorporates the classic texts, helping you to navigate your way through these un-indexed works. The book also contains useful information on photo-mechanical processes, explaining how a photograph can appear very differently, and as a result be interpreted in a range of ways, in a variety of books.Understand the gulf between practical photography and critical theory Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Japanscapes: Three Cameras, Three Journeys $25.63 JAPAN IS A PLACE OF BEAUTY AND MYSTERY.It is also a land where the modern and the ancestral combine in endlessly fascinating patterns. Through the creative camera work of three consummate photographers, Japanscapes sets out to explore this country of startling contrasts.American Ben Simmons captures the postmodern Blade Runner chic of urban Japan in a way rarely encountered on color film. With an uncanny eye for urban scenery and the fleeting shutter chance, Simmons' catches the colors of Japan's cities, the vibrancy of its architectural monuments, and the candid episodes in its citizen's lives.British native Johnny Hymas gently unveils the understated elegance of the Japanese countryside. His three-decade love affair with the landscapes of rural Japan has led him to nearly every corner of the country. He portrays nature at its serene and dignified best (the silvery waters of the East China Sea, long-legged herons fishing at daybreak), and his unstinting affection for the ways of the farmers and fishermen as they work the heartlands and coastal waters is apparent in every shot.Slovenian Gorazd Vilhar focuses on Japan's spiritual legacy. He has sought out the sites of centuries-old practices, often gaining entrance to rituals and celebrations few outsiders have a chance to see. His images capture the measured rhythms of Shinto and Buddhist customs and record the artful refinement of Zen gardens, traditional architecture, geisha in the Gion, and other aspects of old Japan the inquisitive visitor may still glimpse today.Complementing this grand photo-journey is the informed commentary of three expatriate writers. Noted architect and artist Azby Brown contributes a penetrating introduction on the art of unearthing the real Japan. Reporter Lucille M. Craft provides a lyrical look at city life today, and author Charlotte Anderson rounds out the volume with a captivating overview of Japan's cultural traditions. In its images and insights, Japanscapes offers a refreshingly new take on why Japan remains one of the most intriguing countries in the world. Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com I Am My Family: Photographic Memories and Fictions $30.70 Old family photo albums are fascinating. If you're lucky enough to own one, you've probably spent hours poring over half-faded black-and-white portraits of your ancestors, searching for similarities in their facial features and wondering what their lives might have been. Unfortunately, not every family has such easy access to their own history. Photographer Rafael Goldchain's Polish-Jewish ancestors emigrated to South America in the 1930s, and many others perished in Poland during the Nazi regime. Also lost in the turmoil of war and emigration were most of the portraits of his extended family. When Goldchain became a parent himself, he decided to make up for this lack of evidence and recreate the lost generations of the past, in the present. Rafael Goldchain's I Am My Family is a family album of traditional portrait photographs with an unconventional twist: the only subject is Goldchain himself. In an elaborate process involving genealogical research, the use of makeup, hair styling, costume, and props, Goldchain transforms himself into his ancestors and captures their personifications with the camera. Taking some liberties with historical accuracy, Goldchain has assembled a fascinating cast of characters: from his short-story-writing grandfather, to his great-aunts Pola and Fela, to the Rabbi Gur's nephew in wedding dress, Goldchain reinvents himself over and over again. These beautifully reproduced self-portraits trace the evolution of Jewish culture from tradition to modernity and invite us to engage the history of a family decimated and scattered by the traumatic events of the 20th century. Featuring an insightful essay by curator Martha Langford, the portraits are complemented by a selection of the archival images on which they are based as well as selections from the artist's handwritten sketchbooks.

Capturing the instant for others. The 'decisive moment.' Photojournalism." ?Brian HortonNoted AP photographer and photo editor, Brian Horton takes you beyond the basics of lenses and exposure times to offer a rare, insider's perspective on the art and craft of photojournalism. While he does provide useful instruction on technical considerations such as picking the right angle and lighting a situation, his main concern is with the less tangible, wholly indispensable elements of content, style, and the creative process. Using more than 100 photographs from the AP archives to illustrate his points, Horton analyzes what constitutes great news photos of every type, including portraits, tableaus, sports shots, battlefield scenes, and more. He offers unique insights into composition and style, along with invaluable advice on how to develop a style of your own. And, in a chapter new to this edition, he explores the pros and cons of digital photography and the latest developments in digital development and processing.In writing The Associated Press Guide to Photojournalism, Brian Horton conducted extensive interviews with other award-winning photojournalists, whose voices echo throughout the book, sharing unforgettable war stories and hard-won insights into what it takes to seek and find memorable news photographs. Brian Horton is Senior Photo Editor for the Associated Press. He is also AP's LaserPhoto network director. An AP veteran of 30 years' experience, he has covered the World Series, the Super Bowl, the Triple Crown, the Winter and Summer Olympics, World Cup soccer, the Indianapolis 500, the NBA Finals, and other major sports events.

As Barry Antelope says, they write the songs. Not only that, they usually perform the songs better than anyone else. This should not be terribly surprising. The songs, after all, have been created by hand and heart from the ragged-but-righteous, weather-beaten fabric of the singer-songwriter's soul. Needless to say, these kinds of critters are often lonesome, ornery, and mean, not to mention almost impossible to confront or to capture. It is no small achievement that Steve Harris was able to corral so many of them into this book."--Kinky Friedman, from the forewordWhether they headline major music festivals or play in small, nearly empty clubs, singer-songwriters are among Texas's most authentic and enduring musicians. Steve Harris has been photographing these artists for many years, creating an unsurpassed photo gallery of both well-known and emerging Texas singer-songwriters. In Texas Troubadours, he showcases over fifty songwriters with evocative black-and-white photographs accompanied by original quotes in the musicians' own handwriting, which allow viewers to engage with the musicians both visually and personally. Texas Troubadours is a virtual who's who of singer-songwriters. The book includes such nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians as Kris Kristofferson, Alejandro Escovedo, Guy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, along with singer-songwriters whose followings are growing. In his introduction, Steve Harris describes how the losses ofTownes Van Zandt and Doug Sahm inspired him to document Texas singer-songwriters and how the book developed as he took his 4 x 5 camera and notebook wherever a singer-songwriter was willing to be photographed. The portraits in Texas Troubadours are as genuine and soulful as the musicians themselves. When you look into these faces, you see lives that, as Kinky Friedman says, have known "the road, the cheap motels, the beer joints and half-filled houses, the days when our autographs were bouncing, the long nights of pain and beauty beyond words and music." Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Sites of Impact: Meteorite Craters Around the World $42.92 The Earth is pockmarked with the evidence of ancient collisions: huge craters blasted into its surface by thousands of pounds of meteorite fragments traveling at approximately 50000 miles per hour. Ranging in age from those formed in this century to billion-year-old specimens, the Earth's meteorite craters are eroding at a rapid pace. The best-preserved impact sites are often difficult to access buried under ice, obscured by foliage, or baking in desert climes. These desolate landscapes are connected to another place outside of our world, and for photographer Stan Gaz they are sites of pilgrimage steps in a journey begun as a curious young boy accompanying his father on geological expeditions, and culminating in a six-year journey traveling the globe in search of these sites, much of that time spent leaning his twenty-pound, handheld Hasselblad medium format camera out of an open-sided helicopter. The eighty-five astounding black-and-white photographs collected in Sites of Impact transcend the purely documentary and intersect the sublime. They are large-scale, aerial landscapes infused with a child's sense of wonder and an adult's preoccupation with the fragility of life. Like the sites themselves natural monuments to explosive destruction and concomitant creation the images speak to the vulnerability of the Earth and the significance of our place in the universe. In addition to photographs of the craters and their surrounding landscapes, Gaz includes photographs of actual meteorites and of his own carefully crafted sculptures that recreate their often dynamic form and mimic their specific mineral content. Anecdotal passages about the artist's experiences photographing each crater are interspersed with scientific data regarding the crater's location, age, structure, and condition. An essay by Earth scientist Christian Koeberl summarizes what we know and do not know about meteorite impact events, while an essay by photo historian Robert Silberman places Gaz's pictures within the traditions of landscape photography and the aesthetics of the sublime.

His images, published in Life magazine, brought the war home, scorching the consciousness of the public and inspiring much of the anti-war sentiment that convulsed American society in the 1960s. To see these photo essays today, gathered in one volume and augmented by unpublished images from the Burrows archive, is to experience (or to relive), with extraordinary immediacy, both the war itself and the effect and range of Larry Burrows's gifts?his courage: to shoot ?The Air War,? he strapped himself and his camera to the open doorway of a plane . . . his reporter's instinct: accompanying the mission of the helicopter Yankee Papa 13, he captured the transformation of a young marine crew chief experiencing the death of fellow marines . . . and his compassion: in ?Operation Prairie? and ?A Degree of Disillusion? he published profoundly affecting images of exhausted, bloodied troops and maimed Vietnamese children, both wounded, physically and psychologically, by the ever-escalating war.The photographs Larry Burrows took in Vietnam, magnificently reproduced in this volume, are brutal, poignant, and utterly truthful, a stunning example of photojournalism that recorded history and achieved the level of great art. Indeed, in retrospect, says David Halberstam in his moving introduction, ?Larry Burrows was as muchhistorian as photographer and artist. Because of his work, generations born long after he died will be able to witness and understand and feel the terrible events he recorded. This book is his last testament.?With 150 illustrations, 100 in full colorAuthor Biography: Larry Burrows (1926?71) was born in England, went to work at the age of sixteen in the photo lab of Life's London bureau, and rose to become one of the twentieth century's greatest photojournalists.David Halberstam, Burrows's close friend and comrade in Vietnam, is the author of many books, most recently War in a Time of Peace: Bush, Clinton, and the Generals.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Nude In Paradise $81.99 Nude in Paradise is photographer and author Mark Laurie's photo-diary of a day spent with beautiful Model Darla Bloome in Paradise Islands, Bahamas. Except for a brief introduction telling about the day he is about to lead you on, this book is just photographs, stunning photographs. Every page presents amazing images, incredible post work and the finest example of imaginative layout that I have ever had the pleasure to experience. Mark Laurie is a Master of Photographic Arts as attested by the Professional Photographers of Canada but, more important, as demonstrated by his work. He has an impressive collection of Accreditations and major photography awards that prove he knows what he is doing behind the camera, in front of the camera and in the postproduction room. As I studied Nude in Paradise it became apparent Mark's imagination and creativity also exist at the Master level. He was clearly the best person to produce this book. Each page is a work of art and testament to awesome attention to detail, creativity and imagination. Each image is clearly a part of the whole and the variety of layout and postproduction techniques make every page a brand new experience. The clarity of work, use of light and motion allows you to hear the surf whispering over the sand, enticing you to continue exploring. The presentation of art is a very personal experience to the viewer. Master Sculptor's works have honoured the female form in City Squares, Cathedrals and Galleries around the world for centuries. Nude in Paradise, for me, falls into this same class of art. It is tasteful, honourable and beautiful. It might catch some visitors off guard, depending onother titles that may grace your library or coffee table but I would expect that any who steal a glance will not stop at just one peak. This book respects the true connection of nature with little or no interference by man-made intrusions. Any aspiring photographer or artist will appreciate and can learn from Mark's use of pose, light, props, setting, mood and make-up. Digital artists can study an impressive use of photo manipulation techniques and image layout that make this so much more than just a book of photographs. Undoubtedly, those who have gained an appreciation for perfection in the presentation of the female form will find additional reasons to grow closer to their passion. Art is the conscious production or harmonious arrangement of sounds, colours, forms, movements or other elements in a manner that gives pleasure to the mind or senses. In every sense of this definition, Nude in Paradise is art. From the excellence of form, pose and presentation of Darla to the deep beauty of the setting, every aspect of this book is in harmony with one's senses and with nature. Darla is as natural to the beach setting as the lapping waves. She is in harmony with the Cloisters as is the ivy with the hewn stones. Mark Laurie's move to producing publicly available photographic publications is a natural progression. His years spent finely honing his skills can now be shared with a wider audience, allowing anyone to see just a little more beauty in our world. I welcome this transition and I highly recommend this book as a natural addition to any library of quality publications.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Journal of Light: The Visual Diary of a Florida Nature Photographer $26.09 In wonder and gratitude, prize-winning photographer John Moran travels the Sunshine State with his cameras, seeking his vision of natural Florida as it must have appeared to Ponce de Leon and other early strangers in paradise. This remarkable collection of images and essays celebrates the magic of a landscape born of water, he writes, and "blessed with beauty beyond measure." The book caps Moran's 20-year odyssey to discover the soul of one of the most photographed states in the country. Still, he says, for a photographer who works on the road, he doesn't get around very much. The outer limits of his travels ordinarily are defined by places close to home, with names like Live Oak, Cedar Key, and Micanopy. Working mostly in north and central Florida, Moran says his pictures consecrate a region "steeped in blackwater swamps and rivers, populated by egrets and alligators." Keenly aware that much of the state's wilderness has all but vanished, his pictures sometimes only suggest the illusion of unspoiled nature. "I can't tell you how often I've had to recompose my pictures to eliminate a beer can or a bed mattress or worse in the woods," he writes. At times, he's made his best pictures literally within sight of his car, "aware of my own impact on the land, mindful of the myth of untainted nature that I promote with my camera." He's also worked in unconventional situations, lying inside a homemade PVC pipe-and-burlap blind to photograph dancing sandhill cranes and perching inside a bucket truck 50 feet aboveground to photograph nesting ospreys. The companion essays reflect Moran'sphilosophy about both nature and photography, and they weave together personal narrative, natural history, and photo-technical instruction. They include commentary about the actual moment he snapped each picture, factual information about the place, and sometimes a historical perspective on the setting by such well-known writers and naturalists as William Bartram and Archie Carr. Moran emphasizes "making" pictures as opposed to casually taking them, and writes that his job can't be done without a plan and a specific set of tools and materials. But, he says, his job "isn't always about the picture, it's about the experience of just being there, chasing the light; alive and awake and aware." And he recalls some of the best advice he ever received: before you focus your camera, first focus yourself.

Reminiscences of people who grew up during the Depression, social workers' observations, and children's letters to Eleanor Roosevelt make up the accompanying text. CHILDREN OF THE DEPRESSION captures the spirit and grit of boys and girls as they went about their lives, at work, at play, at school, and at home?in images you will not soon forget. From the authors of the groundbreaking THE FACE OF OUR PAST: Images of Black Women from Colonial America to the Present.Author Biography: Kathleen Thompson is co-author with Darlene Clark Hine of A Shining Thread of Hope: The History of Black Women in America and co-editor with Hilary Mac Austin of The Face of Our Past: Images of Black Women from Colonial America to the Present.

She has received numerous awards for her work, including Best Books for Youth from the ALA in 1974 and the Gold Camera Award from the US Industrial Film Festival, but the one she treasures most is the ban on Against Rape by the apartheid government of South Africa.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Photoshop CS2 RAW $15.39 The RAW file format is the uncompressed data file captured by a digital camera's electronic sensor. When your camera saves an image in RAW format, settings like white balance, sharpening, contrast and saturation are not applied to the image but are saved instead in a separate header. Because RAW files remain virtually untouched by in-camera processing, they are essentially the digital equivalent to exposed but undeveloped film.This makes RAW an increasingly popular format with amateur and professional digital photographers, because it affords greater flexibility and control during the editing process-if you know how to work with RAW files.Most digital camera manufacturers supply their own software for converting RAW data, as do some third party vendors. Increasingly, however, the RAW converter of choice is a plug-in included in the latest version of Adobe Photoshop, the most popular and widely-used digital image editing tool in the world. Adobe Photoshop CS2 is emerging as the best place to edit RAW images, and the best way to master this new format is with Photoshop CS2 RAW.An important book dedicated to working with RAW in Photoshop, this comprehensive guide features a unique design that helps readers grasp the subject through visual instruction and prompts. The entire RAW process is explored, from shooting to using the Adobe plug-in converter and new Bridge navigation software. The primary focus of Photoshop RAW is, as the title suggests, Photoshop editing technique: automating RAW workflow, correcting exposures, extending exposure range, manipulating grayscale and working with the new DNG (Digital Negative) open standard that Adobe supports.Presented by photographer Mikkel Aaland, a pioneer of digital photography and author of eight books, including O'Reilly's Photoshop for the Web and the award-winning Shooting Digital, Photoshop CS2 RAW investigates and instructs in an accessible visual style. Required reading for professionals and dedicated photo hobbyists alike.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Canyon Wilderness of the Southwest (Deluxe Edition) $142.81 Straddling the borders of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico lies a magnificent wilderness known as the Colorado Plateau. Encompassing over 130000 square miles, it is a high, eroded tableland of rock, canyon, and desert, and within its boundaries are the greatest concentration of National Parks, National Monuments, State Parks, Wilderness areas, BLM holdings, and Native American tribal lands in America. There are thirteen geographical areas included in the book: Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Grand Gulch, Petrified Forest National Park, Hopi Tribal Lands, Grand Canyon National Park, Navajo Tribal Lands. Jon Ortner captures it all in this encompassing volume of full-color photographs. Packaged with a limited edition print signed by the photographer, this impressive collection features over 200 photographs accompanied by quotes from authors, travelers, and nature enthusiats who have fallen under the spell of this incredible region. Featuring the most extraordinary collection of multicolored landforms found anywhere on Earth, this remarkable assemblage of geological diversity and spectacular beauty attracts growing millions of US and foreign tourists every year. These time-worn canyons, mesas, and vast wind-swept deserts form the greatest expanse of exposed rock in North America. Without cover of dense vegetation or topsoil, the jagged skeleton of the earth is revealed, providing a continuous geological record spanning over 300 million years. Nowhere else is the ancient history of the planet laid bare in such a clear and dramatic way. Mesas, buttes, towers, spires, hoodoos, arches, windows, fins, domes, bridges, and badlands, all are infused with incomparable colors, creating a surreal world of chromatic rocks, tinted soils,and shimmering sand dunes. It is a luminous painting with hues that change with each hour of the day. These locations have long attracted photographers, but few have photographed with the unique 6x17cm Panorama Camera and modern fine-grain transparency films. The ruggedness of the land, the great distances to be traveled, and extreme weather conditions magnify the logistic difficulties of photographing in the deserts and narrow slot canyons of the Plateau. Transporting heavy photo equipment and film by backpack over long and difficult trails, presents both mental and physical challenges. And the desert is unforgiving of even the smallest errors, treating the unprepared harshly. But, for the few with passion, for those who are willing to begin their trek at the end of the road, the secret world of the high Southwest reveals its treasures. These photographs reflect the power and stunning beauty of these incomparable monuments to time and the inexorable forces of nature. It is a portrait of a wonderland of colored stone that is the eternal soul of Mother Earth, the foundation of the planet, and a reminder of the ultimate insignificance of man and his creations.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com A thermo-optically tunable optical filter with grating assisted asymme A thermo-optically tunable optical filter with grating assisted asymme $26.46 In optical communications, tunable filters play a crucial role of optical channel/wavelength selection, and reassignment, optical routing, optical switching, and network reconfiguration while in spectroscopy they can be used as wavelength scanners. In the investigation reported here an optical tunable filter based on grating assisted asymmetric waveguide coupling is developed at the communication wavelength of 1550nm and the filter's figures of merit measured to determine its viability in either optical communications systems or spectroscopic systems. Tuning of the optical filter is achieved by thermally varying the refractive index of the waveguide core material. The thermally sensitive polymer NOA61 is used as the waveguide core material. Based on this core material, the device structure is simulated and optimized using Beamprop software. Optical filters are then fabricated using standard photo-lithography techniques on GaAs wafers. Geometrical optics is used to couple light into the waveguide and the output at the other end of waveguide is observed using an IR camera. Once light is propagating through waveguide, a voltage is applied to waveguide device which heats the structure and causes a thermally varying refractive index in the material. This results in a change in the output power of device. The variation of optical power with changes in applied voltage is measured and the experimental results are compared with simulation results. Simulations suggest than a tuning bandwidth of over 50 nm can be achieved by tuning the input voltage from 0--3V.

Product Category: Media > Books Product brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Tree of Life Tree of Life $3.99 Two American students stumble upon the hiding place of the true cross of the crucifixion, triggering a race to unlock its secrets.At the age of twelve, Stuart Pierce prayed to God that his parents wouldn't divorce during a trial separation. God seemed to comply; his parents reconciled. The incident clashed with his atheistic upbringing, leaving Stuart with many questions. Now, as a twenty-year-old college student, he seeks answers. Best friend Roger Warren travels with him on a spiritual quest to Turkey where they discover a crater in which descendants of the original Apostles have guarded the true cross of the crucifixion for 2000 years.Exhausted from their climb to the crater rim, the young men see the village long-concealed within. As Roger snaps one photo, an earthquake throws him back down the rock face they had just scaled. The trembler hurls Stuart into the interior of the crater; he barely survives. His presence poses a dilemma for the ancient community; their sole contact with the outside world has been through the descendants of Simon of Cyrene.Roger and Stuart are missing; the only clue to their whereabouts is the photograph inside Roger's shattered camera that finds its way back to Los Angeles. Bryce Brinkman and her scheming assistant Earl Cole, both satellite-imaging researchers, recover the digital photograph. Father Rafael Romero, renowned authority on Byzantine churches, studies the picture of the crater, and finds his diminishing faith challenged by the golden church at its center. Stuart's Jewish girlfriend, Meredith Montgomery, conflicted by her attraction to Messianic Judaism, joins Stuart's parents to form a third search party.Unbeknownst to one another, the three search parties race across Turkey. While seismologists wrestle with whether to disclose foreknowledge of an impending earthquake, the monks guarding the cross see portents of an imminent, earth-shattering spiritual event. The trees surrounding the cross are bearing fruit for the first time in history, but is it the fruit of life or death?

Enhancing photographs using content-specific image priors. $26.46 The digital imaging revolution has made the camera ubiquitous; however, image quality has not improved at the same rate as the increase in camera availability. Increasingly more cameras are small, with inexpensive lenses, no flash, and lightweight bodies that are difficult to hold steady, and this results in images with blur, noise, and poor color-balance. Consequently, there is a strong need for simple, automatic, and accurate methods for image correction. This dissertation, presents work that uses "content-specific" image models and priors for image enhancement.;Image enhancement is a challenge problem---corrections such as deblurring, denoising, and color-correction are ill-posed, where the number of unknown values outweighs the number of observations. As a result, it is necessary to add additional information as constraints. Previous work has focused on using generic image priors that are applicable to a large number of images. In this work, we develop constraints that are tuned to the specific content of an image.;First, we discuss a fast, accurate blur estimation method that models all edges in a sharp image as step-edges. The method predicts the "sharp" version of a blurry input image and uses the two images together to solve for a PSF.;Second, we discuss a framework for image deblurring and denoising that uses local color statistics to produce sharp, low-noise results. Even when the blur function is known, deblurring an image is still quite difficult due to information loss during blurring and due to the presence of noise. In our work, we investigate using local-color statistics of an image in a joint framework for deblurring and denoising of images.;Lastly, we discuss work in methods that use "identity-specific" priors to perform corrections for images containing faces. These priors provide the guidance needed to perform high-quality corrections needed for known, familiar faces. Deblurring, super-resolution, color-balancing, and exposure correction operate independently, so that a user can correct selected image properties, while still retaining certain desired qualities of the original photo. We have also developed a prototype application for performing these corrections.

The Artist's Conundrum: An Oil Painter's Journal $7.99
Specs: 99 entries; 34200 Words; 94 Oil paintings by the author.Students of art and conoisseurs alike will appreciate this perspective from an artist, and Copley Master, making a living in today's world. The Artist's Conundrum: An Oil Painter's Journal is an account of the hazards in being a landscape painter: whether it is the child who leans on the artist to touch the wet canvas or the focused painter sitting in the rising tide; from the vicissitudes of being an unwitting street performer to a handout about the history of the mahl stick. It is the story of a kayaker drowning off-shore while the artist and his wife continue to paint and the whales dive in unison just a few feet away from the French easel.The artist searches for new ways of seeing and studies optical effects like diffusion and halation and happens upon the camera obscura aberations of floating highlights on headlights in the fog. He learns of a unique drawing technique in a dream and describes a visitation by the masters to the studio. The author discusses the beauty of arsenic induced flesh tones, the symbolism of elements in still-lifes and the habits of the eye. From the maudlin to the sublime, the artist struggles to elevate his work beyond just a photo-copying of the subject while his audience comes to him searching for "tickle imagination paintings". The author is party to the ramblings of a figure painting group named the Depressionists with a member who bargains down the price of his work. There is the tale of a secret mission when the sketcher leaves an anonymous drawing in a coffee shop and the embarrassment of embracing the wrong girlfriend (twice) while on a museum trip. There is the mystery of a Q-tip and note found in a Rhode Island School of Design mailbox. There are unanswerable questions by tourists on location and a photographer who steals his composition. These writings describe the artist at play, with his ode to organic pigments and the joy of biking under the moon to an excerpt where a detective reveals that an imposter is, in fact, an artist. This is an honest account of an artist at work supporting a family and the struggle between the inspirational world of aesthetics and the demands of the commercial. Beginning with early training at an atelier and a graphic design job staring at a monitor to a turn back towards the analog world and carving inscriptions in slate without an "undo" command. This is the path that led the artist to a shared studio/gallery, an artist wife, and happily engaged with the Muse.
